Good morning! Welcome back to your work-week, y’all! Well – and mine, too, of course!
Hey! Guess what tomorrow is? Yep – it’s the day SU! releases the new Sale-A-Bration goodies! Two stamp sets and a pack of too-cool Glimmer Paper! Whoo-hoo!
And, as one last little teaser, I used some of the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper as a little accent for my birthday card – the basis for which is the Happy Celebrations stamp set. Take a look-see:
I played along with two challenges on this one. The first one is from The Paper Players…
And my colors came from the Fab Friday color challenge.
I started with a plain piece of Whisper White card stock. In the center, using the first step in the “Happy” image, I stamped it in Peekaboo Peach. Then I stamped the second image in Calypso Coral. I also stamped the final – outline – image in Calypso Coral.
To add just a little bling – but still keep it Clean-and-Simple for the challenge, I cut several stars from the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper, using the die in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. With some Liquid Glue, I adhered them over the confetti images in the corner. Then I SNAILd the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and the card front was done!
On the inside, I simply repeated the Balloon Adventures confetti in Peekaboo Peach and added a few more Glimmery Bermuda Bay stars.
I SNAILd the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to a Peekaboo Peach mat and into my Rich Razzleberry card base. On the front, I SNAILd a Peekaboo Peach mat directly to the front of the card base and popped my card front over that with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Balloon Adventures confetti on the front…

The other day, I got a comment – a very nice one! – that asked how, with all I have to do, I can keep making a new card every day! The answer? I spend a lot of time way behind!! 🙂
This weekend is a prime example. It was the weekend of errands. Costco. Grocery store. Horse Feed. Doens’t sound like a lot – but Costco by itself takes a full day. It’s an Atlanta thing!
And let’s not forget the Finn-constitutional in the morning…
And on Sunday, we went to Tractor Supply to get horse feed – and we got his first bag of Adult Dog Food! Yep – on 1 May, we’ll start mixing the big boy food in with the puppy food! Can you even believe he’s almost a year old!? 🙂
Finn had a good time. His obedience was a little slack – it was really busy there, lots of distractions. But he got some pettings and lots of people admired his handsome self (one lady did think he was a Collie, though!). And he got to ride in the new truck!
I don’t think he was ready to be done with the adventure, do you?
A good weekend.
But – I’m behind again…go figure! 🙂
