Finn-Fan Fix…

I didn’t realize exactly what he was trying to tell me the other night with this look….

We were putting the girls out to spend the night stuffing their faces and tucking Bo in his bedroom with the rest of his dinner.

Finn pulls up in front of me…

When we got back in the house, I went back to writing a blog post and Wayne hit the shower.

Finn is with me in the living room while I type away.  He climbs the steps next to my chair and puts his hand on my leg.  And whines.

I say….no, Finn-y, we can’t do that, Mom’s gotta to work.  Not sure why I refer to myself in the third person…?

Wayne hears me and says – come on in here, Finn!

Surprisingly….he goes! 👀😮

He was – apparently! – ready for bed.  Too hot.  Too tired.  Just needed his house, his two mini-milk-bone go-to-bed treats, and the fan pointed on him.

By the time I got done, he was sawing lags.

Sometimes the great weariness just overcomes a kid and he just has to go to bed.

Know what I mean?

Stampin’ Up! Moroccan Botanicals Thank You

Good Morning on this Memorial Day Monday!  I wanted to take a hot second before getting to today’s card to share a Thank You that I made in honor of this day.

Chalk Lines Memorial Day Shaker 4 - Stamps-N-LingersChalk Lines Memorial Day Shaker 3 - Stamps-N-Lingers

As the song says – All Gave Some and Some Gave All.  This day we remember those who gave all in defense of our freedom and the way of life we enjoy here in this great country!  Say a prayer for them today – and for those still with us who are serving still, that they may not join the ranks of those who gave all. 🙂

Now – the card I made today is another Thank You – but one that goes a whole different direction!  I used the new – on Wednesday! – Moroccan Nights stamp set and the pretty Botanical Builder Framelits.  Take a look-see:

Moroccan Botanicals Thank You 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I played along with two design sketches for this card – the first drove the layout.  Freshly Made Sketches #238: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Blooming Love Cottage Greetings Thanks

Happy Sunday, y’all – if you’ve come over from Amy’s blog – thanks for stopping by.  Hope you’ll spend a few minutes checking out my card for today – and that perhaps you’ll decide to become a “regular”! If you’re already a regular – thanks so much for electing to spend part of your day with me! 🙂

The card I made today features the beautiful rose image in Bloomin’ Love – a stamp set that was introduced to us in the 2016 Occasions Catalog and that’ll also be with us for the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  The sentiment comes from the Cottage Greetings set – which has some of the prettiest fonts going!  Take a look-see:

Blooming Love Cottage Greetings 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I was inspired to build this card by the challenge at The Card Concept, #56: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree for a Simple Single Stamp Set Saturday

Good Saturday morning, y’all!  I hope you’re enjoying your Memorial Day long-weekend – if you’re traveling, be safe!  And take a few minutes this weekend to remember the reason we celebrate, okay?

My card today is a quick and easy one, and you only need one stamp set to make it!  The fun and versatile Sheltering Tree – from the current catalog – is all that’s needed to make this one.  Take a look-see:

Sheltering Tree Thankful For You 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I started by stamping the Sheltering Tree tree image in Crumb Cake in the center of the Whisper White card stock panel.  For the leaves, I used Watermelon Wonder – which I stamped off once before putting it on the card.  My Watermelon Wonder is really juicy – so depending on how your pad is, you might want to stamp it straight – it’s up to you!  The second layer of leaves is done in Daffodil Delight – not stamped off first, just straight!

Stampin’ Up! Awesomely Artistic Layered Love Easel

Happy Friday!  And happy it truly is – cuz I’m at the hotel, jus’ sleepin’ in ma bed!  At least I hope I am – or at least laying in it doing a bunch of nothing!  This has been a….loooooonnnggg week, y’all – and I’m flat tuckered.  This long weekend has been the beacon of hope – the light at the end of the first part of the tunnel.  Four beautiful days off.  Oh.  My.  Goodness. 😉

This card for today is another easel card.  I apologize for the quick duplication – but…my friend here asked me for a card (short notice!) for his wife.  He/they are moving across the country and she’s leaving her teaching job in CA.  He wanted a card to give her.  When I ask him what he wanted to say…he kind of looked blank.  After some prompting, he wants to tell her that he loves her and that he’s grateful for all she does.

