Happy Last-Tuesday-in-January, y’all! Did you know that the last Tuesday in January is…National Plan For Vacation Day?? Well – it IS! So…I figured all of you who were on my YouTube videos last week – who recommended that we NEED to go to the Blarney Castle when we go to Ireland in May – would be thrilled beyond words (wink) to know that we’re going to do it! We’ll head from Killarney back to Dublin and swing a little south to hit County Cork and the castle. Our family was from County Cork so…it’s two ticks on the bucket list for me! We will – for various reasons!! – NOT be kissing the Blarney Stone! Don’t ask the reasons – if you know, you know! 😉
For today, I wanted to give you a look at the sweet January Paper Pumpkin Kit – it’s the Key To My Heart kit – and it’s perfect for this time of year!
When I opened the box, I found everything I needed to put together nine pretty cards – including the exclusive stamp set and a Fresh Freesia Ink Spot!
Good morning, y’all – happy new work week! Didja do anything fun this weekend? We stuck pretty close to home – but that was a good thing! I spent some time on Saturday uploading all my Retired goodies from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini and the Jul – Aug 2022 SAB catalogs (plus a few other things!). So – be sure you head over there and check it all out! The info is down below! 🙂
When that was done, I sat down to make a card to share – and I pulled out the new Brushed Bouquet bundle. It’s a beautiful image-only set, so…I also went to the Peaceful Moments stamp set for a birthday sentiment. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! For some reason, I’ve been thinking the Super Bowl was today. Why did I think it was played in January? You can see I keep VERY close tabs on professional football, right? 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
My card today is a really cool one (she says modestly) using the new Greatest Journey bundle and one of my favorite DSP designs ever – from the coordinating Enjoy the Journey DSP! Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! Happy weekend! Not sure what’s on our agenda today – it’s chilly so…betting it’ll be INSIDE! 🙂
What I DO know is that I’ll be going live tonight at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers YouTube channel with a card that I think is pretty cool! Here’s a sneaky peek!
Good morning on the cusp of the weekend! I hope you’ve had a good week and that you’re ready to wind down and take a couple of days off!
My card for today uses the sweet new Nested Friends bundle – which has one of the best bird and nest images in it that I’ve ever seen! I also pulled out the free Day At The Farm DSP and…a few other goodies! 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 great – and timely! – theme 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!
With the help of my friends on my Zoom the Craftroom the other night, I made four card fronts from the pretty Country Floral Lane DSP – using the Stack-Cut-Shuffle technique. It was a simple jump to the Country Bouquet stamp set for this week’s theme. So…I pulled out one of the card fronts I’d made and created today’s card! Take a look-see:

Good Wednesday morning – again! This is my second post today – if you’re looking for the card I shared this morning – here ’tis!
I wanted to let you know that it’s time to kick off a new Online Host Club! This one will run from February thru July and I’ve got openings!
MIKEMIKEMIKEMIKEMIKEMIKE!! Guess what day it is?!? It’s HAWWWWWMP DAY! We’re cresting the hill and headed into the weekend once again! At the rate that January is whizzing by…it’ll be time to put the TREE up again in a heartbeat!
Or…do I?? 😳😳😳
But – not today, people. Not today! Today, we’ve got a fun card – that could easily work as a masculine card if you needed one – using the new Conversation Bubbles bundle and some Ready to Ride DSP! Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! Hope you’re having a great week wherever you are!
An old family friend recently passed away and I needed a sympathy card, so…I pulled on my thinking cap and spent some time perusing my shelves for the perfect tool. (My Zoom the Craftroom ladies had to spend a little time staring at my back! 🤷♀️ ) I settled on the sweet Ginkgo Branch stamp set and just used it with a little sponging to make a clean, simple and elegant card for a somber need. Take a look-see:
Good morning and welcome back to the work week! Have you got something fun planned for the week or is it all work all the time? After last week’s 4-day week, that extra day seems…like a bummer!
My card today is a super easy one to make – and it showcases the Scenic Garden Host-Exclusive stamp set from the Jan – Feb 2023 Sale-a-Bration catalog! I’ll let you know at the end how you can get it for yourself for FREE! Scenic Garden is an image-only stamp set – so you’ll likely want a sentiment with it. I used the new Happy Labels stamp set and its bundled Happy Labels Punch! The whole thing was anchored by a pretty piece of Regency Park 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see:
