Stampin’ Up! Finn Update

Forgive the multiple posts today – but I thought Finn’s Fans would like an update.

Especially since it’s filled with good news!

My friend and I picked Finn up from the overnight clinic first thing this morning.  Before they brought him out, they gave us the update.

He’d had a good night – including “pulling them around the yard” when they took him outside at midnight.  At first he was stumbly coming out of the pen, but…hey.  He’s a kid and he sleeps real sound.  I stumble around, too!

They also said he was standing up every time someone walked near his kennel.

And – when I asked if he was wiggling anything she said – yes, he’s wiggling everything he’s got to wiggle!

Hallelujah!

Soon, he was there.  And he rounded the corner pulling hard as he could, wiggling everything he had – nearly full body!

After giving me a hug, he turned and put his feet up on the counter to say hello.

Which – in “normal” times, is frowned upon by his mom.

Today? I was thrilled to death!

We headed to the van – all under his own power! – and opened the back hatch.  As I got ready to lift him in, he leapt right up – and kept going over the back seat.

“We ride here, Mom – not in the way-back like we did yesterday”!

So – I got in the back seat with him and he laid down half on my lap all the way to the vet.  Sleeping – and giving me kisses.

I love this silly goofus so much. 🙂

He pulled me into the vet – accepted a cookie (he hadn’t been interested in eating overnight) – and we left him there for a day of observation and recovery.

Tonight – we’ll play it by ear and he’ll either come home or spend the night there (don’t have to go back to the critical care spot).

Tomorrow we’ll discuss fixing the hole in his noggin.

So – a MUCH MUCH better post than this morning, yes?

I appreciate all the e-mails, texts and comments.  And I’ll respond to each and every one when I get a minute.  Have to do the morning chores and start getting my brain out of “crisis” mode and into “normal” mode!

Stampin’ Up! Special Celebrations In Every Season Sneak Peek for Stamp Ink Paper #145

Mornin’, y’all!  It’s Tuesday so…time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!

I decided to use a stamp set from the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog – and it’s one that I WON on a Prize Patrol!  It’s called In Every Season – and it’s one that grabbed my eye the moment I saw it as I flipped thru the glorious pages of the catty!

Notice there are 12 flowers?  Perfect for a 12-month calendar. Or a sampler.  Or an inchie card!

I used one of the flowers – and a sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set (carrying over!) – plus some ombre sponging to make my card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Free Shipping Flash Sale!

Happy Friday, y’all.  Hope it’s been a good week for you and that you’re looking forward to the weekend!

In my line of work, we deal a lot in BLUFs.

Bottom Line Up Front.

So – giving it to you straight.  BLUF:  no card today, ya’ll!

Nope.  Yesterday was long and I started it not feeling quite right.  And never really got right as the day went on.  By the time work loosened it’s clutches on me, I was just too not-right to even turn the light on on my desk.

So I decided to just let it go.  I did this post, took a bath and went to bed.  In the hopes that Friday would be better!

But – I did want to make it up to y’all a little.  So…I’m offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $50 – here’s the catch.  It’s TODAY only!   Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! This Little Piggy Video Sneak Peek

‘Sup, y’all!?  Hope you’re enjoying your weekend.  If you’ve been battling with Harvey, know that you’re all in my prayers.  Stay safe.

I know you know that this Sunday morning post is typically a sneak peek of the card we’ll do tonight on my Facebook Live video!

And today is no exception.  I feel pretty confident that you can figure out what stamp set we’ll be using – if the title of the post didn’t give it away.  This Little Piggy is just too cute – and the card we’re going to do is headed to a friend of mine’s daughter.  Who loves pigs.  And has also been thru the wringer these past few days, weeks and months.  I hope this card will bring her a smile!  Take a look-see:

This Little Piggy Went Swimmng - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

I think you’ll have fun with this one, so I hope you can join me tonight at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB Page.  Here’s a link right to that!

Bundle #1:  The Painted Autumn Deluxe – everything you need to start making cards from the minute it arrives at your door.  This bundle is $99 and includes free shipping (I can only ship to the US, folks!), free tax and a free goody!  Buying it all separately (including shipping, tax and your Free Goody!) would be about $125 (sorta depends on how much you’d give Uncle Sam!!).

Painted Autumn Deluxe Bundle

Here’s what’s included in the $99 Deluxe Bundle:

  • Painted Harvest Bundle (stamp and Leaf Punch) – this is a photopolymer stamp set
  • Painted Autumn DSP Pack
  • Four “Fall-flavored” Classic Stamp Pads (Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso and Garden Green)
  • Painted Autumn Card Stock Pack
  • 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon
  • Touches of Nature Elements Pack
  • Very Vanilla Note Cards And Envelopes Pack
  • Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine  
  • FREE Jute Twine OR Black Rhinestone Jewels  

Bundle #2:  The Painted Autumn Basic – this one’s for you if you already have all the ink pads that you need to make gorgeous Fall cards.  This one is $76 and still gets free shipping and tax and a free goody!  The total cost if you bought them separately would be around $100.

Painted Autumn Basic Bundle

Here’s what’s included in the $76 Basic Bundle:

  • Painted Harvest Bundle (stamp and Leaf Punch) – this is a photopolymer stamp set
  • Painted Autumn DSP Pack
  • Painted Autumn Card Stock Pack
  • 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon
  • Touches of Nature Elements Pack
  • Very Vanilla Note Cards And Envelopes Pack

So – seems like a pretty good deal, huh?  

As a further enticement – the September Online Tutorial (I’ll send this tutorial to you in September when you order either bundle) features this wonderful new suite.  And I promise you’re going to want to have the whole shootin’ match on hand so you can make those projects.  

Need more enticement?  How about Double Peppermint Points for everyone who orders one of these bundles? So…do the math – that’s 8 peppermints for the Deluxe (yes, I’ll round up a little on this bigger bundle!) and 6 for the Basic.  Remember, when you collect 16 peppermints, you’ll get a free $40 gift from me! 🙂

Double Peppermints
How do you get in on the fun?  Well – fill out the form below.  As soon as I get your order, I’ll blast you a PayPal invoice.  Then I’ll place the order on the 1st and your goodies will be on their way!  Easy.
And also peasy! 🙂

Hope you’ll take advantage of this deal – it’s good only thru the end of the day on the 31st!  That would be next Thursday, just in case you’re not closely monitoring the imminent arrival of the new 2017 Holiday Catalog on Friday, 1 Sept! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix  

 

Do you like turnips?

We like turnip greens with some turnip in them.

We probably won’t ever be found eating straight up turnips.

It’s just not something we’d do.

If you’re a mashed turnip lover…I’m sorry.  To each his own, I suppose.

We grew a bed’s worth of turnips – and harvested them on Saturday morning.  To start the cleaning process, we dumped them all in an old trough and filled it with water.

IMG_4424

Well.  Finn thought that was the bomb.

Or the…bob.

As in bobbing for turnips….

When we found a bad turnip – we’d pull the greens off and toss the turnip.

Which he promptly chased and brought back.  Kinda defeating the purpose, heh??

A Stamps-N-Lingers Painted Autumn Bundle Flash Sale and Ordering Special

Good mornin’, y’all!  I don’t have a new card for you today – I’ve got something even better!  

If you’ve been following along, you’ve seen me do several cards using all or some of the most wondrous Painted Autumn suite of goodies – the centerpiece of which is the Painted Harvest Stamp Set with it’s pretty sentiments and the matching Leaf Punch.  It’s all accented by the gorgeous Painted Autumn DSP.

Look around Pinterest – and you’ll see even more marvelous samples!  I think it’s going to be the “it” suite when the catty goes live on 1 Sept.  You’re going to want everything in the suite!

When the Annual Catalog was released earlier this year, I offered a couple of fun 2017-2019 In Color bundles.  Those were really well received – and I’ve had folks ask me if I was going to do anything similar for the Holiday Catalog.

Well – the answer is…yes!  And they’ll feature the Painted Autumn Suite and coordinating goodies.

I’ve designed two great possible bundles for you.  Check them out!

Bundle #1:  The Painted Autumn Deluxe – everything you need to start making cards from the minute it arrives at your door.  This bundle is $99 and includes free shipping (I can only ship to the US, folks!), free tax and a free goody!  Buying it all separately (including shipping, tax and your Free Goody!) would be about $125 (sorta depends on how much you’d give Uncle Sam!!).
