The Mailbox Has Been Filled with Lovely Cards!

Well – happy Saturday!  Are y’all out and about taking socially-distanced-advantage of the after-Christmas sales?  We are…not!  We hunker down on the day after Christmas in non-COVID years so…no incentive to brave the chaos this year!

I’ll be live this evening at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page with a card to share.  Do I know right now what that card is?  Nope – I confess, I spent yesterday cooking our Christmas Prime Rib and enjoying the day!  But…I hope you’ll join me anyway – even without a sneak peek!  It’ll be like a….Mystery Movie! 😉

So…before I go…I wanted to share what’s been coming each day!  I’ve gotten a bunch of gorgeous cards from team members and customers – all of whom are now my friends – thanks to Stampin’ Up!  I’ve loved opening each and every card – thank you all so much!

Hoping you had a great Christmas and a less-than-chaotic day-after Christmas!

And…hope to see you tonight – at 7pm eastern – right here.

For…whatever I create today!  🙂






Use this host code when you order $50 or greater and receive a free gift (AND the Monthly Card Tutorial) from me!  If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift.  The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 in any active Catalog!  That includes some of the Host Exclusive stamp sets!  See my Customer Rewards page for full details. You’ll also be getting a link to my ZOOM The Craftroom (an exclusive online event for my customers) and the monthly Online Tutorial.   The December Tutorial features the Arrange A Wreath Bundle!

Online Host Club Opening!

Hey, y’all – I’ve got an unexpected opening in my Host Club that starts in January!  That means that you’ve got a chance to jump in  – just in time for the kick-off of the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog AND Sale-A-Bration!  There are some great benefits to being in a Host Club!

  • DOUBLE Peppermint points on all your club orders – which means you hit that magic 16 Peppermints even faster – and score your $40 rewards gift!
  • TWICE during the 6 month club YOU will be the host – which means you score Stampin’ Rewards – at least $15 (and usually more!).  But – you don’t have to do any work!  All the benefit – none of the work.  Yes, please! 🙂
  • You’ll get a free stamp set from me – of your choice up to $25 – twice during the club as my thank you for playing!

There are other benefits, too – so…head over to my Online Host Club 2021 page to see how it all works.  Then give me a holler right quick – I’ve only got ONE spot open!

Stamps-N-Lingers Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog Shares Are Open

My Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog Shares are now open!

A catalog share gives you a chance to try a sample of all the new products in the catalog – and then you can see what you love and go back and purchase full packs of those goodies!

You’ll get to try a little bit of the beautiful new Designer Series Papers, specialty papers, cards & envelopes, and treat boxes, plus fun embellishments with one of my Catalog Shares! I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 5 Jan 21 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast!  Then I’ll get it all cut up, packaged and out the door quick as I can – as early in the week of the 11th as I can manage!

I’ve got a few options for you to pick from:  a New Designer Series Paper Share, a New Embellishments Share, and an I Want It All Share (this one gets a free extra bonus!!).  And there are even DOUBLE shares, too!

Finn Fan Fix 

Thought you might like to see the behind-the-scenes of the photo shoot that produced yesterday’s Christmas Photo.

I placed Finn on a sit right in front of the tree.

Then I sat on the floor about 6 feet in front of him.

Obedience task #1 – do NOT leave the sit-stay to climb in Mom’s lap.

A+ 🙂

Next – with NO peppermint to be seen (cuz I totally didn’t even have any!), I asked for a “sit pretty”.

A+ again!  A little sober, though, for Christmas.

Deciding to press my luck – I asked for Down.



Seriously – is ANYONE from the AKC watching this feat of distance obedience?  There should be a certificate somewhere, right??

So….on a roll – I signaled him to Sit Pretty.

There it is!  The money shot!!

Yes – I know.  Cutest.  Smartest.  Smilin’-est.  He’s the trifecta!

    LOVE that dog! Thanks for sharing him with us.

  2. So many pretty cards! It’s always fun to pick up the mail during December. 🙂 Sweet photos of Finn…he’s definitely the most smartest and most bestest trained fluffy puppy ever! 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      Sure is! Lots of pretty! Thanks so much, Amy – I sorta think he is! 😉

    Thanks for showing my Christmas card and calendar pages on your national blog…I feel like a celebrity. And the Finnster is the cutest dog ever. Happy New Year (and hopefully a lot better than 2020) dear friend.

    Happy Boxing Day – where did you get that picture of the winged horse? I would love that for my desktop picture. Have a Great day – Donna

    • stampsnlingers

      Hey Donna – it was a stock picture on PicMonkey! Came up when I searched “Christmas mystery”! 🙂 Thank yo! 🙂

    A belated Merry Christmas Mary!
    Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year! Hoping this vaccine works and we can get back to normal soon.
    Finn is quite photogenic. A future in advertising perhaps? 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      I’m pretty sure we’d be rich – just need him to be “discovered”! LOL! Thank you so much, Gerri – hope the same for you! 🙂
