Stampin’ Up! Well Said, Botanic Butterfly, Well Said!

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day – from…Maryland!

Not Mary. Land.

That would be like…Wayne’s World.

This is Maryland.  As in Baltimore!

And it’s cold as a well-digger’s bucket here – but, thankfully, no snow.  Oh – there are some piles here and there leftover from the last storm – but the streets are clear and dry.

Which is excellent – cuz I am non-current (by a LONG ways!) on snow and ice driving.  And not really interested in renewing that ticket!

So – I have a spring-ish card for you today and it’s a fun one.  Butterflies everywhere!  Courtesy of the FREE Botanical Butterfly DSP in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Plus a little Grapefruit Grove Foil – ALSO from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  And my sentiments are from the Well Said Bundle in the Occasions Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Here Comes the Sun Let it Ride!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’ve got some fun plans for the weekend.  We’re going to be cutting.  And chopping.

Yes, that’s right – all my Shares goodies arrived yesterday!  We got the tree and wreaths down and cleaned the house (thank God -and Wayne! – it was giving me panic knots in the my throat!).  And now – today and tomorrow are all about making big paper into smaller paper and long ribbons into shorter!  If you ordered a share – I’m hoping to get them in the mail on Monday or Tuesday! 🙂

 My Mom asked me for a card for a friend of hers who’s going thru a rough time right now – and wanted woodsy/mountainy.  Along with my shares goodies…I MIGHT have ordered a FEW more products from the new catalog – and I’ve used them today to make her card.  So…I actually used elements from both the Let It Ride stamp set and the Host set called Here Comes the Sun.  And…I also pulled in the Crackle Paint Background stamp to really send it over the top!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lattice Part of My Story Sneak Peek!

Happy Happy 2019!!  Whoo-hooo!!

I hope y’all had a safe and happy New Year’s Eve – ours was a quiet one – as always.  Watching sappy movies and listening to the firecrackers from around the area.

And today, we’re getting ready to eat black-eyed peas and greens – health and wealth! – for the New Year.

No one needs to tell me about bugs in the peas, okay?  I candled every single pea and there’s not a one to be seen! 😉

So – for the first card of the New Year – I’ve got another Sneak Peek – this time from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  One of the pretty stamp sets you’ll be able to pick for FREE with a $50 purchase is the Lovely Lattice set – which is a beautiful floral set.  And, there’s a second set, called Part of My Story, which is all sentiments.  What a perfect pairing!  Take a look-see:
