Good morning and happy Monday! I just took a look at the calendar and…three weeks from TODAY is….yep. Christmas!! And I am totally ready.
I mean – I WOULD be ready if I’d stop ADDING things to the list of stuff to make/give/do! 🤷♀️🤷♀️
Today’s card is NOT a Christmas card – it’s a Sneaky Peek at another gorgeous new bundle coming soon in the Jan-Apr 2024 Mini Catalog! It’s called Stippled Roses and…it ALSO has a coordinating paper – called the Softly Stippled DSP. And – that paper is going to be…FREE! 🎉🎉🎉 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!
For our theme today, the Winter Meadow DSP (thankfully carrying over!!) seemed like the perfect starting point! I pulled out the So Sincere set for its cool sentiments. Then – needing some foliage (hello??) – I reached back to the (soon-to-be-retired! 😔) Magical Meadow bundle! Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy Black Friday!! Are you still a little full from yesterday’s dinner? I know I am – and I can still smell the smoker when I walk by it – which makes me want another bite of ham. How can I still be full AND want a bite of ham?! 🤷♀️🤦♀️
Being Black Friday – there’s lots of good sales on and if you’ll read on after you check out today’s card – you’re going to see the Black Friday sale at Stamp-N-Storage, too! It’s a good ‘un! 🙂
So – card! This is a Christmas card with no front sentiment. Have you made any of those? I don’t do it a lot – but it’s fun every once in a while and sometimes a design really lends itself to that. This one, with some pretty paper from A Walk in the Forest DSP (retiring soon!) and trees die cut from that paper using the Merriest Trees die set (carrying over – along with the coordinating stamp set!) – makes for a quick and easy card! Take a look-see:

Hey guys! Happy Thanksgiving-eve! Are you doing all the cooking and prepping today? I’m getting BOTH my pressure cookers fired up for potatoes, making pimento cheese and deviled eggs and a pumpkin dessert. And Brussels Sprouts – using a recipe we had at our retreat (they’re so yummy that people who said – “I HATE brussels sprouts” went back for seconds!!). So – busy day!
Since I promised that our Thursday videos would showcase a new pretty from the Jan-Apr 2024 Mini Catalog…but we’re not DOING a video tomorrow – I decided to give you a sneaky look TODAY! And – I even did a short video, too!
For this one – we’re looking at the Painted Lavender Suite – the Painted Lavender stamp set and Perennial Postage bundle (one of my favoritest new things!). And the Painted Lavender DSP is…simply…stunning! Oh – and I used the Alphabet A La Mode dies from the 2023-24 Annual Catalog, too! Take a look-see:

Happy Monday, y’all! It’s a short week – for those of you who are working! – so…YEAH! But it’s also a BUSY week, right?! Cooking and cleaning and getting ready for T-day! It’s…T-4 to T-D! 😂
My card today befits a busy week – it’s super quick and easy – and showcases the cool Botanical Layers stamp set from the Annual Catalog and a fun stamping technique, too! A little Les Shoppes DSP – also from the Annual Catalog – was a perfect fit! Take a look-see:
Happy Monday, y’all! We’re in the last couple of weeks before Thanksgiving – have you started to gather your supplies?? In case you’re in denial that it’s so close – with Christmas right around the corner – it’s time to come to terms with it, y’all! 🙂
I’ve got another card that would be perfect for Thanksgiving – featuring the Rustic Crate bundle and…Joy of Christmas DSP! Yep – that Christmas paper has gorgeous woodgrain designs and I knew it was perfect! Pretty leaves from Abundant Beauty grace one layer and a little Exposed Brick 3D Embossing adds a perfect touch of tone-on-tone texture. 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 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:
