Stampin’ Up! First Sight For The New Two

Good morning – I hope that you’re enjoying your week!  It’s almost over.  Be brave!

This weekend, my best friend is getting married in Nebraska.  My hubs and I aren’t going to be able to get there for it – and I’m sad about that.  But, it is what it is, and I know she understands why.  As a consolation prize, I’ve made her a batch of chocolate dipped Espresso Chocolate Chip Biscotti.  Which she asks me for every time I see or talk to her!  Their wedding invitation said “No Gifts” (this is a second marriage for them both) but I figure cookies isn’t really a gift….right? 😉

And – of course, I made her a wedding card!

I used the pretty wedding-oriented stamp set called For the New Two and a little Timeless Textures.  And First Sight, also from the Occasions catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! First Sight Thanks Kindly

Well, it’s Wednesday again.  And I’m back with another card – blogging it while I watch the lightning flash outside and listen to the rumble of thunder.  And hope my sweet kitty Katy isn’t scared!

Oh.  Did I not tell you about Katy??  Well, she’s my little tuxedo girl…

…she and her brother have lived with us since they were about 7 weeks old.  That’s when I scooped them up out of a rain drain – on the 4th of July in 2003.  Leo (her brother) was sitting with a couple of kids on the edge of the street.  I saw him as I drove by (I see them all – it’s kind of my curse) and worried about what those kids might do to him.  You know – kids.  4th of July.  Black kitten.

I went back to my apartment.  I paced.  I tried to talk myself out of it.  After all, I had my older kitty, Toe – and we were quite happy.  Me.  Wayne.  One cat.  Nice dynamic.

I picked up the cat carrier and a bag of Tender Vittles and returned to the scene.

45 minutes later – I’ve got Leo.  I’ve got Katy – she was way hidden – she’s always been the skittier of the two.  The kids think I’m a cat whisperer – cuz they hadn’t been able to catch either one of them!  I started to figure out how to find them a home.

So here we are thirteen years later. 😉

Katy hadn’t been doing well – so we finally pulled up our big girl panties (well, I did – Wayne….??) and managed to catch her and get her in the carrier and to the vet.  She needed teeth work.  Bad!

Today was the big day.  We went to pick her back up and discovered the extent of her surgery.  BIG.  Decided to leave her another night so they can manage her pain.  And give her another shot of antibiotic tomorrow.  Before we start with the twice daily pill routine.  Like that’ll ever work!

Hence – I’m worrying about her being by herself, not feeling good.  Scared of the the thunder. 🙁

So – I distracted myself by making a card – cuz sitting here worrying won’t help anyway – and she’s probably still pretty zorked (yes, that’s what the vet said!) by the anesthesia, so she’s probably sound asleep.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 😉  I think she probably is, don’t you?

The card I made to distract myself uses the pretty Occasions stamp set called First Sight.  I combined some paper from Love Blossoms and a sentiment from One Big Meaning.  And I ended up with a card that’s sweet as a chocolatier’s confection.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Love At First Sight

Happy Hawmp Day!  Three more days till I’m homeward bound – trying to get ahead on cards so I can ship stuff home!  Yikes.

My card today is a reprise of a layout I did last week – even uses the same framelits, the awesome Botanical Builder.  But, the color scheme is wildly different and the purpose of the card quite blatantly Valentine’s Day – to which end I used the First Sight stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Heart Forever

Good 50th-Super-Bowl-morning!  I’ll make the assumption that you’re prepping your Game Day goodies for all the fans in your house.  I mean – isn’t that what everyone is doing?  I don’t watch a lot of football, it’s true.  But I almost never miss the Super Bowl.  I admit to liking the commercials – but I also enjoy the game itself.  I seldom care much one way or the other who wins – although I’ve always picked someone to root for by half-time! – but this year, with the Broncos playing, I feel a familial obligation to root for the them.  I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like Tom Brady, though.  They’re both really super QB’s – so I’m thinkin’ it’s gonna to be a rockin’ game! 🙂

This is a quick card – it looks harder by far than it is.  And aren’t those the very best kind?  It uses the gorgeous new Bloomin’ Heart Bundle, a couple of sentiments from the First Sight stamp set and some cardstock.  Easy.  Take a look-see:
