Stampin’ Up! Sparkly Seasons Wish You a Happy Halloween!


Fall Back Icon

Well, today’s share almost didn’t happen!  Yesterday, in the middle of making my card – for Halloween! – we went out to feed the horses.  Our big guy – who’s 25 or so (that’s not ancient, but it’s getting up there pretty good), came in with a case of ADR (that’s scientific vet speak for Ain’t Doin’ Right).  He took about 2 bites of his dinner and then began to act – wrong.  It became clear pretty quickly that he was colicing.  Now, when a baby colics – it’s worrisome.  When a horse colics – it’s beyond worrisome.  Colic can – and has! – kill a horse.  And an old horse…well…let’s just say that it gets our attention really fast.

Long story short – after about 2 1/2 hours of walking, doctoring and talking to the vet (and hoping for some….poop!), we finally left him in his stall for the night.  Back in the house at around 9:15pm – still no card done.  But, I persevered – at least I knew what I was going to do.  And – it helped me to stay awake for the 11pm welfare check on the patient!

On a brighter note – when I got home from the grocery store yesterday afternoon, a satisfyingly heavy Stampin’ Up! box was at the gate!  I just love when those kinds of boxes arrive – don’t you?  This was my order that I placed during the 15% off sale!!  Also – on the very same day that 6 new stamp sets arrived – Publix had TWO more of the Ster-i-lite CD boxes!!  Timing is everything!

So – back to the card I made.  I used Sparkly Seasons and its bundled Seasonal Frame Thinlits, paired with some Happy Haunting DSP to bring you Happy Halloween wishes.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Something for You Gift Box for Halloween

As promised, I thought I might share one of the cute projects we did at WCMD on Saturday!  This is a little box, ready for gift giving at Halloween.  It uses a Stampin’ Up! Tag a Bag Gift Box (you get 8 of these for $7.00 in a pack!), a little Happy Haunting DSP and a Spider Web Doily.  The sentiment is from A Little Something.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Mini Treat Bag Thinlit for Halloween – and WCMD!!

Happy Day-After-World-Card-Making-Day! 🙂 Hope you had some time to make cards in celebration.  Yesterday was wonderful at the WCMD 2015 Atlanta!  There were 100 card-making-geniuses (genius-i?) who attended at the Marriott up on the north end of Atlanta.  In spite of the rainy, gloomy day, spirits were high (there was a lot of “whoo-hoo!-ing”) and fun was had by every single person there.  Brian King and Pam Morris (and a bevy of folks to help them) did an awesome job putting on this day-long event!

Everyone started gathering up and finding their spot for the day.  There were old friends to see and new friends to make.  Got to meet folks whose blogs I follow – Mary Fish, Brian King, Amy Whelan….

My own upline, the uber-talented Amy Koenders was there with us – and there was an entire display board dedicated to her beautiful cards!  I pretty much told everyone that she was my “SU! Mom” (that’s what folks call their immediate upline – Grandma would be next up and so on). Lots of folks stopped to take pictures of all the beautiful projects on display.
