Good morning! How goes your week?
Ours is cooking along – I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. Might have gotten a bit ahead of myself on the treadmill yesterday morning. But – gotta get back at it!! I feel so triumphant when I get done and so durned…guilty!!…when I don’t do it!
Must say – if anyone had told me six-seven months ago that I’d be anxious to get back on the treadmill….I’d have flat ROFL my hiney off!!
So – let’s talk about something way less nauseating than a treadmill. Like….Christmas cards!! As it happens, I have one to share with you today – that uses the Holly Jolly Christmas bundle and some Night Before Christmas DSP. Take a look-see:
Well – good Monday morning! Sorry if “Good Monday” is still a bit of an oxymoron! 😉
I know that yesterday’s card used the Come to Gather DSP – but…so does today’s! Sorry! I paired it today with the Gather Together Bundle and the Woodland Embossing Folder. Take a look-see:
Hey, y’all! ‘Sup?? Hope you’re having a good weekend.
If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me (and your understanding of my throat issues!!)! If not, but you’d like to see how I used the Stamparatus to make this quick thank you card, here ’tis!
I frequently need multiples of cards – particularly thank you cards – so the Stamparatus is a total lifesaver! AND – when you can also employ the “hinge step” (unique to the Stamparatus!) – it makes it easy and fun to create cards like this one with the multi-occasion To Every Season stamp set. Take a look-see:

My card today has a Christmas-y feel, but it’s a congrats card! I used the Toile Christmas bundle and Toile Tidings DSP – with some help from Well Written Dies and the Parcels & Petals stamp set. Take a look-see:
Hey y’all – second post of the day! If you’re looking for my card from this morning – here ’tis!

Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!
Or as they day in Italy: felice giorno della gobba felice.
Well – that’s what Google Translate says, anyway!
Regardless – we’ll be on the way soon. First off is to take the Man to Puppy Tubs – we packed his gear – food, bones, a toy-that-smells-like-me, and Mr. Elephant (who had come back from the toy-hospital in the barn). We’ll drop him and then head to the airport around noon!
We’ll meet up with Amy and her family in Philadelphia then commence the 9+ hour flight to Rome where we’ll spend a few days before boarding the ship on Sunday!
Be watching for pics throughout the day on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page – I’m sure I’ll be posting as we go along! If you don’t already follow my page, click that Follow button so you’ll be notified with each new post! 🙂
I wanted to take one last chance to send out my most heartfelt thanks to all my customers and wonderful Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team who helped me to achieve this dream trip! I one-million percent could not have done it without all y’all’s help and support!
I’ll share as many pics as I can these next few days – along with some cards I’ve got ready to go! And, of course, next week we’ll see the new 2019 Holiday Catalog – I know you’re excited to see what Stampin’ Up!’s got up there sleeve for THAT one!
To celebrate my trip and to say “thank you” for the ginormous part y’all played in it…I’m offering Double Peppermint Reward Points!
My Ordering Special will run from today thru the end of the day on 14 Jul! 🙂
Here’s the deets…
1. All orders of $50 or greater (before shipping and taxes) placed through my online store between now and the end of the day on SUNDAY 14 JULY will earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINT REWARD POINTS!!

So – one more time – let me just say again..
Ci vediamo dopo, amici miei!
Use this host code when you order and receive a free gift from me! But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 from any active catalog! And – you can even select one of the Host-exclusive sets! See my Rewards page for more details.
What – exactly! – IS Bonus Days, you ask?
Well – during the month of July 2019, for every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax) you’ll earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that you’ll redeem in August!! And – there’s no limit to the number of Coupons you can earn. Whaaa?!? 🙂
Here’s the Deets!
Once we get into August, I’ll share the How’s and Deets on redeeming all those wonderful coupons!!
Maybe for the discount (20-25% on EVERYTHING!)?
Maybe for a little extra cash coming in?
Well – regardless of the WHY – the Perfect WHEN is NOW!!
From 1 July thru 31 August, new demonstrators will receive an additional $30 to put toward bonus products in their Starter Kit. THEN, you’ll receive a $10 coupon code to use the following month. Woo-hoo!!
Check it out!
Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator comes with lots of bennies! Like…a 20-25% discount on everything you purchase! Getting to see (and buy!!) all the new goodies before everyone else! The opportunity to earn great trips – Alaska, Greece, Maui (just to name a few!). Joining other Demonstrators at awesome-fun yearly events to learn and network (and party!!)!
And joining my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team brings even more fun – we’re building a great little community of folks who love to stamp and create! We have a fun and exclusive FB page where we chat and share our projects, with monthly challenges and awards.
Our team is a mix of folks who joined to get the discount (Hobby Demos) and those who are pursuing a business! Whatever YOUR goal is – I’d love to have you on board!

Last weekend at Sam’s we bought a whole watermelon.
Almost as if we weren’t leaving…today!…on vacation.
So – I cut it up on Sunday with the plan that we’d eat it and then whatever was leftover we’d leave (with the chunks of the cut-up rind) in the outside fridge to be fed to the ladies while we were gone.
I even used a cookie scoop to make the melon balls. Cuz…melon tastes better as balls. That’s a real thing.
But folks…there weren’t enough melon-baller-cookie-scoops to help this thing!
It looked SO yumm-o while I was cutting it up. But…when I finally took a taste…
Nuthin’. Nada. Niente.
Tasted like red…niente.
What is more disappointing than a watermelon that hasn’t fulfilled its promise?
But – the Man? Not so discerning.
Neither were the ladies!
Slurp slurp nom nom slurp.
