Stampin’ Up! Blooming Love Cottage Greetings Thanks

Happy Sunday, y’all – if you’ve come over from Amy’s blog – thanks for stopping by.  Hope you’ll spend a few minutes checking out my card for today – and that perhaps you’ll decide to become a “regular”! If you’re already a regular – thanks so much for electing to spend part of your day with me! 🙂

The card I made today features the beautiful rose image in Bloomin’ Love – a stamp set that was introduced to us in the 2016 Occasions Catalog and that’ll also be with us for the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  The sentiment comes from the Cottage Greetings set – which has some of the prettiest fonts going!  Take a look-see:

I was inspired to build this card by the challenge at The Card Concept, #56: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Moroccan Nights Sneak Peek and Cottage Greetings Shaker Card

It’s Saturday once again – Hallelujah!  And it’s a Saturday in my favorite season of the year!  It’s No-Heat-and-No-AC Season!  The windows are wide open and I can hear the birds and the frogs and the neighbor’s geese.  And the occasional truck or car on the road nearby – not my fave sound of nature, but it is what it is!  We get two No-Heat-and-No-AC seasons here in GA – the second one happens in the Fall!  Love ’em both. 🙂

My card today is another shaker card.  You’re probably thinking….seriously?  She figures out how to do one and has a cool new tool to make them easy – and that’s all she’s going to do?!?  Well, I promise this will be my last one for a month.  Okay – maybe a week.  But they’re just so cool!

This one didn’t start out as a shaker card, anyway.  But about half way thru, when I was making the sentiment – the lightbulb went on and it just made sense!  I used the brand new stamp set (so new you can’t even get it yet!) from the upcoming 2016-2017 Annual Catalog called Moroccan Nights.  Since I can’t get the Moroccan DSP yet, I paired it with the vibrantly colored Bohemian DSP – which is retiring on 31 May!  There’s a sentiment from Cottage Greetings and one from Sunburst Sayings, too – just to keep ya on yer toes! 🙂  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Playful Pals

Good Morning – it’s Friday again! Wow – time is just flying by, isn’t it? Only 5 more days until we leave for OnStage. End of the month is fast approaching as well, which will bring a trip to Savannah and the arrival of tomato and pepper plants – all ready for transplanting!  Hopefully not all at the same time! 🙂

Do y’all know about a company called Territorial Seeds?  If you like to garden and grow veggies in the summer (or fall or whenever!) this is a great source of seed and – what I love! – plants!  You can select when you want them to arrive, based on the best time for your neck of the woods.  Then they come all cozy in their packaging – some of the best I’ve ever seen – and they’re ready to harden off and plant.  This will be my third year using them (I get nothing from this – I just really like them!) and have had superb results every year.  Just throwin’ that out there! 🙂

So, the last time we had a meeting with Amy Koenders, she gave us all a little gift – like she always does!  This time around, I picked the Playful Pals stamp set, bundled with the Pyramid Pals Thinlits.  I finally decided to get it out and play with it.  I added some Botanical Gardens DSP and a flower from the Botanical Builder, and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

LOL, I love how the frog has a sort of goofy expression on his face – he’s obviously tickled for having snagged him a little snackerel – and maybe he even wants to present it to the birthday girl or boy as a special gift! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Greetings In the Meadow Silhouette and…Blog Candy!

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  Days are just flying by – one short week from today, Amy Koenders and I will be winging our way West to attend OnStage Live in Salt Lake!  Where we’re going to get to see the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  Yikes – can you believe it’s that time already?!?  That, of course, means it’s almost time to say good-bye to the current catalog and the 2016 Occasions Catalog – the retiring list will be released on 18 April (right after OnStage).  So, you’ll want to be thinking about getting stocked up!

Well, today was productive.  I updated my Inventory Spreadsheet, alphabetized my stamp sets, and got a new Office Chair!  Yeah!  It actually has padded parts – and it swivels.  And will roll – once I get one of those plastic mat things you put over the carpet.  Makes a huge difference over that wooden kitchen chair I’ve been sitting in.  It’s the little things, isn’t it?

So, the card I have to share with you today is a quick and easy, Clean and Simple birthday card, using one of my favorite Occasions stamp sets – In the Meadow.  And one of the pretty sentiments from Cottage Greetings.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Honeycomb Happiness Thanks!

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  We’re sitting here on Tuesday evening hoping that the severe weather stays south of us – nothing worse than tornadoes in the middle of the night!  The horses are all snug in their bedrooms – we’ll probably only get some wind and rain and a light-show – but I always feel better knowing they’re relatively safe in their steel-boned structure.  And they like the occasional night in! 🙂

Today’s share is an ice-cream colored confection for sure.  I used one last piece of my beautiful Birthday Bouquet DSP to inspire the colors for this card.  I used two stamp sets – the Sale-A-Bration set called Honeycomb Happiness, and the pretty Cottage Greetings set from the Annual Catalog.  Take a look-see:
