Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden Thank You

Happy Hawwmp Day From Huntsville!  Made it safely after a quick stop at the dentist to replace the crown I pulled off on Sunday.  Bleh! 🙁 Had my traditional first-night-in-Huntsville-Vietnamese dinner. Yum! 🙂  Did some “real” work and now…chatting with y’all! 🙂

Finn was not thrilled that I was leaving.  He found the suitcase rolling down the hall to be…suspicious.  And uppity!  It simply would not yield to his herding prowess.  Just kept going and going…

He really hated the van doors opening and being held back – he was ready to ride! 🙁

But – he got to go with his dad on some man-errands after I left, so I suspect he’s over it.  🙂

My project for today is a little note-card I made using the free Sale-A-Bration Avant Garden stamp set, and a sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set.  Plus a couple other goodies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Suite Seasons Petal Burst Thanksgiving for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Let’s start out by saying….Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!  We all sure do appreciate you taking time out of your holiday preparations to see what we’ve come up with for today’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop! 🙂

We had a sketch to work with today…

I took a little bit of liberty with it – hope you’ll forgive me – as I made a Thanksgiving card for you today.  I combined the Suite Seasons stamp set and the Petal Burst TIEF and created this.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Branches Birthday Blossoms!

Happy HAWWMP day, y’all!

I don’t know about y’all, but it’s so ridiculously hot and humid here….I think I’ve been sweating glowing-like-a-nuclear-reactor all day.  

The vet called early this morning (Tuesday) asking if he could come early.  Of course, I said yes, right?  I mean…I’m gonna say no?? 😉  

So, at 1030, I went and opened the gate and then moved some vehicles around at the barn so he could back in.  Then I got a soda and sat on the porch waiting for him.  11 – 12 he’d said.

In case you’re not aware, the individual voted most-likely-to-never-show-up-on-time is really not the cable guy.  It’s the horse vet.

Usually not his fault – calls take more time than he thought (us horse owners like to yak at the vet when we finally get him cornered – asking all those little questions that have been swirling in our heads), emergencies crop up.  We get it.  Us horse owners, that is.  We know that waiting is just part of it.  We even have an acronym.  WOV.  Waiting On Vet.

Not really – I just made that up.  But we should have an acronym for it!

He finally pulled in at 1pm.  And then it all went very well from there.  As predicted – the promise of peppermints brought everyone to the barn.

But OH. MY.  GOODNESS.  It was so hot – even with all the stall fans and the big aisle fan on.  I was dripping “glow” all over!  Yuk.

In between all that, I was on a long telecom for work – one of those meetings where they think you can hear anything they’re saying. But you really really can’t.

What I’m trying to say is – I’ve been a little distracted today, and that really crimped my creative juices.  Or it was the heat and the glowing.  IDK.

But when I finally got it going, I ended up combining a few stamp sets – Thoughtful Branches and Birthday Blossoms – with a few Thinlit sets – Beautiful Branches and Hearth & Home – and a couple of embossing folders – Petal Burst and Woodland.  See whatcha think – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Bursting Birthday Blossoms

Well – good morning!  I don’t want to say that by the time you read this I’ll be on the road home.  Cuz that would mentally lock me into getting up and getting going by the time this posts on Saturday at 7:30 in the A-M.  And I don’t know for sure that I’m going to be doing that!  My current plan is to wake up when I wake up, get up when I get up, pack when I pack and go when I go.

That’s what I’d call a definitive plan, huh? 😉

My card for today was originally for a Birthday card challenge – but I missed it, so…now it’s just a non-challenged birthday card.  It’s also really quick and easy – making it non-challengED and non-challengING!

I used the beautiful Birthday Blossoms stamp set, with some Petite Petals flowers added in.  And, cuz I love it, I brought the new Petal Burst TIEF into play. Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Mixed Borders Thanks for the New Products Blog Hop


Good morning – it’s time for another installment of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop series.  This time around, we’re all doing projects made with products from the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  That’s left it pretty wide open – so there’s no telling what surprises await you on this hop.  Be sure to check out all the blogs, okay? 🙂

I got a big ole box of new catalog goodies today!  Shoulda taken a picture I guess – that’s what all the good demonstrators do! – but I was just ripping into it like a kid at Christmas!!  So much fun!  I finally made myself stick all the embossing folders and framelits in their Stamp-N-Storage totes and the stamp sets into their “shelves”….and get busy!  I used the new Mixed Borders stamp set and the Petal Burst TIEF for this cute and quick Thank You note.  Take a look-see:

I started with a Crumb Cake Note Card and Envelope, just cuz it’s so easy!  My blue accents are all Dapper Denim, so I cut a Dapper Denim mat and another piece of Crumb Cake.  I ran that piece thru the Big Shot in the new Petal Burst TIEF.  Then I went ahead and SNAILd it to the Dapper Denim mat.
