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! Beauty and Butterflies Video Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday, y’all! Hope your weekend is going well!

We had a nice time last night with our friends – went to dinner (sorta spur-of-the-moment) – at the local Mellow Mushroom pizza house.  I’d forgotten how danged good their pizza is – it’s the crust.  Perfect!  Good evening – good company – good food!  We’re trying to go once every couple of weeks just to grab a bite and catch up.  Nice!

So – being that it’s Sunday and not “THAT Sunday in February” – which is…next week, yes? – we’ll get together tonight and make us a card shall we?  I’ll be live over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 8pm Eastern.  Our card will use some pretty Botanic paper, a real “beauty” of a stamp set and a few Beautiful butterflies!  Take a sneaky-peek:

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful Floral Romance

Happy Friday, y’all!  I’m glad to be back home again!  It was a good trip – learned a lot that’ll help me when I go for the longer haul in February.  Like…the hotel will be just fine for setting up my stampin’ spot.  It’s right next door to the Post Office.  AND – there’s all sorts of places to eat and shop right there, too – including an IKEA!

Whoo-hoo!

Oh – and I learned some work-related things, too – so…there’s that! LOL

So – on to the card!  I think we can all agree that one of the most beautiful-est suites in the new 2019 Occasions catalog is the Floral Romance, yes?  Part of that is the Floral Romance Specialty DSP, for sure – you guys have seen it and know it’s gorgeous!  And there’s also the Wonderful Romance Bundle – which includes the Wonderful Floral Framelits!  I used ALL of those in today’s project.  Take a look-see:

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:
