Stampin’ Up! Golden Afternoon Sympathy Card

Good morning!  Well – one week is (almost!) in the books!  And it’s been a busy – and WET!! – one!

Sheesh – on Thursday it just rained buckets and tons.  And it was cold.  Really just a nasty day.  My poor guys were soaked to the skin. 🙁  I’m hoping that today is a little better – but…I’m not holding my breath.  Wishing I’d brought some waders! 😉

My card today is a sympathy card – don’t have a need for it now, but it’s never bad to have one on deck, right?  I used the beautiful Golden Afternoon stamp set and made a super clean-and-simple card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Home To Roost By The Bay

Good morning, y’all, from “By the Bay”!

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Butterfly Gala

Hello from Maryland!  Made it yesterday in decent-ish time (have to say – the traffic thru DC was ridiculous especially given that it was Saturday – I’ll never complain about Atlanta traffic again!). I was pretty whooped (I’m not as young as I was the last time I made this trip!) so only sort of unpacked the car – just enough to be able to go to bed.  Will finish that today and get my “nest” made!  Keep an eye on your FB notifications later this evening – I may hop on for a few minutes to give you a gander at my home-away-from-home for the next 5 – 6 weeks – if I can get it all together!

So my card for today is one that uses the gorgeous – and FREE during Sale-A-Bration! – Botanical Butterfly DSP and the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! The Road Trip is Underway…Piece of Cake!

Well.  Here we are – Saturday.  THE Saturday.  If I’ve done what I set out to do, then by the time you read this, I should be on the other side of Atlanta on my way to Maryland!  We got everything packed up last night and then…it was time at the hiney-crack-of-way-too-early this morning!

I always get a rental car for these kinds of business trips…

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Bloom By Bloom Thank You

Happy Friday, y’all!  I’m in chicken-with-my-head-cut-off mode today.  At some point I have to stop making cards and start PACKING!  No matter how hard I squeeze my eyes shut and shake my head back and forth and pound my fists, tomorrow IS going to come and I WILL have to get in my car and drive down the driveway.  With or withOUT my stuff!

Since I prefer WITH – time to get on the stick, Mare! 😉

I have found that talking to myself doesn’t actually do any good.  But what the heck!

My card today is super simple!  It’s not exactly what I started out to make – that effort just didn’t work for me.  I didn’t like it – so I changed it!  But I DID stick with my Happiness Blooms DSP and the Thank You Thinlits Die, with an assist from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set and Country Floral Dynamic TIEF.  Take a look-see:

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:
