Stamps-N-Lingers… Finn is Turning SIX Today!

Good Friday the 17th of June, y’all!!  Hope you’re ready for the weekend and have some fun plans!  Ours include…driving! 🙄🙄🙄🙄

BUT.  Today is Finn’s Sixth Birthday -so in celebration…this post is one GINORMOUS Finn Fan Fix! 🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂 (seven cakes – see?).  WARNING:  if you don’t want to see A LOT of pics of Finn….well…then…this is NOT the post for you! 😂😂😂😂

I spent a little time the other day going down a photographic memory lane trying to pick pictures that would do his wonderfulness justice.  You may or may not be surprised to learn that I have a TON (digitally speaking!) of pictures of this fur bucket.  I “pared” them down.  To 230.  Which is WAAY too many.  So then I started sort of sorting them. And STILL had too many – but…I tried to pick just a few for you!  Okay.  I admit – it’s STILL too many!! 🙂

I have pics of him as a baby (we got him when he was 4 months old…. he was so stinkin’ cute!

I found pictures of him playing in and around water…  unless it’s a “bath” – he’s a water lover!

Baths are NOT a fave…

Speaking of – he’s got his first-ever groomer appointment in a month! I haven’t told him yet….😳😳😳

I found a TON of toy pictures – he’s got a LOT of them!

And I found…feet!

And lips! Lots and lots of lips!

And pics of him with his nose stuck in stuff – either snooping or trying to lick the last of something!

And – of course, there were (and still ARE!) tons of pics of him with his friends!

We all know he’s a Farm Boy…and “helps” a lot!

Of course – there are pics of him sleeping.  It’s one of his fave things!!

 

There were pictures that didn’t really fit a “spot” – but…I just couldn’t leave them out!!

And – last, but for sure not least….pics of Finn with….FOOD!

And…that is ALL the pictures I have of Finn.

Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!

Oh – forgot his Cujo picture.  Brace yourself!

Looks pretty fierce, doesn’t he?!? That’s what his Aussie Smile looks like when you get SUPER lucky with the camera shot!! 😂😂

I hope you’ve enjoyed watching him get to the ripe old age of 49 (that’s in people years!) – thru the good and the bad…

…and that we’ll all get more years of his goofy self!

See you tomorrow!

Stamps-N-Lingers Special Bundles Available For Ordering!

You guys should have received your new Jul – Dec 2022 Mini catalogs in the mail by now – if you haven’t (and think you SHOULD have!) give me shout!  Hopefully you’ve had a chance to take a gander thru it (previously known as the Holiday catalog – my FAVE!! – this one is pretty amazing, isn’t it??).  If you’ve gone thru it a time (or twelve!) …then I know you have a long list of things you really need to have!

So – to help you gather up those goodies and maybe save a little green, I’ve gathered up some products from the new Suites (and beyond!) that coordinate with each other and will get you well on the way to making great cards and projects!  When you order them, you’ll save around 10-15% off ordering everything yourself!  And every Special Bundle includes a FREE GIFT! 🙂

AND – since it’ll be Sale-A-Bration EVERY bundle will get a couple of Sale-A-Bration Rewards.  The more bundles you order – the more rewards you’ll earn.  Heck – choose a couple three – and get the retail cost over $300 (not YOUR cost – the RETAIL cost!) – and you’ll receive the gorgeous DistINKtive Perfect Pomegranate stamp set FREE!  I think you can come up with some wonderful projects using it, don’t you?? 🙂

PLEASE NOTE: This offer is available to anyone – but I can only ship to addresses in the United States or Military APO addresses.  Thanks for your understanding!

** SHIPPING/SUPPLY CHAIN NOTICE:  Since we’re all STILL being affected by shipping and supply chain issues, some of these products may NOT be available when I place the orders.  We’re not able to do backorders now, so the way forward will be for me to refund you the portion of the bundle that I can’t order for you.  That way, the REST of your goodies will be on the way for you to play with lickety-split!  Of course, if that happens, that will have a domino effect on the number of Sale-A-Bration items I’ll be able to select for you.  It’s the ole butterfly effect!  🤔

These bundles will only be available from me at these great discounts until 8 July 2022 – so…don’t hesitate!

IMPORTANT ORDERING NOTE!!  At the bottom of the form is a spot for you to put your choices for your Sale-A-Bration freebies.  Please prioritize your favorites from first thru sixth choice (and select “Unspecified Choice” for the remainder, okay?)  I’ll order them when I place your order – and will get as many of them for you as I can!  Winner-Winner- BETTER than a chicken dinner!!  If you’ve got questions on how to fill out the form – give me a holler!

This is a LIMITED TIME OFFER – it ends on 8 July 2022!  So….don’t wait too long!

One more note – once you hit “Submit” – it takes a hot second (or twelve!) for the system to do it’s thing.  Be patient – it’ll get there. Once it has – it says “Message Sent – Go Back”.   You can click “Go Back” and that will return you to the Blog Post! 🙂



So – get bundling!  And saving!!
