Happy Memorial Day …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you are enjoying your Holiday Weekend. Today’s post is dedicated to the men and women in all branches of our military who paid the ultimate price for our freedom with their life, and to those who stood with them and have now passed on.

Thank you for taking time out of your holiday weekend to stop by my blog.

God Bless America and our current military and their families.

Forever grateful ~

Simply Sunday: Birthday Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are enjoying your Holiday weekend. Today I want to share a very simple card. It’s that time of year that seems to be super busy with graduations, birthdays, weddings, and the list goes on! So keeping it simple yet having that hand-stamped card for your special gift is the perfect touch!

Today’s card is celebrating birthdays … but you can easily change this layout to a graduation or welcome baby card!

Annual15_p008_b

With just a special stamp set and our Balloon Framelit Dies, you can create a card in a matter of minutes!

The wonderful greeting you see is from our “Remembering Your Birthday” stamp set … It is on the retiring list and I just checked and the status is “Low Inventory” so if you want it, please hurry! There have been far too many of my stampin’ friends who did not get the stamp set they wanted because it retired (They do not restock when they run out of inventory … It’s gone)

As promised, here are just a few of the pics from my Stampin’ Getaway in Door County …

This is the view of the Landmark resort where Eileen and I stayed. Our room is near the center of the photo hidden by the trees …

This is the view from our room –  a beautiful shot of the sunset on our first night. Can’t beat that view unless you are right on the water …

IMG_20160523_194141-blog

 

Part of the fun of Door County is trying all the different places to eat!  One of our first stops was Wilson’s and their delicious Chocolate Malts …

IMG_20160523_114322-blog

Trust me … that alone is enough to fill you up!

If you’re looking for something fun and some good food … try Al Johnson’s in Sister Bay. We had to stop and pick up some of their famous Lingonberry Jam. We actually ate there twice, once for lunch and then back on our last day for breakfast. This place has people stopping in the streets …

IMG_20160524_122457-blog

Everyone stops to get a picture of the goats on the roof. I thought I had the perfect shot before these two fine gentlemen stepped in front of me to take their picture.

My favorite for our entire trip was the Fireside in Ellison Bay. I had the “Jamaican Pork Chops” – just listen to this … Jerk marinate pork loin with seared peaches and pears, over garlic redskin mashed potatoes and szechuan green beans! OMG …

IMG_20160524_170824-blog

The pork chops were tender and juicy and the flavor combination was out of this world.  Not too hot or spicy … but just a little kick. It was just right!

The entire staff was amazing and Chef / Owner Blake Schar came out to greet us and see if we were enjoying our meal … YES, yes I was!  The Bloody Mary was pretty darn good too.

They took good care of us and the food is awesome … If your planning a trip to Door County – be sure to stop in at the Fireside in Ellison Bay. I may sound like a commercial but they really were that good!

I’ll share one more to say good-bye for now …

IMG_20160522_200329-blog

This was a shot from the pool deck at sunset … a wonderful getaway! We are truly blessed to live in such a beautiful state! When posting pics on my facebook page, friends thought I was on a tropical vacation!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend ~

Sending a Smile Your Way …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We are one day closer to the weekend and less than one week from the release of the new annual catalog! Both are great reasons to get excited, and I have something else that will get you even more excited over the release of the new catalog … another sneak peek!

Today I’m going to share a card that Sarah Douglas (CEO of Stampin’ Up!) shared yesterday …

13246345_1200592106632406_611009076560249765_oThe beautiful designer paper comes from the “Affectionately Yours” Specialty Designer Series Paper. Don’t you just love the new embossing folder … It’s called “Floral Affection”.

The stamped flowers and greeting come from the “Love & Affection” stamp set.  All of these items can be seen on pages 44 and 45 of your new annual catalog … It’s the Affectionately Yours Product Suite!

It’s on my Wish List … How about you?

Thanks for stopping in today, hope you have a good one.
