Want to be a guest designer for The 12 Kits Of Occasions?
 Sharron is the hostess who is putting together and sending out the kits for January.
She has put together one extra kit that could be for you!
She would send you the kit for you to create projects to share along with us on the last day of January.
Sound like fun?
Head over to the 12 Kits blog to enter. 
The winner will be announced on this month's reveal, December 31st!
This is from Kara’s blog post …..she just said it so well.

Not sure why I waited so long to buy Stitches & Swirls Stamp Set but glad I ordered it before the 
15th now I have both the new and old.  I have always loved this set!
Hello! Hope you are all having a nice weekend.
 We kinda took the day off even though I still have so much to do.  So... the windows wont be cleaned inside and out… I did them just before Thanksgiving. We did have a fun day! a bit of fun shopping , early morning movie ( Mr. Banks) great movie, lunch a bit of more shopping … PotteryBarn, then home to get ready for mass. I baked just a bit when we got home. 

Hope you have a great day!

 Everything on this card is from Papertrey Ink….. but the Lil Inkers Design stitched matts.


  1. Gorgeous card!
    Love the stitched flowers in the corner.
    Great sentiment too.
    I should give this a try myself.
    I've got this stampset as well and the little hearts die too.
    The card has a fresh finished look in white and pink, very feminine!:-)
    Talking about cleaning windows, sigh, Christmas is looming and I still have to do mine on the inside....well I think I put my daughter to work to have those cleaned.
    So I can do all the other things that needs to be done before Christmas!
    Thanks for your sweet comments, much appreciated!
    And I just want to wish you and all those who are dear to you a wonderful and merry Christmas and many blessings for the new year!!
    And I hope you'll be making more of those gorgeous and creative cards as the ones you've made this year!!!
    Have a wonderful time!
    Bye and hugs,


  2. So pretty. Love the white on pink stamping!

  3. Love this bright pink. The stitched flowers are so pretty and the shiny hears make it so sweet. Lovely card.

  4. Marybeth this is a beautiful card. I do not have either of these BFF does, so I may have to "borrow" from her! Your card is so lovely. I wish you and your family a very MERRY Christmas! with as many grandchildren as you have, your house will be filled with love, laughter and lots of noise I am sure! Enjoy it all and have a blessed day!

  5. Oooooh what a pretty card Marybeth! I have had my eye on that set for a long time too, but still do not own it. After the solids came out, not I'm adding it to my wish list. I've bought way too much stampy stuff in the last couple of months to buy anything right now. And I would think if the windows had been cleaned before Thanksgiving that's good enough! Have a wonderful and very merry Christmas! (Hugs)

  6. Marybeth, just wanted to add: Thank you so much for adding this to the Seize the Birthday link! I love the cards your enter in this challenge!!

  9. Oh how I love this pink (my favorite!) card, Marybeth--the row of hearts is such a neat element with those pretty blooms! Just entered the 12 Kits contest--would be fun to join you guys next month.

  10. So pretty! Love all the pink and the hearts! Merry Christmas to you and family!

  11. What a perfectly pretty pink card Marybeth!! Everything flows together beautifully! Sounds like a wonderful day. We went to an extended family Christmas party at a bowling alley! We had fun, but are both sore today!!! Didn't know you used so many muscles to bowl LOL!!! Kneeling at Mass this morning proved to be a bit tough getting up!!!

  12. Gorgeous card Marybeth, you made that stamp set awesome!! Merry Christmas to you and yours my friend, enjoy the holidays!

  13. This is just gorgeous. One of the nicest cards I have seen using Stitches & Swirls. I need to pin this one, because I have this set, too. That row of hearts is a great addition.
