Stampin’ Up! You’re Inspiring Video Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday, folks!  Hope this post finds y’all well and having a good weekend!

As is – mostly! – the norm, I’m sharing just a little glimpse at the card we’ll make this evening.  I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 8pm eastern (that’s our normal time).  The card uses the wonderful You’re Inspiring stamp set – and it pays homage to my brave little daffodils poking their heads up in the hopes that winter is over!  Take a sneaky-peek:

We’re going to do some fun embossing in Copper – so I hope you can join me!  Here’s a link!  

Now that the business is over – thought I’d share a cute little picture.

Remember this card?  

You can click the picture if you want to see how I made it.

Anyway – my friend sent me a picture.

That’s Miss Scarlett – wearing the little summery dress I sent and holding her card!  By all accounts she loved it!  

Is she a sweetie-pie or what?!? 🙂

See you tonight!

Finn Fan Fix

On Saturday morning, on our way out the door to put the horses out and clean up the barn, I put Finny’s flea-and-tick medicine on him.

Like we do once a month.

It’s the south.  It’s what we do.

Sometime later – after we’d got everyone out, had a little game of tug, done some obedience – I was cleaning stalls.  Sort of lost track of him.

No big – he often wanders around the barn, checking for squirrels, tasty hoof tidbits, bugs that need chasing.

Dog stuff.

When I stepped out of the hay stall, the entire barn aisle was sprinkled with water.

Huh?  Not a cloud in the sky – clear and a million.

I could not figure out where the water had come from.

And then…I saw him…

Apparently swim season is upon us!

Hopefully the flea-and-tick med is as waterproof as it claims! 😉

    Swim season? Not so much. Lovely sunshine though.

  5. Adorable girl in adorable dress, loving her adorable card. Bet she loves you too! Reminds me of my 4 yr. old g granddaughter who is VERY much a girly girl.
    Finn knows how to have fun, and every kid loves to play in the water. He is no exception. ‘See’ you tonight. Looks inspiring. 🙂

  7. Kathy L

    Little Scarlett is adorable in her beautiful dress! Of course she would love her card also, being a pink sort of person. And Finn looks like he’s ready for some company in water play. Com’ on, Mom!

    • She’s a real sweetie!! And no – mom will never ever swim in the pond. Ever! If I can’t see the bottom – or it’s not the ocean – Mom’s not getting in!! Thanks so much, Kathy! 🙂

  8. Susan K

    Oooh, copper embossing. Can’t wait to see the video. missed it live…at Mama’s celebrating her birthday with family. Love the beautiful dress and princess wearing it. She is a cutie for sure! Finn looks happy. He’ll be sad when it is freezing again soon!
