Happy May Day and Happy Birthday to my Puppy! And a Clue to Boot!

Yes, another birthday in our house today! My lab/basset is three today! Don't worry Scavenger Hunters, no need to change yesterday's answer....

"Lucy" definitely knows it's her birthday -- she has been prancing around the house all morning. I think she would like some of my mom's leftover birthday cake!

Happy May Day! And oh my! Yesterday was 78 (but of course the forecast for today is only for 60) and my crabapple trees opened up in one day!! Take a look:

And a close-up:
I have three trees and they are all so pretty right now!!And now for Scavenger hunt Question # 5: How long have I been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator? When you find the answer, post a comment here and tell me what kind of adhesive is your favorite for your cards (I am always running out!). Thanks so much for stopping by today! I appreciate each one of you! I hope you are having fun with the game!

These are way easy - I found it! My favorite adhesive is my ATG gun - I love it! It is easy to use, the tape is very inexpensive, and it sticks really, really well - better than any tape I have used before. I even use it to adhere ribbon on cards.

14 years!! And my favorite at this time would be the Mono, but I am leaning on going for the ATG!!

Debi said...

Your trees are gorgeous!
I found the answer to #5!
I used MonoAdhesive most of the time, however I also use 3M's double stick tape as well.

Lizette said...

Your trees are so pretty ! Great pics. And Happy Birthday to your puppy !

Patty said...

That one was super easy. I haven't actually used any adhesives yet :-/. I am new to this stuff, so I don't have very much and I haven't ventured passed simply stamping onto cardstock yet :) That's why I read all these blogs for ideas though!

Allison said...

Got it! The trees are gorgeous. Everything is still so brown here.
My favorite is the SNAIL adhesive - I'm too messy with anything else.

Lori Barnett said...

You sell Stampin'UP! NO WAY!! LOL

My 1/4" ATG gun is about the best adhesive for basic all around stuff. It sticks...it's inexpensive....it's da bomb diggity! I have 2 guns...the 1/4" and the bigger one :) Oh...I also love Uhu glue sticks. I have like 100 of them. I KID you not! I don't ever want to run out. HA! (I got a smokin' deal on them in bulk!) That's how I glue paper to chipboard. Works great!

Gorgeous trees! :) My fav is Tombo Multi for sure!!

Denise... said...

I found it! My fave is also my ATG gun. LOVE that. So worth it, and I don't know how I got along without it!!!

Anne said...

Found the answer too.
I'm so jealous of your weather, I'm up in Canada so it's pretty bare around here.
Adhesive for cards, I use double sided tape from the dollar store, sticks great. Use gluestick only for sticking pp to chipboard (hate gluestick).
I would love to try the ATG gun though.

I found it....
I use SNAIL, but I'm not always in love with it, I mainly use it because I sell it!

Happy May Day-Beautiful crab apple tree. Your photos are delicious!

Found it!

I use mostly Scotch Double Sided tape on all my cards and some Mono Multi (green bottle) as well as glue dots. I still have the first card I made last year and it is still sticking. A friend uses the tape runner from SU and the BD card (Feb. 08) she made me has lost some of its parts! Makes me leary of using it.

I use double stick tape most of the time, but had a chance to try an ATG gun at a card class. So now I'm saving my money for one!

Laurie in MN said...

Found the answer.

I use Tacky tape most often.

I would love to buy an ATC gun. I forget to check out the 3M store where they sell some products at a discount.

Angel said...

Yep, this is fun! And oh, I tried your recipe today ~ SOOO YUMMY!!! Thanks! Ok, got the answer and as for adhesive, I usually use the duck brand that Wally world sells 4 in a pack for less than $9! And Happy Birthday to your pup!!

nancy said...

I know the answer! Love your trees! They are so beautiful!

Lucy! Happy birthday, oh, black one! You are the Princess!

I've tried some different adhesives, and my current favorites are Tombow mono, the red double stick for heavier duty use, and Scotch wall mount squares for dimensionals.

Amy Sheffer said...

Found today's answer (by the way, WOW!!). I haven't found an adhesive I'm in love with (no ATG yet, could that be the one?), but I make do with mono most of the time.

Amy Sheffer said...

Forgot to mention the beautiful photographs of the crabapples, too!

abr said...

Your being kind now, I still can't wait to maybe talk about clue 2....
My fave adhesive ATG all the way.

My gosh, your trees look amazing, ya gotta love it.
Its been ok weather wise here, but tonigh is cooling off and possible SNOW, I think I am seriously going to start laughing about the weather soon. Right big thunder and lightning. Ok probably more than you wanted to know.

Lee (LuvLee on SCS) said...

Oh WOW!! What gorgeous blooms!!! We had a few inches of snow today!!! LOL No blooms yet!! I'll just enjoyed yours!! Okay....got the answer.......and I LOVE my ATG gun!!! LOVE it!!!!

Lastel said...

I found the answer ! My fav adhesive is Mono-multi with mono adhesive as a very close second . Some day I will invest in an ATG gun , I hear they are awesome !

Anonymous said...

Love how you copied the crab apple! My favorite adhesive depends on the project. Most of the time, I use the ATG, but for small pieces, it would be mono-multi or plain ole' scotch double stick.

LOVE this game! Clues are so easy though! I tend to use snail or tombow...depending on the card!

java diva said...

phew, another easy one! ;) It's too hard to have a favorite b/c they each have their pros/cons and I will favor one and then move on and come back. I was using Scotch double-sided for a while. And then I discovered Tombow multi, loved it at first. Now it's too messy for me. I think I hear that ATG gun calling my name!

Judy these pictures are terrific, also love the hummingbird ones below. You have so many great things here to look at (including the receipes!) I could spend all day. Congrats on your Year!
