Stampin’ Up! Happiness Surrounds Your Day!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned.

I have a plane flight planned.  Which – is NOT fun.  Not in any way that you slice it.  Tomorrow’ll be a 12 hour day to get back to Atlanta.  Bleh bleh bleh.  But we’ve had a great visit and gotten done all the things we needed to do while I was here.  So – bonus!

But – expectation management:  I will NOT be doing a Facebook live tomorrow – so sorry!  I don’t even land in Atlanta until a little after 5, so…just can’t do it, y’all!  I’ll be back next weekend, I promise!!

Let’s not think about that unpleasantness right now, though, shall we?  Instead, let’s take a look at a card that comes from the second stamp set in the upcoming Snowflake Showcase (available 1 Nov – 30 Nov 18).  This is the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and…it gives a completely different look from the Snow Is Glistening set I used yesterday.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Just a Note to Wish You Well

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going swimmingly!

WE will not be swimming – cuz of how it’s colder than a well-digger’s lunch bucket here (that’s REALLY cold in case you’re unfamiliar with the analogy!).

So – I’ve come to the sad realization that I just don’t have enough internet speed/bandwidth here to do a FB Live – so…we’re going to have to skip that for today.  I’ll try to be back next week, though!

I made a simple little card using the Wishing You Well stamp set and some pumpkins from the Toil & Trouble DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Home Again to Finn!

Hey guys!  First post back in Atlanta – and it’s a “no card – no sneak peek” post, so sorry.   And it’s a double-whammy of bad news – alas, no video tonight, either.  My craft spot is just as bad as I remembered and I just can’t get it together for a video.  I’ll do better next week, I promise! 🙁

Man – is it nice to be home!  Had a great flight – the upgrade to First Class was worth every single dime!  Watched Book Club – new-ish movie with Diane Keaton, Mary Steenbergen, Candace Bergen and Jane Fonda.  Have you seen it??  I really enjoyed it – fun plot, good dialogue.  And Don Johnson.  And Andy Garcia.  Neither are hard on the eyes and they did a good job.  It needs to go on your need-to-see list!

Wayne and Finn picked me up as usual – and the ride home was…Finn-centric (also as usual!).

I was finally able to get one decent picture – Smile, Finn!

Apparently, although he’s been getting bones and pets from his Dad, they don’t stack up to Mom-Loves!

Nor does his Dad wear a lot of lotion.

And Finn LOVES him some lotion!

After he stopped just being loved on – he spent the rest of the ride home licking every reachable spot he could find – cuz I DO use lotion! 😉

Also – I’m sure he just LOOOOOOVES me! 😉

He did finally settle back to his normal Finn position in the van…

It was lovely to see all the green – a person does get sort of “grass/green/tree” starved in the desert of California!

Once we got the suitcase inside and in the bedroom (please notice I did NOT say unpacked!)…I was treated to an old favorite…

Yes indeed.  Very very nice to be home!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a card – pinky swear! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Festive Farmhouse Country Home Sneak Peek

Good Monday, my peeps!  And welcome to the beginning of the end of Mary’s time in SoCal!  Just two weeks left and only a couple of days of the hard stuff.  Looking forward to my alarm not going off at 4am on Wednesday!  Might even do something crazy and not get to work at 7….might slow-roll-in around 8!

gasp…. 🙂

So my card today is a study in sneak peeks of the new 2018 Holiday Catalog (okay – yea – been doing that for a minute, I know!).  This one uses some gorgeous new Festive Farmhouse DSP and a great sentiment from the Country Home stamp set.  These are both available to customers on 5 Sept (and you could also get a sample of the paper in one of my DSP or I Want It All catalog shares!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Pressed Flowers Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, my peeps!  Hope your weekend is shaping up to be fun!  It’s Cinco de Mayo AND Derby Day!  Guess you’ll need to put some guacamole on your Hot Brown, huh??  And wash it all down with a Mint Jule-e-rita! 🙂

I feel a little bad bringing you a card that you can’t really make yet – unless you’re a demonstrator and you snapped these up in your pre-order!  But – I did it anyway!  My box came today – don’t worry, I’ll show you all the goodies on Sunday evening – and I just had to pull out a couple of things I’d really been waiting for!  One – the Abstract Impressions bundle…and the coordinating (and seriously gorgeous!!) Garden Impressions DSP.  And the second is the Pressed Flowers Host-Exclusive stamp set.  Take a look-see:
