Good morning and happy Sunday! I had a great few hours watching the OnStage @Home event yesterday and…I may or may not have already placed my Product Purchase Premier order! And I may or may not have accidently hit the Next Day button. Which means I may or may not be giving you a sneaky peek in a video on Monday! You’ll want to be watching for that – I mean, JIC I did ALL those things!! And – there are some AMAZE-balls new goodies coming in the Jan-Apr 2024 Mini – can’t WAIT for you to see them. Or…GET them early! 😉
My card today is one that we made at our Retreat last weekend – Linda Nye brought this as her shoebox swap and it is SO cool! It featured the gorgeous Night Divine bundle and Shining Brightly Specialty DSP – and I added a few goodies from the Stars at Night Bundle, too. It’s a stunning votive easel card…take a look-see!

Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We’ve got a sketch 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!
My Mom’s birthday was yesterday and – since reading is the thing she likes to do more than almost anything else (I promise if she’s reading one book she’s reading three. At the same time! 😎😎). So – the book paper in the All About Autumn DSP seemed like it HAD to be on her birthday card. And – since it also happened to be a fun take on our sketch this week. I added some Autumn Leaves die cuts and a sentiment from Lasting Joy. And – I pulled out Places in the Heart, too. Take a look-see:

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day! Tell me – are you enjoying Daylight Standard Time yet? If you are – don’t tell me – cuz…I just couldn’t take it, I don’t think! I hate it so much. So. So. Much. My body says GO TO BED as soon as it starts to get dark. Which is VERY problematic when that pretty much takes place at lunch time!😳😳😳
My card today is a clean and simple little thank you card that is very timely as we head into Veteran’s Day! It combines the Modern Garden set (from the Sep – Dec 2023 Mini Catalog) and the Go To Greetings set (from the Annual Catalog) – in colors that symbolize this holiday. Take a look-see:
Good morning and happy Sunday! Did you remember to turn your clocks – microwaves – cable boxes – CAR RADIOS?! – back!? Or are you in the school that just leaves some of the too-hard-to-change clocks on one time all year? I may or may not leave the truck alone – I can’t actually remember how to do it so…. 🤷♀️ Why, oh why, can’t we just leave the time alone??
We’re almost at the end of our retreat – dang it! 😢 It’s been so much fun – we’re already making plans for next year! Which means…there’s still time for you to establish your Critter-dom status! 😎😎😎
Since y’all missed out on the 8-Saturdays-till-Christmas video last night (sorry – not sorry!) – I decided to do a Christmas card for you today – AND I even made a short video on how to make it. I’m a giver that way. 🙄 This one features the fun stand-alone Handcrafted Elements dies – with supporting roles from Night Divine, Joy of Noel and Christmas Classics. Take a look-see:

Good morning from the Crafty Elk Lodge in north GA – where it is COLD outside!! 🥶 It’s Day 2 of our Krew Retreat – and it’s everything we’d been anxiously looking forward to all these months! We’re eating – and we’re crafting. And laughing. And – did I mention eating? James is treating us very well, as usual! Wish y’all could be here with us!
Now my card today is a harbinger of Fall! I know – Fall’s been here a minute but…I liked how that sounded, okay? 🤷♀️ It’s got a pretty Fruitful Blessings die cut acorn plus a few pumpkins from the All About Autumn DSP. And, one of my faves – a little Timeworn Type 3D Embossing! Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We’ve got a theme 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!
I pulled out a little sumpin’-sumpin’ that some of us demonstrators got to get our hands on WAAAY early! It’s the Square Pillow Boxes from the Jan – Apr 2024 Mini Catalog! Yes. It’s almost time for a NEW catalog! Now – there’s lots of things you can do with these fun 3-D treat holders – but…I decided to turn one into a treat holder/Christmas Ornament. I used the Joy of Noel Dies and some of the Christmas Classics bundle to get it done! Take a look-see:

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawwmmmp Day! And – happy First Day of November! And – also – YIKES. It’s the FIRST. DAY. OF. NOVEMBER! 🤦♀️🤦♀️ Crazy.
My card today is a pretty – and easy! – clean and simple thank you card from the Autumn Leaves bundle. And the wunnermus Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder adds quick tone-on-tone texture. It all comes together in rich, Autumn colors. Take a look-see:

Good morning – and Happy Halloween! Are you trick-or-treating tonight? Closing the door – pulling the blinds – turning off all the lights? Or…looking at a big bowl of candy and waiting for the ghoulies and ghosties to show up!? We’re doing none of the above – no sane ghoulie or ghostie ever ventures down our loooooooonng driveway in the dark! Not even for Reese’s!!
Just an admin note: today is not only Halloween but it is ALSO the final day of the World’s Best Joining Special (that’s not even an exaggeration!) AND it’s the last day of my Packaging Special! So if you’re that “wait till the last minute” person…guess what!? 😳😳
Now – since it IS Halloween I have a Christmas card for you today! Always looking ahead! This one is a bright and cheery little number showcasing the Wishes All Around stamp set and bundled dies, plus some fun Merry Bold & Bright DSP. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend – we have gorgeous Fall weather – it’s warm enough to keep the windows open at night and cool enough to keep them that way all day! I love it! And – there’s leaves on the ground EVERYWHERE – so…it’s got that Fall SMELL, too! My fave!
My card today is another one that you might decide you’d like to make to send out this year – and it features the wonderful Magical Meadow bundle and gorgeous Winter Meadow DSP. Y’all have told me you like Christmas cards that have a sentiment on the inside – like…”Merry Christmas” so…the Stars at Night filled the bill! Take a look-see:

Good morning and…happy….FRIDAY!? Again?! Sheesh! We were chatting last night on my Zoom that we can’t believe it’a almost November! Almost Thanksgiving. Almost CHRISTMAS! Where HAS this year gone?!? 🤷♀️🤷♀️
My card today comes from a stamp set that I bet…you missed. It’s in the Sep – Dec 2023 Mini Catalog – but…it’s a real fly-over! It’s called Precious Pinecones and it’s one of our Reversible sets! Since it doesn’t have any sentiments – and the Biggest Wish set was still on my desk – I pulled it out to complete the deal. Take a look-see:
