Good morning! Well – one week is (almost!) in the books! And it’s been a busy – and WET!! – one!
Sheesh – on Thursday it just rained buckets and tons. And it was cold. Really just a nasty day. My poor guys were soaked to the skin. 🙁 I’m hoping that today is a little better – but…I’m not holding my breath. Wishing I’d brought some waders! 😉
My card today is a sympathy card – don’t have a need for it now, but it’s never bad to have one on deck, right? I used the beautiful Golden Afternoon stamp set and made a super clean-and-simple card. Take a look-see:
Happy Monday, y’all! Hope you had a good weekend – or are still having it depending on how you (or your employer!) view the holiday-status of Martin Luther King Day!
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I thank you for spending part of your regular/long weekend with me! 😉 If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here is it on YouTube!
I used the new Dear Doily stamp set and bundled Doily Builder Thinlits to do a little embossing and die cutting to create this sympathy card. Take a look-see:
Happy happy Hawwmp Day!! The week is officially almost half over! And so is January. Can you even believe it?!? That means…only 11 1/2 months until Christmas!
Now THAT’S a scary thought, huh?!?
I mentioned the other day that my friend needed a sympathy card and that I’d made two for her to choose from. The first was my butterfly card from Monday. Today I’ve got the second one – this one comes from the new and lovely Golden Afternoon stamp set, to which I added some Neutrals DSP and a little Subtle Embossing. Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all, as we head into another week. Hope it’s looking okay for you – take heart from the fact that next week is a long weekend!
I’m sorry we weren’t able to do our video last night – hopefully by the time you read this they’ll have it fixed. As in fixed “good” – not just poking along at the speed of dial-up… 😉
So – I needed a sympathy card for my friend – and this is one of two that I made for her to choose from. This one uses the gorgeous Rose Trellis Thinlits and a few sentiments from the Flowing Fountain stamp set. Take a look-see:
Good morning from rain-soaked-and-soggy Georgia! Good golly! We’ve gotten so much rain in the past day or two – it’s been cray cray! Hopefully it bodes well for a non-drought-ridden summer!
One of the cool new stamp set bundles in the 2019 Occasions Catalog is called Happy Tails! The stamp set is bundled up with the Dog Builder Punch.
I’ve been waiting for a good dog stamp set – that would let me make sympathy cards for folks who’ve lost their fur-kids! Non-cartoon-y ones, and this is a great add to my tool chest!
So – for today, I paired this new bundle with some All My Love DSP to make a sympathy card for the loss of a pet – just to have on hand! Take a look-see:

Good Sunday, y’all! Tomorrow Santa will begin his whirlwind tour! Hopefully all his elves are ready!
And remembered AA – AAA – 9V and 75 C-Cell batteries! 😉
In order to ensure that all the elves have time for their last-minute preparations, we will NOT do a video tonight – sorry! This elf is going to spend the evening watching Hallmark Christmas movies! 🙂 I’ll see y’all next Sunday!
My card today should bring Spring to mind – it does for me, with its gorgeous Botanical Butterfly paper and wonderful sentiments from the Dear Doily stamp set. Take a look-see:
Happy Saturday, my peeps! Did y’all brave the elements – and the crazy crowds! – to hit the Black Friday sales? I sure didn’t! We stay pretty hunkered down on Black Friday – I hate the traffic and Wayne has zero tolerance for them (cars or people!). So…we stay home and shop the old fashioned way.
You guys did a little Online Extravaganza shopping yesterday, I saw! Yeah! There’s still today left for the Paper & Embellishments sale and then we’ll segue over into two days of Phase 2: Stamps & Kits! Then there’s two more days after THAT (Tools & Ink)! And – of course, thru the whole event, I’m offering Double Peppermints. So…it’s a most wonderful time….of the YEAAAAAAR!
Now – on a slightly different tack, my card for today features some new goodies that will be available starting on 3 Jan 19 with the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs! Lasting Lily is a wonderful 16-stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration flyer – that you’ll be able to pick up for free with a $100 purchase! And I tapped into the wonderful Hold on to Hope stamp set and Cross of Hope Framelits from the Annual Catalog. Take a look-see:
Mornin’, y’all! It’s Tuesday, so that means it’s time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge to inspire you! Today’s a color challenge and I hope you’ll come over and play along!
My card for the challenge today is a clean and simple one, using the new Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set – filled with useful sentiments in pretty little fonts – and the lovely Pressed Flowers Host Set. Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! Happy Tuesday!
Being Tuesday, it’s time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge – and this week it’s a sketch challenge!
I used a fun technique that I recently came across called the Black Ice technique. I did it on Copper Foil, using the Lovely as a Tree pine image and a sentiment from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set. Take a look-see:
Cool, huh? Looks like an icy-rain! Continue reading
