STAMPtember - Day Twenty-Eight - Still Younger

Hi all.  I used one of the amazing digis from Angie Blom to create this sister-themed birthday card.  SO FUN!  Doesn't this image have sort of a vintage, Barbie-like vibe?  Love it!

STAMPtember - Day Twenty-Seven - Happy Birthday Brother!

I cannot believe STAMPtember is more than halfway over!  What a whirlwind it's been already of stamping and shopping.  SO FUN!  I don't do a lot of scenic coloring, but this was really peaceful to work on.

STAMPtember - Day Twenty-Six - Can't. Stop. Coffee.

I'm all about the anniversaries lately, I swear.  Fifteen years ago today, the final season of Gilmore Girls premiered.  I remember being so apprehensive about it because Amy was gone as showrunner (it didn't fare Dawson's Creek very well!) and season six hadn't ended well, and I was concerned about where all the turmoil with the WB/UPN/CW was going to affect things.  All in all, season seven wound up being pretty good, if you think about all the obstacles.  Anyways, enough reminiscing.  Here's my card.  I loooooove Unity Stamps because they have so many images that I consider Lorelais!

STAMPtember - Day Twenty-Three - Friendly Silhouettes

Happy 28th birthday to my favorite show, a show that needs no explanation or introduction.  A show that makes me laugh whether I've seen the episode a hundred times or a thousand.  I love it.  Always have, always wll.

STAMPtember - Day Twenty-Two - Take Two - Eighteen Years....

Eighteen years, eighteen years, she got one of your kids, got you for eighteen years....Sorry.  You know me and musical tangents.  NON VM OR TV FANS just scroll down to my card, this is gonna take awhile :D  Where was I?  Oh, musical tangents.  And music is so intrinsically linked with Veronica Mars for me.  My beloved (and forever ruined) show debuted eighteen years ago today, and I still remember that day very well.  I was in the process of switching jobs so I was working two jobs to fulfill my two weeks at the old job while starting my new one and most days I opened one store, closed another.  I was exhausted and behind on ALL my shows but somehow that day I only worked a day shift.  I wanted to take a little nap before the show premiered and I remember my mom waking me and asking if I just wanted to sleep.  The commercials for VM and the obviously comparison to Buffy (also beloved, for the first three years only) forced me to get up and I am so glad I did.  I loved VM instantly.  And though I initially hated Logan (I think everyone did) within a few episodes I'd grown to love him and LoVe will ALWAYS be one of my most favorite TV ships.

Okay TV rant over!  Here's my card!

STAMPtember - Day Twenty-One - The Way You Roll

I LOVE the 80s!  I love the music and the movies and some of the clothes and trends (crimped hair and ratted bangs can stay in the past thank you!) and the COLOR!  Lisa Frank will forever live in my head.

STAMPtember - Day Twenty - This Too Shell Pass

I love love love love love anything with seashells or mermaids or water or sand or seagulls, they're one of my favorite kinds of cards to make.  I really needed to make something happy and distracting so I made this.  I'm worried that it WON'T pass, but I have to believe that it WILL so I can get to tomorrow and the next day and the next without screaming myself hoarse and throwing things out the window. (side note: you know how on TV someone always throws clothing out of the a second-story window? I've always lived in a ranch but I've always wanted to do that!)

    STAMPtember - Day Sixteen - Flipping For Your Birthday!

    Today I'm sharing a fabulous flip card!  I always forget about these dies, I have so many of them.  I should store them somewhere else so I remember to use them more often!  Out of sight, out of mind is absolutely true!!


    I don't make enough flip cards!!


    It's been so long since I made one, and I don't know why I don't automatically go for them, they're amazing and so fun!

    STAMPtember - Day Thirteen - Cosy Cuppa

    (yes, I know we spell it COZY in the US, but I got this stamp set with a UK magazine and I really like it!)

    Happy Tuesday all!  It's really too hot out still for this kind of a fall card, for thoughts of cups of tea and pieces of apple cake, but I guess it's wishful thinking.

    STAMPtember - Day One - Resting Witch Face

    HAPPY STAMPTEMBER!!!!  The only time of year I like as much (or nearly as much) as I like Christmas is STAMPtember!!!

    If you're new here (welcome!), lemme just go over how I do STAMPtember.  I create at least one project every day, and it MUST include stamping, beyond just a sentiment.  Digis are okay, but only if they're required for a DT project or if they're Angie Blom, which this one is.  Awesome, isn't it??

    Several challenges to start out my second favorite month of the year!!

    2022 Congrats (You EARNED it!)

    I'm just popping by today to share a quick graduation card, my last for 2022.  We have a last minute grad party today (honestly the mom admitted they needed more stuff for college and had no cash to purchase. Shameless and hilarious no??) and this is the quick card I made:


    All teasing aside (you know you have it coming, Charlotte), Dayton worked his ass off the past two years, and especially this year when he staged a walkout at school to protest the patriarchy the school board was forcing on high school students without reason.  Congratulations!!!
