Morning, y’all! It’s Tuesday!
Arntcha glad I show up every morning to keep you on track with the days of the week?
It’s National Math Storytelling Day. Apparently Math Storytelling is a thing.
Also…did you know that September is Velociraptor Awareness Month?
Yes – it’s true. You still have time to send a handmade card to your favorite neighborhood velociraptor. I know he or she will appreciate it. Probably more than if you try to tell him or her a math story…
Perhaps the card will be a Christmas card – and you might want to make this one. It uses the Host-Exclusive Hung With Care stamp set. And some wonderful Festive Farmhouse DSP plaid paper. Take a look-see:
Being that it’s a Christmas card, I played along with the TGIF Challenge this week!
I started with some of that pretty paper and matted it on Basic Gray card stock for the card front!
Then, on a smaller panel of Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the fun sentiment and three “hangers” from the Hung With Care stamp set, in Cherry Cobbler ink.
I embossed the panel in the new Tufted Dynamic TIEF and matted it on Basic Gray before adhering it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I stamped three stockings from the set on another piece of Very Vanilla. I recruited my Stamparatus and, using the marker-to-rubber technique, I colored them with my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers. Then I fussy cut them.
I popped each fussy-cut stocking onto the card front with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To finish off, I tied three little bows from Linen Thread and adhered them on each stocking with a dab of Liquid Glue!
On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Hung With Care in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla card stock. Another stocking in the corner was all it needed to be done!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Gray mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another stocking on the front…
…and I added some more of the Festive Farmhouse DSP to the flap.
Et Voila! Easy peasy, nice and…cozy? Well – the rhyme sort of fails me, but…the Hung With Care stamp set won’t fail you, I promise! But to get it. you’ll need to get you some Stampin’ Rewards – cuz that’s the only “currency” that’ll work for a Host-Exclusive set! Give me a holler and we’ll get you hooked up!

Finn Fan Fix
Each morning, after we’ve fed and let the horses eat their breakfast and (since we often slow-roll heading back out) take a little after-breakfast nap (it IS important to let your food digest, right?) – we sweep the aisle.
Cuz we’re neat freaks.
Anywho – Finn does try to help.
We sweep everything to one end of the aisle into a little pile so we can pick it up and put it in the spreader.
Hmm. Standing IN the pile…
Does that make any sort of sense – I mean…if “helping” is the plan?
Appears he’s not “helping” at all.
Nope. He’s mining horse hoof parings.
