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!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Incentive Trip Cruising the Greek Isles and a 2019 Holiday Sneak Peak!

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!  Are you impressed that I’m able to track hawmp day???  Or…ANY day at all??!

I sure am!  Between the time zone differences and changes – and the almost total lack of my “normal” day-triggers…I’m amazed that I know if it’s Christmas or Tuesday!

Speaking of Christmas – yesterday before our shore excursion to Santorini, we did some make-and-takes using the new Most Wonderful Time stamp set and Product Medley.

Remember that one?

   

Stampin’ Up! pretty much took over the Tides dining room.  They’re going to be vaccuming up Dimensional covers for a long time! 🙂

We all used part of our Product Medleys and our new stamp sets and made three fun and quick Christmas cards.

On the way out to get ready for our time in Santoriini, we ran into Sara and Shawn Douglas and yes…I got a picture with them and with Amy!

Then, it was time to hit the tenders (not the spicy chicken ones – the FLOATING ones!) and make our way to shore!

We gathered in the theater and then hit the boats!

First stop – the Akrotiri Ruins!  This is an archaeological site dating back 3600 years!  It’s really quite amazing – they built a city with buildings 3 – 4 stories tall.  With rain gutters and water control systems.  With toilets!  And centers of commerce.  Here are just a few pictures – I’ll post the rest of them over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page in the next few days!

Apparently, in all the excavation that has taken place, they’ve found no bones at all – neither human nor animal.  Which means they got everytone out before the volcano did its thing!

Our guide was a Greek archaeologist who really knew his stuff – and had a great way of sharing it with us!  The only issue for me was that he sounded a lot like the father in the My Big Fat Greek Wedding movies – so I kept expecting him to tell me how the ancient Greeks used Windex for everything! LOL!

When we were done with the ruins, we rode over to Oia (pronounced Eee-uh).  It’s the home of the most-likely-to-be-found-in-a-picture of Santorini cathedral.  You’ll recognize it!

And this is the home of the iconic white-washed homes, apartments and hotels seen perched on the cliffs of the caldera.

Oh.  And gelato!  We found a wonderful little taverna with pizza and gelato.  I totally expected the cast of Mamma Mia to pop out at any moment!

We wound up in Fira – the capitol of Santorini and rode the tram down to the tenders.  There’s home-sweet-home on the right!

We got ourselves to Wayne’s and my cabin – which is on the back and perfectly positioned to see the famous Santorini sunset.  We couldn’t have positioned the ship better ourselves!

Not long after sunset, the Captain spun the ship around and we headed out of the caldera on our way to our next stop!

Tomorrow (well….today!) – Mykonos!! 🙂

I’ll get all the pictures uploaded on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page as quick as my internet-at-sea will allow!

Hope you’re enjoying the virtual travel!!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship and Birch Birthday!

Good morning!  It’s Sunday at…some time?…in Rome.  I think when you get this post, it’ll be around 1400 in the afternoon (which is totally the Department of Redundancy Department since 1400 can ONLY be in the afternoon which is why the 24-hour clock is so darned handy!).

And – we’ll probably be on the ship or close to it!

O. M.  G!  It’s finally here!  Cruising again!!  I got a real taste for being on the water (in a big ship with a comfy cabin and lots of good food!!) on the Alaska cruise last summer – and I’m very grateful to be getting a chance to do it again!!

I’ll post ship pictures tomorrow – and maybe to my FB page today – so…be watching!

My Birthday card today uses the spectacular, and also gorgeous, Beautiful Friendship and Birch background stamp sets.  Take a look-see!

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge (I turned it on it’s side…)

I started by using my Stamparatus to stamp the Birch image in Sahara Sand on a panel of Whisper White.  Then I cut it down to card-front size and matted it on Seaside Spray using Liquid Glue.

I adhered a strip of the linen-look Pressed Petals Specialty DSP across the card front with Liquid Glue – then used SNAIL and Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the hydrangea image from Beautiful Friendship twice in Seaside Spray.  Then I added some Rococo Rose roses, Old Olive leaves – some full strength and some stamped-without-reinking – and some Highland Heather lilacs.

I also added the pretty sentiment in Old Olive.

I matted the panel on Seaside Spray and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped two more Rococo Rose roses and a couple of Old Olive leaves on Whisper White and fussy cut them.  The leaves and one of the roses is adhered with Liquid Glue – and I popped the second rose next to the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a double-loop bow in Linen Thread and a Purple Posy 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a whole cottage garden of flowers from Beautiful Friendship in Rococo Rose, Highland Heather and Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and into my Rococo Rose card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few (okay – a lot!) more flowers on the front..

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

Et Voila!  Beautiful Friendship lets you garden-on-paper!  No rain or weeding required!  And – the cottage-garden look you can create is just gorgeous!  I hope you like!

Now – off the the Lido Deck! 😉

P.S  Saturday was a good day in Rome – will post more about it later – but…we only ate gelato ONCE.  We had tiramisu, too.  But…it was so tiny….  We went to a spot that is apparently the #1 Tiramisu in Rome.  Called Two Sizes. We posited that there were two doors – a narrow one to go IN and a much WIDER one to go OUT.  But – in fact it was that they had Tiramisu – in a variety of flavors (who knew?!?) – in…yes.  Two Sizes.  I chose small. 😉
