Good morning good morning!! How goes your week so far? We had rain yesterday – a LOT, actually! – so….we’ve got God watering the garden for a minute, so…that’s cool! I’m sure we’ll be back to “real” summer soon!
My card today uses a new bundle that is so ridiculously stinkin’ cute that….you need to get it ordered RIGHT NOW if you haven’t already! It’s the Elephant Parade Bundle – and…well. Take a look-see:

Good Monday morning, y’all! Did you have a good weekend? It was a hot booger here – but the weather cooperated and we got the garden mollycoddled and new gates up. So…yeah us!! 🙂 Speaking of gardens – I picked about 30 blueberries yesterday – the first of the season! Having them this morning in my yoghurt! Yummm-OOOO!!
My card today is…gorgeous. Not cuz I’m all talented or anything but…because it features the stunning Hues of Happiness DSP and the coordinating Happiness Abounds Bundle. You kind of have to make an effort to NOT make something amazing when you use it!! I loved it so much that I actually made TWO cards! Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy weekend! What on your agenda!? Wayne is putting in a new gate post for the back pasture – I’ll be working in the garden mollycoddling my tomatoes and squash. And peppers. And beans. And and and…oh! We have THREE sunflowers blooming! They’re so pretty! They’ve each got a stake so…maybe they won’t fall down. Not sure if they’ll give me any actual SEEDS, but…they’ll probably make the birds happy! 🙂
Once I get done sweating in the garden, no telling what will be next on the list. But – tonight at 7pm eastern, I’m planning to go live on my Stamps-N-Lingers YouTube channel! I’ve got a pretty card for you using….oops – almost gave it away! Here’s a sneaky peek!
Happy Friday!! Whoo-hoo! If you’re like me (yes, even now that I’m retired!) the weekend is stretching out ahead of you and it feels like it’s such a LONG time before you have to go to work again! Surely it’s not just me?! That feeling is so wonderful, isn’t it!? I hope you get to enjoy the time “off”! 🙂
I’ve got a cool card for you – it’s a Slimline card – and it’s perfect as we head into hot (aka “pool” season) time of the year! The sweet little Sunny Splash stamp set features fun bathing suits and sentiments – I added some 2022-2024 In Color DSP and a little texture with the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks. Take a look-see:

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! Hope the week is going well for you. We’re in the midst of the Virtual Incentive Trip event being put on by Stampin’ Up – and it’s been pretty amazing so far. Today is a ZOOM networking session with other achievers and…a Game Show tonight! “So You Think You Can Craft” is the name and….it sounds like it’s going to be a fun time!! 🙂 It’s not quite the same as having all of us together – on a ship – or on Maui – but…it’s a pretty solid substitute!!
My card for today is a pet sympathy card for a friend of mine. I used the new Full of Love stamp set – and the carrying-over Inspired Thoughts set. And – I did some embossing with the Into the Clouds embossing folder. Take a look-see:

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!

My card today is super easy. I know – you’re shocked. I am, too! I used the Lovely in Linen DSP – a couple of Stylish Shapes die cuts – and the Lovely & Lasting Stamp Set to make a quick, clean birthday card. Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy middle-of- May! Can you even believe it!? I can – because I have flowers coming on my tomatoes – and I put fly masks on the ponies for the first time yesterday. It’s summer, baby!! 🙂
My fun-fold card today features some seashells – so…a beachy theme. Sort of. Well – maybe not completely. I used the pretty Texture Chic Specialty DSP as the basis but…then I pulled in the a la carte Mini Pocket Envelope Dies and…the amazing Charming Sentiments bundle. Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy Saturday!! What’s on y’all’s agenda for today? Grocery Shopping? Laundry? House cleaning? Are you going to the Farmer’s Market? Working in the garden!? Whatever is on your list – I hope you have a great day doing it! We’re going to try to get the last couple three veggie beds tubed up for the automatic watering system. It’s…a process! But – we’re almost there and then we’ll be cooking with gas!
This afternoon I’ll spend a couple of hours in the virtual Incentive Trip “event” but…I’m planning to be done in time to get together with y’all over on my Stamps-N-Lingers YouTube channel at 7pm Eastern! I’ve got a fun…fold…for you that I think you’ll like. Hint: it’s EASY! Take a sneaky peek!
