Or – you know…something like that!
This is my second post today – if you’re looking for the project I shared this morning – here’s the link to it!
Today is the end of October – which means that the Starter Kit Plus joining special has – officially – come to its last day!
Starter Kit PLUS Joining Special
Good morning! Happy Monday – and Happy Halloween!! Ready or not…here comes the week. And NOVEMBER! AND – the time change (yuk!). All coming up this week.
AND – the end of the Starter Kit Plus Promotion LOOMS LARGE! Like…tonight. It. Ends. Tonight! Which means that if you’ve been waiting for the last minute…that minute is upon us and the time is now! Click right here for more info and to get started! Or holler at me with any questions! 🙂
After the pretty-but-involved fun fold of yesterday – I felt like we needed a cardstock-palate-cleanser – so…I swung the pendulum ALL the way back with a really clean-and-simple Christmas card! It uses the Cottage Wreaths set – and is decorated with some glittery Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder flowers. Take a look-see!

Hello hello! How goes your weekend so far? Wayne’s been busy – he got all the steel up on the sides of the garden shed yesterday – whoo-hoo!! And Finny and I had a playdate with his sister Scout – and Jax, Teddy, Higgins and Reba! So – big day here!
And then, last night – I got on YouTube and shared a cool fun fold – called an Exploding Box! I got to try one at our retreat last weekend – my friend Susan Stanley brought it as her shoebox swap – and I loved it! So…I made another one – this one using the wunnermus Fitting Florets DSP and the Framed Florets Bundle – you can get all these new goodies on 1 Nov! Take a look-see:

Happy weekend, y’all! I realized that – two weeks from today, we’ll be rounding up our teammates and heading over to the OnStage Local event in Jacksonville! Wow – I can’t believe it’s so close! Between my Critters team and Amy’s Inkin’ Team – we’ve got TWELVE folks just in Florida with us! And we’ll have team members in Locals all over the country, too. How cool is that!? I’m excited to see everyone – we ALWAYS have a great time at the SU events. AND…we’ll get to see (and order from!) the new Jan – Jun 2023 Mini and Jan-Feb 2023 Sale-A-Bration Catalogs. Whoo-hoo!!
For today, though – I’ll be trying to get some things done to prep for being gone – OnStage AND Dinney!! 😉 And tonight, I’ll be on with y’all at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers YouTube page with a fun…dare I say….”explosive”??…project for you! Here’s a sneaky peek!
Good morning and happy weekend-eve! Hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend. I honestly don’t know WHAT is on our playlist so…I’m just going to play it by ear! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
My card today is another CASE (I know – it’s like I’ve not had an original thought in my head all week!! 😉 ) – this one from my friend and upline Amy Koenders! Her shoebox swap card from the retreat last weekend – using the Brightest Beauty bundle – really inspired me for this one – but I used the Forever Fern stamp set and coordinating Forever Flourishing Die set! And…the cool a la carte die set called Fabulous Frames. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a sweet sketch challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
I figured this would be a good day to go all-Autumn-all-the-time – our trees are going crazy in their Fall colors, so…I was inspired! I pulled out the Cottage Rose set – to do a little white-wash technique – and the Cottage Wreaths set for the main feature. Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy Hawwmp Day! That ole MikeMikeMike just keeps showing up! 🙂
So – I have some exciting news…we decided yesterday that Wayne’s going to go down to OnStage with me in November and then – on the Sunday after the event – we’re going to drive the additional 2 1/2 hours south to Orlando and the Home of the Mouse! Yep – going to DinneyWorld! AND – maybe even to Universal for a day. Star Wars – Guardians of the Galaxy – HogWarts – Soaring – Mission to Mars – here we come!! I’ve been wanting to go back for a while and…this seemed like a great time to do it! Whoo-hoo!!
Okay. Back to bizness! Today’s card is a CASE of another card from this past weekend – and AGAIN from Karen Ksenzacovic!! Her card reminded me how much I love the Triple Time Technique. So…out it came – with the sweet Splendid Thoughts stamp set taking center stage. Take a look-see:
Good morning everyone and welcome to the Fun Folds Blog Hop for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! We’ve got a talented line-up and…I think you’re going to like what you see! This’ll be a once-a-month hop and…all our cards will be fun folds!! Whoo-hoo!
At our retreat last weekend, my friend Karen Ksenzakovic gave us all adorable little sticky notepad holders – that are ALSO easel folds! I loved it so much that I asked for her permission to make my own to share with you – and she said yes! Thanks, Karen K!
Mine features the available-soon Framed & Festive stamp set, plus the Fitting Florets DSP. I actually made three different versions using the entire new suite – including the Framed Florets Bundle! Here’s the first one I made – it’s perfect for Christmas!

Good morning on Monday! It’s back to reality (ie: cooking my own meals!!) after a most wonderful weekend. I wish we could do these retreats once a MONTH instead of once a YEAR!! Such a good time with friends – fun crafting – and amazing food!! 🙂
My card today is a simple little number using the uber-pretty Perched in a Tree bundle – the Aspen Tree die set provides the star of the show! – and some elegant vanilla-and-gold Lights Aglow Specialty DSP! Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! Well – as is ALWAYS the case with our Critters/Inkin Krews retreats – the weekend has FLOWN by! I can’t believe we’re headed to breakfast and a little more stamping and chatting and then…we’ll be hitting the road until NEXT YEAR!! 🙂 Maybe YOU’ll be joining us next year? This is a great time to join the team – what with the amazing Starter Kit Plus Promotion going on right now! And – you could be poised to snag a spot at the retreat next year (after enjoying your demo discount all year long!!). Just throwing that out there! 😉
We had a bunch of amazing projects this weekend – and I’ll be sharing them with you tomorrow. Mine is the subject of today’s card share! I did a Faux side step card – using the gorgeous Framed Florets bundle and the coordinating Framed & Festive stamp set! Some Fitting Florets DSP formed the base – and gave me a wunnermus flower!
