Stampin’ Up! Every Blessing and a Flurry of Wishes for You

We have a grass carp.  Well, probably more than one.  But, in our back pond – there’s just one.  It’s a pretty new pond, you see.  Not a lot of vegetation.  And kind of seasonal.  So we only put one grass carp back there.

Tonight, while the horses were eating, we took a ride down to the back pond.  To check on the grass carp’s welfare.  Please note – we haven’t named the grass carp.  That would be weird.

We noticed a significant lack of….well….grass!  Which immediately caused us consternation and concern.  What to do?  We’re not really sure what a grass carp might eat other than grass.  Maybe some hay?  Some chaff?  Chaff is chopped up hay and a little molasses (our old guy gets that to supplement his other feed).  Perhaps some ragweed?  We gathered up some of each and carefully threw it into the pond.

We don’t want our un-named grass carp to starve.  Obviously.  He’s the only one in the pond.  Do you think he thinks he’s on some barren planet somewhere at the end of a portal (yes, I’ve been watching Marvel – Agents of Shield!)?  Do grass carp think?

It’s not weird to worry about your grass carp.  Right?


Anywho – on to why you stopped by!

I deviated from my normal A2 size card for today’s share.  This one is 5″ x 7″ overall.  I needed that much room to execute the design.  Which was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #292.  Head over there to see what everyone has made, okay?

SSSC 292I used the pretty Every Blessing stamp set – from the Annual Catalog – some flurries of snow from Flurry of Wishes, and a few Lucky Stars!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Fall Festival and a Flurry of Wishes Make-and-Take

Good morning – today’s share is quick and easy.  And quick.  Cause I’m whooped tonight – been a long week, crossing too many time zones in too short a time.  Looking forward to Sunday doing a whole lotta nuthin’!! 🙂

The Fall Festival was very nice – lots of nice folk walking around.  A few stopped and made themselves a little Christmas gift tag – which you’ll see in just a minute!  Sold a card or two, and made a lot of contacts.  Met several nice ladies who love Stampin’ Up! and went home with catalogs.  So…good day all around!

Also met a nice man who sells Pampered Chef – kind of unusual, but cool to see a guy in that business.  I’d forgotten how many great products that company has (I sold Pampered Chef many MANY years ago!).  I’m now trying to figure out how to do a Facebook show or an online show of some sort.  Anyone want in? 😉

I thought my booth ended up looking really good – thanks Amy Koenders for lending me the tablecloths and the cute window display.   What do you think?

Stampin’ Up! Flurry of Wishes Let it Snow!

Happy Monday – the biggest oxymoron going, huh!?  I am of the opinion that no one really likes Monday – no matter what it is you have to do on Monday.  I work from home.  And yet – on Sunday afternoon – I get the Sunday afternoon blues.  What’s up with that? 🙂

Today’s share is a winter-y card full of wishes for winter snow.  Here in the A-T-L, snow is a seldom-seen phenomenon.  And when it DOES snow….well, let’s just say it’s way better to just stay at the house!  Cause A-T-L-ians really don’t drive in the snow so good.  But, they THINK they can……..this is what happens….


This was in The Great Snow Storm of 2014.  Like I said – if you’re ever in Atlanta and it snows, snuggle down at home!

But, snow is fun and pretty (as long as it leaves in a few days!) and so, when winter comes around, I always wish it would snow just a little.  I used the new stamp set Flurry of Wishes, and its bundled punch called Snow Flurry to make today’s card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Flurry of Wishes for Christmas!

As I sort of promised yesterday – yea, I really committed to it (“Maybe tomorrow I’ll make a card that totally matches it”)! – I DID in fact make a card that very nicely complements the pretty gift box I made yesterday.  If you missed that, check it out here!

I used the new Flurry of Wishes stamp set and the matching Snow Flurry punch (yes, in a bundle for 15% off!) and a little more of the Season of Cheer DSP.  AND – I used one of my fave new toys – the Envelope Liners Framelits!  I’ve been wanting that die set for the longest time.  Yes, I learned how to make custom liners for my custom envelopes.  I even made a Tutorial on that!  But, I’ve wanted this die set that would quickly make rounded-flap liners to match the SU! envelopes.  And now I’ve got it! 🙂

Here’s what I came up with.  Take a look-see:
