Happy Happy Hawwmp DAAAAAAY!! Whoo-hoo! It’s almost OnStage Day!! 48 hours from now I’ll be on my way to Charlotte and having that new Annual Catalog in my sweaty little mitts! Happy dance happy dance!
And – if YOU want that new catalog in YOUR little mitts (sweaty or otherwise!), then you need to be sure you’re on my mailing list! How to do that? If you’ve placed an order in the last year – you’re on it! Not sure? Give me a holler and we’ll double check! If you haven’t ordered from me – and you aren’t working with another demonstrator – you can get on my list by heading over to my Online Store and getting an order in for $50 or over! You’ll get on my list, earn Peppermint Points, and get a nice little ordering gift! Get ‘er done by 1 May to be sure you make that first mailing list – I’ll be ordering my catalogs on 2 May!
Now – let’s get on to the card for today, shall we? I used the host-exclusive stamp set from the 2019 Occasions catalog called Here Comes the Sun for this friendship/thank-you card and paired it up with the Basketweave Dynamic TIEF and some pretty Gingham Gala DSP. Take a look-see:
Good morning! Sunday has dawned….chilly…here in the mid-Atlantic! Again. Saturday was shirt-sleeve weather and today…not so much. Oh well. That’s what covers, mittens and caps are for, right??
If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video at the new time on the new day, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to see how to make today’s card, here’s the replay!
I used the gorgeous Wonderful Romance Suite of goodies for this one – including the stamp set by the same name and my favorite – the Floral Romance Specialty DSP. And I added a couple of sentiments from the All Things Thanks stamp set. Take a look-see:

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.
I decided to use the Needle & Thread stamp set with the bundled Needlepoint Elements Framelits for this one – it just made sense to me! Take a look-see:
Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! Hope your week is going well! Mine is…going…with all the usual start-of-test bumps and hiccups. The jellyfish are swarming and we’re doing our best to herd them into a solid jelly-blob! 🙂
My card today uses the gorgeous, stunning, beautiful Floral Romance Specialty DSP and coordinating Wonderful Romance stamp set! Then I added a little sentiment from the All Things Thanks set in the Annual Catalog. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all, from “By the Bay”!
See what I’m doing here? I figured, since I am – literally! – BY the bay, that it would be a great time to use that stamp set! And – you remember this is a FREE-with-a-$50-purchase set during Sale-A-Bration! For this card, I paired it up with some grasses from the Home To Roost set (ALSO a FREE SAB goody!). Take a look-see:
Hello from Maryland! Made it yesterday in decent-ish time (have to say – the traffic thru DC was ridiculous especially given that it was Saturday – I’ll never complain about Atlanta traffic again!). I was pretty whooped (I’m not as young as I was the last time I made this trip!) so only sort of unpacked the car – just enough to be able to go to bed. Will finish that today and get my “nest” made! Keep an eye on your FB notifications later this evening – I may hop on for a few minutes to give you a gander at my home-away-from-home for the next 5 – 6 weeks – if I can get it all together!
So my card for today is one that uses the gorgeous – and FREE during Sale-A-Bration! – Botanical Butterfly DSP and the Butterfly Gala stamp set. Take a look-see:
Happy Friday, y’all! I’m in chicken-with-my-head-cut-off mode today. At some point I have to stop making cards and start PACKING! No matter how hard I squeeze my eyes shut and shake my head back and forth and pound my fists, tomorrow IS going to come and I WILL have to get in my car and drive down the driveway. With or withOUT my stuff!
Since I prefer WITH – time to get on the stick, Mare! 😉
I have found that talking to myself doesn’t actually do any good. But what the heck!
My card today is super simple! It’s not exactly what I started out to make – that effort just didn’t work for me. I didn’t like it – so I changed it! But I DID stick with my Happiness Blooms DSP and the Thank You Thinlits Die, with an assist from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set and Country Floral Dynamic TIEF. Take a look-see:
Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.
I pulled out the pretty All That You Are stamp set – which coordinates with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits! Remember that die set carried over from the 2018 Holiday Catalog? Take a look-see:
Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with using this pretty, monochromatic-ish, color palette! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.
I pulled out my favorite paper from the Needlepoint Nook DSP and combined it with a sentiment from the Climbing Roses stamp set. Take a look-see:
Good Friday morning, y’all! Hope your week has gone well.
If nothing else, you can at least say it’s gone!
And I’m pretty glad of it, too, cuz mine has been topsy-turvy. My trip has moved (so we’ll be able to meet on Sunday – yeah!). The downside is that it overlaps OnStage AND – as I realized yesterday! – my young friend’s graduation from Vet School. I’m trying to figure out how to do it all, because missing EITHER just isn’t going to fly for me – so…keep your fingers crossed!
For today I made a fun little card using a technique and a stamp set that I really love! It’s the Double-Time technique and the Painted Seasons stamp set (free during Sale-a-Bration!). Take a look-see:
