Good morning all – and welcome back to the week! Did you have a good weekend? We didn’t do a lot – finished those pesky taxes (sort of), dried some watermelon (yes, that’s a thing!) and… made a couple of cards! Me. Not Wayne or Finn. THEY did not make cards! 🙂
My card for today used a cool sketch challenge as the starting point and I picked one of the new Special Release DSPs – the Shining Christmas Specialty DSP for the base. Then I added a pretty wreath from the Wishes All Around Bundle – and…well. Take a look-see:

Good morning on half-way-thru-the-weekend Day! AKA – Sunday! Hope your weekend is going well – and that you haven’t been plagued with bad weather. I think this is our day for the storms – but..hoping they’re not too rough!
My card today is the OPPOSITE of a stormy Southern day – it’s all about the tropics (I say Maui – you can make it be wherever YOU want to be!) with the pretty Tropical Leaf bundle – which is one of our cool new Online Exclusive products! Add some Flowers & More DSP – a host-exclusive goodie! – AND the fact that it’s a quick and easy fun fold and you’ve got a winner! Take a look-see:

Good Monday morning y’all! Hope you had a great weekend – ours was a little soggy. We had a chance to get a little bitty bit of work done in the garden but…not much. At least it’s hard for it to be “soggy” AND “polleny” at the same time!! At least – that’s what I’m telling myself! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
My card today is a great one that would be a great birthday card for a guy – or really ANYone who loves a slightly smirky and totally adorable rhino! Cuz the Rhino Ready stamp set – with its matching dies – brings THREE of the little boogers to life! I used a couple of them – and paired them with the Like an Animal Specialty DSP (a little “on the nose” maybe but…I thought it fit!). Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We’ve got a great sketch challenge to work with 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!
I combined the new Irresistible Blooms bundle (an Online Exclusive that just released yesterday!) with an old fave from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, the gorgeous Awash in Beauty DSP, to make a quick, easy, clean and simple little card for you! Take a look-see:

Good morning good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWWMP Day!! We are enjoying some SPECTACULAR weather here in Georgia – warm and sunny and perfect! SPRING is happening.
Don’t tell me about the last-gasp-of-winter cold snap that will probably come. I do not want to know, okay? Let me live in my little bubble of denial. 😉
Today’s a BIG DAY! Stampin’ Up! has released the first round of Online Exclusive products for your crafty pleasure! And there are some AMAZINGLY fun new goodies.
Good morning and happy Sunday! Hope your weekend is going well. We’re back to chilly again – and rainy! So…we DID get the seed starting stuff moved into the new well house but…the rain sort of put a damper on my excitement to start sowing! Maybe…today! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
Speaking of blooming…okay – it’s a LOOSE association but…work with me on this! We’re just a few short days away from the 1st of March, which is when you can get the new goodies that will be available exclusively online. You can call them…Online Exclusives. We do!! 🤔🤔 I dunno what ELSE will be there (I get to find out on the 1st, too!) but..I’m betting it’ll all be just as pretty as the Irresistible Blooms bundle, Hello Irresistible DSP AND the Basics 3D Embossing Folders – which I used on today’s pretty card! Take a look-see:
Happy Sunday, y’all! Hope you’re having a good weekend so far! Wanted to take just a moment to send out my thoughts and prayers to President Carter and his family. This is a hard time – no matter how expected or how strong your faith is that this is just a waypoint. I am glad they opted for Hospice – it’s such a wonderful organization – for the patient AND their family! Fair winds and following seas, Mr. President. 🙏🏻
Okay – on to the real reason you meandered over here today! I have a pretty birthday card for you today – it’s got some geometric shapes from the Something Fancy bundle and some sweet florals from the Two-Tone Floral set. And – a sneak peek at one of the three new Basics 3D Embossing Folders (coming on 1 March as an Online Exclusive!). Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy happy Hawmmmp Day to you all! Hope your week is going well! Yesterday was one of those “gotcha!” days – you know the ones. About 70 – doors open, windows open. Spent some time in the garden (in shirt sleeves!) – pruned the hydrangeas, cut down dead plants, found all the seed starting trays (ordered some more!), etc. You know – SPRING cleaning! It was lovely but…I don’t trust it! I’ll probably have to be back in covers and a watch cap by the end of the week! 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
My card today, though, reflects that Spring feel! I’ve used the pretty – and new (SO new, in fact, that only DEMONSTRATORS can get it yet!) Hello Irresistible 6″ x 6″ DSP – and it’s gorgeous! I paired it with the Framed Florets stamp set and bundled dies. Take a look-see:
