Well – it’s done. I’m officially in Savannah. And it’s officially hot as all get out here.
It actually went up from here to 102F. But at that point, my phone was just lying limply on the seat of the car, too hot to even care. 🙂
I was going to show you a picture of my packed Soul – which was also going to be my load-plan to get it all back home. My hubby can PACK A CAR. Like….seriously. But – hot. Too hot for photo ops – and I wanted to get back inside. So I forgot to take my load plan pictures. I drew a sketch. It probably won’t help. But I tried, okay?
I got everything unpacked and set up. It’s Deja Vu all over again…..
So – I’m cooking with gas and ready to rock! But…slowly and only inside. Cuz…hot!
On to the card for the day. It’s a selfie of Duck Duck. She got all dolled up and draped a pretty ribbon around her neck and…hitched herself to a wagon full of posies. Weird – I do not know where she got that wagon….And she asked me to make a card with the picture – so I did. And it seemed like the gorgeous host-exclusive set – Basket For You – was just the thing to complement her Chinese-goose self (yes, I’ve finally nailed down her….type). Take a look-see:
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:
Pretty, huh? Continue reading

I thought I’d share a fun little card with you today – it’s one that came into my head as soon as I saw the sketch challenge. I love when that happens – it makes things go so quickly. It’s especially nice when the idea in my head is actually something I can implement with paper and SU! tools. Doesn’t always happen that way…. 😉
This one uses the new Squares Layering Framelits – which I love! And I added some soon-to-leave us Birthday Bouquet DSP. I pulled the pretty sentiment banner from the new Host set called Basket For You. Take a look-see:
Here’s the sketch that inspired me – it’s from TGIF Challenges….TGIFC55: Continue reading
