Hi stampers.  Feels like Monday since having yesterday off for the 4th.  It has not been a great week around here and yesterday was no exception and I'm sick so it really does feel like a Monday and the fact that I never in my 30+ years remember a 4th of July where people shot off fireworks to the extent they did last night.  Geez!  Some of us need to sleep because we have to work!!!!  Ok, I'll quit whining now :-)  I hope you either got a good night's sleep of better yet you have today off!  Oh and you aren't sick!  I'd like to call in but there really isn't anyone to cover for me so hopefully I'll feel better once I'm up and around...

So how about some happy stuff since I'm all doom and gloom today? LOL!  I got a big box of stuff the other day from the Holiday mini or seasonal catalog.  I went a teeny tiny little bit nuts I think!  I'm afraid to count the number of stamp sets I got...eep!  Do you ever open the box and say whoa?  Did I order all that????  LOL!

So, I always have a hard time deciding what to dig into first but this time it was pretty easy as I didn't get any Halloween stuff and logically Thanksgiving would be the next holiday and I LOVE the turkey day sets this year!  I'm still struggling with my mojo so I wanted clean and simple...or at least simple and this set lends itself so well to that!  It's based loosely on the sample in the catalog.
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Truly grateful
Paper:  Confetti white, very vanilla, soft sky, sweater weather DSP
Ink:  Sahara sand, chocolate chip, soft sky, crushed curry, tangerine tango
Accessories:  Triple heart punch, natural trim, aquapainter (for splatters)

Who would have thought those colors would look so yummy together?  And I can't wait to show you something soon that I did with something that coordinates with this didn't make it on this first card simply because I forgot about even getting it (because I actually put IT away where it belongs....which I did NOT do with the rest of the stuff from the box currently sprawled out all over my floor, lol).

I hope to be back soon with some Christmas in July :-)

Happy stamping!


  1. Hi Mindy, I agree that the Thanksgiving sets are great this year! Love your use of these stamps and what a great color combination! I , too opened my preorder box and said...yikes! and I wonder why I have so many retired sets every year..some only used once (egads)....hope you feel better!

  2. I couldn't convince myself to buy this stamp set but I don't know that I'll be able to resist if I see more samples done with it that are as awesome as this one. Maybe I'll get lucky and win it at convention ...

  3. I love your card (as always). That set is totally on my list.

  4. Sorry it has been a yucky week - and I can totally relate to feeling crappy, having to work the day after the 4th, and having too MANY fireworks go off in my neighborhood last night! ( and I LOVES me some fireworks, too)

    For the record, your "lack of mojo" is NOT apparent to the naked eye, lol - you STILL continue to produce BEAUTIFUL works of art. I absolutely LOVE your style! Hope your weekend finds you feeling better : )

    Artisan Finalist or not this year, you are a WINNER in my book!

  5. Wonderful card!! So artistic. I wish I could just collage the elements of my cards together so nicely. I hope you feel better soon. :)


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
