Happy Day!

Hi stampers!  It's a happy day over here because I think Ian is potty trained!!!  We've been working on it since last weekend and I was really afraid him being sick this week might have set us back but he's been doing great!  Hooray!  Frankly, I kind of put it off because I wasn't sure how to go about it and every single thing I read contradicted something else I read, lol!  I like to do everything "just right".  So, after getting totally frustrated, I said screw it, we're winging it and it worked...kind of like I stamp...I just wing it ;-)

Like this card here, the main image had been sitting on my desk for MONTHS.  I thought maybe I had colored it before we moved...it was that long ago almost...but I realized I didn't have the new in colors when we moved, or I hadn't used them yet anyway!  Ha!



Hope you like it!  I'll update the supplies later.  I worked on the post late Sunday night and I just couldn't function any longer :-)

Fab Friday 123

Hi stampers!  Thank GOODNESS it's Friday!  It's been a week around here!  I walked into Ian's room yesterday morning to find he'd gotten sick sometime during the night and not called for us and then continued to be sick most of the day, poor guy!  Hopefully he's on the mend now!  Anyway, it's not been a very productive week for anything (except maybe laundry and anxiety, ha) including stamping and blogging.

At least I have something for Fab Friday this week though!




I did a pretty simple card but I think it's cute and a little spooky :-)  I was going to take a better picture as well but since the day went sideways, this will have to work!

I'll try to add the supplies later.  As I'm blogging this, I've hit my effort limit for the day (lol).

Happy stamping!

The Dog Ate my Card

Or pooped in my dryer...Hi stampers!  She may not have but I certainly found some in it (from laundry in a laundry basket as far as I can tell) on Monday.  The rest of the day was spent trying to get the smell out so there wasn't any stamping or blogging.  Excuses, excuses I know...but COME ON :-)

Anyway here's at least one quick card I got done on Saturday.  My color combo was inspired by some scraps I saw laying around together.


I flicked some ink on the background after I embossed it.  Hope you like it!

And I'll be shaking down the laundry for a while now...

More Merry Patterns

Hi stampers!  I should be posting and stamping fall things but as I looked back over what I have created lately, I must have been in a Christmas mood last time I stamped :-)  So, you get some more Merry Patterns today.  I don't think you'll mind....


I splattered a bit of crumb cake ink with my marker onto the background panel and there is a tiny bit of the black Vintage Crochet Trim peeking out.  Don't be afraid to use Halloween products on your Christmas cards!    I really think the combination of any Christmas color and black is so elegant!  And this plaid...it gets all the heart eyes!

If you'd like to see more of this set, check out yesterday's ADT blog hop for TWENTY projects! You can only get your hands on this one until October 31st by placing a qualifying order ($300 USD).  Get yours today!  You can order it all yourself, have a live party if you're local to the Tulsa area, or have a virtual party with me on Facebook!  It's tons of fun!  Contact me today if you're interested or have questions!

Maybe I'll get around to some fall creations this week/weekend.  How is it well into October already?

The images in this set are just too cute!  Take a look!


For our last hop featuring this set, (which you can find here) I did a lot of two step stamping which this set was made for.  For this hop, I didn't do that just to show the versatility of the set.  You could color in the deer outline or the candles or the letters in season instead of stamping them, for instance.  I simply used the deer in his sweater without the outline and I think he looks darling.  I also took a cue from a few of the samples that SU posted and make a background with the large sentiment and just stamped it randomly (which is super easy since the stamp is photopolymer).

I added some of the plaid print from the Christmas Around The World Designer Series Paper, WHICH is included in the DSP promotion right now.  You're going to want some of that, it's super cute!  And who doesn't love a deer in a sweater and some festive plaid?????


While there isn't any old olive in this particular print, it is a coordinating color in the DSP and I love how the two greens stand out from one another by having the deer stamped on old olive.

I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you're ready to hop on over to Miriam in the Netherlands.  She's going to knock your socks (or sweater) off!




Happy stamping!
