Stampin’ Up! Piggy’s, Hugs and a Cup of Cheer Get Well Card

Hey y’all – you did it!  You made it to Friday!  Take a moment to pat yourselves on the back for getting thru another work week! 😉

I needed a very special – and personalized! – get well card this week.  So…I pulled out a couple three sets – including the Cup of Christmas Bundle from the 2019 Holiday Catalog and the This Little Piggy and Healing Hugs sets from the Annual Catalog.  I paired these up with some Come To Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge this week.

I started by matting three different patterns from the Come To Gather DSP on Pretty Peacock cardstock and then building the card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Healing Hugs, is stamped in Cajun Craze on a strip of Whisper White.  Then I snipped a banner end – and edged it with my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker.  It’s adhered at a jaunty angle with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Cup of Christmas sentiment in Pretty Peacock and the polka dot cup (in the left-handed configuration – these are cool stamps that you flip over to get a mirror image!).  I cut the cups with the die in the Cup of Cheer set – then fussy cut the white border from the polka dot cup. I colored the leaves and berries on the sentiment mug with my Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers.

With the dies in the Cup of Cheer set, I cut some Crushed Curry boughs, and I used the Sprig Punch to cut a few Pear Pizzazz leaves.  I adhered those to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a length of Linen Thread and one of Cajun Craze Linen Thread (from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo pack) to tie a big loose bow that I adhered to the card front – over the leaves – with a Glue Dot.

I popped the two cups on with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it all off, I added some Pretty Peacock gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack and the card front was done!

Okay – so now comes some fun! 🙂

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from the Healing Hugs set in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Then, in the corner – I added the little pretty piggy from This Little Piggy in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink!  She’s colored with my Light and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends – the flower is colored with the Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.  I added a pink (Melon Mambo) Noble Peacock Rhinestone by the sentiment and a green (Old Olive) in the middle of the flower.

i used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got Miss Piggy on the front…

…and some more of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the fun mirror-image stamps in the Cup of Christmas stamp set – they work really well and open up a world of options for your card projects!  And the Cup of Cheer Dies are handy as can be to quickly cut those images out!  As you might guess – the recipient of this card likes…pigs!  So the This Little Piggy set is the perfect fit – as is the Healing Hugs sentiments.  It’s so handy to have so many tools in our “tool chest”!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Yesterday, we went over to Alabama to take our taxes to the accountant.  We’ve been going to him since…1992?…so….it’s just what we do.  Kind of an annual rite of passage.

He’s really good about letting us bring Finn – so we’ve taken him each year we’ve had him.

Finn’s always up for a ride.

But – it’s a long ride, so…a guy can only stay “on the edge” for so long…

As the ride progresses he settles in – only getting up again when we stop at the rest area.

NEVER pass up a rest area.  It’s kind of our rule!

We spent the time at the accountant with Finn-y entertaining the receptionist and her daughter.

It’s not easy being adorable – there are fans everywhere!  Old fans and…NEW ones!

They didn’t even KNOW they were fans.

Now they do.

But – that is exhausting work.  And for a Star – it never ends until you’re back in the Limo.

He spent the entire two hour ride home totally sacked out.  To pooped to do much else until the very end of the ride.  He finally did he get up – he was thirsty and hungry (so he ate the rest of the cookies I’d brought along for him) and then….back to snoozing until we made it to the house!

Stampin’ Up! Sweetly Swirled Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  What plans do you have for the weekend?  I think we need to hit the Farmer’s Market this morning (and I think Finn-y might get to go, too!) to get more tomatoes.  I am really regretting not having any plants this year!  Wayne and I came home from Italy with a new-found love of caprese salad!  And…those half-ripe maters from the grocery store….no.  Just…no!

Tonight though, I think we should get together on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page and do a video!  We’ll meet up at 7pm Eastern and make a Sweetly Swirled little thank you card.  Take a sneaky-peek:

So – I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

So – I know I promised Part 2 of the 2019 Holiday Catalog sample parade today, but I forgot about Video Sneaky-Peek Saturday (I just made that name up)!  So…I pinkie-swear….we’ll do it on Monday, okay? 😉

Do YOU Like to Pay Taxes on Your Goodies?!?

Me, neither!

If you love holidays—and don’t love taxes—we have some great news for you! Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies over the next several weeks. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

If you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia or Wisconsin (whoo-hoo!) —click the picture below to see which products will be tax-free for each state !  HINT:  TENNESSEE – YOU’RE UP!  Shop on 26 – 28 July to save big on sales tax!

Important Note: Orders must be placed with Stampin’ Up! during the sales tax holiday period to receive these select items tax free; each period begins—and ends—at midnight (Mountain Time).

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve been thinking of fun things to do with Finn now that I’m going to have time on my hand – and NOT have to go running here and there for months at a time.

One of those things is…pet therapy!  I think Finn-y would be seriously awesome as a pet therapy dog, don’t you?  And…maybe one of those airport dogs – the ones that try to keep folks from having meltdowns.  Not the ones that find drugs or anything. 😉

Since the first step to any of these is…training – I thought we ought to start at home.

And – since we’re inundated with trees – and branches that fall to the ground – I thought to myself “Self – let’s teach the dog to pick up sticks and carry them to a pile and drop them”.

He LIKES to carry sticks.

Unfortunately – the second phase of the process is much MUCH harder.

He sort of likes to…chew them to pieces wherever he picks them up.

Well.  I suppose wood chips might be useful, too?

Baby steps! 😉
