Saturday was a rough day here at the Deatherage house.

Our sweet Leo went to the Rainbow Bridge.  He’ll be in good company – too many of our fur children have preceded him.

I made it as easy for him as I could.  I hope it was easier for him than it was for me.

He’s the all-black fellow in the back – the one with the big yellow eyes.  Those eyes saved his and his sister 15 years ago.

Rest in Peace, sweet boy.

Stampin’ Up! Farmhouse Snowflake Showcase Sneak Peek

Morning, you guys! Hope your weekend is looking good!

I’ve got a sweet and simple card for you today – made with a set of goodies that you’ll be able to partake of in November (and ONLY November!).  It’s the limited time Snowflake Showcase!  I combined one of the cool die cuts with a sentiment from the Farmhouse Elements.  Take a look-see:

Check.  Out.  That.  Die.  Cut!

Is that the coolest thing ever?!?   I’ll do a whole post about the Snowflake Showcase in a few days – including a video showing you all the goodness!  But…here’s a quick peek….

On this card, I used the Snow Is Glistening stamp set, Snowfall Thinlits dies and….new White Velvet Sheets!  Yep – you read that right.  Velvet.  Sheets.

My layout for this clean-and-simple card is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.

I started by embossing a panel of Merry Merlot card stock in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and matting it on a piece of Whisper White for the card front.

I used one of the gorgeous dies in the Snowfall Thinlits to cut the shape from a new White Velvet Sheet, then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I took a Festive Farmhouse Element and colored it by squishing it on top of my Whisper White Craft Pad.  I did that a few times to get a good solid coverage.  When it was dry, I painted it with my Frost White Shimmer Paint.  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I finished it off by sticking a few of the new Snowflake Trinkets to the die cut with Glue Dots!

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Snow is Glistening stamp set in Merry Merlot on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I added a few snowflakes in Merry Merlot.  I LOVE that there are so many different snowflakes in the one stamp set!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Whisper White mat and into my Merry Merlot card base, and used Liquid Glue to adhere the card front, too – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Snow is Glistening snowflakes across the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Clean and simple isn’t really my wheelhouse – but…that snowflake die cut just demanded that it take centerstage and not have to fight for attention!  As I mentioned, I’ll be showing more samples in the weeks to come – and giving you all the details about the Snowflake Showcase!  Hope you like!

Do y’all remember the great Blue Tarp incident of 2017?

Wherein a blue tarp showed up on the driveway?

Well – the other day, there was another interloper.

Equally dangerous.

 

DO YOU SEE THIS?!?!

Get it, Dad!!! KILL IT!

Not to worry, y’all.  Thanks to the alertness of our guard dog, it’s been dispatched back to whence it came.

Phew!

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Cross-Stitched Christmas!

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’ve had a great week!

I pulled the new Cross-Stitched Christmas stamp set and made y’all a card with it – and I think I broke the code on the big Christmas tree.  I set it atop more of the pretty All Is Bright DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with this week’s The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge (love Tic-Tac-Toe Challenges!!).

I started out by adhering a piece of the All Is Bright DSP on some Cherry Cobbler card stock for the card front.  Then I added another piece, also matted on Cherry Cobbler, adhering it with Liquid Glue.

Next up – the Cross-Stitched Christmas tree.

Here’s my tips for this sorta persnickety three-step image.  Ready?

First – use your Stamparatus.  Really.  You can actually place all three images on the plates (remember plates have TWO sides!).  It will help you line the images up, I promise.

Second?  I want you to deliberately stain your photopolymer stamps.

Oh yes – I said that.  I finally figured out that what makes it hard is SEEING the little cross-stitches.  So…I inked my stamps with Jet Black Stazon and when it had dried – cleaned any excess off.  But you and I both know that my stamps are now lightly colored BLACK.  Makes it MUCH easier to see and align the stitches!

Finally – don’t be afraid to practice on some printer paper or something.  Get it all lined up BEFORE you try to stamp your card stock! 🙂

Okay.  Onward! 🙂

I stamped the Cherry Cobbler stitches first – that’s the image with the least number of stitches on it – on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  The second image is in Old Olive and then I finished up with Mossy Meadow.

Then I cut the image with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  I used Liquid Glue on the left side and a Stampin’ Dimensional on the right side and adhered it to the card front.

I made a banner from a strip of Gold Glimmer Paper and my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I decided some greenery was appropriate, so I cut some boughs from Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow with my Pretty Pines Thinlits.  I also cut a few berries from a Gold Foil Sheet.  These I adhered in a couple of sprays with Liquid Glue!