Awwww.  That’s totally sweet – even if he needed a little “help” to get there!  Yea – he vacuums and cleans the house, too – he’s one of the good guys!  So, I really wanted it to be special for him and be a bit of a “wow” card – so the easel card made sense to me.  And since it’s so easy…well.  It was a no-brainer.  

I also had the perfect sentiment in mind – from the new (it’s almost here, folks!  Wednesday!!) stamp set called Layered Love.  And One Big Meaning also has a great sentiment.  I pulled Awesomely Artistic for the beautiful images.  Take a look-see:

Awesomely Artisitc Layered Love 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers

So – the easel is just a secondary piece of the card!  The Awesomely Artistic flowers definitely take front and center. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Painter’s Palette Fun-Fold Card!

Happy Hawwwmp Day!  The week is half over.  Or…considering that I have Friday off – it’s Over-The-Hawwmp Day!  And I have the weekend off.  And Monday!  So…I am totally psyched to have 4 entire days – in a ROW! – to rest and sleep and make cards and maybe….join 3 million of my closest friends to eat at The Olde Pink House again….  and – did I mention sleeping? 😉

Today’s card is really fun.  And so ridiculously easy that if you haven’t ever made one – the second that you see the “trick” you’ll be all “why the heck didn’t I do that sooner??”  I used a couple of stamp sets on this one….Painter’s Palette (new on 1 June), Suite Sayings, and Watercolor Words.  Take a look-see:

Painters Palette Easel Card 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers

So – before I show you the innards, let’s talk about the front, okay?  I started by SNAILing a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to a Flirty Flamingo mat. And then to a Basic Black mat.

Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Flora Super Simple Notecard

Hey hey, there, y’all!  Hope your week is going well so far.

My share for today is so simple – both in appearance and make-ability that I’m almost embarrassed to show it to you.  But – I will, cuz, for all that, it’s also really pretty!  I used the Fabulous Flora stamp set – which is another of the host-exclusive stamp sets available in the upcoming catalog.  

Fabulous Flora Host set - Stamps-N-Lingers

And I added just the tiniest bit of Timeless Textures!  Take a look-see:

Fabulous Flora Notecard 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

See what I mean?  I didn’t even use an inner liner or an envelope liner on this one – shut the front door!  Where’s Mary and what have you done with her??! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Remarkable You Thoughts & Prayers Sympathy

Hello to y’all on this Monday morning!  By the time this post goes live, I’ll have been at work for almost 2 hours.  Which is fairly disgusting, really, don’t you think?  But, apparently a lot of folks here go to work at the hind-end crack of dawn – the other day, I was mystified by how many people were on the road with me.  And by how many of them wanted to race down the dark two-lane highway at like….a thousand miles an hour!  Craziness!

So – before I went to bed at 7 last night – only a slight exaggeration! – I got this card together for y’all.  I used the beautiful floral images in the Remarkable You stamp set.  I’d originally planned this to be a thank-you card, but….I really felt the need to make a sympathy card.  To that end, I pulled out Thoughts & Prayers again.  Take a look-see:

Remarkable You Thoughts & Prayers 3 - Stamps-N-Lingers

The design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, #237: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Basket For You Get Well

Good morning, y’all.  I’m sitting here on Saturday night writing this post, listening to Home Free on YouTube – watching a storm gather outside the window.  I’ve had a good day – resting, making cards, resting some more!  I hope that wherever you’re reading this – your weekend is going swimmingly! 🙂

My card today uses a beautiful Host-Exclusive stamp set that will be available on 1 June.  You know that means you need to host a workshop in order to be able to get this beautiful set.  One way to do that would be to sign up for my Online Host Club!  Then you could order it in your Host month!  Just sayin’…..  scroll on down for the details and snap up one of those last spots! 🙂  

The stamp set I’m referring to is called Basket For You, and it’s the focal point of this card.  I added a sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers and this is what I ended up with.  Take a look-see:

Basket For You Get Well 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers

Pretty, huh? Continue reading

As befits a quiet, restful weekend, my card today is quick and easy!  And you only need one stamp set and some paper.  And you can get that stamp set on 1 June – which is approximately…..tomorrow!

Not really.  But danged close to it – only a week and a half before the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog goes live!  And in just one week – if I get just a couple more folks – the next Online Host Club will begin!!

So today’s card uses a stamp set called Perfectly Wrapped.  Add in some Cherry on Top and Everyday Chic DSP, and….this is what you get.  Take a look-see:
