Did you see the new Occasions Catalog and the Sneak Peeks I’ve provided in previous posts?  Well, today is the day you can order them!!  No more waiting!  I still have quite a bit on my wish list from the catalog – what’s your number 1 must have?

I do have a project to share with you today featuring yet another stamp set in the Occasions catalog.  I also love this set – great for any occasion and especially great for making cards for the men in your life.  Don’t get me wrong – it is not exclusively just for guys – but it does well for those cards.  Here it is:


Aren’t those deer just adorable?  I decided to play along with the color challenge this week at Global Design Projects – #GDP017 which is to use Garden Green, Rose Red and Crumb Cake.  I was going for a Cherry Blossom look for my tree – not sure I achieved it – but I am pretty happy with how it turned out.  What do you think? Even with that touch of pink, I think it still works for a male birthday card (good thing, as I have 6 of them in my family that celebrate in February!).


And lastly, the winner of the Blog Hop candy is Phylis Sinclair! Congratulations Phylis!!  Enjoy your new Going Global stamp set and DSP stack!

Thanks for stopping today!



Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2016!!  I am looking forward to the new year and all that it brings!  Stampin’ Up! is kicking off 2016 with a new mini catalog – the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration!  Both of these start on January 5 – just two days away!

Today I have a few cards using the new Picture Perfect stamp set from the Occasions Catalog – I just love this set – it is my favorite by far!  The hummingbird stamps just drew me in – as I love hummingbirds.  Over the holiday, I was sent a video tutorial from the talented Lydia Fiedler, you can check out her blog here.  I CASEd her hummingbird colors in the card on the left.  I also tried a few of my own color combinations – and was happy with the So Saffron/Crushed Curry on the right.Hummingbirds_small

I need to play around with more combinations – as hummingbirds are very colorful.  I also need to restock my Thank You card pile and my birthday pile – as I will do better this year about sending cards – because who doesn’t love getting some happy mail?

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are inspired by today’s cards and are getting your wish list ready for Tuesday!