I made the sentiment by heat embossing the Cross-Stitched Christmas sentiment in White on a piece of Mossy Meadow.  I added faux stitches with my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker and popped the banner on with Stampin’ Dimensioanls.

I finished off the card front with a tiny Linen Bow atop the tree!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on a Crumb Cake panel.  I added a few White heat embossed snowflakes around the sentiment and added more of the Mossy Meadow faux stitches.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some Cross-Stitched Christmas snowflakes heat embossed in white on the front…

…and the envelope flap got more of the All Is Bright DSP.  I’m sure you’re shocked! 😉

Et Voila!  I love this Cross-Stitched Christmas set and think it’s definitely worth spending a minute making sure you get a good image!  And I hope my tips will help you do that!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Bring on the Bright Presents for Christmas!

Happy happy HAWWWMP day!!  I hope that you’re taking advantage of the Stampin’ Up! World Card Making Day (WEEK!) and stocking up on all the goodies!  And then I hope you’re making cards – and SENDING them! – in celebration!

I pulled out a pretty bundle to play with for today’s card – and it’s just in time for Christmas!  It’s the Bring on the Presents bundle – and I put it atop some All Is Bright DSP!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was rather loosely based on the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week!

I started by matting some pretty greenery from the All Is Bright DSP on a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock for the card front.  Then I matted a second design from the pack on another, smaller piece of card stock.

I cut two pieces of “ribbon” using the die in the All The Presents Thinlits (which are available with the Bring On The Presents as a money-saving bundle!).  I cut them from Gold Foil and then adhered them to the smaller matted panel with Liquid Glue.

I trimmed the excess and then adhered the entire panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the big bow twice in Shaded Spruce.  I colored the bows with my Light and Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.  Then I fussy cut one bow – I didn’t want a white border (like I’d have gotten using the die in the Thinlits) – and fussy cut the middle of the second bow.

I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the full bow and used them to wind some Gold Metallic Thread in several loops.  Then I popped it over the “ribbons”.

I put some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the smaller middle section that I’d cut out and placed it over the top of the larger bow.

I stamped the tag outline from Bring On The Presents in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I added the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and cut it with the matching die in the All The Presents Thinlits.  I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the tag – tucked under the bow.

I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the middle of the bow and around on the card front and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the smaller bow image from Bring On The Presents in Shaded Spruce on a Whisper White panel. I also stamped the bow on a sticky note and fussy cut it to create a mask.  I masked off the bow and stamped the ribbon image in Shaded Spruce.  Then I colored the ribbons and bow with the Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.  Finally, I stamped a second sentiment from Bring On The Presents in Cherry Cobbler.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and then into my Shaded Spruce card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the bows and ribbons on the front…

…and then I added some more of the All Is Bright DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Tell me this doesn’t look just like a Christmas present up against the tree!  Nope – that’s what I thought.  You can’t.  Cuz it totally does!  The Bring On The Presents is a wonderful set that will let you make fun and pretty holiday cards throughout the season!  I hope you like!

Sometimes waiting for mom to…jump on the trampoline…make a card…work on a telecom…make dinner (not for you!)…pet the cats…do the laundry…

Well…you get it.

It.  Just.  Gets.   Old.

And really – all a kid can do is just find a spot and rest.

And wait.

 

Fortunately, there’s a chin-shelf handy all the way around the living room…

Master planning!

Stampin’ Up! Takeout Treats and Cauldrons

Good morning, y’all!  I hope your week is going well and that you’re stocking up with the World Card Making Day special savings!  And…are checking out the Stamp-N-Storage special also going on.

It’s just a…special kind of week, eh?? 🙂

My card today is quick and easy-peasy for Halloween!  It started with some Toil & Trouble DSP and then pulled some elements from the Takeout Treats bundle.  Take a look-see:

I played along with this week’s Just Us Girls theme challenge!

I started with some Gorgeous Grape paper from the Toil & Trouble DSP and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist for the card front.

Next up, I cut a circle from Mango Melody paper in the Brights DSP pack and matted it on a Scalloped Circle in Lemon Lime Twist.  Then I sliced it in half and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

With a second piece of the Brights DSP, I cut a banner with the Triple Banner Punch and adhered it just under the half-moon with Liquid Glue.

I cut three equal-sized lengths of new Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered them with a few Glue Dots.

My sentiment, from the Takeout Treats stamp set, is heat embossed in White on Gorgeous Grape card stock, then cut with the die from the Takeout Thinlits.

