‘Nuff said.

If you were able to join us last night for my Facebook Live video, I thank you for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the sorta-but-not-really instant replay – here ’tis!

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! Double-Time Painted Pinecone Season

Good Friday morning, y’all!  Hope your week has gone well.

If nothing else, you can at least say it’s gone!

And I’m pretty glad of it, too, cuz mine has been topsy-turvy.  My trip has moved (so we’ll be able to meet on Sunday – yeah!).  The downside is that it overlaps OnStage AND – as I realized yesterday! – my young friend’s graduation from Vet School.  I’m trying to figure out how to do it all, because missing EITHER just isn’t going to fly for me – so…keep your fingers crossed!

For today I made a fun little card using a technique and a stamp set that I really love!  It’s the Double-Time technique and the Painted Seasons stamp set (free during Sale-a-Bration!).  Take a look-see:

Yea – you know what day it is.  We’re halfway thru a short week!

And – it looks like things they are a-changing for me (travel-wise) so…stay tuned!  I may be in town this weekend to spend a little time with y’all on Sunday night!  More to come on the continuing perturbations in Mary’s schedule.

Cuz – I know you’re all simply agog with anticipation! 😉

My good-for-any-occasion card today uses a fun little stamp set in the Occasions catalog called Flowering Desert.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Be Mine & We’ll Be So Hoppy Together!

One of my favorite things about where I live is the sheer volume of the frog song we get to hear every night.  Folks – they do NOT say ribbit!!  They speak about a 100 different frog languages and they let loose with joyful abandon every night.  I so look forward to the time of year we can sleep with the windows open so I can listen to them as I fall asleep.

Please do not take this to mean that I have, have had or will ever have a pet frog…Want to pick up and pet a frog…Want to touch a frog in any way.  I just like having them around so I can enjoy their musical talents! 😉

One of the most fun stamp sets in the first Sale-A-Bration release is, without a doubt, the So Hoppy Together set.

Those little frogs – who doesn’t love them!?

Well, I used that set – with the new Hop Around Framelits (which you’re going to be able to get on 1 March!) – and a little bit of Be Mine Stitched Framelits and…well.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! All Adorned Video Tutorial Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all – how goes your weekend?  Ours has been a little soggy.

Not West Coast soggy, for sure.  But definitely…moldy…had a bit of sun yesterday afternoon and it was warm-ish, but…overall…not so wunnerful.

So we ran some errands and then watched movies! And then went to dinner with our friends.  Not a half bad way to spend a Saturday! 🙂

Tonight, we’ll play, yes?  I’ll be live at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’ll make a fun little card using a new Sale-A-Bration stamp set called All Adorned.  Take a sneaky peek:
