This past weekend was a mini-late-anniversary vacation to Cape Cod. Minus a stomach bug - which made all seafood very unappealing, and a broken down SUV for the first two out of four days, and a $400 mechanic bill, it was a good time. Really, it was! It is the most beautiful time of the year to enjoy the Cape without the throngs of tourists, traffic and high season prices!
Here is the view outside our apartment:
No visit to Provincetown would be complete without a Bloody Mary from the infamous "Lobster Pot."
Yes, it is nearly ketchup thick! But, it is the quaint boutiques, book shoppes, cafés, gardens and antiques (or "MANtiques" as they are advertised in P-town) that I love most.
And, for today's Tea for Tuesday post, joining up with my fellow T'ers again this week, while the Bloody Mary would suffice, how about the joys in finding what has to be the world's largest red Solo cup! Hmmm, any thoughts what we should fill It up with?
Do you have NBUS? Do you have a LOT of NBUS? Do you have so much NBUS you don't know what to do with it?
Well, let me tell you, you are not the only one with NBUS! I have NBUS too!
I'll show you mine, if you show me yours!
Hey, woah! Easy there, tiger! Super Stamp Girl is a PG site.
NBUS - Never Before Used Schtuff
We all have it, but today's challenge is TO USE IT!
I bought this fun motorcycle stamp set at the Heirloom Productions Stamp Show at the Big E in June. Wow, it's actually only 3 months old. That's pretty good, because let me tell you some of the other NBUS in my craft room could probably make it into the Smithsonian! Or, maybe MOMA. . .
I believe the set is from Our Daily Bread. My friend Ginny from Maxam Made really turned me on to their products. It is a great set for any biker dude in your life. Combine it with Tangerine Tango and Basic Black, Harley Davidson's two favorite colors, and you've got one bad a$$ card! (Hey, I told you this was a PG site!)
So, what are YOU waiting for!? Dust off your NBUS and show me what you've got!
I remain wishy-washi about washi tape, but it’s all the rage right now in papercrafting!
Actually, it has been for a while, I have just refused to accept it.
But, for one night, I’m going to find my inner washi woman and embrace it. . .
Come join me on
Tuesday, September 16th, 6:30-8:30 pm
in my studio and let’s get Wild with Washi (or not) together!
Call or email me at email@example.com to RSVP today.
Yes, it's post #2 for today. And yes, I am featuring one Halloween and one Christmas card all in the confines of the 4 minutes it takes me to complete an upload. Hey, with card makers, it's always a holiday of one sort or another!
This spooky Halloween card was created for the Mojo Monday #362 sketch challenge:
Are you scared yet?
Strangely enough this card was made out of nearly all retired Stampin' Up! products. I don't do that too often. I do tend to incorporate something new in every card I make, but clearly I bought too many stacks of "Witches Brew" Designer Series Paper, and, considering the stamp set is entitled the "Best of Halloween," can it really ever go out of style?
Super Stamp Girl loves comments. Kindly leave yours below!
This is the second week in a row that I have joined in with the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge and I must say, I'm kinda diggin' the all-Christmas, all-the-time feeling. I was a bit skeptical if I could do Christmas so early, but, as it turns out, I'm not the Grinch I thought I was!
Ha ha, Mom, I know you're laughing at me now.
The theme selected by the talented Debbie Henderson (a fellow Maine-iac) this week was "transportation." Trucks, sleighs, deer, you name it. Anything that moves is fair play.
I hope my card will evoke many a childhood memory of sledding in the midst of winter, the joys of being a child, when frost bitten toes and bone numbing cold couldn't keep you inside.
Thanks for visiting. I love reading your comments!
Happy Wednesday to you! We are halfway through another workweek. My goodness, has anyone noticed that it is now darker in the morning? Oh, how it makes getting up all the more difficult. If I were a bear, I'd be thinking how good hibernation sounds right now!
Today's card is for the sketch challenge at Fab Friday:
I love, love, love fall! I love everything about it from apple cider, apple pie, apple cider donuts, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes. . . Are you seeing a theme here? Okay, aside from all the yummy foods of fall, I also love the crisp fresh air, the changing of the leaves, plus it's sweater and boots season! Fall cards are also my favorite theme or holiday to prepare for.

Happy Fall Y'all! Thanks for visiting and have a S-U-P-E-R day!
Tonight is "Techniques Wednesday" class in my stamping studio. We are playing around with "Scratch-n-Sniff" cards and the stained glass look. Here are the cards we'll be making:
Sorry, there are no more sign-ups at this time to attend tonight's class, but be sure to book now for the next Technique Wednesday on October 8th. We'll be doing the "Smackdown" technique and "Shaker cards."
World Card Making Day is October 4. What a perfect reason to join with card makers around the world to do what we love-make cards! We wouldn't miss celebrating this unique holiday for anything. (Seriously, you missing World Card Making Day is like Santa missing Christmas!)
So, come to stamp camp that morning from 10-12 in my studio and then join us as we visit the craft rooms of 3 lovely ladies in our stamping circle and see what their crafting spaces look like! Cards and a craft room hop - what a great way to celebrate World Card Making Day!
The holiday catalog has been a hit so far, but we're thinking that it really isn't possible to have too much of a good thing! So this year we're going to give you a little end-of-year boost by offering some additional Christmas-themed products in a small, printed publication - the 2014 Holiday Supplement! Keep watching to see more new products!
First, let's check out a NEW photopolymer stamp set:
There's something for everyone on the Weekly Deals specials:

Hello friends and fellow T-ers! I've got some fun pictures for you today from a recent trip to my local Christmas Tree Shops store. For those of you unfamiliar with the Christmas Tree Shops - it's like a bargain hunters paradise for anything and everything you could ever want or need, or not want and not need! I went in for dinner napkins and picture frames, but then I got to the kitchenware aisle and stood there staring at all the coffee mugs for a good 20 minutes or so:
And, for all my UK readers, I did think this one was adorable!
For those of you wondering, of course I bought a new mug! For only $2.99 each, how could I resist? It's amazing I didn't buy one of every mug there for that price! But, I can't show it off to you just yet. . . I'll save it for a special post next week!
Did you see one mug here that you liked? Let me know your favorite.
To see other drink related posts or artwork, join up with Elizabeth and Bleubeard and other T'ers here.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you all have a S-U-P-E-R Tuesday!
Greetings, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
I have no challenge cards for you today, but rather a fun grouping of cards made with the new "Work of Art" stamp set. I think you can see here how versatile this set really is. It inspires your inner artiste!
I hope this set inspires each of you to be a "Work of Art." Have a S-U-P-E-R day!
