Good Morning and brrrrrrr….the East Coast (along with many other states) have had the COLDEST weekend and we are to get some snow/ice today. Snow is o.k. but ice is scary. I will stay put if we have ice!

Today is the last day to get several of the Sale-a-bration items as they were for a limited time and today is the last day…..but have no fear – tomorrow you will see 3 new goodies that will make  you smile. Please click here and see the Sale-a-Bration Flyer as these are the (3) that are leaving tonight!

  • Hello (this is how I made the paid)
  • Sky’s the Limit  – click here and then here to see a super cute post I did with this
  • Perfectly Artistic DSP

Let’s get to this card and then at the end of the post I am going to answer a couple of questions about yesterday’s post….I am so glad that you likes it….it truly was a fun one to do and I am surprised that it is so easy!

I love PLAIDS….I love POLKA DOTS…I love STRIPES!

Today the FUN FACTOR of this card to me is the plaid but then again, that darn PEEP is super cute! How did I do this – EASY!

You have heard me blog this before….2 staples that are a necessity in my opinion in our craft area are a mechanical pencil (as I think the lead is softer and easier to erase) and also a good eraser, I like the brand “Magic Rub”……

All I did was take a scrap piece of thick white paper and drew lines faintly with a pencil every 1/2″ – I know that this is rather “type A” but I am being totally honest as I am all about the end result. Using the Stamp -a- ma-jig I stamped the 4 colors….crushed curry, bermuda bay, melon mambo and cucumber crush.

I realize that the “peep” is in So Saffron, but the crushed curry worked better and created a POP! After I did the stamping, I simply erased the lines and then used the square framelits to cut the plaid piece and then used the next size larger to mat it with bermuda bay.

I lifted the focal part to make it shine and this is such an easy thing to do that always makes an impact. As far as the little peep…..I did a SUPER QUICK fussy cut of him….please do not stress about this….just do it – remember…it is “handmade” not “hallmark”

This was super fun to do and once I completed it, I smiled. There is something about fun colors and plaids that make me smile. I am sure that many of you think that this process takes a bunch of time….but it is not bad at all and I think that the end result is worth it – I made (3) for my PEEPS….as this is my “pet name” for them.

Let’s chat about this envelope….are you smiling? I think that this is the “icing on the cake” and makes such a fin statement. Why did I do that thin strip of bermuda bay? EASY  = type A Susan did not like the way that the polka dots were when I trimmed the excess off!

I have found that using the good old “green glue” works wonders with envelopes! I often get asked…..does it get torn up in the mail? No, I have not had feedback that envelopes have been torn up and when you can, walk your “work of art” into the post office and ask them to hand stamp them.

Please do not miss the boat to get these Sale-a-bration goodies that are leaving us at the end of today! For every increment of $50.00, you can pick a FREEBIE – simply the best time of the year with Stampin’ Up!

Now to some feedback to the post yesterday….YEP – I will do a video for you….Wednesday! I purchase the Stick It from amazon…..I hate to say this as it is Sunday as I type this…I had a Amazon delivery today…they are AMAZING !!!! I say, when in doubt – go to Amazon!

Enjoy the day and until tomorrow!
