Goodies from my secret pal





Hooray!  I got another goodie package from my Stampin' Up secret pal!  I really love the extra package of candy dots that she included.  How fun!  It was like Christmas in July!

Happy stamping!

Mondays are great!


What a great way to start a Monday!  I stepped outside to do some early morning yard work and discovered the Mr. Brown had delivered a goodie box to my door step.  Now to get him to deliver without paying for the goodies...lol!  I agonized over what to order this past week so, when my wonderful friend Julie called, I had her help me decide.  I clearly have not spent enough time in the catalog and plan to rectify that situation soon! 

Today is sadly not a stamping day.  I worked on some yard work (Mt. Mulchmore still exists in the front yard) and plan to tackle the stair well again.  I started to paint it before I realized that I had mono for the second time and recently finished my bout with mono for the third time so the downstairs REALLY needs to be finished.  Now that I am feeling better I am hoping to start entertaining again.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a stamping day after yet another doc appointment.

Happy stamping!

Pop Up dies card

Hello and happy Wednesday!  This is a fun card to create and doesn't take long to whip up.  My initial card was full size but then the flower was too "tall" to fit into the card.  I cut 2 1/4" off the height of the card so that I can cut the flower about half width above the crease of the card.

Stamps:
Flower Patch

Colors:
Tangerine Tango
Whisper White
Mossy Meadow

Goodies:
Large pearls
Big Shot
Flower Patch framelits
Removable tape or washi tape (in case you need help to position the framelit)
Dimensionals (behind the flower to pop it up)
Sponges, if desired

Happy stamping!
