Stampin’ Up! Share a Well Said Ride!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  The week is progressing – too fast for once – to the weekend.  Before I know it I’ll be headed to the airport to pick up the rental car and bringing it home to pack!  The only real question is whether my list of gotta-get-dones will be got-done by then! 😉

A little admin-y stuff first…I’ve got new info below about some die sets that are in danger of going “not orderable” due to the high demand we’ve experienced.  Take a look and if something you were wanting is on the list…hop to it!  I don’t think they’ll last long…

Okay – My card today is a super easy fun-fold that I made for a friend.  I used some Share What You Love Specialty DSP and the wonderful Let It Ride and Well Said stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Painted Strong & Beautiful Seasons

Good morning, y’all!  Hope the weekend is proceeding apace for you!

We’re off to take the Man to a doggy play date at Puppy Tubs, then make the trek north so I can get a haircut (in preparation for my trip that leaves a WEEK FROM TODAY – bleh!) and hit Costco.  Then tomorrow – after waking up an hour earlier than my clock says it is…think that one thru – I’ll head north again to our Inkin’ Krew meeting!! Whooo-hooo!  Can’t wait!

My card today is one for providing encouragement or cheering on a friend in a new endeavor.  And I used sentiments from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set with some pretty flowers and foliage from the Painted Seasons set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Part of My Painted Season Story

Happy Tuesday, guys!  Hope your week is progressing nicely!  We’re having a day or two of really gorgeous weather – the rain is done for a minute and we’re hitting the 60’s.  The weather is cray cray this year!

For today, I made a cheerful little card with a couple of old faves and a few new winners!  Painted Seasons – the stamp set AND the designer paper – plays a strong supporting role to the Part of My Story sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Country Flowing Fountain

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Well – last night, at the end of a long and turbulent week, Wayne and I went to dinner with our friends in what has become a routine for us.  Not all routines are something to be eagerly anticipated – but this one…definitely is.  It’s a nice thing to look forward to each weekend!

Also – did you know that yesterday was – apparently – National Margarita Day?  I didn’t until my friend told me – which helped make the dinner decision easier.  Mexican it was.

But – they weren’t doing ANYthing special for National Margarita Day.

Mexican.  Food.  Restaurant.  National Margarita Day.  Hola?!?

Pero….Nada.

Huh.

Not saying this kept me from having the drink-of-the-day.  Cuz I totally did!

Now – my ramblings about my dinner aside, we’ve also got a card – which is, in fact, why you’re here, right? 😉

It’s a clean-and-simple little number, that I made with a sentiment from the Flowing Fountain stamp set with an assist from the new Country Floral Dynamic TIEF and some beautiful Painted Seasons DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Be Mine & We’ll Be So Hoppy Together!

One of my favorite things about where I live is the sheer volume of the frog song we get to hear every night.  Folks – they do NOT say ribbit!!  They speak about a 100 different frog languages and they let loose with joyful abandon every night.  I so look forward to the time of year we can sleep with the windows open so I can listen to them as I fall asleep.

Please do not take this to mean that I have, have had or will ever have a pet frog…Want to pick up and pet a frog…Want to touch a frog in any way.  I just like having them around so I can enjoy their musical talents! 😉

One of the most fun stamp sets in the first Sale-A-Bration release is, without a doubt, the So Hoppy Together set.

Those little frogs – who doesn’t love them!?

Well, I used that set – with the new Hop Around Framelits (which you’re going to be able to get on 1 March!) – and a little bit of Be Mine Stitched Framelits and…well.  Take a look-see:
