Stampin’ Up! Waterfront in Every Season!

Good morning!  From Atlanta!  Whoo-hoo!  Made it home in good time – pretty easy all the way around.  Watched a movie and did a few blog posts on the ride home!

Arrived to a shocking re-introduction to humidity!  Yikes!  And a dog who can’t hold his licker! 😉

My card for you today is made with the lovely In Every Season stamp set – an image-only set with 12 wonderful flowers – one for every month!  So I used that and a couple of sentiments from the Waterfront set.  I put it all on top of some soft Tea Room Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Promenade on Linen and a Climbing Vine

Good Friday, my peeps!

Well.  It’s hard to believe but…the day has finally arrived.  In some ways it seems like yesterday that I was sitting in the ER with hives.

And in others, it feels like forever that I’ve been out here and waiting for this day!

No matter the perspective, the day has arrived!  This afternoon I head to LA and will fly home tomorrow.  Then there’ll be a whirlwind 24 hours to get everything ready to go.  I know Wayne’s been getting the place ready for us to be gone.  We’ll just need to pack.  And gather Finny’s things for his time at camp….and TAKE him to camp.  I so hope he has a wonderful time.  I’ll have the day to love him up – when we get home again I’ll have to leave before he comes back.

I’m trying to focus on the good part of the trip – and not on the leaving-my-little-man part.  <<insert brave-face emoticon here>> I know he’ll be fine.  And I’ll be fine.

It’s just the doing that’s hard!

But – in about 3 days – we’ll be on the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island on the first part of our trip.  So…Whoo-hooo!!!

These past few days have been a jumble of working and card making.  I made a bunch of cards to share with you while we’re gone – and, of course, there’ll be days when I share pictures of the ship and the glaciers and whales and eagles….and pillow-gifts (without any illegal sneak-peeks of the new Holiday Catalog!).  So – I hope you’re looking forward to sharing the adventure with us!

Today’s card is a soft little number that features the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and bundled Beautiful Layers Thinlits.  I also used my new fave Subtle Dynamic TIEF and the Climbing Vine TIEF.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes for the Crazy Crafter’s Blog Hop!

Hey, y’all!  It’s way later on a Saturday (or any day, for that matter!) than you’re used to seeing me, but…I was tickled (and…amazed!!) to be invited by my friend Kylie Bertucci to be the guest on the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop!

Of course I said of course!! 🙂

For these hops, everyone who plays along CASEs a card they find on my blog.  Including me!  So – I went thru some past posts and found one that really appealed to me.  I loved the DSP and stamped flowers and the layout!

And then I CASE’d it with current goodies!  The centerpiece is the new Dandelion Wishes stamp set and some pretty Garden Impressions DSP.  Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Tuesday so time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge for you to play along with!  This week it’s all about the fun-fold!

One of my favorite fun-folds is the Easel Card.  I like it cuz it’s so easy to make that it’s sort of ridiculous – but the wow-factor is high!  For this one, I jumped both feet right back into my wheelhouse and went with the Nature’s Poem DSP and the Rooted in Nature bundle, which includes the Nature’s Roots Framelits.  Take a look-see:
