Stampin’ Up! Happy Tails Sympathy on Wonderful Florals

Happy Happy Hawmmmp Day!  And – it just occurred to me – now don’t be scared – there’s a little less than 10 months till Christmas!

Whaaaa???

More pressing and germain to this blog – we’re 2/3 of the way thru Sale-A-Bration, can you even believe it??  Just one more month to fill your tool chest with free goodies!

My card for today is one that I hate having to make – it’s to express my condolences to a friend for the loss off their pet. 🙁  But – I hope it’ll bring a smile – at least for a minute.  I used the new Happy Tails stamp set and bundled Dog Builder Punch – plus a Wonderful Floral Framelits die cut.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Part of My Painted Season Story

Happy Tuesday, guys!  Hope your week is progressing nicely!  We’re having a day or two of really gorgeous weather – the rain is done for a minute and we’re hitting the 60’s.  The weather is cray cray this year!

For today, I made a cheerful little card with a couple of old faves and a few new winners!  Painted Seasons – the stamp set AND the designer paper – plays a strong supporting role to the Part of My Story sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Beach Happy Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Half-past-the-weekend.

That’s a new time I just made up.  What do you think?

I’ve got the Oscars all set to record tonight – cuz I’m planning on spending a little time with y’all!  I’ll be live on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 8pm Eastern.  And, we’re going to make a fun fold card that…not gonna lie…I might have gotten a little carried away with.  But I was just having too much fun, so I just kept stamping!  I was playing with the new Beach Happy set for the first time.  Here’s a sneaky peek:

Stampin’ Up! Country Flowing Fountain

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Well – last night, at the end of a long and turbulent week, Wayne and I went to dinner with our friends in what has become a routine for us.  Not all routines are something to be eagerly anticipated – but this one…definitely is.  It’s a nice thing to look forward to each weekend!

Also – did you know that yesterday was – apparently – National Margarita Day?  I didn’t until my friend told me – which helped make the dinner decision easier.  Mexican it was.

But – they weren’t doing ANYthing special for National Margarita Day.

Mexican.  Food.  Restaurant.  National Margarita Day.  Hola?!?

Pero….Nada.

Huh.

Not saying this kept me from having the drink-of-the-day.  Cuz I totally did!

Now – my ramblings about my dinner aside, we’ve also got a card – which is, in fact, why you’re here, right? 😉

It’s a clean-and-simple little number, that I made with a sentiment from the Flowing Fountain stamp set with an assist from the new Country Floral Dynamic TIEF and some beautiful Painted Seasons DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Double-Time Painted Pinecone Season

Good Friday morning, y’all!  Hope your week has gone well.

If nothing else, you can at least say it’s gone!

And I’m pretty glad of it, too, cuz mine has been topsy-turvy.  My trip has moved (so we’ll be able to meet on Sunday – yeah!).  The downside is that it overlaps OnStage AND – as I realized yesterday! – my young friend’s graduation from Vet School.  I’m trying to figure out how to do it all, because missing EITHER just isn’t going to fly for me – so…keep your fingers crossed!

For today I made a fun little card using a technique and a stamp set that I really love!  It’s the Double-Time technique and the Painted Seasons stamp set (free during Sale-a-Bration!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Be Mine & We’ll Be So Hoppy Together!

One of my favorite things about where I live is the sheer volume of the frog song we get to hear every night.  Folks – they do NOT say ribbit!!  They speak about a 100 different frog languages and they let loose with joyful abandon every night.  I so look forward to the time of year we can sleep with the windows open so I can listen to them as I fall asleep.

Please do not take this to mean that I have, have had or will ever have a pet frog…Want to pick up and pet a frog…Want to touch a frog in any way.  I just like having them around so I can enjoy their musical talents! 😉

One of the most fun stamp sets in the first Sale-A-Bration release is, without a doubt, the So Hoppy Together set.

Those little frogs – who doesn’t love them!?

Well, I used that set – with the new Hop Around Framelits (which you’re going to be able to get on 1 March!) – and a little bit of Be Mine Stitched Framelits and…well.  Take a look-see:
