Stampin’ Up! Toile Peaceful Beautiful Boughs

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Hope you had a great weekend wherever you are!  Yesterday was a BIG day – we opened the windows first thing in the morning and left them open ALL DAY!!  Whoo-hoo!!  A sure sign of Fall in Georgia!

My card today indulges my love of pines – cones, boughs, whatever! – and collages!  I used the pretty Peaceful Boughs and bundled Beautiful Boughs – atop a little Toile Tidings DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And since Christmas is for-sure an “Occasion” – I’m playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Real Red buffalo check from the Toile Tidings DSP – matted on Garden Green for the card front.

The art is on a piece of Very Vanilla, matted on Garden Green.  I used my Stamparatus to add the large pine bough image from Peaceful Boughs in stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow in the corner.  Around it, I stamped the splatter image a few times in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake ink.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

With the Beautiful Boughs Dies, I cut some Garden Green and Vellum card stock boughs.  The vellum boughs I cut up so I’d have some pieces to stick into my arrangement.

I also cut some detailed Pine Cones in Gold Foil and the solid pine cones in Early Espresso (I adhered them together with Liquid Glue).

Finally – I pulled out the Frosted Bouquet Die set (annual catalog) and cut two berries from Real Red Glimmer Paper.

With all the pieces and parts ready, I began to assemble my collage.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the pine boughs and Glimmer berries around near the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.

I adhered the larger pine cone with Liquid Glue and then adhered the smaller with a Dimensional.

I stamped the Peaceful Boughs sentiment in Real Red on Very Vanilla card stock, and added a few stamped-off-once Crumb Cake splatter around – then cut it with the smaller sentiment die in Beautiful Boughs.

I tied a double-length simple bow from Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot, then popped the sentiment on with Dimensionals.

I added some small Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (from the upcoming Christmastime is Here Suite – available on 1 Nov) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow pine bough and a second sentiment in Real Red to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I nestled a few more Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Early Espresso card base, and also used Liquid Glue to adhere the card front (since it’s already pretty thick!) and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another of the stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow pine boughs on the front…

…and put some more of the Toile Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – not gonna fib ya – I.  Love.  How.  This.  Card.  Turned.  Out!!  🙂  Plaid – Check.  Pines – Check.  Collage – Yep!  I love love love the Peaceful Boughs bundle – the images, sentiments and bundled Beautiful Boughs Dies are…wonderful!!  And – no one needs to extol the virtues of Toile Tidings, do they??  I hope you like!

We spent the day at Costco yesterday – almost literally.

Bought some new flooring that we’ll get down….someday!

Took two trips – one to find that they still had it – and one to take the truck and trailer back to pick it up.

Finn accompanied us on the second trip!

Love riding with the Mom and Dad in the truck!

Are we there yet??

Stampin’ Up! Yummy Night Before Christmas

Good Sunday to y’all!  Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay – here ’tis!!

I pulled out the Yummy Christmas stamp set – and the matching Cuckoo Clock Dies (this die set is available in the Annual Catalog – bundled with the Cuckoo For You stamp set….so you’ll get a lot of bang for the 10%-savings-buck!).  I set some of the trees against a little Night Before Christmas DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

And I played along with the As You See It Theme challenge!

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla and matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.  I also matted a strip of Cherry Cobbler paper from the Night Before Christmas DSP on some Mossy Meadow and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the holly sprig image from Yummy Christmas in Tuxedo Black twice under the matted DSP panel.  I used my Light and Dark Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color the images.

The art panel is a square of Very Vanilla, embossed in the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder, matted on Mossy Meadow and popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped three trees from Yummy Christmas and three more of the holly images in Tuxedo Black.  I cut the trees and holly with the dies in the Cuckoo Clock Dies.  I colored all the images with Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede Blends – plus the Dark Pineapple Punch Blend (for some of the ornaments).  I used a Blender Pen to color the “garland” with Golden Glitz Delicata Ink.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to tuck the die cut holly berries under the art panel.

With two lengths of Linen Thread, I tied a big, loose simple bow and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the three trees together with Liquid Glue and popped them onto the embossed square with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiments from Yummy Christmas in Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow then fussy cut them.  I edged the strips with my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker – then adhered the three strips to the card with Liquid Glue.

I added a gold faceted star (from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley) to each tree and a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (from the new Christmastime is Here Suite – which you’ll be able to pick up on 1 Nov!) – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the Yummy Christmas holly berry image to the corners of a Very Vanilla panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them with my Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.  I stuck a tiny Gold Glitter Enamel Dot by each holly sprig.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Yummy Christmas holly sprig on the front…

…and some more of the Night Before Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love it when Stampin’ Up! gives us a new stamp set – like Yummy Christmas – that just so happens to coordinate with a die set we might already have!  And – even if we don’t – it’s a die that we can get with another stamp set (like the Cuckoo For You set and bundled Cuckoo Clock Dies!) AND save some dough! Any way you look at it – the Yummy Christmas and Cuckoo Clock Dies work perfectly to make a fun Christmas card, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Most Wonderful Greatest Part of Christmas!

Morning, y’all – it’s FRIDAY!!  Whoo-hooo!  Hope you have big plans for the weekend – and the weather to enjoy them!  WE are finally – FINALLY!! – getting some Fall days!  Thank the Lord! 🙂

My card today celebrates not Fall – but Christmas!  The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley and the Greatest Part Of Christmas (a Host-Exclusive set) came together for…take a look-see:

Now – the layout for this one came from a My Favorite Things sketch challenge – but…I did a bad job of checking when the challenge ended!


But the theme plays perfectly with The Paper Players challenge!

I started with one of the thicker gold foil card fronts in the Most Wonderful Time Medley – the white with Gold stars – and adhered a smaller star-strewn Old Olive pattern from the included DSP to create the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the big tree image from Most Wonderful Time in Old Olive and cut it with the matching die.

Next, I pulled out the Greatest Part Of Christmas stamp set and stamped the sentiment in Real Red on Whisper White.  I cut it with a Stitched Shapes Die.

To make the presents, I used my Stamparatus to first stamp the presents in Real Red or Old Olive.  The stamp has three presents on it – so you get three at a time!  I added the ribbons in Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink.  Then I cut them all out with the matching die in the Most Wonderful Time Dies (which are part of the Medley!).

I popped the Christmas tree onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added the sentiment with Liquid Glue on the left side and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the right side.

I arranged all my die-cut presents and adhered them with Liquid Glue or Stampin’ Dimensionals.  All it needed to finish it all off was a single gold faceted star from the Most Wonderful Time Medley at the top of the tree!

On the inside, I added a second Greatest Part of Christmas sentiment in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Around it, I scattered some stars from Most Wonderful Time in Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink.  Then I adhered one of the die-cut presents with Liquid Glue.  And I added one more gold faceted star – cuz I like ’em! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Most Wonderful Time stars in Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink on the front…

…and more of the Old Olive DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s crazy fun how many goodies come packed in the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley!  Really – ust add the “staples” and you’re all ready to go – with the stamp set and matching dies, foil-accented card fronts, Designer Series Paper, and pretty stickers and embellishments!  Do be sure to check it out.  And – while you’re at it – take a gander at the Host Exclusive Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set.  I hope you like!

Like that Greatest Part of Christmas host set?  Get THAT one with Stampin’ Rewards from a workshop (or even an individual order!!) over $150!  Holler at me and let me help you get it for yourself!

Finn Fan Fix


Just want to show y’all what a good helper the Finn-man is!

Last night on our walk, Wayne asked him to carry one of his water bottles back to the house.

So…he did!

We kept waiting for him to get tired of it and drop it, but…

As we got closer to the house…(excuse my goofy-sounding narrative – I was trying to get him to look back so you could see the bottle in his mouth!!).  DO check the pantaloon-swing!

 

 

…we figured there was one of two ways this was going to go…one leaving the water still in the bottle and drinkable and one…not so much!

Got lucky!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Spooktacular Monster Bash for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a fun sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I figured a Halloween card was in order – since there’s only a couple three more weeks until the big day!  So…I pulled out some of my favorite new DSP – the Monster Bash DSP – and the fun Spooktacular Bash bundle.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch – I stayed pretty close to the mark, I think.

And I figured I’d play along with the Stamp Ink Paper challenge!

I cut two likely pieces of the Monster Bash DSP and used some Liquid Glue to adhere them to a Crushed Curry mat.  I adhered that to a second mat in Pumpkin Pie to make the card front.

Using SNAIL across the seam between the two designs, I laid down a length of Basic Black 3/8″ Scalloped Edge Ribbon, securing it on the back with Glue Dots.

I used a Circles Layering Die to cut a Pumpkin Pie circle that I embossed in the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder and popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With an Ornate Frames Die – bundled with the Spooktacular Bash stamp set – I cut a frame from Crushed Curry and popped over the embossed circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Spooktacular Bash, is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a strip of Crushed Curry using my Stamparatus.  I snipped a banner end and edged the strip with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker.  I used Liquid Glue on the left end to adhere it to the circle – and a double-stack of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the other end.

I cut my fave character from the Monster Bash DSP – she looks so sly and up-to-no-good, doesn’t she?!? – with a circle Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it over the sentiment/circle with Liquid Glue.

I added a Pumpkin Pie gem from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment strip and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment and an image from the Spooktacular Bash set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I used my Granny Apple Green, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Markers to color the image.  Then I added another Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie mat, then into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another of the Spooktacular Bash images on the front…

…and some more Monster Bash DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So – yea.  It’s true.  Halloween isn’t my BIG HOLIDAY of the year!  But…I have to admit that I am really loving the Spooktacular Bash stamp set with it’s bundled Ornate Frames Dies.  And Monster Bash DSP has some seriously fun designs!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Brightly Gleaming Ornaments Christmas Card

Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!! How’s your week going?  Good, I hope!

My card today is a Christmas card – in non-traditionalish colors.  I used the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP and the Christmas Gleaming bundle.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the interesting sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

And that non-traditionalish color scheme is from the TGIF Color Challenge!

I started with a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock.  Across the top, in Celestial Copper Delicata Ink, I stamped the small ornament image from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a shorter panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to create the divided card front.

I ran a length of SNAIL across the seam and used it to adhere some Pretty Peacock 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon – with some Glue Dots on the back, too.

I cut the largest circle Stitched Shapes die from a piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock and stamped that same small Christmas Gleaming ornament in Celestial Copper Delicata Ink. Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the circle onto the card front.

With my Stamparatus, I stamped three of the large Christmas Gleaming ornaments in the Celestial Copper Ink on Crumb Cake.  When it was good and dry, I punched them with the matching Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (bundled with Christmas Gleaming).

I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue and a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Christmas Gleaming, is stamped in Pretty Peacock on Grapefruit Grove and fussy cut.  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added three little bows from Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine with Glue Dots, some Star Designer Elements and a Pretty Peacock gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Christmas Gleaming.  Using a sticky note – I masked off the “&” on the stamp and inked the remainder with Pretty Peacock ink.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock on Crumb Cake card stock.  In the corner, I used a sticky note mask to layer a couple of ornaments in Celestial Copper Ink. TIP:  stamp the “front” ornament first.  Cover with mask.  Stamp the “back” ornament.  When dry – remove the mask and…boom!  Another Star Designer Element finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more layered ornaments in Celestial Copper on the front…

…and the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This card sort of grew on me as I played with the fun Christmas Gleaming stamped ornaments and punched them with their matching Gleaming Ornaments punches.  The color scheme plays well with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP and Copper accents, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! A Christmas Countdown Big Thank You for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Giving Thanks!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

So – I figured that we all learned that it’s the right/polite/courteous thing to do to send thank you cards – and with Christmas coming, it’s Thank You Card season!  I used the Christmas Countdown stamp set (I TOLD you it’s a great set for more than just the Countdown Project Kit!!) and the A Big Thank You stamp set to make a quick set of 6 notecards.  Take a look-see:

I called heavily on the Stamparatus to make this card – which let me get 6 (with envelopes!) – done very quickly!

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the pine bough image from Christmas Countdown in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I also stamped the Thanks sentiment from the A Big Thank You in Night of Navy. I put each stamp on an acrylic plate and stamped the six card fronts quick like a bunny!

I used my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color all the berries and my Light and Dark Mossy Meadow Blends to color the leaves.

Using the scattered stars image in Christmas Countdown, I stamped around the pine bough in Golden Glitz Delicata Ink. Tip – be sure to let that Delicata ink dry!!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the card fronts to Night of Navy mats and then to the fronts of my Whisper White Note Cards.

I added a Night of Navy gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card fronts were done!

The inside is super simple – just some more Golden Glitz Delicata stars here and there….

And I finished off the front of the matching envelopes in the same way!

I stacked them up and wrapped some 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around it…boom!  Perfect gift, yes??

Et Voila!  Less than hour (and much of that was waiting for the Delicata ink to dry!) and I had a wonderful little set of notecards and envelopes! Since the Christmas Countdown set is an image-only set – you can pair it up with any sentiment set – and the A Big Thank You is pretty perfect!  Change the color of the sentiment/mat to make it more or less Christmas-y.  Or Wedding-y.  Or birthday-y!!  I hope you like!

See?  Toldja – you NEED this Christmas Countdown set in your arsenal!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Karen’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Jaimie’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Countdown Project Kit with Video!

Mornin’, y’all!  I hope you had a great World Card Making Day WEEKEND!  I know we did!

On Saturday, we spent much of the day on Facebook – with demonstrations and giveaways and a rockin’ good time!  Speaking of giveaways – Amy has sent an e-mail to all the folks who won one of our prizes, so…if that is YOU…CONGRATS!  And – be sure to let Amy know your mailing address so we can get them sent to you, okay?

I did two videos on Saturday.  The evening video featured the new Christmastime is Here Suite (coming on 1 Nov) – and you can see that video and all the card cuts right here!

In the other video, I shared the awesome Christmas Countdown Project Kit!  I figured I’d give you a little more of the deets – and post that video here for y’all today!

I love this project kit, y’all!  Look how fun it turned out! 🙂

As I said in the video, I got it out of sheer curiosity – HOW would it come?!?  Would we have to put all the boxes together?!

The answer is a resounding…NO!

The box is fully assembled – and comes in a sturdy box that would be great for wrapping and gifting!  I am planning to put age-appropriate gifts into my finished kit and send it off as an early Christmas present! 🙂

Now – being that this is a Project Kit (not an All-Inclusive kit) – you’ll need to provide some supplies (Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals) – and the Christmas Countdown stamp set (and ink if you decide to stamp the box fronts!).

In the video, I tell you that you don’t NEED the stamp set – you could, in fact, complete the entire kit with the stickers and embellishments included in the kit.

BUT – the stamp set DOES give you more options for decorating the boxes.

Also – it’s a really cool stamp set (I’m bringing you some great little thank you notecards tomorrow – and it plays a prominent role!).  So… you don’t NEED it for the kit…but you NEED it cuz it’s great! 😉

Don’t need a Christmas Countdown calendar?

Well – decorate it for Halloween.  Or countdown to a birthday.

Or….RETIREMENT!! Hint: I’d put the 25 at the top for this one – with the 1 at the end.  Or…even the GOLD STAR!!

You could also use it to create an Embellishment Cubby!  Check out my video – I’ll show you a picture of the one Stampin’ Up! did!

I hope you’ll pick this one up, y’all – I think I’m going to get another one…or two!  They’re so much fun and just chock-a-block full of possibilities!

I hope you like!

Well – we’re finally seeing the cool-at-the-end of the summer!

I hope.

But – just a couple of days ago – not so much!  Hot as the dickens.

Wayne and Finn and I walked down to give the girls some water in the second trough (they’ve got one in pretty much every pasture!) and my water babies took the chance to play in the water!

I took a video.

Well – I put my phone on video and then…THOUGHT I pushed the button.  But I was late.

Stampin’ Up! Christmastime is Here Sneak Peek Double-Easel

Good morning!  Happy Post-World-Card-Making Day!!  If you were able to join us yesterday for our Inkin’ Krew World Card Making Day EVENT (yes – I meant to shout – cuz it was awesome!!) – I hope you had a most wonderful time.  And maybe learned a little and got some new ideas, tips and techniques!

And…just had some fun!

So – I did two videos yesterday – the first brought you the Christmas Countdown Project Kit.  I’ll showcase that one again next week!  My second video was our “normal” Saturday night video!  If you’d like to see the YouTube replay – here ’tis!

For any of you who’ve been following me for any time, you know that a Double-Easel Fold is one of my very favorites!!  I love how much “wow” factor there is – with so little extra effort!  The new Christmas Rose stamp set – and bundled Rose Dies, plus the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP (all available on 1 November with the arrival of the Christmastime is Here Suite) – is a perfect candidate for this fold.  Take a look-see:

Why two pictures?  Well…the card on the left is the sample card and the card on the right is on the one I demo’d last night. Same exact fold – same stamp and die set, and the same DSP (turned over!).

I started with the “mat” (Poppy Parade or Mossy Meadow) – which is 4″ x 10 1/4″ –  scored/folded at 5 1/2” and then scored/folded in the opposite direction at 7 3/4” to create the double easel. The 5 1/2” fold is a “valley” and the 7 3/4” fold is a “mountain”.

I cut the two pieces of the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP and used Liquid Glue to adhere the larger piece to the top panel and the smaller piece to the middle panel.

On a small piece of Whisper White, I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Rose stamp set – in Poppy Parade or Cherry Cobbler.  I added a fluer-de-loo cut from Mossy Meadow using the die from the bundled Rose Dies.

Then I adhered the panel to the front small easel panel.

The roses on each card are the same exact image – in two different ways!  For the sample card – I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large image (this is a Cling Stamp) from Christmas Rose in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I colored it with the fill-in stamps in the set (these are photopolymer!).  I used Poppy Parade for the roses, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive for the leaves and boughs, and Cherry Cobbler and Blushing Bride for for the berries.  I stamped the pine cones in Early Espresso and then touched them with Golden Glitz Delicata Ink using a Blender Pen (I show how to do this on the video!).  Then I cut it out with the large die in the Rose Dies set.

The flower for the second card is simply cut from the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP using that same large die!  Wowza – how easy is that?!?  🙂

I used Liquid Glue on the bottom portion of each cut to adhere it to the bottom panel of the double-easel.  Then I finished them off with some new Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (coming 1 Nov in the Christmastime is Here Suite).

Finally – I adhered the entire easel panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from the Christmas Rose stamp set – in Poppy Parade or Cherry Cobbler.  On the first card, I added the rose image – stamping it as I had done for the front.  For my second card, I cut out another of the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP roses and adhered it to the corner.  Then I trimmed it off with my new Paper Trimmer.  And I saved the pieces!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to my mat (Poppy Parade or Mossy Meadow) and then into my card base (the sample card has a Mossy Meadow card base and the video card has a Basic Black card base) and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another rose on the front – either stamped or….I adhered one of the leftover pieces of the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP rose that I’d saved! – on the front…

…and I added some more of the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila (x2!)!  I LOVE this new Christmastime is Here Suite – the versatility is huge!  I am a serious fan of dies that cut out gorgeous images like these Rose Dies cut from the Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP, aren’t you?  And the Christmas Rose stamp set – oh.  My.  Goodness!!  The combination of Cling and Photopolymer media is genius – we get the best of both worlds!!  I hope you like and are marking your calendars and counting down to 1 Nov!

Oh – you want it now?  Well…give me a shout!  Folks who sign up to join our SU! team can select this Suite for their Starter Kit!!  AND you can get the new Trimmer right now, too!  Drop me a line!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn is an…interesting…eater!

He ignores his bowl for hours – usually deciding to eat his breakfast when Wayne and I sit down to have lunch.  Sometimes he doesn’t eat breakfast until almost dinner time!

Which is actually more evidence that the cat food is the source of his…slightly pudgy waist-line…

I digress.

What’s so cute to me is that, when he does settle in to eat, he does it with total concentration and focus.  He starts eating and doesn’t look up until it’s ALL gone – and he’s licked all around the bowl.

And then – especially if we’ve already finished and the food plates are put up (translation: nothing for the dog to lick!), he settles by the back door.  To wait for us to finish – like…family meal time!

Darned handsome fella, isn’t he?  Even with a little…dirt on his ruff.

Hey – he’s a FARM dog.  And a BOY!  Hello?!?
