STAMPIN' UP! - Swirly Scribbles Dies

I thought I had scheduled cards for Monday and Tuesday, but I'm afraid I've been really unfocused ever since the election.  My husband and I decided we needed to get away for a few days to relax and regroup.  It was a quick trip......we left Saturday morning and got home yesterday.....but it really helped.

We have a habit of finding some unusual places to visit.  Minnesota's Largest Candy Store was something that had us going "WOW"!   You will find it outside of Jordan MN.  Red Wing MN provided a couple of other stops......the Red Wing Shoe store which has a little museum with it (and it's free)...........and the Red Wing Stoneware and Pottery.  Our town had a celebration a few years ago and had Red Wing crocks made to sell with a special emblem on them and my husband wanted to visit them. Naturally I had to purchase a cute little stoneware casserole dish. 

Door County WI was our other stop.  A lot of the shops were closed for the season but we aren't really big shoppers anymore so it was just good to spend a little time there and relax.  If you ever go there, Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant is a great place to have breakfast and The Wild Tomato is a great place for pizza.  Now it is back to normal routine.

As I do so often I turned to Pinterest to make a card using this recent purchase from Stampin' Up!  I needed a card for an Artist's Choice card swap  I saw one like this on Pinterest and it was a really easy card to CASE.  I used a different sentiment on the front.  It appears to be crooked but that is the way it is on the wood mounted stamp.

I added Stick-It to the back of the Pumpkin Pie card stock before cutting the three "pumpkins".  The leaves are from an SU dp.  After adding the leaves I used the SU marker to add the stems.

I'm really going to enjoy these dies......I've seen so many great cards using them.I almost didn't by the coordinating stamps.  I was afraid I would want them later and then I wouldn't benefit from the "bundled" price.

Thank you for stopping by today!

I love my card that you made me! Such a clever way to use them.

You had a fun trip! I have eaten at Al Johnson's and have seen the goats on the roof! We stayed at Stone Harbor which is a wonderful place to stay! And we enjoyed Red Wing as well. We too toured the Red Wing pottery place and watched them make the pottery and I bought a few pieces. Also Red Wing shoes was a fun place to visit, but we were hoping to find Bill's favorite shoes that they discontinued. No luck. I think that is also the place where parts of Grumpy Old Men was made and we went to the site. We stayed at the St. James hotel there. It was amazing!!


This really is a CAS (Clean and Simple) card but I really do like it.  The papers are from Stampin' Up! and the butterfly is from t...
