Well, it’s happened. I’ve got projects to share stockpiled on my desk. We’re done with our project. There’re no more excuses. All that’s left is to tape together boxes, load them up and get them to the post office tomorrow. And then I’m out on Saturday! I do have to keep reminding myself that I have tomorrow to pack and mail and mentally prepare. You’d think I’d be extra anxious to leave and get home, but…I’m not all that comfortable with changes. It’s forever been true for me that I’m better at being gone than I am at getting gone. It’s why I do 3 – 4 month trips versus a couple of weeks and then home and then back and then home…. I nest up. I get comfy where I am and in the routine du jour. Switching it up….yuk.
But, tomorrow it’s time – and, truthfully, once I start the process and get into it – all will be well. It’s funny, I can almost feel my brain make the transition from being “here” to being “there”. I can’t predict when it will happen – but I’ll all of a sudden realize, sometime between right this second and getting on the plane on Sunday….I’m ready to be home!
And that probably falls into the TMI category, and what-the-heck-is-she-talking-about-why-doesn’t-she-get-on-with-the-card!! 😉 Sorry.
So, for today, I have a card that leans heavily on some of the beautiful papers and stamps in the Sale-a-Bration flyer. Wildflower Fields DSP is some of the prettiest paper I’ve seen. I’ve combined it with another of the free goodies in the SAB – Botanicals For You. Add in the ever-versatile One Big Meaning, from the Annual Catalog and a little Botanical Garden Designer Vellum and….take a look-see:
Happy Friday, y’all! I’m counting down the days until I head out again – so am enjoying as much “at home” time as I can! Today was exciting – I got my hair cut.
No – that’s not the cause for excitement! When I got home – I had a box sitting by the gate that said “Stampin’ Up!” on the side! Oh my goodness, what fun THAT was to open! Stamps, and paper, and punches, and inks, and embellishments and more stamps and framelits…..wow. I surely did enjoy pulling those things out of that box!! 🙂
I spent a little time making a card with some of the new goodies, but my share for today is one I made a couple of days ago – you’ll maybe recall that I’m busily getting ahead on cards so I can keep the blog posts going next week…
So, this one is a masculine birthday card – I get asked for those every once in a while, so I figured I’d try to come up with one! It uses Sky is the Limit (this is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that’s only available until 15 Feb!) and a sentiment from Guy’s Greetings (a fun set from the Annual Catalog). Take a look-see:

Mike Mike Mike Mike MIKE! Guess what day it is?!? It’s LAST-HAWP-DAY-OF-2015-DAY!!
I’ve been screwed up on what day it is since Christmas! Christmas just happened on the wrong day of the week for me. So I’ve been messed up – hopefully I’ll remember when Friday is and eat my black eyed peas and greens! 🙂
Today I have a card that combines Bloomin’ Love – from the 2016 Occasions Catalog – and Sky Is The Limit – from the Sale-A-Bration Flyer. I ended up with a really clean and simple card, that I think you’ll like! Take a look-see:

Welcome to the last Monday of 2015. Can you even believe that!? I’m having a hard time realizing that 2015 is almost gone.
I’m having a hard time gathering up my annual piles to take to Goodwill, too. Do you guys do that? Or are you much better organized than I am (of this I have no doubt whatsoever!) and you take some here and take some there and are smugly shaking your finger at me right now?? 😉 I know. Every year I say I’m going to deal with taxes better – I say it at the end of the year when it’s too late for the current year, but I swear I’ll do better for the one coming in 4 days.
Guess how well that’s going for me?
Anywho! On to today’s card share – the last one for a Monday in 2015. Yesterday’s card was all about the Framelits – the gorgeous Botanical Builder Framelits. The flowers did all the work. For today, I swung (swang? Did done had swung? – Big Bang reference) the other way, and made a super simple card that lets some beautiful new Designer Paper do all the work. This paper, called Perfectly Artistic Designer Paper will be one of the free items you can pick with a $50 (before shipping and handling!) product purchase when Sale-A-Bration begins on 5 Jan!
I combined it with the nice sentiment stamp called Watercolor Thank You, from the Annual Catalog and made a monochromatic card….well, take a look-see:

It’s Friday, it’s Friday! Whoo-hoo!! I am very ready indeed – and I hope that you have something fun to look forward to this weekend. And, I don’t want to put too fine a point on it, but….there’s only 21 shopping day till Christmas. Just sayin’….
Speaking of Christmas – why don’t you try to get a little sumpin’-sumpin’ for free for Christmas? Like….some Blog Candy! You’ve still got a few days to get entered. Entries close Monday afternoon – I’ll draw Tuesday morning. Here’s the spot to go to get your name in the hat. 🙂
And speaking of FREE – who doesn’t like free stuff? If any of you raised your hands, I would respectfully call you out as a fibber! We all like free things! And starting on 5 Jan 16 – Stampin’ Up! is giving you an awesome chance to earn free products. That’s right – it’s almost Sale-A-Bration Time!!! On 5 Jan 16, the very same day that the 2016 Occasions Catalog goes live, Sale-A-Bration starts. From 5 Jan – 31 Mar, for every $50 in product that you spend (before shipping and taxes), you’ll get to pick a FREE item from the SAB catalog. And there are some really fun things – including the stamp set and pretty Designer Paper that I used in my sneak peek card today. This set is called Sky Is The Limit. Take a look-see:
