Stampin’ Up! Sitting Here Just Sending the Greatest Greetings!

Good Friday, y’all!  Welcome to the last day of September!  And, for a minute, it’s going to be Fall!  It’s lovely here today!

Funny story. Well – not really funny ha-ha, more like funny you’ve-got-to-be-kidding-me!

Remember this card?
Right.  Yesterday, I printed out my shipping label (gotta love Click-and-Ship from the Post Office).  Then I carefully wrapped a little gift up in tissue, wrote my little note to my friend and his wife on my cute little card, and stuck it in my Small Flat Rate box.  Then I zipped up to the mailbox and stuck it in there with a couple of other packages.  Plenty of time for the post to run.  Congratulating myself all the way.

Last night, as I was getting ready for bed, I happened to glance at the printer.  On it was a USPS label.

To my friend.  In Wisconsin.  I stared at it stupidly for a moment, trying to figure out why there was a label to Len on the printer.

You already know – right?

Yup.  I mailed the little box with no postage.

Or address.

Or return address.

Nada.  Zip.  Zilch.  Nutin’.

Which means they can’t even return it to me.  I called the PO this morning.  Unless my mail lady happens to have looked at it when she got back to the Post Office, and remembered where she’d picked it up, and remembered to put it in her truck this morning….my little box has gone to the dead letter office.  Of which there is one.  One.  In the entire country!

My little box is sitting next to the thousands of letters to Santa and the Tooth Fairy.  Probably never to be seen again. 🙁

Sigh….I guess I’ll give it a day or two and then re-make the card and try again!

My brain….what in the world!??!

For today, though, no duplicate card.  Well…that’s not entirely true.  You see, I made another card for my friend, this time a Get Well card.  She just loves the Sitting Here stamp set and requests it every time!  I’m maybe going to have to tell her it did a Note 7 on me…


Too soon?  Sorry.

Anywho – I made her card with the Sitting Here swing (converted to a bench) and the dog in his bed.  I added some Petals & Paisleys DSP and a couple of sentiments from the Greatest Greetings stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Summer Sweetbriar Rose for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  it’s Thursday and that means it’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop Day!  We’re almost thru the week – yeah! – and the weather is gorgeous here in the deep South!  Spring in the South is the bomb-diggity.  When we get some, that is!  And we’ve got a few days where the weatherman is promising just that!  

Today’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop is a color challenge:

I pulled out another soon-to-Retire stamp – the oh-so-preety Sweetbriar Rose.  I combined it with the Hardwood Stamp, and a little dab of Summer Silhouettes (also Retiring!).  My sentiments are from Greatest Greetings and the soon-to-be-available Floral Affection stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

I started with a panel of Crumb Cake card stock – onto which I heat embossed the image from Sweetbriar Rose.  I inked the stamp with Versamark Ink, stamped the image and sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder (2016-2017 Annual Catalog).

Stampin’ Up! Garden in Bloom Smiles!

Well, good morning! Here we are, half way thru the weekend, getting closer and closer to OnStage next week! Practicing my “whoo-hoo”ing – in preparation for the unveiling of the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog! Should be pretty exciting. I’m also going to get to tour the home office, so I’m psyched for that, too! 🙂

My share for today uses the very pretty Annual catalog stamp set called Garden in Bloom. It has such pretty flowers – two step and three step images! I added a little sentiment from Greatest Greetings – in the Occasions catalog (hoping it makes it into the new catalog!). And, when you add in Birthday Bouquet DSP, this is what you get. Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Greatest Greetings Rainbow Kitty Sympathy Card

Good morning!  Wow – this was a gorgeous day here in Atlanta (I’m typing this on Saturday night)!  The past two days of rain and stormy weather that signaled the passage of a cold front left the air sparkling and (momentarily!) pollen-less-than-normal (not pollen-free but at least we’ve been able to have a few windows open today!)!  The dogwood trees and azaleas are going crazy – we only have a few that the previous owners planted – but everywhere you drive are mounds and mounds of azaleas in every color!  They’re so spectacular they’ll almost literally make you gasp when you round a curve in the road and see them.  Here’s a picture of one of my little ones –


Now, imagine that about 10 times bigger and in a group of about a hundred!  All enmass under tall pine trees.  Yes, that’s how folk plant them here and it’s magnificent!  If I’d been smart and planted one a year since we moved here…I’d have my very own breathtaking display.  As it is…I look at my meager group and go out of my way to drive down roads where I know I’ll see them!

I’ve spent too much time the past couple of days trying to make a card that can come close to echoing the colors of the azaleas….I have yet to be successful. 🙁

So, the card I have to share with you today is a sympathy card for the loss of a pet.  My friend needed one for her friend who, apparently, had a mama kitty who had trouble delivering a litter – and lost all the babies. 🙁 That’s a pretty sad thing.  So….she asked me to make a card to send.  I used a non-Stampin’ Up! kitty image – and combined it with the rainbow-building swath image from Over the Rainbow.  My sentiment is from the ever-handy Greatest Greetings and I also added some of the very pretty flowers from the Number of Years stamp set.  It’s easy to forget how pretty those flowers are – the number images pretty much steal the show!  But…take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! The Wilderness Awaits In The Meadow!

So – I love when someone asks me to make a card for them to give to someone special.  For me, it means that they really care enough to not want a cookie-cutter card from the grocery store aisle.  And that’s cool.  I also really like it – a lot! – when that request gives me an excuse to buy a new goody!  Like the card I have to share with you today.

My friend has a friend who’s been in the hospital – in and out – for the past several weeks.  A long time!  He’s a “dog guy” – I made the leap that he’s a “hunting dog guy” – since those are a lot of the kinds of folks she knows.  So she wanted a card with a dog and the outdoors.

Sadly – I had yet to purchase the The Wilderness Awaits stamp set.  I’ve been so busy acquiring Occasions catalog sets and bundles that I kept pushing that down my list.  So now was the perfect opportunity!  Once it arrived, I paired it with the In the Meadow set – which did come from the Occasions catalog and I very much hope makes it into the next Annual!  I added a few of the great sentiments from Greatest Greetings and….take a look-see:
