Stampin’ Up! Give Thanks Today for All Things and a Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!  I hope this post finds you well, and surrounded by your family and friends.  And that your turkey thawed! 😉  I recall one quite memorable Thanksgiving many many years ago, when the turkey did not thaw, no matter what heroic efforts my parents attempted.  These days, the options for dinner on Thanksgiving are many, but back in the dark ages when this took place….not so much.  Denny’s was the only option.  And they were out of turkey!  Perhaps that’s the year I developed a taste for not-turkey on Thanksgiving – and on Christmas, too, for that matter.  Whatever your choice for dinner – I hope that preparations are well under way!


The Happy Stamper Ladies-Who-Hop have gathered their projects to share with you this Thanksgiving Thursday.  I know they’ve all worked hard to bring wonderful cards to you, so be sure to cruise thru all of their blogs, okay?

Here’s our design inspiration – this week was a sketch challenge!


My share is a conglomeration of the old and the new.  I used the wonderful For All Things, Vintage Leaves, Lighthearted Leaves and a soon-to-be-released 2016 Occasions Catalog set called Apple of My Eye (we ALL got one of these at OnStage Live – it was quite cool!!).  Take a look-see:

sigh….my lighting solutions are just not working all that well, and I’m so sorry.  I really thought the light I ordered would do the trick, but…. 🙁 Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Over the Rainbow for Super Simple Single Stamp Saturday!

Good Saturday morning!  It’s another Super Simple Single Stamp Saturday.  This week features the new-to-the-2015/2016-Annual Catalog Over the Rainbow stamp set!  I learned yesterday that our friends in Atlanta had to put their old friend Stumpy to sleep that day.  It was sad news – they’d had him his entire life and he’d pretty much gone everywhere with them.  A lot like Buck was for us.

So – I needed a Sympathy card.  But here I am in Yuma, AZ – with nary a sympathy stamp sentiment to be found.  Oh, of course not!  So – time to improvise!  I went for the Rainbow – a nod to the Rainbow Bridge poem that gives comfort to many a pet parent.  And this card was so easy and quick – the longest step in the process is pulling out each of the ink pad colors!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dove of Peace and Six Sayings for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Good Blog-Hop-Thursday-Morning to y’all!  I hope you’re ready for some beautiful projects from all the Ladies-Who-Hop.  At the end of the post are links to all the blogs – be sure to cruise thru all of them, okay?

Now – I’m going to apologize up front for the quality of my pictures.  I got back to the hotel last night, with plenty of time to finish my card, set up some sort of photo area (I did not bring one of my Ott Lites – which I may come to regret) and get my post done.  That was all true right up until the hamburger I ate at lunch (this is where I’m laying the blame), let me know in no-uncertain-terms that there’d been something awry with it.  Folks – not trying to curry sympathy here – but my night sucked!  Getting my card done became extremely low on my list right quick like.  I’m thinking it’s passed now, but…my energy level is low low low!

End of whining!

Today’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop challenge is a color challenge – we’re to use Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Old Olive.  I decided to do a Christmas themed card with the lovely (and retiring – so get it now if you love it!) Dove of Peace.  I pulled my sentiment from Six Sayings – another stamp set that’s retiring at the end of the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  This one is a Hostess Stamp, so if you want it in your stash, let’s chat about how to get it.  So, here’s what I came up with – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Give Thanks For All Things with Vintage Leaves and a Wonderland!

Happy Sunday!  The On-Stage Live event was a great day – we saw a lot of cool new products that I can’t wait to share with you!

Of course, I have to wait – I can’t share these things with you until tomorrow night – so….really Tuesday!  So be sure to check back during the week, when I’ll be showing you some of what we saw yesterday!

We did have fun.  Everyone got two or three free stamp sets from the new 2016 Spring Occasions catalog, which is quite awesome!  And Amy and Jari and I took a little time to pose for the camera.

So – the first ever On-Stage Live Event is in the history books and a good time was had by all.  And I just can’t wait to get my pre-order in and get them so I can start sharing the new goodies with you! 🙂

On to the business at hand.

Today’s card looks more complicated than it really is – especially after I tell you exactly how to do it! –  so don’t be intimidated.  It uses the For All Things stamp set, the Woodland TIEF and the super Festive Flower Punch (which is still in the Weekly Deals!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! For All Things Super Simple Single Stamp Saturday!

Hello Weekend!  Whoo-hoo!  Hope that you have some fun something to do!  I’m getting a haircut today – which is always good.  I love it when it’s just cut and easy to make look like something.  Something good, I mean! 🙂

Just a quick news flash.  Next weekend, I’ll be heading down to Tampa (hopefully with the hubby in tow!) to attend the Stampin’ Up! Onstage Live event.  Amy Koenders and Jari Francis are both going as well, so I think we’re going to have a great time!  One benny of going is we get a sneak peek at the new 2016 (seriously!?  Already?!?!) Occasions Catalog.  And I’ll bring home some goodies and be able to share some of that with you!  So be watching for that in the next few weeks, okay?

Today’s card is so darned easy that I called it a Super Simple Single Stamp Saturday card.  No Big Shot needed.  No Embossing folders.  No Framelits.  Just a stamp set – the beautiful For All Things (in the Annual Catalog) and some paper and ink.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lovely as a Tree Welcomes Fall for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Third Weekly Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  When you read this, I’ll be once again slipping the surlies  – this time heading EAST! 🙂  Will be home in plenty of time to feed the horses and get pony nose kisses!  They’re good for what ails ya, I promise! 😉

We had a fun sketch challenge this week, and since we have so many talented ladies in our group, I know that you’re going to want to head over and see what they’ve all done with it!  At the end of this post, I’ve provided a link to all the ladies’ blogs, so take a minute to wander around blog-hop-ville and maybe even take a moment to leave everyone a comment!  Here’s what we were working to:

Happy Stampers #2 sketch

My take on this went in the direction of welcoming Fall!  So, I combined an old favorite – Lovely as a Tree – with the sentiment from For all Things, with a few touches from the new and beautiful Into the Woods.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sleighless Sleigh Ride For All Things!

As we head into the first official weekend of the 2015 Fall Season, I thought it would be fun to Welcome Fall with a simple, one-stamp-set card.  Now, to be fair, I also used the Sleigh Ride Thinlits.  I’m sorry, but I just had to use the Big Shot on this one-stamp-set card!

It’s easy to forget, with all the fun new products in the 2015 Holiday Catalog, that the Annual Catalog also has wonderful items that will make super cards for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and beyond!  The stamp set that I chose today is just such an item – the For All Things set.  This was originally in the 2014 Holiday Catalog and (thankfully!!) made it into the Annual Catalog.  It’s a good ‘un, and I hope it stays as an active set for many years to come.

Take a look see at what I got when I paired For All Things with the Sleigh Ride Thinlits:

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Dove of Peace on a Day of Remembrance

For today’s share, I took an unexpected stamp – Dove of Peace – and used it to make an Autumn-themed card.  Not a Christmas card at all.  More of a Thanksgiving card.  And who better to be thankful to – for ALL things – than to the Dove of Peace?  And what better day to be Thankful than on this Day of Remembrance of the events and losses of 9/11 so many years ago.

Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lighthearted Leaves Welcome Fall!

Good morning – and Happy Hump Day!  It’s Wednesday, which means I’m half way thru my business trip and almost ready to go back home.

Except for how I’m writing this on Tuesday afternoon.  Lying on my bed in the hotel.  Awaiting time to go back out to dinner.

WARNING:  This is a bit long-ish, so….if you’re in a hurry, scroll right on by this next part until you see the card share for today! 🙂

Have you guys noticed that I’m a bit of a …. how do you say it??…..stick in the mud?  Home-body?  A morning person?  If you haven’t, let me share that news with you now.  I am NOT at my best in the evening (and that’s pretty much any time after about 6:30pm).  Here’s a totally normal evening for us – and it’s a routine that I love with every fiber of my being.  I’m sorry.  I like our routine.  I don’t care for it being disrupted.  In some regards, I may well be 92 years old.  God help whoever has to take care of my crotchety self if and when I ever really AM 92 years old.  And tread lightly if you’re going to change anything in my day-to-day-routine! 😉

We eat dinner between 5 and 6.  We usually watch a recorded show whilst we eat (yes yes, I know.  Bad for the diet.  Bad for….well, everything.  Got it).

We feed the horses.

We come back inside.

We make sure we re-set the kitty feeder bowls.

We watch the World News Tonight with David Sawyer. Pre-recorded.  We aren’t partial to commercials.  We have a pretty solid idea how far behind we have to be in order to not ever catch up while we watch the show.  It’s a matter of pride to never have to watch a commercial.

We watch one pre-recorded show.

I’m tired and I take a shower.  Wayne takes a shower.  We go to bed.

On a “late” night – this occurs at around 9.

Yea – we’re night-owls.

So here’s the point of this written perambulation.

When I’m away from home and staying in a hotel, my routine has been disrupted.  Like – a lot.  When I get back to the hotel in the evening, I’d better have already eaten or have take-out.  Cause….I’m there.  And thinking about bed.

Except tonight, I’m going out to dinner with some friends I don’t get to see except when I come here for meetings.  But, it’s going to take everything I’ve got…..  cause….yep.  Stick in the mud.

And – it’s practically bedtime!

So, I’m going to keep myself in busy mode by doing my blog post for tomorrow morning now – cause when I get BACK from dinner, it really WILL be bedtime!

This is a simple and easy card to make.  I found the technique in the new 2015 Holiday Catalog, and modified it to suit what I was after.  It uses Lighthearted Leaves (1 Sept!) and For All Things – a wonderful classic in the Annual Catalog.  Take a look-see:
