Stampin’ Up! Home for Christmas brings Lots of Joy. A very versatile pair!

Good Wednesday morning!  Hope that you’ve placed your Holiday Catalog orders and are waiting anxiously by the mailbox!  Mr. Postman – bring me some toys!  If you haven’t – well….you know what to do. 🙂

I went back to Lots of Joy and the Home for Christmas DSP – to show you how one DSP can look a lot of different ways.  Just in case you were confused by that!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Joy comes Home for Christmas!

Today’s share is another Christmas Card…can I get a “DUH!” from the blog-i-sphere?? I’m just really loving the Christmas themed stamps and papers in the new Holiday Catalog and they’re inspiring me.  Stampin’ Up! really outdid themselves with this release – I have many items on my list that I’m hoping and wishing will make it to the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  This set today though, Lots of Joy, is in this year’s Annual Catalog (so you could get it right now!) and has several really great sentiments, in beautiful fonts.  And, when paired with the new Home for Christmas DSP (in the Holiday catalog starting 1 Sept), and a great sketch….you get this.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lovely as a Tree at Moonrise

Well, the big cat just determined he was done with my lap – at least for a little while – so I can actually DO a blog post tonight!  Leo is a lap hog  – he stretches across my lap from one arm of the recliner to the other.  And stretches luxuriously and yawns (he yawns quite cute-ly – with the end of his tongue all curled up!) and turns half upside down – all across my lap.  And he does NOT think that it’s a good idea for me to set my computer on him whilst he’s doing all this.  So….cat -yes.  Computer – No.  Until he’s done with me.  It’s what we do.

My card tonight is inspired by a picture I saw on Pinterest.  Not of a card, but….

Hare at Moonrise

When I saw this photo, it just spoke to me.  About a 1000 years ago, in a galaxy far far away, I spent some time in the panhandle of Oklahoma.  Quite a while, actually – another business trip (yes, you’ve figured out my secret – I get ALL the great garden spots for my business trips….).  And it was in a pretty isolated little town (Super Walmart came while I was there and the whole town turned out.  It was BIG!).  So, I tried to find things to do (at that time, I didn’t do stamping, so I didn’t have a room full of crafty things to do) and on one of my little trips, I ended up at a preserve of some sort – no clue what it was called any more.  Wide open spaces.  Buffalo roaming.  Longhorns playing.  Bunnies frolicking.  Prairie Dogs barking.  It was big and, in its own way, beautiful.  A prairie preserved.  Anyway, I got a bee in my bonnet that it would be really cool to be there at night when there was a full moon.  So, one weekend, I dilly’d and dallied about until it was finally dark and the moon had risen over the prairie.  I wasn’t alone – other folks apparently shared my bee.  It was spectacular.  I don’t even remember the time of year now, but it wasn’t too hot or too cold.  It was just beautiful.  The light of the moon was….ethereal.  If it wasn’t too crystal-chaneling woo-woo….I’d say I could hear the creak of the wagons and the rustle of the wheels rolling thru the prairie grasses.  Truly one of the coolest experiences of my life.

Well – that picture took me back to that night.  And I wanted to re-create it on a card.  So I tried.  Take a look-see:
