Mornin’, y’all! Here we are – one week post “incident”! Can you believe it?
Now that you’ve scrolled back up from your check on Finn – if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate it very much! If not, but would like to see how to make this easy thank you card, here’s the replay on YouTube!
Coming on 1 May is the early release to customers of the wonderful Share What You Love suite of goodies from the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog! Stampin’ Up! is giving everyone an extra whole month to play with this gorgeous bundle! So – in case you’re not already excited enough, I made a pretty, vintage-inspired card with the Do What You Love stamp set and more of the lovely Share What You Love Specialty DSP! Take a look-see:
This one is really easy to make – so…here we go!
I started with a piece of the new Share What You Love DSP and matted in on Mint Macaron card stock – yes, indeed! Mint Macaron will be coming back in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!
Using a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive, I added a length of the Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim, wrapping it around and securing it in the back. Around that, I wrapped some Mint Macaron twine from the Nature’s Twine pack (available 1 June).
I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock to 3″ square – then tore it down a little bit to vintage-ize it – and popped it at an angle over the twine with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The Do What You Love sentiment is stamped in Rich Razzleberry onto a 3″ square piece of Crumb Cake and I tore its edges, too. I added a Pear Pizzazz leaf from Do What You Love in two corners. With a wedge of a Stampin’ Sponge, I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. Then I added it over the Basic Black square with Liquid Glue.
I fussy cut a few flowers from the Share What You Love Specialty DSP – and edged them with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. The two smaller flowers are adhered with Liquid Glue – then I popped the full flower on with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. That flower got a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl (available 1 May) in the center.
A Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim bow finished off the card front.
On the inside, I added some flowers from Do What You Love in Crumb Cake on a Whisper White panel. I added stamped-off-once Rich Razzleberry wash images and then lightly sponged the edges of the panel with my almost-dry Crumb Cake sponge. Finally, I added the second Do What You Love sentiment in Rich Razzleberry.
I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and then into my Mint Macaron card base (available 1 May with the Early Release), popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Do What You Love flowers on the front…
…and a bit more Share What You Love Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Easy card – and so elegant, thanks to the so wondrous Share What You Love Specialty DSP and the wonderful sentiments and images in the Do What You Love stamp set. I’m so excited for y’all to be able to grab these goodies on 1 May – that’s in just 8 days! Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
Well – Sunday was a day of new things.
Or…new old things? Old new… I don’t know! I saw some “old” Finn that made me happy and I saw some “new” Finn that I sorta hope goes by the wayside as the recovery continues.
He…sort of licked the dirty dishes in the dishwasher. Only sort of – but…it’s a start! “Old” Finn.
He dropped the chewable pills and gave me the look. You know – the “are you kidding me?? Put those in some chicken and rice and we’ll talk” look. “Old” Finn – but there’d been a day or two where “New” Finn just ate them. Sorta liked that one!
We rode on the golf cart. “Old” Finn!
He’s become quite vocal – at least more so today than yesterday. “Old” Finn was very quiet except for when something needed to be barked at – hoping that one comes back right quick! “New” Finn is barking like a goof when he hears the frogs outside or the cat in the litter box. 😉
On the other hand, he’s still got “stealth” mode down pat! I’ll think he’s in the bedroom and then…he’s right behind me. Which is a little teensy bit dangerous! 🙂
And – he watched some Dog TV!
So – another day down. A little less sleeping – all very normal for “Old” Finn – but no restless pacing. Which is excellent! Glad that one seems to be behind us.
We’ll see what Monday brings, yes?
Thank you again for all the love and prayers – they mean more than you know!
