Well, if you snoozed, you loozed out on the great deals from Online Extravaganza, which ended yesterday. The last order went in last night! But good news! All is not lost, because today, Stampin' Up! has announced FREE SHIPPING all day long, Cyber Monday! That's like 10% off everything in the catalogues! WAIT!!

Order will go in at 8:00 pm. But because there are no minimum orders on this, you could submit your own order online and not worry about that high flat rate shipping charge because - IT WON'T BE THERE! Just head over to my On-Line Store and shop to your heart's content. Just be done by 10:55 pm.!!  If your order is less than $200, please use the Hostess Code:    Q2CT33CB when placing your order online. If you do, I will include a package of Rhinestone Basic Jewels with your order, free from me as a thank you! And who doesn't need a little extra bling over the holidays??

Today, I want to share a card with you that I made to show you more of the benefits of the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. This card has a layout that follows a sketch that I love from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #314:

I took a swirl that I had die cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and I coloured it using the darker shade of my Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends marker. Because it's an alcohol marker, and permanent, you can colour all sorts of things, Glimmer Paper included. You just don't want to do it a lot with the same marker, because it has the potential to ruin the brush nib of the pen. Conversely, you could purchase an alcohol marker of each colour eventually just for the purpose of colouring other objects. Let's see if you can find anything else that I coloured with my Stampin' Blends:
