Good morning and Happy Friday! Yeah for a weekend! We’ve got a brisket on the smoker and friends coming for dinner – life is good! I hope YOUR day is good – and that the weekend coming up is bringing the promise of something fun!! 🙂
My card today is a pretty one – and one that I’m glad to have in my stash. I hate when I NEED this kind of card – but, I DO like thinking that it will bring a smile to someone who might need it! This sympathy card uses the Nature’s Harvest stamp set and bundled Harvest Dies, along with the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder and some Awash in Beauty DSP. Take a look see:

Good morning, y’all! Hope you’re having a great week wherever you are!
An old family friend recently passed away and I needed a sympathy card, so…I pulled on my thinking cap and spent some time perusing my shelves for the perfect tool. (My Zoom the Craftroom ladies had to spend a little time staring at my back! 🤷♀️ ) I settled on the sweet Ginkgo Branch stamp set and just used it with a little sponging to make a clean, simple and elegant card for a somber need. Take a look-see:
Happy Happy Hawwmmp Day It’s the LAST day of August (sheesh – can you even believe it?!) AND the LAST day of Sale-A-Bration! Yikes! So there’s still time to get those free goodies that you haven’t gotten yet – all while taking advantage of Double Peppermints!
My card today is a challenge. A personal one. While some folks are put off and intimidated by layers and fussy cutting and bows and bling…I am intimidated by….the single layer card.
Yes. It’s true. A single layer sparks fear in my heart. So I decided to – sort of! – confront that head on. I pulled out the Full of Love and Inspired Thoughts stamp sets and simply…stamped. Take a look-see:
Good morning – again! I’ve got a second card for you today, cuz…I was really honored to be selected as a Guest Designer over on one of my fave challenges – the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! So…if you were here looking for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and the card I shared for IT – here ’tis! 🙂
The elements of the challenge worked well for a sympathy card I had in my head, so…I pulled out the Mountain Air stamp set from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and then used the cool Aspen Tree Dies, with a Very Best Occasions sentiment, to complete the card. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a fun sketch challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
We’ve got a wonderful new bundle of goodness coming on 1 July in the Jul – Aug 2022 Sale-A-Bration catalog, called Wonderful World! It’s a bundled stamp set and DSP and it’s GORGEOUS! You’ll be able to get it for FREE with a $100 purchase! Being that it’s stunning – I pulled it out. And – being that it’s an image-only stamp set, I ALSO pulled out the new Very Best Occasions stamp set – which is in the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog – ALSO coming on 1 July. Take a look-see:

Good morning , y’all! It’s Sunday and, thanks to decreasing time zones – by the time you read this we’ll be – hopefully! – back on the road for day 2 of our journey! You’ll be glad to know that Finn is dealing nicely with his first BIG trip!
This card is one that I made to replenish my sympathy card stash – we all need them at one point or another and I like to have a couple ready to go! It uses the sweet and simple – and (I’m betting!) easily overlooked! – Olive Branch stamp set. It’s really pretty and looks perfect with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Take a look-see:
Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! Hope the week is going well for you. We’re in the midst of the Virtual Incentive Trip event being put on by Stampin’ Up – and it’s been pretty amazing so far. Today is a ZOOM networking session with other achievers and…a Game Show tonight! “So You Think You Can Craft” is the name and….it sounds like it’s going to be a fun time!! 🙂 It’s not quite the same as having all of us together – on a ship – or on Maui – but…it’s a pretty solid substitute!!
My card for today is a pet sympathy card for a friend of mine. I used the new Full of Love stamp set – and the carrying-over Inspired Thoughts set. And – I did some embossing with the Into the Clouds embossing folder. Take a look-see:

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day! Hope your week is going well – and that you’re staying warm! 🥶🥶🥶🥶
I realized that my sympathy card supply was really low (like…totally depleted!) so I reached for my go-to sentiment set for such things – Peaceful Moments. Obviously this great set has other wonderful sentiments but – that’s the one I seem to pull it out for the most. And I decided to go full-on pretty and the Free Daffodil Afternoon DSP with the coordinating Daffodil Daydream bundle called my name! Take a look-see:

Well. Here we are – Monday again! What does your week look like? I hope that whatever’s on the menu/calendar will go smoothly for you!
My card today is destined for someone who’s had a rough few months, punctuated by a very bad week. So I hope it will help her to smile for just a minute and know that there are folks pulling for her and her family! I used the stunning Nature’s Harvest – with the bundled Harvest Dies– new Cork Specialty Paper, and Timeworn 3D Embossing folder (all coming on 3 Aug in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog) – combined with a fave from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – the Peaceful Moments set.
