Christmas

Stampin’ Up! Gleaming Detailed Bells Are Ringing

Well – it’s Sunday!  Yesterday was fun – if loooooooonnnggg! – and I met some new folks and made new friends!  And made some fun projects!

Today’s card is another Christmas card – sorry.  Can’t help it very much!

This one uses the new Bells Are Ringing and the bundled Detailed Bells Dies.  Plus the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder and a touch of Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

I started with a Very Vanilla panel that I embossed in the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder – cut it down to size and matted it on Cherry Cobbler card stock for the card front.

Then I took a small piece of Pretty Peacock and Copper Foil paper from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP, matted it on Cherry Cobbler, and adhered it across the card front.

I used the Detailed Bells Dies to cut two solid bells from Pretty Peacock, one from Cherry Cobbler and one from Very Vanilla.  Then I cut three detailed bells from Copper Foil.  I adhered all the detailed die cuts to the solid cuts with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a couple of boughs from the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the two Pretty Peacock bells – the one on the left with Liquid Glue and the top bell with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added the Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler bells to the top of the panel in the same way.

The sentiment, from Bells Are Ringing, is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla, and cut with a die from the Ornate Frames Die set.  I edged the die cut with my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker and tucked it under the bells with Liquid Glue.

I stamped two bows from Bells Are Ringing in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Very Vanilla and colored them with my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.  Then I fussy cut them.  There’s a die in the Detailed Bells Die set – but I wanted a no-border cut so…out came the Paper Snips!

I adhered the bows with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a Pretty Peacock Rhinestone from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack to the middle of that bow and to the sentiment panel.  I added Cherry Cobbler Jewels – from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels – to the Cherry Cobbler bow and the middles of the Copper Foil Detailed Bells.  And the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Bells Are Ringing in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla Mat.  I stamped the large bell outline in Pretty Peaccok and added some “fill-in” images in Pretty Peacock and Cherry Cobbler.  The “ringer” is Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink.  I added a single Pretty Peacock Rhinestone by the sentiment.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla Card Base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Bells Are Ringing bell on the front…

… and I added a little more of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such pretty paper, y’all!  I especially love the designs with the Pretty Peacock as the predominant color – it’s just perfect with the Copper Foil!  The Bells Are Ringing stamp set and bundled Detailed Bells is a super bundle for elegant Christmas or New Year’s cards!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Plaid Pine Trees

Good morning and happy weekend!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned! 🙂

I’m headed down South a piece to a “Stamptember” event!  There’ll be a group of Demo’s from the SE – and some folk from SU! in attendance.  We’re going to stamp (duh!) and eat and probably kibbitz a lot!  I think it’ll be fun!  The downside, though, is that it’s enough of a “piece” there and back that I won’t be able to do a video tonight! 🙁  But…I’ll try to post pics of the event on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page throughout the day as I’m able! 🙂

My card for today is perfect if you’re trying to avoid inky fingers for a minute.  That’s right – no stamp was inked in the making of this card!  I used the wunnermus Wrapped In Plaid DSP, the Pine Tree Punch, a die from the Word Wishes die set and…some 1/2″ Classic Weave Ribbon.  Take a look-see:

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

I started with some Night of Navy and Shaded Spruce-dominant Wrapped in Plaid DSP and matted it on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

I wrapped some Very Vanilla 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim around the panel – using SNAIL and Glue Dots to secure it.  Over the top I added a length of the 1/2″ Classic Weave Ribbon.  I made sure that the “Christmas” would be lined up to match the die cut sentiment.

I popped a Very Vanilla Stitched Shape circle over the top of the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Pine Tree Punch, I cut a Wrapped in Plaid DSP and Cherry Cobbler tree and adhered them onto the circle with Liquid Glue.

With the Word Wishes Die, I cut a Copper Foil and two Cherry Cobbler sentiments (“Merry”) and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the stack with Liquid Glue.

I used a piece of Silver Metallic Thread to tie a snug knot around the 1/2″ Classic Weave Ribbon just to the left of the adhered Stitched Shapes Circle.  I tied a bow with the ribbon and adhered it over the knot with a couple of Glue Dots.

When you tie the knot around the ribbon – it compresses it a smidge – so…the bow looks way more real when you stick it on! 😉

I added a couple of Star Designer Elements and the card front was done!

On the inside, I matted a piece of Very Vanilla on Cherry Cobbler with Liquid Glue and then wrapped another length of 1/2″ Classic Weave Ribbon around the panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a punched out Wrapped in Plaid DSP Pine Tree adhered with Liquid Glue…

…and a little more of the DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Easy peasy and not an inky finger in sight!  I LOVE the Wrapped in Plaid DSP so so much, don’t you?  And the Pine Tree Punch is going to become one of my favorite punches of all time.  Well.  It might already BE my favorite punch of all time!  I hope you like!

The other day I got a super-fun card in the mail.  It’s from one of my team members (and friend!) – and her daughter and some of her cohorts from Florida.

Apparently, the word is out that I sort of like to use a couple three Stampin’ Dimensionals on my cards.

Did you know that??  Had you heard that rumor?!?

Well – these ladies cracked me up – and, I suspect, cracked themselves up, too, while they were concocting it.  Check it out.

Finn loved it, too.

Colored Dimensional covers?!?!  Say….WHAAAAAAT!?!?

Where have these BEEN all my life, Mom!?!?

Stampin’ Up! #ELFIE 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’ve been looking at the adorable #ELFIE stamp set for a minute now – and finally decided it was PAST TIME to get it inky!  So…I did and paired it up with the pretty (and sparkly!) Let It Snow Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch! 🙂

I started with some of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP, matted on Flirty Flamingo for the card front – and for the next layer of the card as well.  All adhered with Liquid Glue!

For the sentiment panel, I used a piece of Whisper White.  Near the bottom, I stamped a sentiment from #ELFIE in Real Red.  On the other corner – there are two presents from the set, stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the presents with my Dark Pool Party and Light Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.

I added snowflakes – from #ELFIE – in Pool Party across the remainder of the panel.  Using my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, I made some of the snowflakes red to mirror the DSP panel.

I matted the panel on Flirty Flamingo and added a length of Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon, securing it with SNAIL and Glue Dots.

I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the cute #ELFIE image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored him with my Stampin’ Blends: Light and Dark Shaded Spruce and Real Red; Dark Pool Party; Light Pineapple Punch; and Ivory.  Then – I fussy cut him!

I popped him onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – added a couple of Red Basic Rhinestone Jewels (his buttons!) – and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Then I surrounded it with more Pool Party snow – touching up some of the flakes with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Flirty Flamingo 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 more snow on the front…

…and more of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila! #ELFIE looks pretty confident, doesn’t he – as he lounges under the Workshop sign, that Santa will be all ready in just a couple of months (wait…WHAT!?!)!  And I love the color combination, inspired by the pretty Let It Snow Specialty DSP.  I hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like a Frosty Snow Front

Good Monday, y’all!  Sorry if “Good Monday” is still an oxymoron for you! 😉

Before we get going – don’t miss out on your chance to earn Double Peppermints, okay?  Today and tomorrow is all that’s left!  JS.

My card today is a frosty one – using the gorgeous and wunnermus Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP and the Snow Front stamp set.  With an assist from the Memories of Home set for some sentiments!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

I started with a Whisper White panel that I embossed in the Woodland Embossing Folder.  Then I matted it on Smoky Slate for the card front.

Next up – the gorgeous Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP – also matted on Smoky Slate and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

To create the art/sentiment, I stamped a sentiment from the Memories Of Home stamp set in Pretty Peacock on a small Whisper White rectangle.  With the images from the Snow Front stamp set – I created my scene!  The cabin is stamped in Crumb Cake.  The snow in front in stamped-off-once Seaside Spray.  I added some mountains/sky in stamped-off-once Balmy Blue.  Finally – in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce, a few trees finished it all off!  Stamping off is a great way to soften an image, don’t you think?

I matted the panel on Smoky Slate, then popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A small bow, tied with the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon is adhered with a Glue Dot – and the front of the card was finished up with a single Pretty Peacock gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack.

On the inside, I stamped a second Memories of Home sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the snowy Snow Front scene – and another Pretty Peacock gem! – in the corner.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Smoky Slate mat and into my Balmy Blue card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Snow Front scene on the front…

…and another piece of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s hard not to love that Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP, isn’t it?  And I think the Snow Front stamp set – which is an image-only set! – is a wonderful jumping-off point for lots of winter projects.  Finally, since we needed a good sentiment…Memories of Home just felt…perfect!   I hope you like!

I mentioned that we (Wayne, Finn and I), worked on Shares on Saturday.

Wayne helped and Finn “helped”.  Please notice the distinction!

But, in the end…everything was packed and tucked into a few of my perfectly sized Thirty One Large Utility Totes – ready to go to the PO today.

…and Wayne and the Man….enjoyed a well-deserved break!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty and Peaceful Boughs

Good morning, my friends!  Hope your weekend is going wonderfully!! 🙂

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 – but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis!

I pulled out the so beautiful Nature’s Beauty stamp set and added a couple of Peaceful Boughs sentiments and Beautiful Boughs pine boughs to make this one!  Take a look-see:

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

I started with a Crumb Cake panel and stamped the bough image from Peaceful Boughs in Crumb Cake all over it – then matted it on Early Espresso for the card front.

I cut the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die in Early Espresso and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

On a second piece of Crumb Cake, I stamped the deer image from Nature’s Beauty in Early Espresso.  Around her I added snow from the Peaceful Boughs set in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.  I also added some winter grasses from Nature’s Beauty in Crumb Cake.  Then I cut her out with the same size Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I used the Beautiful Boughs Die set to cut out some Shaded Spruce and Vellum card stock boughs, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Boughs in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake and cut it with the label die in the Beautiful Boughs Die set – and popped it over the boughs with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut two solid pine cones from Crumb Cake and two detailed pine cones from Early Espresso and adhered them together.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere them to the card front.

I tied a small bow from Real Red 1/8″ Curly Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  A Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel on the sentiment banner finished off the card front!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp a second sentiment from Peaceful Boughs in Early Espresso on a Crumb Cake panel.  Over the top – in stamped off TWICE Crumb Cake, I added the deer and pine boughs image.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Nature’s Beauty scene on the front in Crumb Cake…

..and I added more of the Peaceful Boughs pines to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Oh my, y’all – I do LOVE the images in the Nature’s Beauty stamp set – that deer looks just like the mama’s that hang out around our place!  And Peaceful Boughs…well – that bundle is high atop my “Please SU! – PLEASE….carry this over!!” list!  I hope you like – no LOVE! – this card and these goodies!

Stampin’ Up! Joy of Giving Tags and The 2019 Holiday Kits!

Good Friday, y’all!  The week has gone again and the weekend is upon us!

I’m expecting my 2019 Holiday Shares order to arrive today so I’ll spend the weekend cutting and chopping – all things being equal it all ought to go out on Monday.  Unless I messed something up in my order – which I’m not going to say has never happened, cuz it totally has! Fingers crossed, y’all!! 😉

So – one of the cool things – well THREE cool things, really! – in the 2019 Holiday Catalog are some amazing kits!  We’ve got the Joy of Giving Tag Kit, the Christmas Countdown Project Kit and the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley!

Yesterday I sat down and spent about an hour with the awesome Joy Of Giving Tag Kit – and at the end, I had thirty (yep – you read that right…THIRTY!) wonderful gift tags!  Take a look-see:

The first thing you see when you open the shipping box is…

No – it didn’t come with the ribbon – I quick wrapped mine with some new Basic Black 3/8″ Scalloped Edge – just to show you the possibilities! How pretty is that?  Perfect for gift giving just like this.

When you open it up – it’s got EVERYTHING.  This is an All-Inclusive kit – so it’s got a Poppy Parade Ink Spot, Glue Dots and Dimensionals, Linen Thread and even an acrylic block.  All for just $35.  Sounds like the PERFECT gift to me, y’all!!

You create ten tags each of three different designs….

When you’re done – you’ll still have the cool stamp set in your tool box to make more tags and cards!

I really love this kit, y’all!  And think I may just have to get another one for myself – and a few for birthday gifts! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! gave us some videos about the kits in the 2019 Holiday Catalog – check them out!

First up – the Joy of Giving Tag Kit!

Then there’s the Christmas Countdown Kit.  This one is a “Project Kit” – which means you’ll need to purchase the stamp set (of the same name!) separately, and also provide Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, and Mossy Meadow Classic Ink, SNAIL and Dimensionals!

Check out this video about the Christmas Countdown Project Kit!

I’ve seen folks who’ve done Halloween on the other side of the drawers!  TWO Holidays – ONE countdown calender!

Finally – while more of a Product Medley than purely a kit – there’s the amazing Most Wonderful Time set.

And here’s a quick video about this amazing medley!

Et Voila!  There it is, the whole….wait for it…KIT and kaboodle!  I’ve added all these to my tool chest and hope you will, too!  The Joy of Giving Tag Kit is wonderful and perfect for the beginner or seasoned crafter – so…if you GIVE gifts and need some wonderful handmade tags or you’ve got some crafty folks on your gift-giving list, I highly recommend it!  I hope you like!

As Larry the Cable guys would (not) say….KIT ‘er done!

LOL

Stampin’ Up! Hammered Metal So Many Stars Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your long weekend is going well – guess what??  Tomorrow is a HOLIDAY!!  Whoo-hoo!  Whatever your plans – getting out-and-about or just….RESTING!…enjoy them!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your 3-Day weekend with me!  If not – but you’d like to watch the Memorex version, here ’tis on YouTube!

I pulled out the fantabulous new So Many Stars stamp set and bundled Stitched Stars Dies, the Itty Bitty Christmas set and the new Hammered Metal 3D Folder to make a 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek for you.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Fab Friday this week!

