Stampin’ Up! June 2023 Welcome Inn Paper Pumpkin Kit and a Peek at the July Kit!

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  It’s 5 July – and that is ONE DAY before 6 JULY.

Duh, right?

But – I tell you this because 6 July – aka Tomorrow! – is a Big Day.  LOTS of things kicking off tomorrow!  I’ve got them all outlined below – so be sure to read about them.  But – here’s a quick list of all the good things in store!

– Bonus Days Begin!
– NEW Online Exclusives Available!
– Clearance Rack Refresh!
– 48 Hours Half-Price Paper Pumpkin Sale!
– New All-Inclusive Kit Released!

So – we all love the Countryside Inn Suite, don’t we?  Of course we do! Well – the June Paper Pumpkin Kit – called Welcome Inn – coordinates very nicely with that suite!

I dug into one of my kits yesterday – I needed a creative break without needing a lot of brain bucket and this beautiful kit filled the bill perfectly!  In about 45 minutes, I had nine gorgeous cards ready to go!

When I opened up the kit – I found (as always!) – a pretty stamp set and an ink spot. Love that vase image!

And there was everything else I needed, too!

There are three designs in the kit – which is your fave??

I’m not sure I can pick a fave, myself, but…this first one is high on the list!  I love the balanced combination of the Boho Blue, Night of Navy and Calypso Coral! I pulled out my Boho Blue ink pad and added the vase to the inside of the cards!

The second design is all blues all the time!  I used the floral image on the inside in Night of Navy – this is the same image that I used to decorate the vase on the left side of the card front. 🙂

The final card is bright and cheery in Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight – which I carried to the inside of these cards, too!

RIGHT!?  Such a pretty kit!  And so quick to put together – no twine, no bows – just wonderful quick-to-add Night of Navy dots!  I love the pre-printed card bases – and…the DECORATED envelopes! #nonekkidenvelopes! 😎😎😎

Like videos?  Here’s a quick one from Stampin’ UP! so you can see how it went together!

If you’d like to buy one of these kits – as I mentioned at the start, I’ve got a couple extra full kits that a couple of you can pick up right nowThey’re in my Retired Shop – along with a lot of other fun faves!

Finn Fan Fix 

Well – yesterday was a long day.  As much for us as for Finn!

Chris came over and spent about 45 minutes examining Finn in the kitchen.  We could tell he was having either belly or back issues – and really not right.  The end decision was to take him to Chris’ office so he could do an ultrasound to see what was going on.

On the 4th of July.  His day off.  What a wonderful young man he is!!  And a very good vet, indeed!

We took Chris’s truck and Finn was pretty happy.  A ride is a ride is a ride!

I didn’t get pictures at the office.  HIPAA precludes that…hello?!  🤔 And – I was busy holding and consoling and petting.  So – lots of words – sorry.

The ultrasound was scary for The Man – he had to be upside down and he didn’t want to be.  He got his belly shaved a little.  And some rubbing alcohol sprayed on (which was nice and cool and I think he actually LIKED that part).  Chris didn’t see anything that caused him any worry – so that was a relief.

Chris wanted to give him some fluids – said he didn’t seem dehydrated but a little fluid would help if his belly was cramping.  So we did that.

And then – the BAD THING happened.  There’s a medicine they give dogs for nausea when they have surgery – and Chris said it would help him feel a lot better but that it would…burn as it was injected.

Uhmmm – yes.  I believe it did.  My poor Fur Man cried.  And cried.  And CRIED!  Loudly.  Looking at me for help.  And…there wasn’t one thing I could do to fix it and it simply broke my heart. 🙁   It didn’t take too awfully long for it to stop hurting him – but it felt like an aeon.

On the way home – he was…not real happy with me.

And…he was pantaloony-kicked on top of it.

BUT.  He DID feel better!

Like – good enough to be quite interested in Wayne’s lunch again!

And to eat his dinner…

But he is a tired tired puppy.

Tomorrow I’ll get an appointment with our regular vet to do some bloodwork and be sure he’s not anemic or having other issues.  But – I’m less (read WAY WAY less) worried than I was Monday night or yesterday morning and so grateful to Chris for going out of his way for us and Finn on his day off!

And – thank you to all of you who’ve had him in your thoughts today! 🙂
