Last weekend in Savannah is in the books, folks! This time next week I’ll be home and – hopefully! – unpacked and back in the home-groove! And it’ll be August, for goodness sake! Can you even believe that?? I mean, the thermometer definitely knows it’s August, but darned if this year isn’t just flying by! We just did some Christmas in July, but…it’s going to be Christmas-for-real really soon!
And speaking of which – next week is the deadline to be sure you’re on my list to get a free 2016 Holiday Catalog! If you’ve placed a $50 or higher order with me in the past year, and you let me see who you are (you’ll know cuz I sent you an e-mail and an ordering gift!), then you’re in – you’ll be getting a catalog in the first half of August. If you haven’t placed an order, this would be a good time – pick $5o or more of your favorite goodies and I’ll automatically put you on the mailing list! 🙂
Now – speaking of goodies. The Seaside Shore stamp set, which I played with for today’s card, is what I’d call a “sleeper”. When I first saw it, I wasn’t all that impressed. I really couldn’t see me making much with it. But, now that I’ve got it, and have made a few projects with it – I really really love it. It’s just so much fun – especially when combined with the By The Shore DSP and the Seaside TIEF. And for this one, I added a couple of sentiments from the Perfectly Wrapped set. Take a look-see:
Hey guys – it’s Saturday, thank the good Lord. This has been a week. A very long, tiresome and frequently frustrating-as-all-get-out week.
And I’m tired. And I feel old. My mother is always telling me I’m not old, and I suppose that’s true. But today? I feel old!
My plan for the weekend has shifted. I’ve decided to skip lunch at The Olde Pink House – yes, that’s how tired I am! I’m staying in and vegging. And sleeping.
And making cards – cuz that’s fun – and I have “commissions” for two cards! 🙂 What do y’all think of that plan? I think it’s possibly one of the best plans I’ve devised in a while! I’ve got frozen dinners and leftover red beans and rice. I’m set to hunker like a hermit in my room!
So. Now that you’ve heard way more than you bargained for about my scintillating plans for the weekend, let me show you the card I made for today. I think it’s a fun one! I used some of the Swirly Bird stamp set and its coordinating Swirly Scribbles Framelits. And my sentiment is from another new stamp set, called Perfectly Wrapped. But I made it kind of…different. Take a look-see:
Kinda fun, huh? Continue reading
