Stampin’ Up! Reasons to Smile & Design A Daydream Card for a Friend

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! Wisteria Wishes Triple Time Card

Good morning again!  Just a reminder – this is the last day to take advantage of my Special Bundles from the 2022-2024 Annual Catalog – don’t miss out on an opportunity to save some money and add to your card-making stash!

My Zoom the Craftroom session was really fun yesterday – I had a few team members on – Carol Buckalew (from Inky Bee Stampers) and Barb Fadel – and long-time customer Sharon Harris.  We got to talking about the Triple Time Technique – yet another team member has done a few in the last week (Terry Lynn Bright – from TL’s BrightSpot).  It’s one of my fave techniques – that I haven’t done for a while – so…we decided to make a card together!

I pulled out the Wisteria Wishes stamp set and a little cardstock – set up my camera – and away we went!  Take a look-see at what we created!

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:
