Well, it’s happened. I’ve got projects to share stockpiled on my desk. We’re done with our project. There’re no more excuses. All that’s left is to tape together boxes, load them up and get them to the post office tomorrow. And then I’m out on Saturday! I do have to keep reminding myself that I have tomorrow to pack and mail and mentally prepare. You’d think I’d be extra anxious to leave and get home, but…I’m not all that comfortable with changes. It’s forever been true for me that I’m better at being gone than I am at getting gone. It’s why I do 3 – 4 month trips versus a couple of weeks and then home and then back and then home…. I nest up. I get comfy where I am and in the routine du jour. Switching it up….yuk.
But, tomorrow it’s time – and, truthfully, once I start the process and get into it – all will be well. It’s funny, I can almost feel my brain make the transition from being “here” to being “there”. I can’t predict when it will happen – but I’ll all of a sudden realize, sometime between right this second and getting on the plane on Sunday….I’m ready to be home!
And that probably falls into the TMI category, and what-the-heck-is-she-talking-about-why-doesn’t-she-get-on-with-the-card!! 😉 Sorry.
So, for today, I have a card that leans heavily on some of the beautiful papers and stamps in the Sale-a-Bration flyer. Wildflower Fields DSP is some of the prettiest paper I’ve seen. I’ve combined it with another of the free goodies in the SAB – Botanicals For You. Add in the ever-versatile One Big Meaning, from the Annual Catalog and a little Botanical Garden Designer Vellum and….take a look-see:
On to the business at hand! I hope that your weekend is going well. I succeeded in sleeping all the way to 8am this morning! Whoo-hoo! Now, on Saturday night, I’m trying to stay up late to start getting into the schedule for next week. It’s some kind of swing/mid hybrid. Leave at 1:15pm or so and get back 12 hours later. Y-U-K! But there it is – and, in fact, it is what it is, so…. 🙂
I made a couple more cards to share with my stamper ladies this afternoon. This one is a Valentine’s Day card that uses the Botanicals For You set (from the Sale-A-Bration flyer – you can only get it as a free item with a $50 or better order!) and the Sky Is the Limit set – also a Sale-A-Bration item. This set is only available until the 15th of February, so if you love it, you need to jump on it right quick! Take a look-see:

Here we are with the first Happy Stampers Blog Hop of 2016! We’re all having fun with Sale-A-Bration (I really REALLY love free stuff – and there’s a LOT of it to be had right now!) and stamping and creating with our goodies – new and not-so-new! I hope that you’ll take a minute to hop thru the hop and tell everyone what you think of their projects!
Today’s hop centered around a sketch Challenge. Here’s where we started!
I decided to work with some of my very favorite new items from the Sale-A-Bration flyer. Wildflower Fields DSP and the coordinating Flowering Fields stamp set. I got both of them free with a $50 order (well, one for each $50 order, of course!). And they’re so pretty – take a look-see:

Happy Sunday – hope that your day-after-Christmas was fun and safe. Did anyone go see Star Wars? We haven’t had a chance to go yet, but my brother tells me it’s awesome! Considering that I saw the original – yes, about a thousand years ago! – like 10 times….I can’t wait to see it. If you haven’t seen it yet, he recommends seeing it in the largest screen you can! 🙂
My card share for today is another sneak peek at the coming-soon-in-the-2016-Occasions-Catalog Botanical Builder Framelits. I also used some of the Botanicals For You and the Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack. Those two items are in the Sale-A-Bration flyer – we’ll talk about that at the end of the post. When I combined those new products with some Kraft Corrugated Paper, here’s what I came up with. Take a look-see:

Good morning! Thanks to all who came to visit yesterday and sent some time hopping around the blog-isphere with the Happy Stampers – we appreciate you taking the time! 🙂
As I promised on Wednesday, today’s share uses the stamp set called Botanicals For You – which complements the Occasions Catalog Botanical Gardens Suite – and the Flowering Fields stamp set. Both of these great sets are in the Sale-A-Bration catalog coming in January. Oh – and, did I mention you could get them for the whopping price of….free?!?!
It’s a seriously quick and easy card. Take a look-see:
Pretty, huh? Hang on – the directions are beyond easy!
