Winnie the Pooh, how do you do?


How Do You Do, Winnie the Pooh?  I Love this lil guy and his band of friends!  He DOES deserve a day all to his own!  TODAY IS IT!!
 
 
National Winnie the Pooh Day
This beloved collection of stories, first published in 1926, was inspired by the teddy bear of author A.A. Milne's son, Christopher Robin, who himself became one of the stories' characters. The original Winnie-the-Pooh (and hyphens too!) was named for Winnie, a black bear at the London zoo, and Pooh, a swan Christopher encountered while on vacation. While one might expect this naming combination to lead to a sort of bear/swan hybrid in Milne's stories, the result was actually the adorable honey-loving bear we've all come to know and cherish.
 
 
So, with my Color Coach, Big Shot, some Punches, Stampin' Write Markers and the Carry On stamp set this cute little card came to life!
 
 





Using the (Of Course!) Honeycomb Embossing folder from the Spring Mini, the Apolocary Framelits and the Bigh Shot... the English 'Keep Calm' ties this pounched Winnie the Pooh into his 'heritage' and histroy!  I hope that YOUR Day is Honey Sweet!


Piglet sided up to Pooh from behind, "Pooh" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing." siad Piglet taking Pooh's paw.
"I just wanted to be sure of you.'


Thank you for coming by, taking a look and leaving a comment. 
What can you celebrate?  I hope it's life, I'm trying to!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
