So much to share… and giveaway!

Can you believe Christmas is only 10 days away?  Eek.  I fell like we got shortchanged only have 3 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. 🙂

But, I have lots to share.  And as a reward for listening, I have a giveaway.

First, many of Hero Arts stamps are now available in stores!  Woohoo!  Here are two online stores I know that have tons of it: 2Peas and StampinTreasures.  You can buy the whole catalog there, too.  The stamps available now are only the ones that were part of the Catalog Debut. There will be more new ones coming out at the beginning of January!

And since Hero stamps are made in the USA, we know they will be available on time and rarely on backorder. :) 

Wanna see my faves?

Come on… aren't they too cute??


Great stuff, huh?  Watch those wallets. 🙂

Also!  I am the blogger this week on Hero's blog HERE.  Please come say hi and tell Kelly Goree how much we love having her on our blog.  She is a gem.  A true sweetie. We are doing some fun things with sketches… with lots of prizes for this week's challenge.  Today we used new hero stamps and BG papers.  Here is another card I did with my scraps/reject pieces…

Hero Arts Pattern Hearts and Thank You
Basic Grey Bittersweet papers and buttons
White embossing powder
Black Memories Ink
Hero Arts Pearls
Fiskars border punch

OK… giveaway talk.  I have a bunch of things to pass along.  And thanks to a donation to help with shipping, I will be giving a lot away between now and Christmas.  I would say that there will be a giveaway every single day, but I fear I may miss a day.  :)  So lets just say there will be many – so keep coming back.  Today's is a small one but a good one.  Just leave a comment on this post by Thursday at 11:59pmEDT telling me if you have sent your holiday cards yet (if you are sending them) and I will pick a random winner of these two BasicGrey rub-ons.  (I love them!)  


And… no… I haven't even recieved my card order.  And I have to add to them.  And address them.  And mail them.  And finish my sister-in-laws cards.  And address them.  And mail them.  Eek. 🙂

Off to work!  Night. 🙂

  1. Yes, I have had them out for about a week. I cheated since I am so busy this season and sent store bought cards. I know, totally not the same!

  2. I managed to get 50 done for the office and 10 for the house so I’ll call it a day and move on to the next item on the “to do” list!
    Love the rub-ons….
    Merry Christmas everyone!

  3. I had an issue with my card order, so I had to re-order and hopefully will be sending them out by the end of the week!

  4. i actually just got the last bout of cards out two days ago – it took me four mailings to get them all out, but sometimes it takes time to put the cards together. 🙂

  5. Yep, done, fineto! I’m so glad that’s one thing I can remove from the long list of to-dos yet hanging over my head.

  6. No, I still need to get my cards in the mail, but I’m making them so, hopefully, they will arrive at their destination by Christmas Eve. I really like your site and your designs. Thank you.

  7. I have them ready to put in the envelopes ( I cheated and did the photo cards this year)–but they are not in the mail yet. Maybe tomorrow?

  8. Today I am sending my cards!!! I didn’t have much time lately, a lot of traveling (not plannning), then my FIL passed and sick family.
    Oh well, I am glad I made some cards before.

    I hope I win!!!
    God bless

  9. i wont be sending them out this year, i just
    started scrapping this year, and i am totally amazed at how big this is, almost like a universal hobby! its so exciting, and sometimes overwhelming but all same, i love it! and so anyway i think i will take on that christmas card advenure next year….and to all may your christmas be full of Gods blessings and full of scrappin:)

  10. My cards are all sent, except for the few people that I can’t find addresses for for one reason or another. I should probably get those done, huh?

  11. Sent them already on the first of December.BUT I feel like I cheated :). It’s one of those cards that you order online and drop your pictures in. It’s not homemade. I’m just learning to make cards. I am amazed by the beautiful cards you created.You have inspired me so much that I now own a cuttlebug and couple of hero arts stamps. So by next year, I’m sure I’ll be sending a homemade Christmas cards.

  12. This may be the first time ever that I’ve not sent holiday cards! I will send some through e-mail but that’s it. Next year cards will be homemade and sent out for sure!!

  13. No I have not! 🙁 And I really don’t think I am either! I’m laid up with a fractured ankle and though I can find hours upon hours to sit here at the computer, I can’t muster up the motivation needed to make or even adress premade cards!! Sorry, but this Christmas cards 🙁

  14. Yes! I put them in the mailbox on Monday morning. I had them finished by Thanksgiving-bu the inside needed some bells and whistles. So this past weekend I was putting in some overtime.

  15. I absolutely LOVE the Japanese dolls. I picked some up (as a gift — I refrained for myself). Super cute. Love what you did with the leftover scraps.

    No cards our out in the mail yet. But we just placed our order last night, so that’s a big step for us! haha! And thank goodness for Avery labels. What a quick way to address the envelopes!

  16. no cards this year….just couldn’t get my act together. maybe I will send one out around Easter

  17. I am ashamed to say that I have neither made or sent out my cards yet. May be looking at some New Year’s cards instead. Thanks so much for the inspiration on your blog.

  18. Glad to hear I’m not the only one with cards left to send! I’ve sent our overseas cards off to family and friends, but have yet to get the “locals” out. My guilt increases with each card we receive…

  19. Yes, mine went out the first of December! I try to stay on top of them each year, and had them printed the first week of November. Now I have no worries and can focus on baking!

  20. As usual, I’m late with them. Every year, I’m bound to make them myself but who am I kidding, with a 4 year old and a 3 year old…
    The cards have been ordered and they’re on they’re way to me and one will be on it’s way to you 🙂
    Thanks to you Jennifer, I did make Christmas Cards to hold gift cards for my boys’ preschool teachers and teacher’s assistants. Eight to be exact!

  21. Oh my I just realized that it’s just next week! eeeekkk
    I hope to get them made and sent. I have everything but time.
    Love love love the rubons. How do you get all this done and have little ones too?????
