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 and Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! Hope your week is going well! I am – sloooooowwwly! – digging out of the hole I managed to get myself in this week (time-wise!). I do NOT know how I did it but…all of a sudden – yikes! So – today is my get-caught-up day. Wish me luck!! 😉
The card I made for you today really appeals to me – I love the moody dark card front courtesy of the FREE Favored Flowers DSP. The pop of white from the Artistic Die set – with the flower-dy Queen Bee set atop it just….works! Take a look-see:

Good morning – and Happy Friday! By the time you read this – God willing and the creek don’t rise – we’ll be on our way to Florida! Yes. Yes, that’s right. We’re driving INTO the storm.
Cuz…we smart like that! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
I have faith it’s going to be okay – OnStage will be awesome and Dinney will be great next week!
The card I made yesterday on my Facebook Live is one that sort of developed while I was making it. I had no real plan in my head. But…I started with Soft Seedlings – and the Timeworn and Timber 3D Embossing Folders – so…it was destined to end up right in the middle of my wheelhouse! Take a look-see!
Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all – and happy T-2 days to Florida-bound!! I am slogging thru my list – and with any luck the list will end before my time to slog thru it runs out! I probably ought to stop ADDING things to the end of the list. 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️I hope you like!
I pulled out a fun fold for today’s card – it’s a cool one and I like it. I decorated it with images and die cuts from the Gathered Wheat bundle and some pretty paper from the Rustic Harvest DSP. The Scalloped Contours die set added a fun – and different! – touch to the inside of the card. Take a look-see:

Good morning! It’s Monday again, y’all! Hope you’re enjoying Daylight Standard Time. I love it so much!
Said no one EVER! YUK!! On the treadmill in the dark. Feed ponies in the evening in the dark. Final walk around with Finn – IN THE DARK! 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
Did I already say…YUK!?!
On a MUCH brighter note – I learned that the little baby brush (personalized, thank you very much!) was a BIG hit with miss Jules. Appears she’s walking around the house brushing her almost-luxurious locks with it – refusing to hand it over. Score!! 😉
I am hoping her parents liked the card that went with – and I’ll share it with you today! It’s a sweet little book-fold-easel card (one of my fave folds!) – and it’s adorned with an adorable heffalump from the Elephant Parade set and some Happy Forest Friends DSP. Take a look-see:

Hello hello! Happy Sunday! We had a great time yesterday – ate some cake, chatted with friends, cheered over the game! Had to leave a little before the game ended to come home to feed ponies. And Finn!
The card I made yesterday is a clean-and-simple little number – it’s a silhouette card using the Sunkissed stamp set – I was feeling in a tropical mood, I guess! And I created a cool cloudy-sky effect using the Basic Borders Die set. Take a look-see:
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 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, 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!

Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a great color 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!
The color challenge screamed BOUGHS OF HOLLY to me, so…never one to ignore a screaming challenge – I pulled it out! And I matched it up with its coordinating Leaves of Holly stamp set and bundled Holly Berry Dies. Plus…some pretty texture from the pine bough folder in the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders set. Take a look-see:
