Hello stampers and happy Thursday. Yesterday was a strange day with some crazy blog issues, but today I can finally share with you the gorgeous Bumblebee, one of the five new in colours from Stampin’Up! On this fun card you see Bumblebee cardstock in the background run through the Old World Paper embossing folder, Bumblebee ribbon on the tag and Bumblebee ink for the saying. It pairs really well with Misty Moonlight don’t you think?
There are so many wonderful new products in our new annual catalog and I sometimes get a couple of them mixed up. Tasteful Touches (page 124) and Beautiful World (page 26) both have a similar font and they have a feather stamp. I have found that I am often using these two suites together. Needless to say, the saying and the feather are both from Tasteful Touches and the patterned paper and the embossing folder are both from the World of Good suite.
Out and About
Yesterday we went to Delft which is about 25 minutes from Gerard’s house. Our trip was not as tourists but to find some things for the kitchen. I was amazed at how big this store was! It is a wholesale store for the hospitality industry and you can find all kinds of food, cooking and baking supplies, display merchandise, accessories and furniture for restaurants. Gerard was keenly aware that I could have spent all day there just browsing through. Just a little bit dangerous. The wine selection alone was vast!!
The Joy of the Beach
Every day we take Bailey for a walk on the beach which is just across the road from one of the greenhouses. It is amazing how every day it is still somehow different. There are different beautiful things washed up on the beach. The tide is different; the wind; the sun or the rain and the other people with or without their dogs. Sometimes you can even encounter a horse!! Or his rather large droppings. Apparently there are no rules against horse poop on the beach! Dog poop is another story. Either way, what a blessing to be together on such a beautiful beach. God is good!
Happy Mail in Holland contest
Please don’t forget about sending me a card in Holland! Please use current Stampi’Up! products and then I will feature you on my blog as well as enter you into a contest for the stamp set of your choice worth up to $30. I will ship it anywhere in the world if you win. If you mail it by July 31 I should get it in time. Hopefully I will be in Holland until August 29.

Ways to Support Me
Thanks so much for joining me today, and thanks for your patience. I just read online about some Dutch demos who had to go back to their regular jobs and stop doing Stampin’Up! fulltime. This was largely due to COVID19 and the loss of income from not being able to do in person classes. That is why I am asking for what I need!
