Happy happy HAAWMMP Day! It’s downhill from here, y’all! And…we’ve got good stuff happening on the weekend – can you say…World Card Making Day!? Yep – we’re going to be hosting a FB Live Event with card demos and prizes and all sorts of fun! Watch for more info as we get closer!
I’ve got a pretty card from the retreat for you today – this one was from Cindy Blaine and it uses some of my favorite things from the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog – the Nature’s Harvest Bundle, Cork Specialty Paper and…the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! I hope you’re fixin’ to have a good day! The weather here is the answer to “why the heck do you live in GA with the nasty heat and humidity” question. Because of FALL!! All things being equal, Finny and I are headed south about an hour to a fun-drive event (horse carriages – not cars!). We’ll be spectators only – but…I’m sort of excited to dip my toes back into the carriage driving world. Not sure more than my toes will get wet, but…we’ll see.
Just so you know – the girls both just fainted down in the pasture at the very idea that driving might be back on the table. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! 😂😂😂😂
But – I’ll be back this evening in time to get together with y’all to make a cool Fall card for you over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page! I’ll go live at 7pm Eastern. Take a sneaky peek.
Good morning and Happy Friday! Wanna hear something REALLY scary!? Hang on to your hat.
There are 93 days until Christmas.
Yes. Ninety. Three.
Less than 100. Three months.
In other words…it’s TOMORROW!!!! 😳😳😳😳😳
To that end, I have a fun stocking stuffer for you today! If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube Live then you were able to watch me make it. If not but you’d like to watch the replay here ’tis! I highly recommend that you watch it – this isn’t a terribly difficult box – but…it’s a LOT easier to see how to make it from a video than it is from reading!!

Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! We’ve got a color challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
So – I saw the colors for our challenge and figured I ought to use the whole Beauty of Tomorrow Suite. But…I decided to use a little of the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP and then go rogue and pull out the Well Defined sentiment set and…the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle. Take a look-see:
Happy Happy Hawmpp Day! We’re on the downward slide to the weekend! Whoo-hooo!
So – at the retreat last weekend, we did a little “class” on the Marker-to-Stamp coloring technique using Stampin’ Write Markers and the Stamparatus. I’d taken my Shaded Summer stamp set and 2021-2023 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers to do the demo. I was pretty happy with the resulting piece of art – so I tossed the panel into my stuff to bring home. I decided to parlay it into a quick and easy thank you card. Take a look-see:

Hello, y’all – it’s Tuesday! Tuesday is such a….”meh” kind of day. It’s not the first day of the week (yuk). It’s not the last day (yeah!) nor even the day BEFORE the last day (light at the end of the tunnel) and it’s fer sure not HAWWWMP Day! It’s just…Tuesday. Another day to slog thru to get to a day with a purpose! 🤷♀️
So…maybe this cheery card – brought to us by Sue Prather – that we created over the weekend at our retreat – will give you a little boost and something to be excited about! 🙂 This one uses the flyover Festive & Bright Bundle in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. And some…FREE Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog! I LOVE FREE paper, don’t you?? Take a look-see at what we did with this Peaceful Prints DSP and the Festive & Bright Bundle.

Happy Monday! I’m home and Amy and Karen are home and all the other Kool Krew members are home or on their way. We had SUCH a good time – and are already planning for a late October 2022 retreat at The Crafty Elk Lodge! We decided that we’d try to go in the Fall when it was lovely and cool in the N. GA mountains so we could take even better advantage of the outdoor fireplaces and seating areas!!
Good Sunday morning, y’all – from the North GA mountain! It’s the last day of our retreat – hard to believe. It takes SO long to get here and then –BLINK– it’s over! We’ve had such a good time I’m already looking ahead to a team retreat NEXT year here, too! Maybe one of you reading this will join us! 🙂
We’ve done a bunch of great shoebox projects – and they’re all wunnermus! I’ll most likely be sharing them over the next few days. But today, I want to show you the project that I brought for everyone! It uses one of my fave sets/suites in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog – the Whimsical Christmas stamp set with it bundled Christmas Trees dies. And the gorgeous – totally non-traditional-Christmas colored! – Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP. AND – it’s one of my favorite fun folds, too! Take a look-see:
