Stampin’ Up! Totally Trees and Starlight Peace

Hey, y’all.  By the time you read this, I’ll be at the airport.  Or even already in Utah, depending on your schedule.  As I wrote this on Sunday evening, I’m as close to being ready to go as I can get until the clothes come out of the dryer.  And I’m stressing like crazy!

Not so much because of the trip, although it’s becoming more and more stressful for me.  Nope.  I’m worrying cuz…tomorrow….Mr. Finn-Chewie goes to be Tutored.  Wink.

The worst part is that in the morning he won’t get his run, won’t get any breakfast and won’t get the huge drink of water he always has first thing.  And I can’t even tell him why.  And when he comes home I won’t even be here.  And he won’t know why.  Or if I’ll be back.  Worst part of having a velcro dog is that it makes such a horrible rip when you leave them.

Okay.  That’s it.  No more maudlin crap.  Finn, in the way of puppies, knows of nothing amiss – so I’m not going to be a big ole sissy-la-la-wussy face.  Dogs get tutored every day and they get over it.  So I will, too.

We’ve been hooking his leash under the leg of the recliner (if he pulls that, then I’m buying a cart and we’re going to compete!).  So he lays on the living room, looking longingly at the cat bowls – knowing there’s a few little kernels left in them, and playing with his rope toy.  Until he falls asleep….

Yes – he’s sound asleep holding the rope toy in his mouth.  Seriously and ridiculously cute. 🙂

So I’ve been making all my cards for this next week and the one I made today is one of my favorites.  It’s Black and Metallic.  I used the Totally Trees stamp set, a little bit of Be Jolly, By Golly (get this one at 20% off TODAY only while Online Extravaganza is still on!), and a couple of die cuts.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Be Jolly, By Golly Peace on Earth

Good morning – hope you all had a great three-day weekend.  Gotta love starting the week on a Tuesday!  It’s already almost Hawwmp Day! 🙂

I used a stamp set today that I hadn’t played with yet – and it made short work of this pretty card.  Be Jolly, By Golly is a multi-purpose Christmas season stamp set – with stars and ornaments and several sentiments.  I combined Peace on Earth with a little Swirly Scribbles, added some Fancy Frost Specialty DSP, and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:
