Well, good morning and welcome back to the work week. Hope you’ve got a good week ahead! And – if you’re in FL or on the east coast and impacted by Ian…I know that ALL of us are sending prayers and hope for healing and recovery your direction! We were very fortunate here in Atlanta – we didn’t get so much as a raindrop. My heart hurts watching the devastation! 🙁
Okay – on with the business at hand! My card today is a Christmas card – I mean…it’s October, so…time to get on the stick! This one uses the pretty Mistletoe Magic Bundle and some sweet Painted Christmas DSP. 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 great 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!
For my card today, I used one of the three bundles that will be a focus for the Stampin’ Up! World Card Making Day Event being held on Saturday, 1 Oct. It’s the gorgeous Cottage Rose stamp set with its bundled Cottage Flowers Dies and then I added some Abigail Rose DSP to set an elegant stage for this birthday card. Take a look-see:
Good morning and happy Monday! For all of you in Florida or anywhere in Ian’s path…praying for your safety this week! Keep your heads down! Or…you know – leave! 😳😳😳😳 Of course, as I watch the projected path(s) – I see the Atlanta area, too. So…hmm. Hope it holds off rain until AFTER the concrete goes down in the garden shed on Thursday morning! 🙂
My card today is a clean-and-simple little number using the Jingle Jingle Jingle stamp set and Sweetest Christmas DSP! Take a look-see:
Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! We’re back in “last gasp of summer” mode here – nice for a few hours in the morning, but then…channeling a SAUNA around lunch. Yuk. AND – it’s getting dark earlier and earlier. DOUBLE YUK! But – dark early means cooler days are coming – which I am looking forward to – I’m anxious to start griping about the COLD – not the hot! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
My card today is not Christmas. Nor Fall. It’s all about gorgeous organic images of cool greenery and Calypso Coral-ery! Yes – I’m referring to the wunnermus Pretty Prints DSP. It plays a big role in the card – forming the base for the Nature’s Prints leaves – all cut with the bundled Natural Prints Dies. Take a look-see:
Hey, my peeps – how’s everyone today? Doing well? I hope so and I hope that your week is going good so far! Just a quick note – if you haven’t checked out this week’s Weekly Deals – be sure to do that quick – they’re only good thru tomorrow!
My card today uses the super fun – hey, have you heard that Santa Claus is coming to town in…97 days? Yep. It’s true. Sorry! Anywhooo…my card uses the Santa’s Delivery stamp set with its bundled Santa’s Train Dies. And – it’s such a cool set, especially when you consider that the dies will cut out fun images from the coordinating Santa Express DSP (I LOVE when that happens, don’t you??). Take a look-see:
Happy Happy Hawwwpm Day, y’all!
Uhm…did you see my SECOND post yesterday?? About the 24-hour Flash Sale on EVERY stamp set in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog (except Host sets) on 15 Sept?!? That’s TOMORROW. So… I’m reminding you TODAY about a post from YESTERDAY regarding a sale that is TOMORROW! ALL timelines covered! You can read all the deets down below! 😉
My card today is back to Christmas – I’ve opened the floodgates and it’s going to be hard to un-ring this Christmas-card bell. Sorry! 😉 This one uses the pretty Decorated with Happiness stamp set with its bundled Decorated Pine dies – which has one of my fave pine boughs of all time in it! I added a smidge of gold-embossed Lights Aglow Specialty DSP and…some Timber embossing! Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop! Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is “Halloween Fun”! We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!
I thought a nice spooky (not really!) wreath – with a spider and everything! – would be great for Halloween. So…out came the Cottage Wreaths bundle – with the fun Country Wreaths dies. And – the Black & White Designs DSP seemed like a pretty good way to get it started. Take a look-see:
Good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWWMP Day. Or – is it actually Hawwwmp Day if Monday was a holiday?
I dunno. Happy Wednesday either way!
Two Admin-y things before we get going! First – today’s the last day to take advantage of the first September Weekly Deals. Brushed Brass Butterflies and Rustic Metallic Adhesive-backed Dots. Among other goodies. Just sayin’!
And second – today is the START of the availability of a super cool new Kit – called the Christmas Gifting Kit. With this one great kit you’ll be able to make 9 gift tags AND 9 Gift Card Holders! It’s time to be thinking along those lines and…this is a great start! Get the deets down below!
Okay. Here we go! So – I saw one of the most gorgeous cards the other day – my friend Brian King posted it and…I had to CASE it.
I. Had. To.
So – I did! Like him, I used the Peace to You stamp set – although I selected the other big and gorgeous image in the set. And I used my fave Orchid Oasis instead of Starry Sky. Take a look-see:
Good morning and happy Labor Day! I hope you are NOT laboring today and instead are getting ready for a backyard BBQ or some such to celebrate the last holiday of the summer!
My card today celebrates Christmas. Cuz…it’s September. So…why not?! Never too early is my motto. And Walmart’s. And Costco’s…. LOL!
I used the Trimming the Tree stamp set – from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog – with the new (and limited availability!) Tree Trimmings dies – which are part of the Perfect Partners promotion taking place all month! I used a little Lights Aglow DSP, too! Take a look-see:

Good morning! Well – as I predicted – these four days have gone by in the blink of an eye and it’s time to head home! I HOPE that when you read this I’m sleeping in one last time. Or…ANY time! Sleeping in on vacay is not my strong suit – it takes me a while to “un-routine-ize myself and then – if I’m really lucky – I’ll sleep all the way to….630! 😳😳😳 Regardless – we’ll be headed back to the ATL soon!
The card I made for today features a bundle that it took me a minute to pick up. I mean – I am really gnot a gnome person, you gnowm? But – now that I have it…I’m really glad! The Kindest Gnome bundle is adorable AND has the added happy benefit of being able to die cut images right from the coordinating Storybook Gnomes DSP (which I LOVE!). Take a look-see at the wintry thank you card I made with it:
