Good morning, my peeps! It’s the first full day on our cruise – and this is an “at sea” day! We’ll be doing our first SU! session this morning (and will probably get a first look at the 2018 Holiday catalog! Which I can’t share yet – sorry!).
I figured you might like a few pictures from yesterday…
We arrived at the pier on the first bus of the morning…
And the Explorer of the Seas came into view.
Good morning good morning good morning!!! GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS?!?
No, silly – it’s not HAWWMP Day! It’s OFF TO VACAY Day!!
We’re on our way to Seattle – and looking forward to a few days of sight-seeing and trying to get the idea of moving to that area out of my head!
I fear this plan may backfire…. 😉
Next on the agenda is the cruise. Whoo-hoo! And I’ve heard tell that the folks who give us all the service that cruises are known for do appreciate a hand-stamped little thank you at the end. Stampin’ Up! has kindly paid our required gratuity (yes – being an SU! demonstrator is awesome and earning a trip is one heck of a perk…perhaps you’d like to earn a cool trip of your own?) but we can give a little extra at the end to those folks who we think go above and beyond.
Well – it turns out that SU! has ALSO come up with the perfectly perfect All Inclusive Card Kit – called…Notes of Kindness!
Good morning! From Atlanta! Whoo-hoo! Made it home in good time – pretty easy all the way around. Watched a movie and did a few blog posts on the ride home!
Arrived to a shocking re-introduction to humidity! Yikes! And a dog who can’t hold his licker! 😉
My card for you today is made with the lovely In Every Season stamp set – an image-only set with 12 wonderful flowers – one for every month! So I used that and a couple of sentiments from the Waterfront set. I put it all on top of some soft Tea Room Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
Happy Tuesday, y’all! Since it’s Tuesday, that means we’ve got another Stamp Ink Paper challenge to give your creative mojo a bump!
This is a Designer’s Choice challenge so I’m betting you’ll see a lot of diverse projects from the Design Team!
I used a new stamp set called Seize the Day and some pretty new colors for my card. Take a look-see:
Whoo-hoo! They’re finally here!! The new colors of the Stampin’ Blends are in the online store!! The full collection is now available!
Can’t wait to get my hands on all those new colors!
Hey y’all – it’s Sunday! Which means….it’s Facebook Live video night!
Of course that also makes it Monday-eve, but…I choose not to think about that aspect of the whole thing!
As is mostly usual for Sunday, I’ll be live tonight at 8pm eastern right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page. We’re going to make a card with the pretty Petal Promenade DSP and…the new A Big Thank You stamp set. Take a Sneaky Peek!
Happy Monday, y’all! That was tongue-in-cheek, just in case you didn’t catch it!
It was an interesting weekend for me here in CA. So – I’m sort of happy it’s behind me and hoping the hives are, too!
If you joined me last night for my Facebook video – thanks so much! I know it wasn’t all that intriguing – so I appreciate your patience! If you didn’t – well, you really didn’t miss much. Didn’t make a card – we just sort of chatted, made sure the internet was going to be adequate for future videos – and I gave a quick little tour of the stamping area I’ve set up in the hotel room. Here’s the link if you want to check it out!
The card I’d planned to make on the video – but then didn’t because all my stuff hasn’t arrived yet – uses the new and super-cute Animal Outing stamp set. Along with some of the pretty Nature’s Poem DSP. Take a look-see:
Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a beautiful color challenge, and I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here!
I pulled out one of my favorite new stamp sets – the Host-Exclusive Very Vintage set. Didn’t use a lick of Designer Paper – just the stamp set, ink and card stock. Take a look-see:
Morning, my peeps! Only half-way thru the weekend. I love a three-day, don’t you?
But – it’s still Sunday, so that means a look at my project for tonights Facebook Live video. We’ll be on at 8pm Eastern (aka: “our usual time”!) right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB Page.
We’ll be doing a new-to-me fun-fold…and there will be some Tranquil Textures and a little Under the Sea die cutting and maybe even a Magical Mermaid….take a sneaky peek:
Forgive the multiple posts today – but I thought Finn’s Fans would like an update.
