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:
Happy Happy HAWWWWWMP Day, my friends! Hope the week is going well for y’all. Today is the day that it’s supposed to get all the way up to 67 degrees here. C’mon WARMTH!! 🙂
Today, in lieu of a card, I decided to give away a Paper Pumpkin Kit!
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:

In case you’ve missed it these past couple of days, here’s a fun little video that will give you some ideas for your space!
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!
Well. Here we are – Saturday. THE Saturday. If I’ve done what I set out to do, then by the time you read this, I should be on the other side of Atlanta on my way to Maryland! We got everything packed up last night and then…it was time at the hiney-crack-of-way-too-early this morning!
I always get a rental car for these kinds of business trips…
Happy Friday, y’all! I’m in chicken-with-my-head-cut-off mode today. At some point I have to stop making cards and start PACKING! No matter how hard I squeeze my eyes shut and shake my head back and forth and pound my fists, tomorrow IS going to come and I WILL have to get in my car and drive down the driveway. With or withOUT my stuff!
Since I prefer WITH – time to get on the stick, Mare! 😉
I have found that talking to myself doesn’t actually do any good. But what the heck!
My card today is super simple! It’s not exactly what I started out to make – that effort just didn’t work for me. I didn’t like it – so I changed it! But I DID stick with my Happiness Blooms DSP and the Thank You Thinlits Die, with an assist from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set and Country Floral Dynamic TIEF. Take a look-see:
