Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wishes Just a Note

Good morning!  Well, it’s Sunday, so Amy and I are likely beginning the trek back to Joh-ja (that’s Georgia for you yanks!) as you’re reading this.  OnStage Live is done for 2016 – and….we found out right at the end that the next event – OnStage Local, this November – will have one venue in Atlanta!!  Now, that’s worthy of a whoo-hoo! No travel required!! 🙂  We were so happy to get this news!

We made sure to get our picture taken under the #Onstage2016 sign before we left.  I have no idea why I’m holding that flower stick like that! 😉

I’ve got a lot to share with you – starting tomorrow afternoon! Sneak peeks of the wonderful new catalog.  Expect a “regular” post from me in the morning and then a second post in the afternoon.  That second one will also contain the Retiring Products list and might even announce a new Stamps-N-Lingers ordering special!  So be watching your Inbox tomorrow, okay!?

My share for today is a clean and simple card that’s a little bit out of my wheelhouse – brighter colors and more….geometric-ness….than I usually use.  I borrowed a sentiment from the lovely Watercolor Wishes stamp set, and some Birthday Bouquet DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wishes Celebration….and a Black Lab…..

Last week, my friend Jan – Mom to the twins I carry on about all the time – told me she wanted to buy a birthday card for a friend of hers.  Her friend bought one of the female lab pups that Jan had bred several years ago.  Emma.  That’s the dog.  To be honest, I’m not sure of the human’s name – I know I’ve heard it, but….I’m a lot better at fur-people names, apparently!

So, I sent Jan a couple of pictures of cards I have in my stash – to see if any of them were what she was looking for.  This is the one she liked for her friend (click the picture if you want to see how to make to this version!):

But!  She wanted a dog instead of the flower (which, incidently, is fussy cut from the new Timeless Elegance DSP!).  Easy enough, I thought.  Except I didn’t have a dog stamp – well, I have a paw print stamp, which I ended up using.  But that wouldn’t do.  So, I went out to the keeper of all wisdom and knowledge in search of my quarry.  Google.  And found exactly what I needed!  How ’bout them apples?!?!

We decided to stick with the black and pink theme, and Jan tells me her friend is girly-girl-ish and bling’s the thing.  So that’s the direction I went!  Take a look-see:
