Stampin’ Up! Christmas Greetings from Santa!

Good morning, y’all – our first morning with…Finn?  Maybe.  We’ve been using that since we picked him up.  He responds to it as well as to  anything else!

He had a pretty long day, poor baby!  Long car ride home – he was pretty antsy by the time we finally made it to the house.  But, for all he was nervous and worried about what the heck was going on, his way of dealing with it in the van was…

And, after we stopped and got some dinner and I moved to the front seat…


Please note the size of the hands and feet.  We met his daddy.  We’re talking 70 pound Aussie.  I fear Mr. Finn may match him!

So far, he’s a good boy – a very very smart boy.  He’s not had any leash training, but you can almost literally see his brain turning as he’s learning – even in the midst of the stress of his first day as a Deatherage.  I think he’s going to be a whole ton of fun! 🙂

Oh – and Mr. Wayne, who tried to make me think he’d been coerced?  Yea.  He’s already in love.  Big ole fraud….

My card for today was simple and quick to make.  It uses the Greetings from Santa stamp set and the Christmas Greetings Thinlits.  Add in a little Gorgeous Grunge and that’s all it needed. Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sneak Peek – Totally Trees Stylized Birthday!

Well, good morning – I’m grateful to y’all for giving me a few minutes of your Saturday morning!  I’ll confess that my title is a tad misleading – only the Totally Trees stamp set – from the new Holiday Catalog is a true “sneak peek”!  But – the Stylized Birthday stamp is new in the Annual Catalog – and new to me!  My oh-so-uber-cool upline and friend, Amy Koenders, suprised me with it the other day!  This was a stamp I had on my Wish List but just hadn’t acquired yet.  So, it was wicked cool to get it out of the blue!

And I was right to want it on my wish list!  It’s a really pretty little sentiment – it’s an a la carte stamp, which means you get one image.  And it’s a good one!

Totally Trees is a lot of fun – it’s got lots of different images and you can put them together in all sorts of ways to make lots and lots of…well,  trees!!  And a sun.  And…coconuts, too!
