Catching up after the long weekend

Good morning everyone!

Sorry for the hiatus over the weekend. I thought I had my Friday Mashup post set to auto post (which I didn't--eek!) So I'll start with that! We made the trip South to Anchorage for wrestling tournaments, my son took 2nd for Greco Roman (his first time wrestling that style) and 1st for freestyle in his weight divisions! I also played some roller derby and we got a snow storm! Fun times!

Friday Mashup has a fun sketch and theme for these next 2 weeks! Sadly, it will be the last mashup :(

"Welcome back to the Friday Mashup.. It's with a heavy heart that I announce that this will be our last challenge here at the Mashup! We will be approaching our 5 year Anniversary in just a few weeks and it has been a Fantastic journey with you all. I want to say a Huge Thank You to my Amazing Design Team Past and Present... without them I wouldn't of been able to keep the ship a float. 

And a Huge Thank You to the fans as well.. each week you came back and played along with the challenges and we loved seeing everyone's take on the Challenges. We've made a lot of great friends along the way and look forward to seeing more work from you all around your Blogs! 

This week's Challenge is a Sketch and we're Mashing it up with Easter!!!"

The Friday Mashup was the very first challenge blog I ever played along with, so it's sad for me personally that this is the last challenge. 

Here's the challenge!

Here's my take on the sketch!

What a fun set, right? This is last year's "For Peeps Sake" stamp set and Watercolor Wonder (ret) paper set. I though it was just perfect for an Easter Card.

Also, exciting things happening for my little ol' blog! I recently purchased the domain name (YAY!) and starting using TAMS for my supply list! I know, I'm just catching up with the times!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a stamptastic day!!

Tranquility in Tulips

Good morning friends!

Do you ever see a stamp set and not fall in love with it until someone else posts something awesome with it?

Not me. Never.

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, we are fortunate to be able to order select items early when a new catalog is about to be released. I LOVED a lot on the pre-order, but not enough to initially buy, ya know? That Tranquil Tulip set stood out to me, but I held off. Then I saw a video using the tulip set and a Label Me Pretty set, which I wasn't a fan of at all.

I. Fell. In. LOVE.


Fast forward to today when both packages are now here and I am in happy stamping bliss land.

Here's what I came up with:

For Mother's Day there were some beautiful purple tulips in my bouquet- which unfortunately made their way to the trash today. I memorialized them with this card. I also wish the Wood Textures DSP would be all in this one pattern, I just LOVE it. Its gorgeous and reminds me of one of our old barns growing up, which had tulips gr…

Earning Alaska First Purchase!

Twice in one day?!

I know, how lucky are you!! Lol!

This afternoon, I am excited to be taking part in the Earning Alaska 2018 blog hop again!! This is a group of demonstrators who are working together to reach their fullest potential and earn the Stampin' Up 2018 incentive trip, which is an Alaskan cruise through the southeastern islands! Exciting right! It's an area that since moving to Alaska I've never been, with the exception of Juneau for a roller derby trip a few years back.

This hop is chalked full of talented demonstrators! They inspire me daily!!

The theme of this hop is "First Occasions Catalog Purchase!" Which is exciting because have you seen the thing! It was page after page of awesome! I have an obsession with birthday stamps. A girl can never have too many!! That said, the first item on my list was the Party Animal suite! I had to have it all. The best part is that SU and Sizzix did a great job of making sure the existing balloon punch coordinated…

Pleated Easter Fun!

Good morning! 
As you know, I'm party of a monthly swap group with 9 fabulous ladies in San Antonio and this month's theme was Easter or birthday. Since I already have a TON of birthday cards (they're just SO easy to make) and a stamp set that hadn't been touched yet, I chose to do Easter!
It's more spring, than Easter I found, but......that's fine. Growing up in Wisconsin, (and not from a religious background) easter was the gateway to spring! Green grass, a crisp warming of the air, puddles and bike rides. In Alaska, its snow. That's it. Just snow. Even though it has been really mild this winter. :)
Because of all this snow, I've been in the springtime mood. I've been gravitating to a lot of bright colors and flowers! I just can't get enough of them right now!
After a little pinterest and Stampin' Connection (a service only available to Stampin' Up! Demonstrators) I stumbled upon a pleat card and the rest of my project fell right into…
