Happy Saturday, y’all! Wow. Each day feels like it takes forever to get thru – but then I look up and there’s only two weeks to go! Yikes! The more important day is next Tuesday. On that day, we end the “hard” grind – and transition to cruise control. No more 4am alarm clocks for me. Can’t tell you how happy I’m going to be about that. And – I think I’ll probably even get the weekend off!
So – one of the pretty new stamp sets in the 2018 Holiday Catalog is called Joy & Noel. It’s a beautiful, two-stamp set, similar to the Floral Statements set in the Annual Catalog. I used that set, plus the Timeless Tidings set, for my card today. Oh – and…did I mention we’ve got new colors of Stampin’ Blends coming? How does Shaded Spruce, Real Red, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Basic Black and Mango Melody strike your fancy?! Take a look-see:

I want to thank everyone who entered my Paper Pumpkin Blog Candy giveaway – there’s definitely a lot of love for Stampin’ Up!’s wonderful Designer Series Paper, that’s evident! 🙂
If you remember – I have two Paper Pumpkin Kits to give away. The first number pulled will receive a Broadway Star kit from June!
Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge, and I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here!
I pulled out a favorite from the Annual Catalog – the Abstract Impressions stamp set and bundled Springtime Impressions Thinlits, and then added a few goodies from the 2018 Holiday Catalog. Take a look-see:
Happy happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!! About this time next week we’ll be done with the “hard” part of the test and will be in cruise control mode to the end! We’ll be back to “regular” hours and weekends completely off! And – I’ll be only about a week and a half from heading home! Whoo-hooo! 🙂

Okay – so. While we were on the cruise, we got a great sneak peek at a few of the products in the new 2018 Holiday Catalog. One of the things they showed us is the Timeless Tidings Project Kit. Every demo in the room oooh’d or ahhh’d when this one came up. Oh my – it is SO beautiful! Take a look-see:
I know it’s hard to believe – but…we’re only a few weeks away from the debut of the 2018 Holiday Catalog! Whoo-hooo! Those of you who are my customers should start to see your catalogs arriving around the middle of the month.
Good Monday! So…this is the next-to-last 12-hour Monday for me. After the next one, we should go back to “regular” (to include actually taking the weekend off – gasp!) so that will be a relief. I’m not as wired for this kind of schedule as I used to be. 12 hour day? Got it. Five in a row? Cool – can do it in my sleep. FIFTEEEN days in a row? Not so easy any more.
But – I can do anything for 2 more weeks, so…this too shall pass. I’ll be glad, though, to get back to having a little time and a lot more creative energy to make cards. I have a lot of “wanna” when I get to the hotel at night, but…not a lotta “DO”!
Fortunately, one of the goodies that arrived in my pre-order was a Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack. I used a few goodies from that, along with a large Poppy Parade Santa’s Workshop Card and Envelope from the pack we got as a free give-away on the Cruise. And not one ink pad was opened in the making of this card! Take a look-see:
Mornin’, y’all! Weekend is almost over, huh?
So – bad news first…I won’t be able to do a FB live tonight – sorry! I don’t get done at work until late and it just won’t work. Sadly, that’s probably true for next Sunday, too – so…it’s very likely going to be the 19th before we can get together again. 🙁
In the meantime, I’m planning to have cards for you most days – and will bring you some sneak peeks of the new catalog! I think you’re going to love it!
For today, I went back to the Dashing Deer stamp set and added a little bit of Corrugated Dynamic TIEF texture and some more of the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
Good Saturday to you! Hope you’re having a fine weekend.
So – when I was home for 5 hours last weekend, I snagged my July Paper Pumpkin box – aptly name Picnic Paradise! – and brought it back with me!
It. Is. So. Cute! Take a look-see:
Mornin’, peeps! Happy Friday! That’s sort of a useless word for me today – we’re working straight thru till the 13th, so….bleh! But – I very much hope that YOU are not working this weekend and have, instead, some fun plans!
Before we get going – want to remind you that Bonus Days are going on right now! This is a great promotion from Stampin’ UP! When you make purchases in August – you’ll earn certificates for $5 off for each $50 that you spend (before shipping and tax!). So…spend $50 – get a $5 coupon. Spend $100 – get two. And so one. Then, in September, you can redeem these coupons for savings! Spend it to save it!
That’s an actual thing!
Scroll down for more details, okay?
Now. For today, I’m bringing you another sneak peek from the 2018 Holiday Catalog – all of which will be available to customers on 5 Sept. This one uses the Dashing Deer bundle with the Dashing Deer stamp set and Detailed Deer Thinlits. And there’s a few other new goodies thrown in, too. Take a look-see:
Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge, and I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here!
Since the new Blended Seasons stamp set and bundled Stitched Season Framelits are available right now (and only while supplies last!), I decided to showcase them. And I’m giving you a little peek at a new Designer Series Paper – the Country Lane DSP from the Holiday Catalog. Take a look-see:
