FINN-FAN FIX….

Pretty sure you have to be tired of pictures of Finn sleeping in the bathroom while I take a bath.

I’m sorry.  But I can’t help it very much.  He just gets in the most cutest and adorablest positions ever.

Case in point.


Check the flopped ear.

I’m sorry for all you people who think you have the cutest dog ever living in your home.  It’s sweet that you think that, and you should keep on thinking it.  But…you’re just flat wrong. 😉

He’s right here in Fayetteville!

Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Shaker Card

Mornin’, y’all!  If you’re coming over from Amy’s blog – thanks for stopping by!  If you’re a regular here – you know I love ya all!! 🙂

Just a quick note – I’ll be going Live tonight at 8pm Eastern with another share.  It’s going to coordinate with this card – and I think it’ll be a fun project!  Hope you’ll join me right here!  Well….there!                                                                                                            👇🏻


Now – my card for today isn’t a single-stamp-set easy and quick card.  Sorry.  It’s got a lot of steps – but I’m really happy with how it turned out!  I used my fave bundle (okay – one of my fave bundles!) – the Special Reason bundle from the Occasions Catalog, and the wonderful All Things Thanks stamp set.  Take a look-see:


This is one that worked along with three challenges.  The first is from Mojo Monday and it inspired the layout.


Next up is the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge, which is why this is a shaker card.


Finally – the overall look of the card and many of the elements comes from the inspiration photo at The Card Concept.


Ready?  Here we go,

I started by cutting two pieces of Soft Sky card stock and stamping them both with the Hardwood stamp in Smoky Slate ink.  I sponged both pieces with more Smoky Slate – getting the edges and adding color inside the panels, too.  To make the “wood” look like the old chair in the photo, I used a sponge wedge to wipe Whisper White Craft Ink in a horizontal motion on the card stock.


Once that was dry (and it takes a minute or some help from your Heat Tool!), I swiped on some very light areas of Delightful Dijon.  Then I cut the second piece down to the size of the shaker front, and used the excesss to tear into pieces to adhere to the card front.  Which I did, after sponging them some more with Smoky Slate ink, using Liquid Glue.  They’re to invoke the peeling paint on the chair.

I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front and then SNAILd the whole thing to a Rich Razzleberry mat.

To make the shaker, I cut the Stylish Stems flower (the solid flower) from a piece of Delightful Dijon card stock and from the smaller panel I’d prepared.  Then I adhered a Window Sheet to the back of the “front” piece and also to the Delightful Dijon piece.  I wanted the sprinkles to have a smooth spot to lay.  I rubbed both window sheets with my Embossing Buddy and piled some Sprinkles Embellishments onto the Delightful Dijon piece.


Then I added Foam Adheseive Strips around the flower opening and around the edges of the hardwood panel, and carefully set it atop the bottom (Delightful Dijon) panel.  You can see the foam strips in the previous photo! 🙂

I cut out a Rich Razzleberry Stylish Stems flower (first you cut the detailed image and then you cut that out with the “solid” die) and used little dots of Liquid Glue to adhere it into the cutout on the top of the shaker.  Then I used more Liquid Glue to adhere the whole thing to the card front.

My flowers are also from Stylish Stems.  I cut the backs from Very Vanilla and made two Pink Pirouette and one Blushing Bride detailed flower.  I lightly sponged each Very Vanilla flower – one with Pink Pirouette, one with Blushing Bride and one with Peekaboo Peach – then I adhered the detailed flowers with Liquid Glue.  I cut two little leaves from Pear Pizzazz and adhered them with Liquid Glue as well.


I laid down some pieces of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim with some Glue Dots, then added two flowers over that with Liquid Glue.  The third flower is popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from All Things Thanks and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  I stamped each word individually, cut them out, edged them with my Rich Razzleberry marker and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.


I added some Pearl Basic Jewels and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added another All Things Thanks sentiment in Rich Razzleberry to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I inked up a small flower from the Special Reason stamp set in Pink Pirouette and used a Sponge Dauber to lightly sponge the ends of the petals in Peekaboo Peach, and stamped it in the corner.  I covered the flower with a sticky note mask, and stamped a couple of Pear Pizzazz leaves (stamping them off once).  I used my Pear Pizzazz marker to add a little shading to the leaves.


I SNAILd the panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat and into my Basic Gray card base, adhered the front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Pink Pirouette/Peekaboo Peach flower and Pear Pizzazz leaves on the front…


…and another on the envelope flap,  Over that, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I stamped “Thank You” (from All Things Thanks) three times on Rich Razzleberry.


Et Voila!  I love the shabby chic vibe of this card!  Taking the time to “distress” the Hardwoood-stamped card stock panels was well worth the effort.  And the Sprinkles Embellishment colors are so in tune with the flowers in the inspiration photo!  Of course, the Special Reason set is wonderful anyway!!  Hope you like!\

FINN-FAN FIX….

So yesterday I showed you the preparatory stance of the Finn-meister just before he leaps into my lap.

Here’s what I get if I wiggle an eyebrow wrong…

Little more dog up there than there used to be, huh??  Look how “puppy” his face was – and how “not-puppy” it is now! 😩

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Easter Cross

Good Easter morn’ to you all!  Rejoice in this day! 🙂

I have an Easter Cross card to share today – but it’s a bit of a cautionary tale!  It could be titled: Check Supplies Twice Before Beginning.  Or: Always Finish Your Card Front First.  And the main character in this decidedly NON-fiction tale is….Gold Foil.  You’ll see why shortly!

I used several flower makers for this card – the Botanical Builder Framelits, Petite Petals punch flowers and Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack flowers.  And I went back to the In The Meadow stamp set.  Just a reminder – this set is in the Occasions catalog – and is only guaranteed active thru the end of the sale period – 31 May.  Which seems like a long way away – until you realize it’s practically APRIL!  Can you even believe that??  So if you’re wanting this lovely stamp set, get it soon!

Anyway – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Barnyard Babies Congrats and Blog Candy #3 Winner!

We have a WINNER!!  My 100th Blog-post-iversary Blog Candy #3 will be on its way to its new home soon!  Read on down to see who the lucky winner is! Thanks to all who played and helped me celebrate 100 posts! 🙂

Now, I know that yesterday I told you to expect a card made with my new 2015 Holiday Catalog goodies.  But – we have a special event coming up and I needed a card.  And my brain had been running around an idea for a couple of days and I needed to get it made before I lost it!  Anyone able to relate to that??  Here’s what’s happening.

Chris – one of the twins I’ve told you guys about quite a bit in this blog – has (as you know!) been accepted to the University of GA School of Veterinary Medicine.  He starts class in about a week.  Sunday, they’re holding what they call The White Coat Ceremony.  We’re all going up to see what I assume is going to involve music and some cheering and some pep talks and maybe a few warnings about the difficulties and trials that lie ahead of them.  After the ceremony, we’ll tour the brand new, state of the art facilities at the school.  I’m really looking forward to going.  This is a really big deal for Chris – he’s worked so hard to get to this point, and we couldn’t be prouder of him.  As part of the deal, we’ll give him a gift of some sort (probably cash! 🙂 ) and, of course, a card!

He’s going to be a vet.  Barnyard Babies has animals.  Hello?  It’s pretty much a no-brainer.  Take a look-see:

One of Those Days….and a Thank You Card!

So – if you’ve been a follower of my blog for any time at all, you know that I very recently got home from 4 ridiculously long months in California.  In case you’re new here (welcome! 🙂 ) and let me just say that I wasn’t in the part of CA that you see Clint Eastwood talking about on TV.  No indeed.  But – I’m home now.  And I’ve been taking a couple of weeks of vacation.

We live very near Atlanta.  We have lots and lots of stuff to do here.

Six Flags over Georgia.

Water Parks.

Lake Alatoona, West Point Lake and Lake Lanier within an hour or two.  And a nice fishing boat in the garage.

Calloway Gardens just a couple of hours south of us.  And I hear the butterflies are hatching.  De-robing?  Un-cocooning?

Stone Mountain is close and apparently fun.  Nope – never been there.

One of the best aquariums in the country – just up the road.

The Coca-Cola plant and museum – just up the same road.  And it boasts the opportunity to try Coca-Cola products from all over the world.  Sorry, though – until they make Diet Mountain Dew….I’m a Pepsico girl.  And – other countries have some pretty……”hmm” ideas of what makes soda taste good.  Just sayin’.

Bottom line?  We gots lots and lots of cool, fun things to do – right here.  So – what do you think we did?

Yup – you guessed it.  We replaced the toilet in our master bathroom.  I believe the old one is as old as the house (and it’s no young-un!) and was really ready to be replaced.  Like coffee and toilet paper – there’s just some things that are life-critical.  Toilets that WORK are right up there on that list (maybe for DH the entire outdoors is a valid alternative, but….not for the DW (that’s me)!).  So it was necessary.  But, I must say – if asked to write a one page (single spaced) essay on “What I did on summer vacation” – this would be kind of pathetic!

To top it all off – it’s been “one of those days”.  You know the kind I mean?  I’ve been in a completely stinkin’ mood all day.  One might even say…..

bitchy day

No idea why or where-from the great B****-iness overcame me today – but it did.  Which I’m sure added to the overall pleasantness of replacing the toilet for my DH.  Oh!  Did you think I meant “WE” when I said “we”?  No – HE did the toilet while I supervised, read the directions (which he pretty much ignored), checked for leaks, etc.  The usual.

But – it’s done now.  Ready to roll.  Or flow.  Or….something.  And I’m sure tomorrow will be much better!  And hopefully the little bundle will be all gone.

Now – let’s get on with why you came here today, shall we?  My card today was one I did to thank my friend in CA for all the help he gave me on this last trip.  It uses the brand new Happy Birthday, Everyone stamp set, and is done in a few of the new 2015-2017 In Colors.  Take a look-see:
