Hi Patty,

I am reading about your black Friday special. I love the special on Monday--the one that includes the scrapbook, and all the project life objects that go with it. That is fantastic, and makes scrapbooking so fast. I also like the beautiful ribbon that is on special. SU has the most beautiful ribbon.
Thank you, too, for the nice double offer on your free product offer of 40.00. I have received some really nice things from you because of your double special. Thanks again for all you do for us.
Hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful in every way, surrounded by the people you love best.
Best wishes,



ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD!!! And the tag topper punch---but with the EPB price---I will definitely order that!!! Too good a deal to pass up! Sharon Sweeny Russell, Oak Island, NC --aka OKIStampqueen.blogspot.com


Love the SU papers! They just make such a difference to your cards or any craft work you are making. Such good quality and such gorjuss colours! And so hard to chose which ones I want/need/must have!
(I haven't entered to win as I don't live in the USA, I just love the SU papers!)
Sunshine, New Zealand
P.S. You look great in fatigues and YES! You should enlist! But keep on making your cards!

Just put in a large order last Monday for myself and a workshop where the most popular item was the DSP! I have also been putting off getting the baker's box die, but no more! It should arrive next week!! Thanks for the blog candy offer!


Hi! I loved the DSP specials and am sad that lasted just one day. I am also thrilled to see stamp sets for items not in the catalog! Exciting!! Of course, the Adhesive special is great too - one can never have too much adhesive. Or anything else from SU, for that matter!

So excited. I think my favorite black Friday sales are everything!! But if I have to pick something, I think it is the punches. It's a great way to get them at a discounted price.
