Stampin’ Up! Awesome Grateful Bunch!

Good morning!  I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!  Yesterday was just as bad as I figured it would be – I packed one Priority Mail box with paper and punches (it weighs approximately a million pounds!).  This morning we’re going to see if I need to pull more out of the suitcases and pack a second box.  Keep your fingers crossed, okay? 😉

Today’s share uses another new Occasions catalog stamp set – Grateful Bunch.  But, let me ask you a question, y’all.  Am I a complete goofus?  Did I – or did I not – learn a valuable lesson when I failed to buy the Among the Branches bundle in the Holiday Catalog?  When I said to myself – “self, you’re not going to need or want that stamp set – just get the Woodland TIEF – you don’t need the bundle”.  And then, not a week and change later, did I or did I not buy the Among the Branches stamp set??  The answer is no – I did not learn a lesson.  Cause yes – I did exactly that.

Now, I’ve told you over and over what a great deal buying bundles is.  Right?  But – apparently I do not listen to my own advice.  When making my ginormous Occasions Catalog order last week, I said to myself – “self, you’re not going to need or want that punch that coordinates with Grateful Bunch.  Just get the stamp set”.  So, once again I went against my own advice.

So, for today’s card – which uses Grateful Bunch, and COULD have used the matching punch (Blossom Bunch Punch – available with Grateful Bunch for $33.00), I did a lot of fussy cutting! 😉  I combined the pretty flowers and sentiments from Grateful Bunch with some Wildflower Fields DSP and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Greetings and Lovely As a Tree

I seem to be on a woodsy-themed kick this week!  It’s just that the Lovely as a Tree set is so nice to work with – especially the pine tree and the little pine cone bough, which appear to be my go-to sets.  And the sentiments and flowers in Cottage Greetings complemented the Lovely as a Tree perfectly on this card.

My friend’s birthday is next week.  I’ve known her since we were both riding staff counselors at Girl Scout camp sometime back in the Dark Ages.  We were in college in CO and spent two summers working in the mountains with horses and kids.  We had more fun than I can possibly tell you.  And we became the very closest of friends.  We don’t get to see each other a lot these days, nor do we talk on the phone much.  But, when we have a chance to be in the same spot – it’s like we were never apart.  Do you folks have friends like that?  The friends that just….are.  No work or effort required.  Being friends is just as easy as breathing?  I surely hope that you do!

So, anyway – she’s a Colorado mountain girl, and I wanted to make a card that honored her love of the Rockies.  My head-picture was of a mountain meadow at twilight – just like the one where our camp horses were pastured at night…..take a look-see:
