Stampin’ Up! Forever Flourishing Fern Any Occasion Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy weekend-eve!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend. I honestly don’t know WHAT is on our playlist so…I’m just going to play it by ear! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today is another CASE (I know – it’s like I’ve not had an original thought in my head all week!! 😉 ) – this one from my friend and upline Amy Koenders!  Her shoebox swap card from the retreat last weekend – using the Brightest Beauty bundle – really inspired me for this one – but I used the Forever Fern stamp set and coordinating Forever Flourishing Die set!  And…the cool a la carte die set called Fabulous Frames.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Gingham Cottage Wreaths Side Fold Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning good morning!  It’s the day after the 4th and I hope you and your critters had a fun and non-scary evening!  We spent the day getting provisions for the girls – well, putting provisions on a Rain Check!! – and buying a few garden fence panels to take care of a little problem we have at the fountain by the barn.  And two more perennials (WAYNE’S idea – not mine!!).  So…a good quiet day!

I’ve got one of my VERY favorite fun folds for you today – the venerable side-fold.  It doesn’t have an extra easel.  It’s not an upside down and sideways book card with a twist.  Just a good, solid side-fold card!  And – it really lets the new Cottage Wreaths bundle and coordinating Gingham Cottage DSP shine.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Under a Willow Tree

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:

Stampin’ Up! Best Butterfly Kisses for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

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:

Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Best Day Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

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!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Cactus Cuties Hello with Video Tutorial

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:

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  In addition to being Hawwmp Day – it is ALSO National Do a Grouch a Favor Day.

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!
