Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
I decided to pull out some yummy Frosted Gingerbread (stamps, of course!), with the Gingerbread dies to match, and Candy Canes (again – STAMPS!) – and dive headlong into my fave color palette for the Christmas season. No non-traditional colors today! Take a look-see:
Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
I decided to go with a Christmas theme and pulled out an as-yet-uninked set – the Wishes & Wonder bundle – which includes the fun North Pole Wonder Dies. I added some “Tis the Season DSP and…a couple of berries from the Poinsettia Dies. Take a look-see:

Happy Monday, y’all! As we count down – FAST! – towards Christmas, I hope that you’re making your way thru the seemingly endless list of “to-do’s” to be “ready” for the big day!! And that you’re getting a little time to spend enjoying the season.
My card today truly celebrates the reason we have the season at all. And it comes to you from a beautiful Retiring stamp set in the 2019 Holiday Catalog, called Light & Peace. Take a look-see:
‘Sup, y’all! How did the Fall-Back go for you? It’s 7am here. But really 8. So – you should be wide-awake and perky! Your dogs and cats and ponies are looking at you like – what the HECK!! – but…YOU got an extra hour of sleep.
Regardless – we’re in it now until Spring. Bleh.
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your last evening in Daylight Savings Time with me! If not, but you’d like to watch the replay – here ’tis on YouTube!
The project we did last night is quite timely, since we’re plunging headlong into Gift Card Giving Season (GCGS). I like giving gift cards – I do! – but…they always seem a little like I phoned it in. So…I feel BETTER about it if I can present them in a beautiful and/or clever gift card holder. And this one is both! With the gorgeous Christmas Rose stamp set and bundled Rose Dies, atop wunnermus Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! If not – but you’d like to see how to make these fun decorations, here’s the replay. 🙂
A customer – and friend! – asked me about using Vellum and battery tea lights with the Mini Curvy Keepsake dies. She also asked about using the Delicata inks on the Vellum. So…I did it all – and made some Christmas and wedding/anniversary decorations. Take a look-see:

Morning, y’all! Happy Monday! I, for one, am hoping that we woke up to some sunshine and a little warmth today. The entire weekend was entirely too yucky for us – wet and nasty. It was the kind of weekend where you just wanted to roll over and stay in bed. Maybe with some kind soul bringing a cup of hot chocolate. And maybe a cookie.
Or twelve! 😉
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If not, but would like to see how to make the pop-up gift card holder we worked on, here’s the replay! Oh – and the last 30 minutes is all 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs Sneak Peeks! Just sayin!
Good morning! Winter has struck again here in GA – it was nasty last night! Bleh. Cold and rainy and…well…NASTY! I even brought the horses back in a few hours early so they’d start to get dry before the temps really dropped. Even the girls were ready to come in!
Since it’s Sunday and I’m home – we’ll get together tonight at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a little video! And we’re going to make a fun-fold that’s just perfect for Christmas time giving! Take a sneaky-peak!
Happy happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!! About this time next week we’ll be done with the “hard” part of the test and will be in cruise control mode to the end! We’ll be back to “regular” hours and weekends completely off! And – I’ll be only about a week and a half from heading home! Whoo-hooo! 🙂
So – couple of things before we get going. First: it’s time to be thinking about 2018 Holiday Catalog Shares! I’ve got mine open and welcome you to take a look-see and get signed up! Check out all the details and find a form for signing up right here. Second: today’s the last day to get entered to win the Pqper Pumpkin Blog Candy! Click right here to get your name in the mix!
Okay – so. While we were on the cruise, we got a great sneak peek at a few of the products in the new 2018 Holiday Catalog. One of the things they showed us is the Timeless Tidings Project Kit. Every demo in the room oooh’d or ahhh’d when this one came up. Oh my – it is SO beautiful! Take a look-see:
Good Monday! So…this is the next-to-last 12-hour Monday for me. After the next one, we should go back to “regular” (to include actually taking the weekend off – gasp!) so that will be a relief. I’m not as wired for this kind of schedule as I used to be. 12 hour day? Got it. Five in a row? Cool – can do it in my sleep. FIFTEEEN days in a row? Not so easy any more.
But – I can do anything for 2 more weeks, so…this too shall pass. I’ll be glad, though, to get back to having a little time and a lot more creative energy to make cards. I have a lot of “wanna” when I get to the hotel at night, but…not a lotta “DO”!
Fortunately, one of the goodies that arrived in my pre-order was a Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack. I used a few goodies from that, along with a large Poppy Parade Santa’s Workshop Card and Envelope from the pack we got as a free give-away on the Cruise. And not one ink pad was opened in the making of this card! Take a look-see:
