#441 – Animal Outing – August 15, 2018


I received this gorgeous card from fellow Stampahowlic teammate, Lorri Heiling.  She used the “Animal Outing” bundle from pg. 27 in the catalog.  She also used the “Share What You Love” specialty DSP for the leafy green background!


Tonight is FB Live! Tune in at 8 pm CST on the Stamaphowlic Stampers FB group!

Since today’s featured set was “Animal Outing”, I thought I would share some pictures of Orion.  He is part Maine Coon and has very long hair, which has a tendency to get matted at the top.  We had him groomed with a lion cut today and I will take over his daily brushing to keep him mat free.  His hair will grow back. 🙂


A couple of “before” pictures of him this morning.


The “after” pictures.  He still is cute, not as majestic, but still my handsome guy!

Winner for today’s drawing is:  Deanie Caudle
Look for happy mail!!!

Today is….

What is your favorite way to relax?  Mine is to sleep, read or to watch a movie.

#440 – Sweet Baby – August 14, 2018


This is the cutest of all sets, “Sweet Baby” (pg. 89).  It is available as bundle, which gives you a 10% savings.


I love when a stamp set has coordinating thinlits.  No fussy cutting needed!

Today’s winner is:  Dot Alcorn
Look for happy mail coming your way!!!

or if you don’t like the Creamsicles on a stick, you could also have one in liquid form. 🙂  That is one of our favorite drinks when we go to our SU conventions in Salt Lake City!

#439 – Bridal Shower – August 13, 2018

Yesterday was Mattie’s bridal shower, so today I will share a few highlights and the favors.

I love the clear treat boxes for favors!  So easy to decorate with DSP.  Of course, a little glitter paper is wonderful too!  The treat boxes can be found on page 193.
#141699 – $7.50 for 16 boxes



Thank you to everyone who came out and shared the afternoon.  It was a festive day!!!

My three beautiful girls!!!  Janessa and the bridesmaids did a great job on the shower.


I love this picture of June Bug with her mama.  They both had on beautiful dresses to celebrate the day!

Someone loves their coffee!!!

#438 – Friendly Expressions – August 12, 2018

I love the greetings in the “Friendly Expressions” stamp set on pg. 54.  First, they embossed in white the flowers from the “Beautiful Promenade” stamp set on pg. 107. Then  they used the
Brusho Crystal Colour on pg. 202.  It makes for a gorgeous and very artistic background. They also used the “Delicate Lace Edgelits” on pg. 217.  The embellishments are “Tropical Elements” found on pg. 121.

Such a variety of sentiments to fit every occasion!


Today’s winner is:  Beth Thompson
Look for happy mail going out next week!

Today is my daughter’s bridal shower.  I will share fun pictures tomorrow!!!  My oldest daughter is in town, so it makes the day even that much more special!!!

“ ‘I AM’ are two of the most powerful words you can use to begin a sentence. The important thing is what words you use to finish that sentence. Anytime you start a sentence with ‘I am’, you are creating what you are and what you want to be. At the same time, you are also showing whether or not you are connected to the energy of God inside of you. When you choose to say, ‘I am happy, I am kind, I am perfect,’ you help the light of God inside you to grow and shine. Try saying some ‘I am’ sentences and see how the different words you choose make you feel.” ~Dr. Wayne Dyer, FB DWWD 20140802
