Stampin’ Up! For the Love of Felt Project Kit

Hey, y’all – it’s Tuesday so we’re 2/5th of the way thru the work week.

I mean – if I tracked things like that.

Which I don’t.

🙂

My card today is actually cardS.  Cards made using a seriously cool Project Kit from the Annual Catalog called…For the Love of Felt.  Check it out!

This is a Project Kit – which means…you need to grab the For the Love of Felt stamp set separately.

FOR THE LOVE OF FELT CLING STAMP SET

Other than that, bring your inks (Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand, Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce) and adhesive – Liquid Glue, SNAIL and Dimensionals.  The Kit includes the rest of what you need to make 12 really pretty cards – 4 each of 3 designs, each with super cute felt embellishments!

Oh – and it has a seriously sweet box to contain your creations when they’re done!

I pulled my kit out on Monday and put it together.  Here’s the cards – and the envelopes are all decorated on the front and the back flap.  You know how much I like a decorated envelope!

Now – I’m going to show you a mistake.

Bad demonstrator?  Maybe.  But…I seriosuly WANT you guys to buy this kit – cuz it’s totes adorbs – and I seriously want you to end up with 12 cards that you LOVE!

So.  Here’s my mistake.

See the problem?  Know why I messed up?

I didn’t read the directions.  And I got in a bit of a hurry.  So…on this last design, I stamped the leaves first.

The directions CLEARLY tell you to stamp the sentiment first.  If I had done that…the leaves would be where they belong and not on top of the sentiment!

So.  Read.  The.  Directions.  And…heck – I’d even FOLLOW them! LOL!

For The Love of Felt would be a really cool gift for someone – an entire set of wonderful note cards and envelopes, ready to send, in a perfectly decorated box

Check out this quick video and then….get it for yourself! 🙂

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Here’s a Card With Apples (a sneak peek!)

Good Monday, y’all!  Hope you had a most wonderful weekend and are ready to Soldier thru the work-week! 🙂  Did you do anything fun to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon-landing?  Like….write something while hanging upside down?  Have a big ole glass of Tang?  Eat some freeze-dried ice cream? 🙂

Yeah – I didn’t do any of those things either.  I just thought back to where I was 50 years ago – and thought “Man.  That was COOL!”  Cuz…it totally was!

And – brave beyond measure.  Even though it is NOT – it SEEMS commonplace to us now, but…can you even imagine?  We had no CLUE what they’d find up there.  Or whether they’d come home (like…. to the point that a speech was waiting for the President just in case they didn’t).  But…they walked out there, strapped on a Saturn V and said….GO!

Wow.  Just….wow.  Body parts made of titanium wrapped in diamond!

On a much MUCH more mundane level, let’s look at a card, shall we?  This one uses a fun sentiment set from the Annual catalog called Here’s A Card.  And – I used the new Apple Punch and Come To Gather DSP (from the 2019 Holiday Catalog), too.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White and embossed it in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder, then matted it on Pear Pizzazz for the card front.

Next up, I cut two Rectangle Stitched Dies from the wood-design of the new Come To Gather DSP (coming on 4 Sept!) and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the new Apple Punch, I cut three apples from checked paper in the Come To Gather DSP.  I also used the punch to make three Early Espresso stems and three Pear Pizzazz leaves.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stems and leaves to each apple.

I pulled out the Support Ribbon dies and cut a few little hearts from Cajun Craze.  I adhered them to the two apples with Liquid Glue.  Then I stuck all the apples onto the card front with more Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Here’s A Card in Cajun Craze on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with the small Rectangle Stitched Die.  Then I popped it onto the middle apple with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish is off, I tied three small bows from Cajun Craze Linen Thread (yup – you read that right!) from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack (coming 4 Sept) and adhered them with little dabs of Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Here’s A Card in Cajun Craze to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner I added another apple – letting the edges hang over and then trimming the excess with my Paper Snips.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another apple on the front…

…and more of the checkered Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness – I love the new Apple Punch (it ALSO makes pumpkins!!) – and the Come To Gather DSP.  You’ll be able to grab both of those – plus the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo – on 4 Sept.  Unless…you join us now or on 1 Aug.  THEN you could get them even faster!  I hope you like!

Check out the Extra Extra Joining Special and…let’s chat! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! It’s a Most Wonderful Time of the Year Sneak Peek!

Good morning, my peeps!  Happy Sunday!  Hope you’re staying cool wherever you may be today!  My Weather Live app yestedray informed me that the “Feels Like” condition was “A Sauna”.  And it was right!! Yuk!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video, I appreciate it – hope you liked the card and the peek at a few new goodies in the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  If not, but you’d like to take a gander at the replay, here ’tis!

I made a little Christmas-in-July card, using a couple of new goodies from the catalog – including the new Most Wonderful Time stamp set and Product Medley.  PLUS the wunnermus new Tree Punch.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I started very simply with a Whisper White panel matted on Old Olive for the card front.

I wrapped some of the Gold/White Tinsel Trim (one of the pieces of the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley!) twice around the matted panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

With the new Tree Punch, I punched two Christmas Trees from one design of the DSP in the Product Medley and a third from the second design.  I lined them up and popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On one of the included sticker labels, I stamped a sentiment from the Most Wonderful Time stamp set (great news!  This stamp set is INCLUDED in the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley!  Whoo-hooo!) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I used my Embossing Buddy on the back of the sticker to un-stick-ify it, then popped it onto the trees with Dimensionals.

I tied a tinsel bow around the wrapped tinsel and added three little gold stars (also in the Medley) to the tops of the trees and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the pretty big tree in the Most Wonderful Time stamp set.  I inked it up with Old Olive ink, stamped it off TWICE on scrap paper, then stamped it in the middle of a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I added a second sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink using my Stamparatus.  Then I added another gold star at the top of the tree.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the large tree in full-strength Old Olive – plus a gold star – on the front…

…and more of the DSP on the envelope flap.  AND – cuz I smudged….the back of the envelope got a small Most Wonderful Time tree image in Old Olive.

Et Voila!  LOVE this Most Wonderful Time set!  So…remember what a “Product Medley” is – it has a ton of elements – stamps, paper, dies, and various accessories – to help you create lots and lots of wonderful projects!  You supply the “staples” (card stock, adhesive, inks, acrylic blocks, etc)!  And then let your creativity loose!  I KNOW you’re going to love this one as much as I do – and I can’t wait until you can get your mitts on it in September!  Hope you like!

Now – this Product Medley isn’t available to y’all until 4 Sept.  UNLESS….you decide to go ahead and take advantage of the Extra Extra Joining Special soon!  Join right now – and you’ll be able to take part in the Demonstrator Pre-Order starting on 1 August.  Or, wait until the 1st to join – and you can use 2019 Holiday goodies to fill out your Starter Kit!  Awesome opportunity either way you go!!  Give me a shout if you want to know more – and/or check out my Join My Team Page! :)TTFN

Stampin’ Up! Check You Out Congratulations!

Happy Friday!  I hope your week has gone well – we’ve been getting back into the swing of things.  And trying to figure out what time zone we’re in! LOL!

Speaking of time-zones – if you live in Alabama – this is your Tax-Free Weekend!  Read down below to see what SU! products qualify for this big savings – then get shopping (and earn you some Bonus Days coupons while you’re at it!).

I’ve got a cute little number for you today, using a stamp set that you may have missed in your early looks thru the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  This one is called Check You Out – and…it’s totes adorbs!  Check it out!

How cute is that little owl?!?

I took inspiration for the layout from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

And the colors are from The Paper Players color challenge.

I started with a Basic Gray card base and stamped it all over with books from the Check You Out set.  I put all three book images onto an acrylic block, inked them with Blueberry Bushel and stamped them multiple times across the card front.

I used a piece of Granny Apple Green and a same-size piece of scripty paper in Blueberry Bushel from the 2018-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to create the card front, adhering them at jaunty angles with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Rectangle Stitched Die from Whisper White and stamped a Check You Out sentiment at the bottom in Blueberry Bushel.

