Good morning and happy Tuesday! I hope your last few days of November 2022 are going well! Mine are – even though I am having trouble coming to terms with the fact that it’s already practically Christmas again! Seriously – where IS the time going?!? 😳😳😳
With Thanksgiving in the rear view – it’s time to really focus on Christmas! Well – until the Jan – Apr 2023 Pre-Order starts on Thursday – then – you’ll start to see some projects with THOSE new goodies! 😉 To that end – I pulled out the Merriest Moments stamp set and made a simple and easy Christmas card for you today! Take a look-see:
Good morning! It’s Monday and back to work!! And – isn’t this Cyber Monday or some such?!? Talk about gilding a sow’s ear! Nothing REALLY makes Monday all that great – not even the prospect of a sale, am I right?!? Even as a retiree – Monday isn’t my fave. 🤷♀️🤷♀️
My card today is a super easy one – featuring one of my fave bundles in the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog – the Decorated with Happiness Bundle! Sadly – it’s NOT on the carryover list which means…its time with us is limited! 🙁 I have to have faith that Stampin’ Up! will bring us a pine bough die cut as wunnermus as THIS one is in a future holiday catalog! 🤞🤞🤞 Take a look-see:

Good Sunday morning, y’all! Hope your weekend is going well – mine has been a cooking frenzy. No – NOT Christmas cookies – not quite yet! Instead – I made another loaf of sourdough bread – the best recipe YET! It’s tangy like sourdough – but…soft like all our favorite sandwich breads! FINALLY – I found the right recipe! And – we smoked the turkey and got it prepped for sandwiches and turkey stock. The brisket is on the smoker for a few more hours so we can replenish the stash in the freezer. Sourdough crackers. Sourdough Blueberry Chocolate Chip muffins. Yes – the starter was a busy boy this weekend! 🙂 If you’re wanting to start a sourdough starter – or just looking for recipes – The Pantry Mama is an OUTSTANDING source!
And – I am totally sure that sourdough recipes is why you’re here, right?!? 😂😂
I am betting not so…let’s get going! My card today sports one of my favorite fun folds – an easel on a side (aka book!) fold card! I made it as an Anniversary card – using the Ringed with Nature Bundle and the new Dainty Delight bundle from the upcoming Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog. And – the paper I used is one you’ll be able to get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 order – called Dandy Designs DSP! Take a look-see:

Good morning and Happy Saturday! Hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend – and nice weather to do it! And…have something on the menu today besides leftovers?? 😉
I’m planning to go live at 7pm Eastern tonight – over on my Stamps-N-Lingers YouTube channel – with a fun card for you – it’ll mix a little of this and a little of that, a little old, a little new….and I think you’ll like it! Here’s a sneaky peek!
Good morning and happy Black Friday! Are you a Friday-after-Thanksgiving shopper? Tree putter-upper? Food coma recoverer?? However you spend the day AFTER T-day, I hope that you had a most wonderful holiday! We had a nice time with our friends – all the kids were there so it was a full house!!
I wanted to give you a look at the cool November Paper Pumpkin Kit – it’s a Gift-Tag kit called From the North Pole – and I love it!
I spent about half-a-heartbeat contemplating doing something OTHER than the gift tags – there are lots of fun alternatives – like cards! – but…cards I have. TAGS I need – and this kit let me put together TWELVE quick as a bunny. And they’re super cute!
Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday (AND THANKSGIVING!!) – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a great sketch challenge (have I ever mentioned that sketch challenges are my fave??) 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 decided to pay homage to the day and make a card that expresses how we should all be feeling today! And – not coincidentally – let me play with one of my favorite stamp sets of all time – the Soft Seedlings set! And – one of my other top faves – the Cottage Wreaths bundle – played a strong supporting role. Take a look-see:
Good morning again, y’all! As promised, here’s the post you’ve been waiting for! If you didn’t get a chance to see the card I shared this morning – with the sneak peek of the new Fancy Flora Suite – here ‘tis!
Thanks to everyone who left a comment to tell us what they’re looking forward to in the new catalog! We’re getting closer to being able to get it ALL, y’all!!
So…I put the numbers into the Random picker and….our first winner – for the Cozy & Bright Kit – is….
Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, ya’ll – and happy Thanksgiving-eve! I hope that you’re all ready for the Big Day – or…have made your list so that you WILL be ready for the Big Day when said Big Day shows up tomorrow! I made my list and – with any luck! – will have it all done before we head to our friend’s house tomorrow afternoon! 🙂
My card today is another Sneak Peek from the upcoming Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog and it’s from the gorgeous Fancy Flora Suite! This one features TWO bundles that are meant to work together like a hand and a glove. The Two-Tone Flora and Something Fancy bundles are wunnermus and the coordinating Fancy Flora DSP is stunning. I’ve used nearly all the suite on this card, so…take a look-see:
