Morning’, y’all…I’m not even going to say my normal thing about it being Monday. You know it’s Monday and I know it’s Monday. So…yea. It’s Monday.
If you were able to join me last night on Facebook, I appreciate you taking some time with me on your Sunday! If not, then here’s a link to the video on YouTube in case you want to take a peek.
This card came about at the request of my mom. She’s got a friend who’ lived in the mountains for a long time and is having to move to Arizona to be closer to their children. And she’s not feeling very happy about the move! So…the request was for a mountainy theme card.
Smack in my wheelhouse!
One of the new stamp sets in the 2017 Holiday catalog is called Christmas Happiness.
If you know me at all, you know that this set caught my eye right away. Yes – pine boughs. Pine Cones. Add in Christmas lights – and you’ve got me!
But I didn’t need a Christmas card – I needed a you’re-going-away-you’ll-be-missed-and-I-wish-you-the-best card. So…I pulled in a little help from the Wild About Flowers stamp set. Add in some plaid paper from the new Merry Little Christmas DSP and this is what I came up with. Take a look-see:
My design is inspired by the sketch challenge at MFT Card Challenges – I just turned it on end! Continue reading
Mornin’, y’all! Happy Sunday – and I hope your weekend is going well!
I’ve spent part of Saturday trying to organize and price 3 years worth of Stampin’ Up! and non-Stampin’ Up! (mostly Tim Holtz goodies) in readiness for next Sunday’s All Things Stamping Sale. I’m trying to juggle my wish to not just give stuff away and my desire to get it gone! 🙂 And I have to keep the hubby sort of away….his desire to not give it away is far far stronger than his desire to get it gone. Which just shows ta go ya that he’s a way bigger pack rat than moi.
If you think you might want to come – let me know! I’ll send you a map.
So tonight, I’ll be live amidst my mess, and we’ll make a pretty little card I made for my Mom. It uses some new goodies from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, plus…well. You’ll see. 🙂 In fact – take a look-see at the sneaky peek!
Yes, it’s got pines…and pinecones…and a little bling…and I sort of love it! (she says modestly!).
So – 8pm Eastern. Right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page! Hope to see you then!

This is the last 2017 Tax Holiday weekend
Check to see if it’s YOUR State!
There are 13 US states having state sales tax holidays for school supplies. What does that mean for you? Stampin’ Up! products that fall under that category will be tax-free for a limited time! If you live in one of the lucky states (sorry – GA decided to opt out this year! 🙁 ), make sure to take advantage of the holiday.
Refer to this PDF to see which states are offering the holiday and relevant information for each state including holiday dates, products that qualify, and dollar limits per item.
You must place your order with Stampin’ Up! during the tax holiday period in order to receive these items tax-free (midnight on the first day to 11:59 PM on the last day of the tax holiday).

Finn makes it pretty clear each evening that he wants some lap time.
Not with his dad.
He knows that’s pretty much a dead-end! 🙂
But…Mom. Well. Mom is a lot more susceptible to “the look”.
It’s not easy to do a me/dog selfie – cuz it’s pretty critical to guard your mouth. See the tongue?!? It’s super fast. And super wet. And…I know where it’s been…. so I look like a goober and he just looks cute.
Sometimes I get lucky though…
