Good morning, y’all!  I hope your week is going well!  Want to remind you that today is the very last day for you to get in on my 2019 Occasions bundles – where you’ll get big savings and some extra freebies.  Not to mention Sale-A-Bration goodies!  Scroll down for the deets and then don’t delay – get signed up right away!

I’ve got a sweet little card for you today – it uses a stamp set that you may have overlooked in your perusals of the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  It’s called Fable Friends and it’s ridiculously cute!  Then I kicked it up a notch (BAMM!) with some greenery from the Wonderful Floral Framelits, a little Gingham Gala DSP and a bit of Basket Weave.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lattice Part of My Story Sneak Peek!

Happy Happy 2019!!  Whoo-hooo!!

I hope y’all had a safe and happy New Year’s Eve – ours was a quiet one – as always.  Watching sappy movies and listening to the firecrackers from around the area.

And today, we’re getting ready to eat black-eyed peas and greens – health and wealth! – for the New Year.

No one needs to tell me about bugs in the peas, okay?  I candled every single pea and there’s not a one to be seen! 😉

So – for the first card of the New Year – I’ve got another Sneak Peek – this time from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  One of the pretty stamp sets you’ll be able to pick for FREE with a $50 purchase is the Lovely Lattice set – which is a beautiful floral set.  And, there’s a second set, called Part of My Story, which is all sentiments.  What a perfect pairing!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Needlepoint Nook

Good morning, y’all!  Here we are – on Friday again!  On the edge of another weekend.  And…on the brink of….Christmas!  25 days.

Twenty.

Five.

Days.

That’s not a lot of days, y’all!!

Oh – and another thing we’re on the brink of today.  Today is the last day before the forever-disappearance of the wonderful Snowflake Showcase!  We already witnessed the demise of the White Velvet Paper.  Now – the rest of this suite is almost gone. 🙁

I thought I’d give you one last look at this suite – focusing on the non-Christmas stamp set – Happiness Surrounds.  And I added it to a little new Needlepoint Nook and Gingham Gala DSPs (which you’ll be able to get on 3 Jan 19). Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek Gingham Butterfly Gala

Good morning!!  Hard to believe it’s already….HAAAWWWWMPPP DAY!!  Whoo-hoo!  And – one week from tomorrow it’s time for your stretchy pants, huh?  Y’all doing turkey?  Ham?  Turkey AND Ham?!?

We’re in the turkey and ham camp.  We’re going to smoke a turkey this year and let Honeybaked do their thing for the ham.  And then we’re going to try to keep the rest of the over-abundance to a minimum.

I don’t hold out much hope! 😉

So – yesterday was a pretty dreary, cold and rainy day here in GA – and I think that drove my decision to use a new stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!

Also – I had this…

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Your Day!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.

I have a plane flight planned.  Which – is NOT fun.  Not in any way that you slice it.  Tomorrow’ll be a 12 hour day to get back to Atlanta.  Bleh bleh bleh.  But we’ve had a great visit and gotten done all the things we needed to do while I was here.  So – bonus!

But – expectation management:  I will NOT be doing a Facebook live tomorrow – so sorry!  I don’t even land in Atlanta until a little after 5, so…just can’t do it, y’all!  I’ll be back next weekend, I promise!!

Let’s not think about that unpleasantness right now, though, shall we?  Instead, let’s take a look at a card that comes from the second stamp set in the upcoming Snowflake Showcase (available 1 Nov – 30 Nov 18).  This is the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and…it gives a completely different look from the Snow Is Glistening set I used yesterday.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, my peeps – hope you’re having a great week!  It’s gorgeous – again!  – here in Colorado – although…it was like…13F when I got up this morning.  Which is approximately 50F too cold for this girl! 😉

My card today is from the soon-to-be-available Happiness Surrounds stamp set.  This is a set in the Snowflake Showcase suite coming in November.  It’s only going to be available for a limited time – so be ready to snag it up on 1 Nov.  I paired it with some more pumpkin-y goodness from the Toil & Trouble DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Just a Note to Wish You Well

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going swimmingly!

WE will not be swimming – cuz of how it’s colder than a well-digger’s lunch bucket here (that’s REALLY cold in case you’re unfamiliar with the analogy!).

So – I’ve come to the sad realization that I just don’t have enough internet speed/bandwidth here to do a FB Live – so…we’re going to have to skip that for today.  I’ll try to be back next week, though!

I made a simple little card using the Wishing You Well stamp set and some pumpkins from the Toil & Trouble DSP.  Take a look-see:
