Welcome to another fabulous Tuesday! It's a short week here in the US with our upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and I'm feeling super thankful today! Thankful for this super fun hobby that I get to share with awesome peeps like you gals, and thankful for so many other things. :)

Anyway, it's Tuesday and you know that means another Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge! Did you know you can win stamp sets or discounts on stamp sets by participating in our challenges?! Check it out, you may be a winner for playing along in our fun sketch challenge!

Here is another rockin' sketch from our Guest Sketch Artist this month, Shannan Teubner.

Awhile back our DT member Brenda posted on her blog a challenge to do something out of your comfort zone, to break some of the "rules" you have in crafting. Well, I finally did it on this card! I'm normally not a fan of white and kraft together. No clue why, but usually don't mix the two. I actually really like how these colors came together and it felt good to "break the rules" I imposed upon myself. ;)

The snowflakes from Sassy Snow were embossed in clear ep, and then I rubbed the white craft pad over the cardstock. Wiped away the ink from the embossed snowflakes, and then added some dots from Garden Stamp Kiss over top of the snowflakes.

We actually got dumped on with snow on Sunday and are expecting another 8-15 inches today and tomorrow...so I guess I'm all in the wintery weather mode with this card! Notice the white trim? That's some more from the Winter Wonderland pack of trims from the super sweet Lesley of Christopher Pines.

Now how about some SALE info?! Starting today....it's PINK TUESDAY!

For every $25 you spend you get a $5 gift certificate ....The Gift certificates are good for 1 year, and you can use them starting Black Friday.... You can add up the gift certificates and give them as a gift, or buy stamps as a gift and keep the certificate for yourself!!! The certificates will be mailed with the stamps. However, if you would like to use the certificate before you get your stamps just email Heather and she will be sure to refund the certificate amount off of any purchase made Friday or later.

As an added bonus EVERY Pink Tuesday order will receive a limited edition 3"X 4" stamp set absolutely FREE!!! That is a $7.49 value!

SSD stamps make the perfect gift for the crafters on your list! So...give the gift of laughter this Christmas with SSD stamps.

We have gift certificates available in any amount. Just email Heather with the amount you would like and she will send you an invoice. The gift certificate will be mailed to any address you like! If you would like a gift note enclosed with your certificate just let her know.

Gift certificates of $30 or more will come with a FREE 3"X 4" or Larger stamp set. That way you have a little something to wrap up and present with the gift certificate!!!

SSD DOES Exchanges: you don't even have to go stand in line!

Give the gift of laughter this Christmas. You don't have to worry if they will like the stamps or not, as they can exchange the stamps for anything in our inventory.

Kandi, I always love your button/snowflake treatments! And I'm going to have to take a look at that Garden Kiss set, I've seen you use it before and you do such a great job with it.

I love baby blue and kraft for Christmas cards. It gives such a "feel"!!
I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!
