Rainy Thursday

Hi Everyone!

It is such a rainy day today. Started out raining last night, kept raining, dried up a tad, then it rained more!

I'm not complaining, God knows we need the rain (or more accurately the snow pack in the Sierra's) and from what I hear the snow pack is leveling up nicely. 12-16 feet in Mammoth is what they are saying, so YAY!! Maybe California will be green this year or at least they won't scream when we water our plants.

But I digress!!

Sale-A-Bration is going strong in its second week and I want to make sure that everyone I sent catalogs out to HAS them now. The last I saw from my tracking number the final catalogs were scheduled to arrive today or tomorrow. Now I know the weather is MUCH worse in other parts of the country so if it didn't get there today, I sort of understand. I guess I'm not great at patience... :D

Take a look at this card I made while we wait for your catalogs to get there:

This is a really neat set called, "Beautiful You!" and it is so simple to make. The part that is the woman's dress with the scribbled color is actually a whole other stamp! Couldn't be easier. What I especially love is that while it is fun to make stuff matchy-matchy, you don't have to. I have a TON of other background I could have used, I just felt like doing it this way for this set of cards. I was thinking of having a class at my house featuring this set of cards and if you are interested please let me know. The class will be around 2 hours long and you will go home with at least 6 cards with envelopes.
This card is from another cute set that I'm falling in love with, "Cupcakes and Carousels." It comes with this cute carousel horse plus a beautiful detailed merry-go-round too and some really sweet sentiments. This can be a future class or some form of this card. I want to play with it a little more first.
Gearing up for another giveaway. There's a lot of neat holidays on our horizon, I was thinking of doing something Valentine-related for a giveaway. Let me know your thoughts here on this blog post!

In the meantime, please stay safe and dry where ever you are.
Take care!


  1. these cards came out AMAZING!! gonna steal the idea!! LOVE!! 💞💖😘🐴

    1. Thank you, Ingrid. I love this set so much!! The oval shapes really make them extra special. I could have used the same color as the card base but instead I used black as the outer oval shape because I had a black layer and the black against the white always makes it POP. If I used one of the colors then I think I would have made the card base white. Either way, it is a super fun stamp set and there is so much to create with it. I'm working on a card using the other lady the one who looks like she is dancing.
      So pretty!!
