Happy Sunday, y’all! Winter is giving one (I HOPE!) last gasp here in GA – it is…COLD! And windy. And…COLD! Did I already say cold? The wind has been blowing – think I saw a woozle go by a little bit ago – or maybe it was a heffalump. It was moving too fast to know for sure! Finn and the girls are fine but…we’re less than thrilled. I’m just SURE that Spring is coming! Fingers crossed!
My card today is another one that shows off the versatility of the By The Bay DSP – it is NOT just for nautical cards. I paired it with the newly re-stocked (YEAH!) Dainty Delight bundle and the often-overlooked Covered in Sunshine stamp set. Take a look-see:
Good morning and happy happy Hawwmp Day! Hope the week is going well for you – and if you’re on either coast – hoping that your weather looks better today than it has so far this week! Yikes!
My card today goes back to the pretty…err…BEAUTIFUL!…Beautiful Thistle stamp set and dies! I’ve used it before – but this time I went with more traditional thistle colors! I paired it with a little bit of By The Bay 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see:
UPDATE on FRIDAY, 3 Feb 23: So….apparently, when I was adding the PDF tutorial last night – I somehow managed to delete 90% of the post instructions! 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️ I have no idea how – and JUST realized it! Open the PDF (the link is actually right in the MIDDLE of the post 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️) and all the directions for making this card are right there – just without…all my extraordinarily witty commentary! 😉 Sorry, guys!! 🙁
Good morning and happy…Friday! I’m a little off my days this week – Miss Sonya cleaned yesterday (thank goodness!) instead of today so…I spent all day yesterday thinking it was FRIDAY! But it wasn’t. 🤷♀️
When we went to Maui, we did some snorkeling, which was wonderful! Wayne and Lance, though, ALSO went S.C.U.B.A. diving and saw some sea turtles – the pictures were pretty awesome (but..I wish I hadn’t been so claustrophobic in the mask/tank thingy and could have gone, too!). And I know I’ve been pretty reticent about my love of Maui…or..not. So – the Sea Turtle set, when it was released in the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini, caught my eye right away! I pulled it out today and found a couple of good sentiments in the Happy Labels stamp set to go with! Take a look-see:
Good morning on DAY 1 of 2023!! Did y’all make it to midnight?! Did you party hearty?
Does anyone even SAY Party Hearty anymore? 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
We did not. To either question. Are you shocked?? Y’all know me pretty well, so I’m betting you’re not even a little surprised!!
I’ve got the black eyed peas soaking and will pull some greens out of the freezer – so we’ll have THAT little business taken care of. And we have a ham that we’re going to smoke with some new rub and glaze that sounds yummy. So…we’ll start 2023 off with a bang! Hope you’ve got YOUR greens and peas ready to go, too!
The card I made today is not a Happy New Year card. That horse has left the barn, y’all! 😉 It’s a sympathy card – no, I didn’t have a need for one, but…it’s never a bad thing to have on hand! It features the pretty Seaside Bay bundle with the coordinating By the Bay 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see!
Good morning and Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend is going well. Ours is…going! 🤷♀️🤷♀️
One of the new suites coming on 5 Jan 2023 – in the Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog – is called By The Bay – and it’s one that caused a breakout of ooohing and ahhhing by pretty much the entire room at our OnStage event in Jacksonville! So – it’s been “burning a hole” in my pocket, as it were. Today – I pulled it out! Well – technically YESTERDAY, but…you know what I mean! I used the Seaside Bay bundle and By The Bay Specialty DSP to make a very cool Triple Diamond Step Fun Fold. Take a look-see:
