Good morning and welcome to Weekend-Eve! Know what three weeks from TODAY is??
Did you guess….Christmas Eve?? See the connection? “WEEKEND-eve”….”CHRISTMAS-eve”?? 😉
You’re welcome for the update!
Now. Since we’re getting close to The Big Day – I have a totally NON-Christmas card for you! This one is a CASE of a really pretty card in the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. It uses the Eden Garden Bundle (available right now!) and the Heart & Home DSP (coming on 4 Jan!). Take a look-see:
And I made a few mods to the sample as a result of the CASE The Designer challenge at the Global Design Project!
I started with a piece of the coming-soon Heart & Home DSP – it started as about 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, then I tore all four edges down. It ended up at about 3 3/4″ x 5″.
Using a Sponge Dauber, I brushed the torn edges with Misty Moonlight ink.
Using two leaves images from the Eden’s Garden stamp set, I stamped both images around the edge of the panel in stamped-off-once Soft Succulent.
Then I adhered the panel directly to the front of a Thick Basic White cardbase.
I used the large rectangle die in the Eden Dies – available right now, bundled with the Eden’s Garden stamp set for a 10% savings! – to cut a Basic White cardstock frame. I adhered the frame to the card front with Liquid Glue.
Using the smaller rectangle die from the set, I cut two frames – one from Highland Heather and one from Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum. I used Paper Snips to cut both of them into a bunch of smaller “branches”.
I also cut two of the single leaves from Misty Moonlight and two from Vellum cardstock.
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered all the branches/leaves to the card front.
Then I tied a small, simple bow from the Misty Moonlight/Silver twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
On a strip of Misty Moonlight, I stamped the Eden’s Garden sentiment in Versamark Ink – then I sprinkled it with white Embossing powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.
I snipped a banner end and popped it over the leaves and bow with double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used Liquid Glue to add some leftover little bits of the Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum leaves, tucked in here and there around the larger frame.
I added some new Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels (coming on 4 Jan 2022!) – one on the sentiment and a couple more around the collage – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I used the same leaves images from Eden’s Garden to stamp in the corner of a Basic White panel in stamped-off-once Soft Succulent.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and into the Thick Basic White card base, and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Eden’s Garden leaves – in FULL strength Soft Succulent – on the front…
…and more of the Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I loved this card when I saw it in the catalog – and I love the way it turned out here! The Eden’s Garden bundle is truly lovely – with great sentiments and images. And…I can’t wait to see what you guys make when you’re able to pick up the Heart & Home DSP on 4 Jan – cuz…it’s gorgeous!
I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
The other day was Finn’s annual wellness exam.
He LOVES his vet – pulls ME into the building (which is EXACTLY opposite what I’m used to from dogs!).
Waiting is hard, though, once you’re in the exam room.
Everyone knows it.
I read my book on my phone.
He had a bit of a rest.
I answered some e-mails.
He checked to see if they have peppermint wrappers at the vet.
FINALLY – the vet arrived and…in addition to a few shots (which don’t hurt anyway but are made even BETTER by the nice lady feeding him yummy cookies thru the whole thing! 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️) his doctor mentioned that he might be a little…uhm…well…. undertall?? A little better…padded?….than he should be? 🙁
I feel ya, kid. No one wants to hear that.
He came home and….crashed.
Yup – the spectre of a diet is for sure exhausting to contemplate! 🤨🤨🤨
