Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop! Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Feminine projects! We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!
I went with one of my all-time favorites – the Floral Romance Specialty DSP and let that gorgeous paper shine with a simple sentiment from Fable Friends for Easter. Take a look-see:
Well. Here we are. Monday. Again. Bleh.
That said – before our NEXT Monday together, I’ll be at OnStage. And ON our next Monday together….I’ll be sharing all the sneak peeks from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog! Speaking of – if you’re a current customer of mine, you’ll be on my list for mailing you a new catalog. I can order them on 2 May and as soon as I get them in hand I’ll send them out to you! If you aren’t a customer of mine – but would like to be – and aren’t already working with a Demonstrator! – place an order with me of $50 or more between now and 2 May to get on my mailing list! 🙂
My card for today is a super simple one – with a nice clean design! It uses the big and bold Life is Grand stamp set, plus some goodies here and there from the All My Love Suite! Take a look-see:

Happy Sunday, y’all! Are you doing something fun today? I have cards to make – an OnStage presentation to practice – and…lunch with a new friend! Looking forward to meeting her – she’s been a customer for a long time now. Very exciting to get to meet people and put faces to names and voices on the phone!! Yeah!!
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! If not, and you’d like to see how to make today’s project, here’s the replay on YouTube!

Good morning, my peeps! Happy weekend to you! And – we’re off for BOTH days! Thank the Lord – this has been a truly exhausting, frustrating and slow-going three weeks! My guys were SO ready for a break!
And – so was I! 🙂
So – we’re going to get together on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page tonight – I’m liking this Saturday timeframe! – at 7pm Eastern (also liking this time slot!!) to make a fun little project that I think will be just in time for Easter! Take a sneaky peek!
Well – we did it! Got to Friday again! Guess where I’ll be NEXT Friday!? Yep – on my way down to Charlotte for OnStage! I am so excited – both for the event AND to see all my friends in my team – and the folks I’ve met in the almost 5 years I’ve been in Stampin’ Up! AND – I’m super excited to be able to share sneak peeks of the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goodies!! Whoo-hoo!!
(Gotta practice my whoo-hoo-ing, you know!)
So – I recently added a beautiful stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog called His Grace to my stash. And I decided it was time for an Easter card – so…that’s what I did. Take a look-see:
Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s Hop is a color challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.
I played with one of our wonderful Host-Exclusive stamp sets from the 2019 Occasions catalog – to make a card for Mother’s Day. Just Because has perfect sentiments for the occasion – take a look-see:
Good morning! Hope your week is going well so far – we’re trying to come out the other side of the latest cold-snap here in Maryland. Yesterday was so darned cold in the hangar (where our “office” is) that I could hardly type! Supposed to get warmer tomorrow – so I’m keeping my frozen fingers crossed!
So – just to be sure we’re all on the same sheet of DSP…the news of my impending resignation from Stampin’ Up! yesterday was TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY an April Fool’s joke! I will not be quitting any time soon – either Stampin’ Up! OR Blogging! As long as you’ll read my ramblings – I’ll post them! And, should the day ever come when I might need to leave – I’ll give you plenty (PLENTY!!) of warning. I promise!
For those of you who figured it out yesterday – and then took me up on my offer of Double Peppermints – good on ya! You know me too well!
Now – on to our card. I thought I’d pull out a bundle that hasn’t seen the light of day for a minute – the Geared Up Garage and matching Garage Gears Thinlits. Then I set it all atop some Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see:

Good morning, you guys. There’s no easy way to say this so…I’ll just come right out with it. I’m sorry to tell you that I’ve decided to resign from Stampin’ Up! I realized this weekend that I am having trouble juggling work and SU! and something has to give. Much as I love Stampin’ Up! – and YOU guys!! – I have to make the decision that makes the most sense for me and my family.
So – we’ll do this one last card and…this will be my last blog post. 🙁
The card I have to share with you uses the Happiness Blooms DSP and a few sentiments from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. Take a look-see:

Good morning! Sunday has dawned….chilly…here in the mid-Atlantic! Again. Saturday was shirt-sleeve weather and today…not so much. Oh well. That’s what covers, mittens and caps are for, right??
If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video at the new time on the new day, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to see how to make today’s card, here’s the replay!
I used the gorgeous Wonderful Romance Suite of goodies for this one – including the stamp set by the same name and my favorite – the Floral Romance Specialty DSP. And I added a couple of sentiments from the All Things Thanks stamp set. Take a look-see:

Good Saturday, y’all! Hope this finds you well and ready for a great weekend!
So – my unofficial poll on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page yielded a pretty close tally on when folks wanted to do our weekly get-together to make a card. But in the end – with no mandate whatsoever – more folks wanted to do Saturdays at 7pm eastern than Sundays. Since that’s in line with how I was leaning anyway – that’s what we’re going to try for a bit – let’s see how it works, shall we?
Tonight, at 7pm eastern, on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page, we’re going to make a pretty thank you card with the All Things Thanks stamp set from the Annual Catalog and a few goodies – like the Wonderful Romance stamp set and Wonderful Floral Specialty DSP – from the 2019 Occasions catalog. Here’s a sneaky peek!