I stuck some Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the sentiment and used them to wind loops of Silver Metallic Thread, then to pop it all onto the card front.  I finished off by removing the little loop from the end of a Spider Trinket (it just opens up and slides right off) and used a Glue Dot to adhere it to the sentiment.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Cauldron Bubble stamp set in Gorgeous Grape on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it, I added the little hearts and stars from Takeout Treats in Lemon Lime Twist.  Then I colored the stars with my Gorgeous Grape Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and then into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

…then I added a little more Mango Melody paper from the Brights DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Super quick and easy for Halloween thanks to the fun Takeout Treats bundle and Cauldron Bubble!  Of course, the Toil & Trouble DSP, with its fun – and oh-so-spookilicious colors – helps take it over the top!  Hope you like!

I took some more pictures of the Man the other night when he was helping himself to my lap.

I’m not even going to narrate – they don’t need it.

I’ll just sit here quietly and let you gaze upon the sweet face of my sweet little dog.  I may be biased – but…he’s awfully handsome!

Oh – well – do be sure to check out the tongue.

You’ll know which picture.

It was that last one, in case you were wondering…

You’re welcome!

Stampin’ Up! Big Wishes and Buffalo Happy Birthday

Happy New Week and new Month, y’all!  Can you even believe it’s October?!?  Yikes – Christmas is right around the corner!

This week is World Card Making Day – on the 6th, to be exact!  And Stampin’ Up! is celebrating all week with great savings on lots of essentials (can you say…Stampin’ Dimensionals? 😉  Scroll on down for a complete listing of what all is available!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I thank you very much for spending part of your weekend with me.  And hope that you had a good time making plaid!  If you weren’t able to watch live, but would like to see some of the Plaid-A-Pa-Looza – here’s the not-quite-instant replay!

The card I’m sharing is the one that I gave y’all a glimpse of last night – it uses one of the plaids (and you can see how to make it on the video) and the Happy Birthday Thinlit die and Big Wishes stamp set to make a cool masculine birthday card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches – I just turned it on it’s head!

I made the plaid for the center strips with a piece of Gray Granite card stock and the Buffalo Check stamp set.  I inked the stamp with Cherry Cobbler and used my Stamparatus to make sure I got the image depth I wanted.  Then I made the cross lines with a ruler and my Dark Basic Black and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.  You can see how to do it in the video! 🙂

The card front is a piece of Early Espresso card stock that I embossed in the Simple Stripes TIEF.  I ran it thru once and then a second time, turning the card stock 90 degrees for the second pass.  That created a subtle checked (or plaid) embossed design!  Then I matted the panel on Gray Granite with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of new Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with a couple of Glue Dots.  Then I matted the three strips of plaid-i-fied Gray Granite card stock on Gray Granite card stock and popped them over the whole thing with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut two of the Happy Birthday Thinlit die sentiments from Gray Granite card stock and stacked them up using Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered them to the card front – again with Liquid Glue!

To finish the card front, I tied a bow from the Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it at the top with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Big Wishes stamp set in Merry Merlot on a Whisper White panel.  Then I used my Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut a balloon from some more plaid-i-fied Gray Granite card stock and adhered it with some Liquid Glue.  I hand-drew a bow and string with my Journaling Pen.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gray Granite mat and into my Merry Merlot card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another plaid balloon on the front…

…and I used the envelope liner die from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits to cut an envelope liner from the plaid Gray Granite card stock.

Et Voila!  Once again, the Buffalo Check stamp has been transformed into a wonderful plaid background!  This one is perfect for a masculine card when paired with the simple Happy Birthday Thinlit die!  Hope you like!

I discovered the other day – in the Brisket-Shark incident – that MY Brisket-Shark isn’t a huge fan of RAW brisket.  He politely mouthed the little piece I handed him and then dropped it.

He did that twice.

Hmmm.

He was much MUCH less reticent about the tiny tidbit of SMOKED TO PERFECTION brisket.

Smart dog.

On the other hand, he does have some…odd…preferences for snacking…

Case in point….

That’s Cerah’s grazing muzzle he’s licking the black off of.

It’s spent the day at the end of Cerah’s schnoozle, being rooted thru the grass – and mud – and…I sorta shudder to think what else.  Apparently it’s a tasty mix of…what else.

What?  It’s good!  Wanna lick?? 😉

Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Checked Video Sneak Peek

Hey y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well.  We got the car taken care of and…test drove the new Odyssey!  Looks like Honda has bumped their navigation technology into this century so….they may keep my business when it comes time for a new ride.  I LOVE my van.  EVERYthing about it.  EXCEPT the navigation/technology – it’s like….Pong vs my MacBook!  Know what I mean!?

Tomorrow’s a big day – lots of things ending (Bonus Days coupon redemption; Timeless Tidings Project Kit orderability…).  And – a couple of things coming (Stamparatus accessories…).  Just sayin’ – 1 Oct is huge!

Anywho.

I had so much fun yesterday making plaid with the Buffalo Check background stamp that I thought it might be fun for us to play a little on our live video this evening over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Whatcha think?  Up for a Buffalo-Checked Plaid-A-Pa-Looza?!?  Take a sneaky peek!

I hope it looks like fun to you and that you’ll be able to join me on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page tonight at 8pm Eastern!

In addition to car tending on Saturday, we smoked a brisket.

Yum.  OH!

In preparation for said smoking, Wayne trimmed the whole brisket we got at Sam’s.

There be brisket-sharks about!

That’s a real thing.  Google it!

Stampin’ Up! Pleasant Pheasants on Buffalo Plaid

Good morning, my peeps!  Happy weekend!  Hope you have something fun planned.  We have Oil Change planned.  Bleh.

Did the title of the post take you a-back?  It’s Buffalo CHECK, Mary – not PLAID!

Well – but it CAN be plaid!  And it can be a plaid background for the lovely Pleasant Pheasants stamp set and a perfect Thanksgiving sentiment.  Take a look-see!

My layout for this one is from the FabFriday challenge this week.

And I decided to make my own background for the card thanks to the inspiration from the TGIF Technique Challenge!

I started my plaid background by stamping the Buffalo Check image onto a Very Vanilla panel in Cajun Craze.  I used my Stamparatus to get a good, solid check image.

Then I pulled out my ruler and my Dark Mango Melody and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I created lines with the Mango bullet tip and the Old Olive brush tip.  Speaking of TIPS:  start and end your drawn line OFF of the card stock – that way your lines will be smooth.  Oh – and don’t stop mid-line.  Start AND stop OFF the card stock. 🙂

I decided it needed some stitches – so I added them with the bullet tip on my Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend.  Then I matted my new plaid background on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I cut two banners – one in Very Vanilla and one in Crumb Cake – cutting the end with the Banner Triple Punch.  I embossed them both in the new Corrugated Dynamic TIEF and then stacked them and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I punched a few leaves with the Leaf Punch – two from Mossy Meadow and two from Mango Melody. I sponged the edges of the leaves with their corresponding ink and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

The art, from the Pleasant Pheasants set, is stamped in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla.  I colored it with my Light and Dark Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  With my Stamparatus, I added the sentiment in Cajun Craze.

Then I cut it with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added a True Gentleman Button with a Glue Dot then adhered a Linen Thread double-loop Billie-Bow with some Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added a Pearl Basic Jewel that I colored with my Dark Mango Melody Blend.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Pleasant Pheasants in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla panel.  With Soft Suede, I added the leaves image in the corner – and colored the leaves with the same Blends I’d used on the front of the card.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another garland of Fall leaves on the front…

…and some more Buffalo Check “plaid” on the envelope flap!  I made some more of the plaid on a piece of Very Vanilla, adhered it to the flap and fussy cut it!

Et Voila!  Buffalo Check is the perfect background stamp!  And now you know that, with it, you can make any plaid – any time – any color!!  And the lovely Pleasant Pheasants stamp set is just right as we head into Fall and Thanksgiving.  Hope you like!

TTFN

Finn really enjoyed the trip to the tax accountant.  I mean, a ride’s a ride – regardless of the destination!

Also – dogs don’t pay taxes (yet), so there’s really no downside for him!

Once we arrived, there were four of us in the office.

One was collecting our money.

One was having a ton of fun.

Two were…bleh.

Know who was who?

He was pretty intrigued by a tiny person with an equally tiny dog sitting right outside the door…

He was an awfully good boy – only getting up when it started to rain…

He amazes me with his personality.  He bounces for about 5 minutes and then…settles completely.

Boy, did I get lucky with this little man!

Good Friday, y’all!  Our taxes are safely in the hands of the accountant.  We had a great trip to Montgomery and back yesterday – should have seen me.  Phone hooked up and hotspot cooking. Work computer and personal computer doing their thing.  Office on wheels working like a boss! 🙂

So – admin note:  Stampin’ Up! let us know that the Timeless Tidings Kit is rapidly reaching the point of going on the not-orderable list.  Please scroll down to get all the details!

Before we went, I made this card to share with you today, using the new Beautiful Baubles stamp set and a few goodies from the Frosted Bouquet and Pretty Pines die sets.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the idea for the layout from The Paper Players challenge!

I started by adhering a piece of pretty Frosted Floral Specialty DSP to a Merry Merlot mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.  Then I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a length of new Tranquil Tide 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon around on an angle – securing it in the back.

I pulled out some Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper and cut some Merry Merlot berries with the adorable die in the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.  I also cut some Tranquil Tide card stock pine boughs with the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

I adhered the boughs and berries to the card front in an oh-so-artistic way with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Beautiful Baubles ornament in Merry Merlot and fussy cut it.  Then I colored it with my Gray Granite, Tranquil Tide and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  I also “painted” the top and bottom section with my Champagne Shimmer Paint.

I popped the ornament on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Galvanized Metallic Paper and Tranquil Tide Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper bow (cut with Pretty Pines Thinlits dies) to the top of the ornament with some Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Festive Farmhouse Elements – I painted it with Champagne Mist and then Frost White Shimmer Paint and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I painted a single little star (in the Festive Farmhouse Elements) with Frost White Shimmer Paint and added it to the bow with Liquid Glue.  A few more stars got some Merry Merlot with my Marker, and I added them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I finished off with some Silver Metallic Pearls on the ornament and the card front and the card was done.

On the inside, I added a Beautiful Baubles sentiment in Granite Gray to a Whisper White panel.  A Tranquil Tide bow and Merry Merlot stars finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and then into my Gray Granite card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Beautiful Baubles bows and stars on the front…

…and a little of the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Beautiful Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide team up again – this time with the Beautiful Baubles stamp set and Frosted Floral DSP to create an elegant Christmas Card!  Hoep you like!

Finn Fan Fix

So the Finn-ster is a boy.

ALL boy.

We’ve seen him in the water – in the mud – in the rain.

So we know it’s true.  He’s all boy.

Well.  Turns out he’s also all MAMA’S boy.

He’s a lap dog snuggle-buddy, for sure!

The tongue.  It’s just killing me!

That face.  It says…I’ve got her right where I want her! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Shutter Gate Fun Fold Card

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  This is sort of a cool day for me – I think I mentioned on a Sunday video that I’d been invited to be a guest Tutorial Author on SplitCoast Stampers.  And this is the day my tutorial goes live! 🙂

The card that I made for the tutorial – Dina Kowal asked me to do a Shutter Gate Card for it – was made with the new Country Home stamp set and Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

I know you guys know all about these – I’ve done a few for you over these past couple of years.

They look like a Gate Card on the outside, but…

…slide that belly band off and…

I used Soft Suede for the card base and shutters, then matted my Country Lane DSP on Cajun Craze card stock.

For the Country Home flowers on the front, I stamped the image in Soft Suede on Whisper White and colored them with my Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.

I used the circle from the inside cut-out as part of the belly band decoration – don’t toss that circle, y’all! 🙂

The sentiment, from Country Home, is stamped in Mossy Meadow on a piece of Whisper White, then cut with a circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the flowers and can behind the sentiment – separating them just a bit so you’d be able to get a good look at both of them.

I decorated my Whisper White Medium Envelope – well, duh! – with another Country Home image on the front…

…and a little more Country Lane DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Gate card goes wild!  The inside shutter mechanism is easy to make and I love it in its Country Home and Country Lane livery!  I hope you like!

So – there’s a video with the Wednesday tutorial – and you can find it right here!

Hope you enjoy it if you get a chance to watch!

Finn Fan Fix

Today (Tuesday), was bi-annual doggie check-up day!

We went to see Dr. Amanda to get lovings – and a few vaccines – and some kisses – and our heart listened to – and hugs – and our weight (we need to drop a couple!) – and some treats (well – we’ll start the diet tomorrow!).

He was wiggling so hard we could hardly get in the front door!

We had to wait a minute – I mean…it IS a doctor’s office, after all!

Then one of his friends came and took him for his first stick.  Blood work. 🙁

But – he returned, bravely sporting his blue bandaid – and waited impatiently for the “good part”

Finally – Dr. Amanda came in and….the hugging and kissing and petting and loving commenced!

He was panting so hard – cuz of the excitement! – that he had to be shushed just a little bit….so that they could listen to his heart!

Finally – all done!  Bandaid off – just had to wait for his heartworm medicine!

With any luck – we won’t see them again for 6 months.

He IS a boy, though… 😉

Just sayin’!
