Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Succulent Garden Sneak Peek!

Mornin’, y’all!  Well.  Here we are on the last day of 2016.  Can you even believe that?!  Pretty soon it’s going to be 2050 and we’ll all be driving around in flying cars and have robot housekeepers named Rosie (yes, they’ll all be “Rosie”).  I’m pretty sure that’s going to happen!  I saw it on the Jetsons, so…it’s a true thing.

My friend (Aunty Jan), sent me a couple of pictures of Finn’s doggie day camp from Thursday.  Turns out he was pretty enamored of a red Kong bone.  Since he’s an only child, sharing isn’t really a thing for him – the cats seldom want anything to do with his toys.  So he figured the red Kong bone was his.  All.  His.

But Jax – their 8 month old lab – thought…maybe not.  So, it took their Aunty Scout to moderate the ensuing discussion.

I wish I could have seen the next few minutes, don’t you?!? 🙂

So – my card for today is another sneak peek of the Succulent Garden Suite – but…guess what??  The sneak peeks are almost at an end – pretty soon now, y’all will be able to get all the 2017 Occasions catalog goodies for yourself!  But, for now, I used a few stamps and dies from the Oh So Succulent bundle, a little Succulent Garden DSP  – and a…surprise!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Moroccan Nights Sneak Peek and Cottage Greetings Shaker Card

It’s Saturday once again – Hallelujah!  And it’s a Saturday in my favorite season of the year!  It’s No-Heat-and-No-AC Season!  The windows are wide open and I can hear the birds and the frogs and the neighbor’s geese.  And the occasional truck or car on the road nearby – not my fave sound of nature, but it is what it is!  We get two No-Heat-and-No-AC seasons here in GA – the second one happens in the Fall!  Love ’em both. 🙂

My card today is another shaker card.  You’re probably thinking….seriously?  She figures out how to do one and has a cool new tool to make them easy – and that’s all she’s going to do?!?  Well, I promise this will be my last one for a month.  Okay – maybe a week.  But they’re just so cool!

This one didn’t start out as a shaker card, anyway.  But about half way thru, when I was making the sentiment – the lightbulb went on and it just made sense!  I used the brand new stamp set (so new you can’t even get it yet!) from the upcoming 2016-2017 Annual Catalog called Moroccan Nights.  Since I can’t get the Moroccan DSP yet, I paired it with the vibrantly colored Bohemian DSP – which is retiring on 31 May!  There’s a sentiment from Cottage Greetings and one from Sunburst Sayings, too – just to keep ya on yer toes! 🙂  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Number of Years Shutter Fold Birthday Card!

Home! Had a good flight (other than them running out of food before they got to us!) and a great last chat with Amy.  What a wonderful 5 days with her – we had a really good time.  OnStage 2016 was fun – we ate some great meals (at the hotel, surprisingly – if you ever go to SLC – try Spencer’s Steak House.  Fabulous!) – chatted and laughed and really just had fun!

And, man am I glad to be home!! 😉

Coming soon – like…this afternoon – I’ll be posting a special message with the Retiring Product List.  And then….get ready!  It’ll be time to get on the stick and get your orders in – things will go fast!  

And, before you know it, it’ll be your chance to order from the truly amazing 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  You’re so gonna love it!  Starting tomorrow I’ll be able to share some Sneak Peeks!  Hold on to yer hats!

But, for today – I have a super fun card to share with you.  It’s called a Shutter Fold – cuz the inside opens and closes like a camera shutter!  And it’s really not too hard to make, either.  I’ve posted a Tutorial here.  So, on this post, I’m going to show you how to decorate today’s card – not how to build the shutter card itself, okay?

This one is destined for my wonderful hubby’s 60th birthday which is fast approaching.  I’ve used some of the fun It’s My Party DSP and added the obligatory “60” with the Number of Years stamp set and the matching Large Number Framelits.  Take a look-see:
