Stampin’ Up! Parisian Beauty and Blossoms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the challenge, I just sort of fell on the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP – it just made sense.  Since I hadn’t used the Parisian Beauty stamp set, with its bundled Parisian Dies – I thought this would be a great time!  And so…take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sealed with Love Bundle….Sneak Peek!

Hey y’all!  It’s Tuesday again!  Only a week and a bit before Thanksgiving!  And then full-tilt into Christmas.  Hard to believe it’s already so close!

Finn’s developed a love-hate relationship with our deer.  He loves to chase them and they hate him.  Or…they act like they hate him.  He’ll give chase if not on the leash, but he gives up pretty quickly.  Scares the you-know-what out of me – I panic and go flying after him in the golf cart and he’s right around a tree.  Laughing at me.

Well, he looks like he’s laughing, anyway.

The deer flip their tails at him, and I think they bound away making it look like they’re going really fast?  But, in truth, they’re in moderate-boing mode.

This morning in our travels, we spent a little time playing with the fire-hose covered bumper.  One of the 2.3 million toys I bought for his entertainment.  He’s got quite a pair of springs for legs!  He was leaping up like 4′ in the air trying to catch the bumper while I swung it for the throw!  Hopefully I can channel that into some Frisbee!

You guys watch for us in the Purina Incredible Dog challenge in a few years!  I’ll be the fat girl trying to keep up with my uber-fast-and-fit incomplete-neck-collar Aussie! 🙂

Now – the card for the day!  You’re going to recognize my color scheme – I used Real Red, Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy again – just like yesterday.  But today’s card is a Valentine’s card.  Or a…I just love you lots card!  And it perfectly showcases the Occasions Catalog bundle called Sealed With Love.  This stamp set, of the same name, and the coordinating Love Notes Framelits are part of the Sending Love Suite of products.

I used some of the pretty Red and White Sending Love DSP Stack to make this card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Love, Always – Best Bird

It’s Monday, y’all!  Hope you’re all ready for your week – cuz it’s happening whether you want it to, or not!  

I have a cute little card for you today, but first – as promised – I’ve got some veggie pics to share with you.

Ready?!  Try not to drool on your keyboard, it’s bad for it!

Veggies in the tub
The Harvest

I know – you’re amazed at the quaint and rustic beauty of my vegetable “basket”, aren’t you?  Maybe even a little jealous?  Yes.  It’s true.  I gathered these in the same sundress I tried to lure Duck Duck in yesterday.

Oh – and I was wearing a sun bonnet, too.  Of course.

Chilis and Tomatoes
Ancho Magnifico Chili Peppers and Tomatoes!

I’ve got a lot of chili charring to do in my immediate future – the reward?  Chili rellenos casserole and chile relleno burritos!  Yummmmmo!!  The little maters are Sweethearts – those are a grape variety – and they’re so sweet and good.  The vine grows and produces prolific clusters of the tomatoes.  This barely dented what’s waiting!

Green Beans

French Algarve Green Beans

These are the most tender and tasty green beans I’ve even had.  Ever.  Now – these (some of them) are a little past where I’d normally have plucked them – but I’m going to cook them anyway.  I know they’ll still be good! 🙂

So there it is – the first “big” harvest of the summer!  One of the more gratifying parts of the year, heh?

And thus concludes this episode of “Mary’s Gardening on a (horse)Shoe String”….we’ll now get back to the real point of this blog…cards!

This one today uses the fun and pretty new stamp set bundle called Best Birds.  It has the Best Birds stamp set and the matching Birds & Berries Thinlits.  I added a sentiment from the Sunshine Sayings Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Love a Best Bird 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I played with a couple of challenges on this card.  The first, Freshly Made Sketches challenge #247, gave me the layout. Continue reading
