Borderling Buddies

Hi and welcome. Its been a few weeks since I have blogged. I ended up getting some nasty bug, which kept me down for just over a week~week before Easter of course. I still have a couple of effects of that cold/virus. A nasty cough and my ears are plugged. Then to top it off my knee has been giving me problems too. I guess I really should go to the doctor to see whats going on with that.

Anyways, its WEDNESDAY, and Borderling Buddies has returned. My BFF Susan was off for a few weeks, she ended up having surgery at the end of March. I told her I would come and visit her, however after I checked out the airfare to her town, decided that it might need to wait till we meet up at Convention as the price was more than what I pay to go to Convention in Utah.

So this weeks challenge was from Susan. She said have you checked out Frenchies blog? For those who don't know who Frenchie is, she is Frenchie Martin ( ) Frenchie had posted Inchies. As she posted "inchies" are typically 1-2 1/2 inches big. I prefer them to be a little bit bigger. Mine are 3 inches square. My team and I (ok there was 3 of us) met up at Christmas time and we did an Inchie swap, requirements were they must be 3x3, and had to be in the blue color scheme. I think I posted the end result here I think they turned our really nice.

Stampin' Up! Everyday Occasions card kit

This kit was introduced earlier this year. This kit contains everything you need to make 20 all occasion cards. I made up some of these this past Saturday while I was at a trade show. 

Here is one of the cards that I made while I was at the trade show. I did find I required some other adhesive besides the dimensionals it comes with. This kit is priced at $36.95 I have a few of these on hand and we are allowed to sell these as Cash/Carry items. Please contact me if you are interested in one of these kits.

Thanks for lookin and have a Stampin' Day!

Borderline Buddies

Happy Wednesday!! You all know what day it is. Its Borderline Buddies Day!! This week will be our last for a few weeks as Miss Susan had some MAJOR surgery done on Monday. In the interm, I will be posting past My Paper Pumpkin kit samples. I thought it would be easier for Susan to work on something that was sent to us, already prepackaged and just waiting for us to open it.

Your My Paper Pumpkin comes delivered between the 15th and 17th of each month, it is a monthly subscription. Here in CANADA your price is $24.95, and as you can see the kit includes everything in the box you do not need anything else to finish the cards. Ok I lied, you will need a Stampin' Scrub to clean your stamps after using them. If you would like to subscribe to MPP you can go to my personal link:

This months kit (March 2014) has enough supplies to create 8 cards, plus envelopes and gold foil liners for the envelopes! The Thank you and Congrats, are wood embellishments. Something a little different. I have to go back and finish up the other six cards that came in the box still. 

Now go over to Susan's blog to check out what she created (though it should be very similar to what I have posted)

Thanks for lookin' and have a Stampin' day!
