Mornin’, my peeps! Hope your weekend is going well! Mine started out great – on Friday! – with the arrival of my housekeeper! She has recovered from her broken knee and been cleared to work by her physician! I am very happy that she’s better – I mean, broken KNEE! Yikes! She’s one of the hardest working ladies I know and I know it’s been hard on her being sidelined. Oh – and I suspect it’s been hurting like crazy! So – it’s good that she’s recovered as well as she has!
Finny was…beyond ECSTATIC to have her back! He was gyrating from nose to wiggler for about 30 minutes!
His MOTHER was also beyond ECSTATIC at the prospect of a perfectly clean house – SHE was wiggling from nose to toes on the INSIDE! 😉
My card for today is a quick and easy little number that lets some beautiful All My Love DSP just shine thru! I added in some sentiments from the Lovely Flowers and Meant To Be sets, plus a few little die cuts. Take a look-see:
Mornin’, folks! Hope your week is going well! We’ve had a heckuva cold front come thru – no snow or precipitation, but…BRRR!! Guess it’s officially winter-in-the-south. Sure did enjoy those 3 and a half hours of Fall… 😉
I’ve got a sneak peek of a lovely suite in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. It’s called the All My Love suite and it’s got two beautiful bundles – the Meant to Be and Be Mine Stitched Framelits bundle – and the Forever Lovely and Lovely Flowers Edgelit dies (all of which will be available on 3 Jan 19!). My card today uses the first bundle and some of the All My Love DSP. Take a look-see:

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! Hope you’ve got a little something fun and romantic planned, if that’s your thing. If not, and you tend to think of your significant other as your Valentine every day, then…today’s card will be right up your alley!
I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and two new goodies from the second Sale-A-Bration release (coming on Friday, 16 Feb!) – the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP and the wondrous Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF. And with all these fun tools, I made a clean and simple Valentine’s card for you. Take a look-see:

Happy Tuesday, folks – and welcome to another edition of the Stamp Ink Paper challenge!
We had a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week – one of my favorites! In honor of Valentine’s Day (it’s tomorrow, in case you’ve lost track!) I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and the Sure Do Love You bundle. On top of some of my fave DSP – the Wood Textures DSP. Take a look-see:
In case you want to play along – and why wouldn’t you?!? – here’s the Stamp Ink Paper #137 Tic-Tac-Toe board. I went right down the middle column – what will you create!? 🙂 Continue reading
Happy Friday, y’all! The week is drawing to a close and, for me, it’s doing it from Huntsville! Found out on Wednesday that I had to come over here the next day to get my computer updated and pick up my new work phone. So – typing this post on Thursday evening from my hotel in Huntsville. Will head home Friday afternoon!
Got some fun plans for tomorrow – a friend and I are going to a StampNStorage pop-up sale on the north side of Atlanta! 20% off everything AND 30% off Magnetic cards! And we can walk right out with them. Whoo-hoo!
Now – my card for you today has no stamping! A little bit of ink from a Stampin’ Blend – but…no stamps were inked in the making of this card! Just some pretty Painted With Love DSP, the Sweetheart TIEF (Annual Catalog), the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (be prepared to see a lot of this one, y’all! And – BE READY TO GET IT NEXT WEEK!!) and some die cuts from the pretty Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. Take a look-see:
I was playing along with the theme challenge from The Paper Players this week. Continue reading

Hey guys! It’s Friday again! I’m starting a petition – all work weeks should be 4 days and all weekends should be three! I mean – who decided in the first place that it would be 5/2? 4/3 is sooooo much better!!
I got my January Paper Pumpkin the other day – it’s called Heartfelt Love Notes – and once I opened it, I was ready to get at it!
This kit made SIXTEEN really cute little note cards – with slide-in cards for writing your message. And Kraft envelopes. Love! Continue reading
Mornin’, y’all! It’s Saturday – and a three-day weekend, at that! Whoo-hoo! Hope you’ve got something fun planned – and that the weather wherever you are is conducive to whatever you have planned! Ours is rainy – wet – and getting cold again. So…yeah!?