I started by embossing a Crumb Cake card stock panel in the new Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (which will be available in the catalog on Wednesday, 4 Sept!).  Then I brushed the edges of the panel with the new Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink Pad.  I went over the top of that with the Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink Pad.  Then I matted the panel on Cherry Cobbler.

I used SNAIL to adhere two lengths of new Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Striped Ribbon across the panel.

With the Stitched Stars Dies – I cut a bunch of stars and flourishes from Wrapped In Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP, Gold Glimmer Paper and Shaded Spruce card stock.

Using my Simply Scored tool, I scored the large plaid star and gently creased the score lines to create a 3-D star.

I used Liquid Glue on the various stars to adhere some together in stacks – and then adhered them to the card front.  The large plaid star is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped an Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment (also new in the 2019 Holiday Catalog) in Cherry Cobbler on a Crumb Cake strip.  Then I “dipped” each edge of the strip with the Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink Pad and popped it onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Linen Thread double-loop bow with a couple of Glue Dots and then popped on three Star Designer Elements – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the So Many Stars set in Cherry Cobbler on a Very Vanilla panel.  Around and over it, I stamped the scattered stars image from the same set in Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink.  I also added a couple of the larger stars in the Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the So Many Stars stars in Copper and Gold on the front…

…and I added more of the Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Itty Bitty Christmas and So Many Stars!  What a great complement to each other!  And, of course, no one can deny the spectacular-ness of the Wrapped In Plaid 6″ x 6″ DSP!  You can get it all in only 3 more days – the 4th will be here before you know it! 🙂 I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Cerah – my older pony – has to wear…

…a grazing muzzle when she’s out during the day.  It’s a useful tool – helps her to not eat her body weight in grass every day.  Which is a very good thing for a Haflinger!

SHE hates the muzzle.  As one might easily imagine!

Finn – on the other hand is…fascinated by it.

He sniffs it – licks the outside – sticks his head in it…and licks the inside…

 

…and is quite disappointed when I am finally able to pull it away from him to hang it up for the night!

These are the things that just…make me wonder….why?  Why, Finn…what could the attraction possibly be?!?

As has become my tradition, I’ve gathered up some goodies from the new Suites (and beyond!) in the 2019 Holiday Catalog that coordinate perfectly with each other and will get you well on the way to making great cards and projects!

When you order them, you’ll save around 15-20% off ordering everything yourself!  And every Special Bundle includes a FREE GIFT! 🙂  Please note – these bundles are only available until 15 Sept – so…get them while you can!

Head on over to my Ordering Page to see what you’ll get in each bundle (I’ve got PICTURES!!) and then get your order placed!

Finn’s birth mom sent me a picture yesterday.

There’s much cuteness, so…figured I’d share it.

Right??

He’s a little bigger now, but still totes-adorbs….just now he’s Man-Cute instead of Baby-Cute. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Tidings All Around Wreaths 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 went back to the Toile Tidings Suite for this Sneak Peek today – this time…using the Tidings All-Around stamp set and bundled All Around Wreath Dies!  Plus some of that wunnermusly gorgeous Toile Tidings DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch – you can see I turned it on its side! (Lay your left ear on your left shoulder – you’ll see it!)

I started with one of the pretty Garden Green paper from the Toile Tidings DSP, matting it on Soft Suede for the card front.  Next up is a piece of Very Vanilla that I embossed in the new Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder (coming in the 2019 Holiday Catalog), matted it on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a short length of 5/8″ Burlap Trim to the embossed panel.

Then I used the more intricate wreath die in the All Around Wreath Die set to cut a Garden Green and a Vellum Card Stock wreath.  I used a few Glue Dots to adhere the Vellum wreath to the Garden Green Wreath.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the wreath onto the embossed panel.

I cut two Soft Suede branches and two Garden Green boughs –  both in the All Around Wreath Die set – and used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the top of the wreath.

Three little Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots at the top – and a Burlap Ribbon bow adhered with a Glue Dot – finished off the wreath.

I stamped the Toile Tidings sentiment in Real Red on Very Vanilla and used a Stitched Rectangles Die to cut it out.  It was too long – so…I ran it half-way thru my Die Cutting Machine, then moved the die and ran it half way thru from the other direction.  That let me make a custom-sized Stitched Rectangle!

I popped the sentiment onto the wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment in Real Red on Very Vanilla, then added the large wreath image in Garden Green.  I added some Real Red berries, too!

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the Tidings All-Around wreath in Garden Green and Real Red on the front…

…and more of the Garden Green Toile Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think this is one of my favorite Suites – and this Tidings All-Around stamp set, with its bundled All Around Wreath Dies – is certainly a showcase (and show STOPPER) piece of the suite!  I hope you like!

And – are you getting ready?!?  There’s less than a WEEK before you can order from the amaze-balls new 2019 Holiday Catalog! 😉
