When it rains it pours

Hi stampers!  With the title of my blog post I wish I had a card made with the new umbrella set but I don't.  Haven't had a chance to play with that one yet! I was hoping to tonight but we got some bad news while out at dinner.  My in laws had to put their boy dog down tonight as he was showing symptoms of a brain tumor.  We are a very animal loving family and quite frankly I think most of us love our dogs and cats more than people:-)  They are always happy to see you and are never rude or yell at you and they keep all your secrets!:-)  I also lost my grandma on Friday so it's been a sad week around here. She was 91 and had a good life and I have so many great memories of her though so I'm not sad.  I'm happy she's not suffering after getting pneumonia last week and can be reunited with my grandpa.  But, hopefully things look up soon and I can get some stamp time in!

Good thing I have a few pretty things stored up to share!  This is one I came up with the other night using the little pop-up posies kit which is super cute and my new favorite thing...pool party embossing powder.  It also uses my maybe ALL TIME fave color combo....crumb cake, pool party and summer starfruit!
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Pop-up posies kit
Paper:  Crumb cake, pool party, sycamore street DSP (SAB), pop-up posies kit
Ink:  Crumb cake, versa mark
Accessories:  Pop-up posies kit, in color polka dot brads, pool party embossing powder, dotted scalloped punch, sycamore street ribbon & button kit (SAB)

I just LOVE the colors together and I love that ribbon, so pretty! And I love that DSP and the embossing powder!  Seriously it's all wonderful!  The kit comes with those cute embossed labels, three different flowers and brads to use in the center (which I swapped out in this case).  It's really for little tags but I love that you can take our kits and make other things with them!  There are so many possibilities here!

Just looking at the pretty picture cheers me up a bit!  I hope it brightens your day as well...or evening by the time I'm getting to this:-)  Best laid know....

Happy stamping!


  1. You have had a tough week, Mindy. I'm so sorry! Keeping you in my thoughts and sending a big hug your way, friend. Your card is gorgeous!

  2. Big giant Texas-sized hugs my friend. Here's hoping the month improves for us both.

  3. My heart goes out to you, Mindy! Praying for you and your hubby and families. Hugs to you, friend!

  4. Pretty card!

    Sorry for your losses. :(

  5. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your tough week, Mindy! Hugs to you! I love your card! I haven't tried that color combo before -- but I love it! I'll have to use that one soon. I think your flower looks great. Mine looked a little rough when I tried it. I had to use my paper snips on it to trim some of the edges a bit. I hope you have a good week!


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
