Stampin’ Up! A Good Day for Delightful Daisy 3-D Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  By the time you get this, I’ll be up and moving!  Got lots to do to get ready to head up North a piece for our Team Meeting today!  We do an “in person” meeting once a quarter – and I really look forward to them.  Of course, we also include our out-of-town teammates via a Zoom online meeting.  So they get all the business scoop!  Sadly, they do not get to have lunch with us, or do our fun make-and-takes or…love up on Finn! 😦

So – we have a busy day, but I’ll be back and ready to share a little sumpin’-sumpin’ with y’all this evening at 8pm eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  We’re going to play with some Delightful Daisy DSP and the A Good Day stamp set.  Take a sneaky-peek!

Can you tell what it is?

Guess you’ll need to come join me tonight – 8pm.  Eastern.  Right here!

Hope to see you then!

Finn Fan Fix

Well – the rain clouds threatened on Saturday.

I told Finn I wasn’t really sure that the money and effort for a trip to the PuppyTubs was really going to be worth it, considering the mud that was likely to ensue.

He was pretty insistent, though.

He likes to be fresh and clean and all shiny white for his fans.

So – we went.  

On the way, he thought deep thoughts.  And sighed deep sighs.

He rested his head (deep thoughts and deep sighs are tiring, you know!) and prayed his spa-day wouldn’t be rained out.

But.  The bath Gods smiled upon him.

And it was good.  

And wet.

Very very wet.

And Finn got wet, too.

Watch for a re-counting of his Sunday with his ladies tomorrow!

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Springtime Birthday Video Sneak Peek

Good morning!  It’s Sunday – the weather is simply…spectacular here!  It’s been in the low 70’s with clouds that finally broke up in the breeze to leave bright blue skies and big ole puffies floating by!

Stampin’ Up! Hanging Garden Charming Cafe for Stamp Ink Paper #136

Happy Tuesday, y’all – and welcome to another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  

We were playing with a theme this week – called Cabin Fever.  As I thought of what to do for y’all to embody this theme – my eye fell upon the growing stack of seed catalogs that come this time of year!  And I knew – vegetables!  This is the time of year when it’s still too cold to start those gardens – but we want to – so badly!! I don’t have a set filled with tomato, pepper and squash plants – so, I pulled out a couple of pretty stamp sets that embody the beauty of flowers (and the butterflies that flock to them!) in Spring – Hanging Garden and the Charming Cafe bundle. Take a look-see:

As I mentioned, the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #136 this week is all about Cabin Fever.  What makes you itch to get outside before Winter is even over?  Come and play along, won’t you?!  The winners this month will be in the running to be a Guest Designer on our challenge! 🙂 Continue reading