I cut a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon, doubled it over and used SNAIL to adhere it to the Whisper White panel.  Then I added a Mini Library Clip at the top and popped it all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the check-out card in Balmy Blue on a piece of Whisper White.  I added the little owl in Basic Gray and a sentiment in Blueberry Bushel.  Then I fussy cut the image (cutting off the extra “owl’ – what I really wanted was his feet! 😉 ).

I stamped the owl again in Basic Gray, added some Granny Apple Green spectacles and fussy cut him.

I popped the check-out card onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then used Mini Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to add the fussy cut owl.  Finally, I tied a little bow from Blueberry Bushel 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon and adhered it to the Library Clip with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Check You Out sentiment in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel.  I added a Balmy Blue mortar board (don’t need a graduation card?  Leave that off!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green and into the Basic Gray card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Basic Gray owl, Granny Apple Green spectacles and a Balmy Blue mortar board on the front…

…and more of the Blueberry Bushel 2018-2020 In Color DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously?  How sweet is that little hoo-ter!?  I just love the glasses, don’t you?  Although it’s kind of a “fly-over set”, Check You Out is a versatile set, with sentiments for thank you, congratulations, graduation and “just checking up” cards.  I hope you like!

If you love holidays—and don’t love taxes—we have some great news for you! Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies over the next several weeks. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

If you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia or Wisconsin (whoo-hoo!) —click the picture below to see which products will be tax-free for each state !  HINT:  ALABAMA is THIS weekend!

Important Note: Orders must be placed with Stampin’ Up! during the sales tax holiday period to receive these select items tax free; each period begins—and ends—at midnight (Mountain Time).

Finn continues to improve – we’re tapering the steroid cough medicine and are half-way thru the antibiotic.

He felt good enough last night to bring Mr. Reindeer to me… 🙂

He did mention that he thinks he’ll probably need to go back to see his friends at the vet.  You know – just to be safe.

And get…pets and belly rubs!

Stampin’ Up! Pocketful of Happiness for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch 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 decided to go “obvious” when I saw the sketch and pulled out the new Pocketful of Happiness stamp set and the matching Pocket Dies to make a birthday card for the challenge!  Take a look-see:

Here’s our sketch:

I also pulled elements from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started with some woodgrain paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on Soft Sea Foam for the card front.

Next up is a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the Corrugated Embossing Folder and matted on Soft Sea Foam – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large and small floral images from Pocketful of Happiness in Tuxedo Black.  I used the matching die from the Pocket Die set to cut the large image and I fussy cut the small flower.

To color the images, I used the Dark Stampin’ Blends in Petal Pink, So Saffron, Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the “pocket” and the smaller flower images to the card front.  Then, cuz…hello?  It’s me!…I stamped the large image again and fussy cut the dove, then popped her over the first dove with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With the Well Written Dies, I cut three sentiments in Basic Black and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I added a gold Metallic Pearl to the card front – two in flower centers and one off to the side on the pocket.  Finally, with a Glue Dot, I adhered a small bow tied from Linen Thread.  And..that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a sentiment from the Pocketful of Happiness set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to a Whisper White panel.  I also added the floral spray image and colored it with my Stampin’ Blends.  I added a gold Metallic Pearl in the middle of the flower, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the floral spray image on the front…

…and more Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the florals in the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set – and the sentiments range from birthday to thank you, in lovely fonts.  And the Well Written Die set is just such a workhorse – I really LOVE word dies!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Modern Heart is a Well Written Thank You

Well.  Tuesday arrives.  And when I look out the window I don’t see the Greek isles – or miles and miles of ocean.

And – when I go to get a cup of coffee, no one will admonish me to “washy-washy”!! 🙂

It’s truly back to the real world, my peeps! 🙂

My Katy is fine – looks like she got along okay in our absence.  I wanted to thank Sonya for taking care of her, so…a card seemed to be in order!  And – unlike the horse-care-thank-you…this one needed a cat.  So…out came the Cat Punch.  And I paired it up with the new Modern Heart stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The color scheme for this one came from this week’s Sunday Stamps color challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White.  In the middle, I stamped the bold “swath” image from the new Modern Heart stamp set.  I stamped it twice in Bermuda Bay ink.  With the tiny heart image, I stamped here and there in Pretty Peacock.  Then I matted the panel on Highland Heather.

On a second piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large heart image in Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored the various shapes on the inside with my Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends in Bermuda Bay, Shaded Spruce, Highland Heather, Purple Posy, and Pretty Peacock.  Then I fussy cut the heart.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to the card front.

I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of my fussy cut Modern Heart and used them to wind several loops of Silver Metallic Thread.  Then I popped the heart onto the card front.

I punched the cat out of Basic Black card stock using the Cat Punch and adhered her over the heart with Liquid Glue.

Using the Well Written Dies, I cut “thanks” and “You” from Whisper White.  I snipped the “s” off of “thanks” and then adhered the words to the card with Liquid Glue.

I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the large Modern Heart in stamped-off-TWICE Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I added a sentiment in Highland Heather.  I scattered some tiny hearts across the panel in Bermuda Bay.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more hearts on the front…

…and I used my Stamparatus to add the Modern Heart images on the back as well!

Et Voila!  I wasn’t sure about this Modern Heart set – but was intrigued by the samples in the catalog, so I added it to my stash!  And boy, am I glad that I did!  It’s obviously going to be a great set to use for all sorts of cards!  I love it in the peacock colors of the challenge.  I hope you like!

The Man is home!  He was happy to see us – for about 15 seconds, then he zoomed around the Puppy Tubs lobby sniffing every single sniff.  And debating if he could get away with grabbing a bone out of one of the baskets!  Even the pictures are blurry! 😉

He was damp – so he’d obviously had a play in the pool in the morning – and ready to get in the car (after we got his suitcase and food bucket!).

That’s not his suitcase – that’s my new Soda Stream!

On the way to the house, right at the mailbox, we saw a doe and two (tiny!) fawns!  I was WAY WAY too slow to capture them on camera – but…the Man totally saw them!

Once we made it to the house, he unpacked his suitcase, putting Mr. Reindeer and Mr. Elephant away.  Then…it was time for….

…a nap in front of the air conditioning vent.  This travel stuff is exhausting – the jet lag is just horrendous! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Let it Ride Thank You

Well – it’s the last day. 🙁  For our cruise AND for Double Peppermints (just sayin’!).

It’s been wonderful and folks are already looking forward to Maui.  Whaaaa?

I’m guessing by the time you read this, we’ll be somewhere over the Atlantic bucking the jet stream to get back stateside!

My card today is destined for the lady who has been taking care of the girls while we were gone.  Which means – it needed horses and woodsy-ness.  And that naturally meant…Let it Ride and the Woodland Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and stamped the pretty pine trees image from the Let It Ride set all over it in Mossy Meadow.  Then I embossed it in the Woodland Embossing Folder.  I cut it to size and matted it on Mossy Meadow using Liquid Glue.

I pulled out a couple of lengths of the linen ribbon in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack and used SNAIL to adhere them criss-crossedy onto the card front.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Let It Ride horse head onto a piece of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and then cut it with a Stitched Nested Labels die.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment from Mossy Meadow card stock using the Well Written Die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

A couple of Bird Ballad Trinkets leaves – adhered with Glue Dots – set the stage for a Linen Thread double-loop bow topped with a double-length simple bow from Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second Let It Ride horse image in Tuxedo Black onto a Crumb Cake panel.  In the middle, I added a stamped-off-TWICE Mossy Meadow line of pine trees.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the grazing horses in Tuxedo Black on the front…

…and more of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP – with a Mossy Meadow tree line! – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I hope that my friend likes this Well Written Let It Ride thank you!  I am ever-so-grateful for the good care I know she’s taken of my ladies while we were gone!  And – I hope you like, too! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Incentive Cruise Last Stops! Athens and Olympia

Good Saturday to you all!

I am mystified, amazed and not a little sad to think that this will be my last “tour” post!  Yes, it’s true.  It’s Saturday morning and we’ve been to our last port of call.  As this posts, we’re steaming towards Rome.  Tomorrow – we’ll be leaving on a jet plane!  Back to the real world. 🙁  These trips go by in the blink of an eye – the saying that time flies when you’re having fun isn’t a saying for nothing!

Our last two stops were at Athens and then Katakolon.  I took a ton of pictures – hello?  Tourist? Yes, that would be me!  So figured I’d share a few of them with you – and will post the bulk of them on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  Hope you’ll check them all out! 🙂

Athens was pretty amazing – busy busy busy.  Lots of people.  We got a ton of warnings about pick-pockets (more here than anywhere we’d been), so we were keeping a sharp eye!  The traffic was cray-cray, so the bus ride into the city center took a minute – but we got some gorgeous looks at the water!

When we finally debarked the bus – to stern warnings to be “BACK ON TIME CUZ WE’RE LEAVING EXACTLY AT 2” we made our way to the bottom of the Acropolis.  And waited in line to get our tickets before beginning the climb.  I’m serious.  I hit my exercise goal half way up (and hadn’t done the treadmill that morning! :))

This is a view of the Acropolis from a slightly different perspective – but you can see it’s sorta up there, right?

As we climbed – for a ways it was on a pretty decent path, I took some pictures (using the moment to catch my breath, but…we’ll pretend it was just for the picture taking!)…

Did I mention there were a LOT OF PEOPLE?!?  As we got nearer to the top, the path got less path-y and way more climb-y…and the rocks were slippery – and the staff peeps were blowing their whistles at folks who tried to stop the flow to take a picture.  So – I didn’t!

Much

Finally – we reached the top.  And…Oh.  My.  Lord.  Folks – the pictures you see online and in books and on this post simply can’t REALLy do justice to the sheer enormity and architectural prowess of the Parthenon itself.  So – enjoy these pics, but…to truly “get” it – you need to put your own eyeballs on it!

After we’d seen what we went up to see, we climbed back down the hill and made a quick pass thru the Agora (marketplace)…

 

We saw the temple of Hephaestus – the God of Fire, Metallurgy and Blacksmithing (he was also known as Vulcan – not the Live Long and Prosper kind – the Roman mythology kind) and made note of some of the fauna of the area!

Finally – we had a few minutes left to get some lunch and then get ourselves back to the bus and return to ship-sweet-ship for the evening!  As we set sail, we waved good-bye to Athens!

While we slept, the ship made good time around to Katakolon and we awoke to a beautiful sunrise in the Mediterranean!

We backed into the port at Katakolo and boarded our bus for the Olympics.

Well – the birthplace of the ANCIENT Olympics!

This is a much greener area – with olive and citrus trees abounding.  I really like this area – and the little village of Olympia is very pretty indeed!  Also?  WAY fewer people this day! 🙂

We started at the actual archaeological site…

and strolled thru taking pictures here and there.  Take a look-see!

We came to the area where the lighting of the flame took place…

…and then thru the arch to the big field where the track events took place.

On your marks!

GO!

We discovered Nero’s Villa…a palatial spot (remarkably intact!) with a “luxurious bathroom” (their words!) for him to stay when he came to the games!

A bath-house (every other Friday whether they needed it or not)…

…was near a swimming area – this whole area had some definite Roman influence.

There was a lovely flowering bush nearby…

Finally, no tour would be complete without a Temple to Zeus..

Greece reconstructed one of the columns for the 2004 Summer Olympics – anticipating heavy tourism!

My handsome hubby posed for me to help you get some perspective – that pillar is pretty tall!

We ended the day with some gyros and – shocker! – gelato at a tavern on the main street!

That’s far from all the pictures we took in Athens and Olympia – I’ll load them onto my FB page as I can on the ship and then when I get to a little better internet!

Hope you’ve enjoyed a little peek at our fabulous trip!  I’m sorry to see it come to an end – but…know that next year in Maui will be awesome, too.  And…we got a look at the 2021 Trip.  Back onboard Royal Caribbean!!  This time on the Symphony of the Seas!!  WOWZA!!

See you tomorrow!

No news on the Man – I’m pretty sure he’s having a wonderful time at Puppy Tubs!

You might check them out on their Puppy Tubs FB page – they post pictures of all the kids playing.  He’s been on a few times in the last couple of days – if you leave them a comment they MIGHT get the clue that he’s sort of a big deal!! 🙂
