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:

Good morning, y’all, on the very last day of 2018! And – welcome to our final post of the year! 🙂 Here’s to another 365 days of fun with you guys!
For those of you who spent New Year’s Eve-Eve with me, I thank you for giving me a little of your weekend! If you weren’t able to join us – and would like to see the almost-live-but-totally-recorded version, here ’tis!
This card is made with the new 2019 Occasions Catalog Piece of Cake stamp set (it has a bundled punch, but I didn’t didn’t need it for this one!) and some Happiness Blooms DSP. The Celebrate You Thinlits from the annual catalog lent a die cut sentiment. Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! Here we are – two days before the end of 2018. Pretty hard to imagine!
And – I’m a little disappointed that George Jetson was SO. VERY. WRONG!
WHERE is my flying CAR?!?! WHERE is my in-home Robot-Maid?!?
No – a Roomba does NOT count, so don’t even try!
Guess that just shows ta go ya that not EVERYTHING you see on tv is true, right? 😉
So – we’re going to end 2018 in the way we’d like 2019 to go – with a weekly Facebook Live video! I’ll be on tonight at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page. We’re going to make a fun little card with some new 2019 Occasions Catalog goodies – the Piece of Cake stamp set and some Happiness Blooms DSP. Take a sneaky peek!
Good morning from rain-soaked-and-soggy Georgia! Good golly! We’ve gotten so much rain in the past day or two – it’s been cray cray! Hopefully it bodes well for a non-drought-ridden summer!
One of the cool new stamp set bundles in the 2019 Occasions Catalog is called Happy Tails! The stamp set is bundled up with the Dog Builder Punch.
I’ve been waiting for a good dog stamp set – that would let me make sympathy cards for folks who’ve lost their fur-kids! Non-cartoon-y ones, and this is a great add to my tool chest!
So – for today, I paired this new bundle with some All My Love DSP to make a sympathy card for the loss of a pet – just to have on hand! Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all – happy Friday! Can you even believe we’re heading into the last weekend of 2018? Sheesh! Before you know it…the Big Ball will be dropping and we’ll be eating collard greens and black-eyed peas!
Well – WE sure will! Why tempt fate by NOT eating them?!?
As we head into a new year and make our resolutions to be more efficient. More organized. More….together!…Stampin’ Up! and Paper Pumpkin helped us out with the December kit! It’s called Day by Day and it created a cute 18- month calendar, complete with a box for gifting! Super cute!
Good Sunday, y’all! Tomorrow Santa will begin his whirlwind tour! Hopefully all his elves are ready!
And remembered AA – AAA – 9V and 75 C-Cell batteries! 😉
In order to ensure that all the elves have time for their last-minute preparations, we will NOT do a video tonight – sorry! This elf is going to spend the evening watching Hallmark Christmas movies! 🙂 I’ll see y’all next Sunday!
My card today should bring Spring to mind – it does for me, with its gorgeous Botanical Butterfly paper and wonderful sentiments from the Dear Doily stamp set. Take a look-see:
Good morning, my peeps! It’s the weekend – and a long one at that, leading into Christmas! I hope you’re ready and are now kicking back to enjoy the results of your preparations! I got my cookie plates delivered yesterday – which not only brought smiles to the recipients, but GOT THE COOKIES OUT OF MY HOUSE!! Winner winner!
My card today is a clean and simple little number using the new Forever Lovely stamp set, the beautiful Lace Dynamic TIEF and some All My Love DSP. These are all available starting on 3 Jan in the 2019 Occasions Catalog! Take a look-see:

Well. It’s HAWWWP Day. And – I DID it! I actually got all the boxes packed and out the door. Cuz – have you heard that Christmas is THIS COMING TUESDAY?? Who knew?!? 😉
I make no promises about WHEN things will arrive, but…God and UPS and USPS willing….arrive they will!
So. Now all I have left to do is a few more bake-y things that I stuck on my list of things to do – cuz….NOT having a list would just be…weird! And I like to feed my surrogate kids at the holidays, so…bake I will!
For now, let’s take a look at a card, shall we? This one uses the new Vibrant Vases stamp set in the 2019 Occasions catalog – which means you’ll be able to get it on 3 Jan 19! (I’m not even going to tell you how far away that date is – I am a BAD source for such things!). A fun little tidbit about this set is that it matches the Vase Builder Punch – which is a current punch in the Annual Catalog (and is bundled with the Vivid Vases stamp set)! I added it to a little Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see:

Good morning, my peeps – on this Monday two exact weeks before Christmas! UPDATE: My friends in the blogisphere have pointed out that my panic is unjustifiably SMALL – Christmas is only ONE WEEK AWAY! YIKES!!! Please wish me luck getting things wrapped and boxed and out the door today! Time. Is.
Also – I need to make cookies and whatnot….if only I didn’t like to sleep… 😉
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! I know how busy everyone is! If not and you’d like to see how to make this gift card holder, you can check it out right here on YouTube.
