My New Love is EBATES

So I have a new love. It is Ebates! I absolutely am trying to figure it out why I did not join it earlier.

I click on Ebates. Then type in my favorite store. Ebates takes me to that stores web site. I then shop and pay like normal! It is that easy!

They also list coupon codes for many of the stores. I have saved money at Walmart, Target, Toms, NoMoreRack and so many more! If I am going to spend money anyway...I might as well get some back!

All you need to do to start saving is click the below link. You will automatically get a $10 gift card with your first purchase through Ebates!

Happy earning!!!!!

Melissa's giveaway includes:

Prima Flowers


Now for my projects!
One thing with many brand new have to "season" them before you use them on a project. By seasoning stamps you usually have to stamp them a couple of times to get a nice clear full image. Stamps from A Creative Journey with Melissa you do not! The cards below were stamped with the Sign Language Numbers-American Sign Language only 1 time!

Here is my favorite Christmas card I have made this year. I loved it cause it has a cut out that is connected by 2 trees that are embossed for some texture. It is a simple card but has a lot of punch. What do you think???
Now do you see how cute this is???? So here is a close up of the stamp that was only stamped once!
See how clear and crisp it is????
Now for my second project. I wanted to make a card for my niece who will be 3 next year. It cracks me up cause most kids hold up the typical 3 fingers. When she says 3 with her hands...she does it the American Sign Language way!
What it is so cute about this card is how simple it is. I used two cute girl colors a pink and a soft plum for the backround. The cupcake is on a wobble so it will be fun when she opens it and wobbles all over! The "You" and "Are" are also from A Creative Journey with Melissa and are the Everyday Outline Upper and Lower Case stamp set.
I hope you enjoyed my creations this month. Remember after you follow my blog, answer my question...then hop over to Melissa's and do the same for the rest of the ladies! Don't forget to share so you can win not only a prize from Melissa but from me as well!
