Good Monday morning! I hope your weekend was great and that you got a lot of your “to-do” lists done. Or..NOT – if that was your plan to start with!
We crashed HARD – again! – last night – Saturday was a long day and Sunday, too, for that matter! And that included the Man! He finally found his lick and decided he doesn’t mind traveling and hotels. Especially ones with cool tile floors and a blower thing that he can stand right in front of and have cold air blast his face! He even decided he was okay with the elevator! He IS tired – finally! On Saturday, he was up and down every time we slowed down – for much of the ride to Huntsville. On Sunday, he was sacked out and sound asleep in the car within 10 minutes of hitting the road! LOL
My card today features a bunny. Under a Willow Tree. This little bunya is saying howdy with one of the cool Go To Greetings sentiments! Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
The Best Butterfly Bundle was not at the top of my list when I first saw the catalog. I mean – I thought it was cute, no doubt. But…maybe…TOO cute??! I finally decided to give it a chance – along with the other goodies in the Suite. And boy am I glad I did cuz it is SO much fun to play with! And – I also pulled out the newest goodie I’ve been so excited to use…the new Deckled Rectangle Dies!! Take a look-see:

Happy Friday, y’all! We’re on the cusp of another weekend and…Mother’s Day! Hope you did better than I did this year – I am fairly certain that the gift I sent will NOT be there in time. I’d blame the Post Office (that’s pretty easy!) but…since I didn’t mail it until Wednesday…it’s all on me! Hopefully she’ll give me a pass and will like it anyway! 🤦♀️
My card today reminds me of Maui. When we were there last year, we went on a catamaran to go snorkeling. On the way back to the marina – they shut off the engines and we went under sail for a while. It. Was. Amazing. And I want to do it again right now!! Since that’s not going to happen any time soon – this fun fold card from the Let’s Set Sail bundle with a little “sunset” and “ocean” courtesy of the Hues of Happiness DSP will be the next best thing!

Good morning, y’all! Hope your weekend is going well! We had a nice time with our friends yesterday before my YouTube video (we ALMOST didn’t get back in time for the video – I looked at my watch and…we had 20 min to get home! 😳😳). And then on the way, there was a little dog in the road – and he was standing right in front of the van – would NOT move. So…naturally, we had to pick him up. After a few minutes we were able to find his family – he’d gone walk-about – and I (sort of reluctantly, I admit – he was VERY cute and VERY sweet!) handed him over. And we beat feet (or tires?) back to the house. I quite literally walked in the door with 30 sec to start time! Yikes!
The card I made for you uses a sweet little set – sort of a flyover – it took me a minute to get it, myself! – called the Cactus Cuties bundle. I also pulled out the retiring-soon-and-on-sale-now-for-20%-off! Macrame 3D Embossing Folder. And you MIGHT see a brand new goody, too! Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy Friday! We’re headed into the weekend – with good weather on the horizon, my Stampin’ Up! OnTour Event tomorrow and plantlings waiting to be planted! AND – I placed my Pre-Order from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog this morning and am SOOO excited to get my new goodies! Life is feeling pretty darned bright and cheerful right now! 🎉🎉🎉
And, speaking of bright & cheerful, check out this fun card – made to send to a good friend! – featuring the Bragworthy sentiment set and some pretty Flowering Fields DSP. And – the Ornate Frames die set (retiring – on sale now – and only available while supplies last in the Last Chance sale!) brings some cool “architectural interest) on the front. Take a look-see:

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! In addition to being Hawwmp Day – it is ALSO National Do a Grouch a Favor Day.
Yes. That’s a thing.
So…maybe we should all think of someone who is always a little grumpy – and send them a card! What do you think? Know anyone who could use a smile today? Let’s turn those grumpy frowns upside down!
And…maybe THIS card would be perfect! The On the Horizon stamp set – with the bundled Horizon Dies – combined with the gorgeous New Horizons DSP – creates a wonderful – suitable for a guy or a gal – card. Take a look-see:
Good morning and welcome to Weekend-Eve! Know what three weeks from TODAY is??
Did you guess….Christmas Eve?? See the connection? “WEEKEND-eve”….”CHRISTMAS-eve”?? 😉
You’re welcome for the update!
Now. Since we’re getting close to The Big Day – I have a totally NON-Christmas card for you! This one is a CASE of a really pretty card in the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. It uses the Eden Garden Bundle (available right now!) and the Heart & Home DSP (coming on 4 Jan!). Take a look-see:

Happy Monday (please excuse the oxymoron!). Hope that the week ahead looks good! We’ve got nice – if a little warm! – weather ahead so that’s good! We’ve been able to open the windows at night – which is lovely. And the leaves are starting to change – the dogwood next to the garage is in full Fall regalia!
My card today is another little sneaky peek at the new Eden’s Garden bundle and Ever Eden Specialty DSP – which will be available to you SOON (like….2 Nov 21!). I’ve also used one of my favorite things – the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder. Take a look-see:

I don’t know about y’all – well, I do, but….that’s such a great way to start, right?!? 😂 – but I LOVE the Beauty of Tomorrow Suite in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog! So…I saw a color challenge that was perfect for the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP and decided to start from there and use more goodies from the suite – like the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set, Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack and the Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon. Take a look-see:

Well – good morning, y’all! Did you have a good weekend? Mine was busy – and fun! After Backstage on Friday and Saturday, we had our great Check Out The Krew FB event and it was great! If you were able to join us – I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! If you couldn’t watch – there’s a lot of good info still on the page – and…maybe even some prize patrols still open! 😉 And – I hope you are – or will be! – thinking about taking advantage of the great opportunity to join Stampin’ Up! with our team! We’d love to have you in our Stampin’ Up! family!
The card I made for you today is probably going to make you say….Mary, is that YOUR card?! 😳 It even surprised me! I used the pretty Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP to make a….clean-and-simple, masculine!…card! Gorgeous Leaves and its bundled Intricate Leaves die set paired with a simple sentiment from the Reflected in Nature stamp set. Take a look-see:
