Furry Friends

Welcome back to day 2 of our
partnership with Core'dinations!! 

We loved all the comments you 
left us yesterday... keep em' coming 
and you'll be in the running to win 
*3* stamp sets from SSS and head 
over to Core and be sure to give some 
love to them for some sweet cardstock!

Laura is showing off her mad skilz with 
Core and Sweet... check out this card that 
she made...

She dry embossed the paper and used the nifty 
sander to reveal the green color... it's so cool!

One might even say magical~ :) 

Look at how cool that core looks up close! 

She grabbed one of my favorite sets 
Furry Friends! 

You can check it out at the shop 

Also, did you know we have a 
monthly challenge here at SSS... 

Here are some of the details...


Ready to play along for this month's challenge? Make sure you read the rules below!

Here's how to play along:
  • Create a NEW project with our newly released SWEET stamps (see below) 
  • Add the logo (above) to your blog post including your project (please link back to this post so your friends can see where to join in on the fun!)
  • Link up your project by Sunday April 29 at 11:59pm PST

The ONLY stipulation to this challenge... you MUST use stamps from a newly released set (from this release or the previous release). You can mix and match them however you want, we just want to see what you can create with our newest sweet stamps!

You CAN enter more than once, we LOVE to see lots of new inspiring projects, but you can only win one prize in a month. Entering more than once does not increase your chances of winning.
