Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves for Fun Fold Friday.

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and I believe Sunday too.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the SAB Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I played along with the Double D Challenge this week. Their theme is ‘LEAVES’.

I started by scoring and folding a Sahara Sand card base at 5 1/2″ & 2 3/4″ to make a Z-Fold card. I adhered 2 smaller panels of the Peaceful Prints DSP to the smaller panels of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I put torn Post-It Notes on the top and bottom of the panel to leave a framed area. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink multiple times. Using my Blending Brushes I added some Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler Ink to the stamped area until I got the color that I wanted. I stamped the small leaves image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Old Olive Ink randomly around. I removed the sticky notes frame and stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set on the top of the panel in Old Olive Ink. I adhered the stamped panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered artwork to the front panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half.

I cut 2 leaves from a panel of Gold & Rose Gold 6 X 6 Metallic Specialty Paper using my Intricate Leaves Dies. I adhered the leaves to the stamped panel using Glue Dots. I tied a triple bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the leaves using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the 2 corners. I stamped the small leaf image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink around the larger leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it’s lined up behind the front panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaves from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Inks on the envelope front along with the splotch image in Crushed Curry. I adhered a panel of Peaceful Prints DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Gift Card Holder

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope we all can take a moment of silence today to remember those that lost their lives and lost loved ones 20 years ago. I can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing before I was glued to the television watching what was happening to us. It’s truly something that will never be forgotten. For me it was less than an hour away from my home and I can admit about how really scared I was. I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. It’s suppose to be a gorgeous one here in NJ. I’ll be working today, but I have tomorrow off, YAY!!

Today I have a gift card holder for you using some of the adorable Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper and stamp set. Here’s my card for today.

I used 2 Sale-a-bration items for my card today. I used the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Sale-a-bration Host Cling Stamp Set and the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper. The Designer Series Paper you can earn FREE with a qualifying order of $50. The stamp set you can earn FREE with either a qualifying order of $300 or if you have a workshop of $300 or more. If you are interested in getting some friends together to order, I’d be more than happy to set up a Host Code so that you can earn the stamp set along with other Stampin’ Rewards products. Just drop me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I’d be happy to talk to you about it.

I started by scoring and folding a 12″ X 5 1/4″ panel of the Penguin Playmates DSP at 4″ and 8″. On the first score line at 4″ I cut from the top of the score line to the bottom left outside corner creating the triangle. I added a very thin line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the bottom edge of the triangle and adhered it to the center.

I adhered the folded DSP to a Misty Moonlight panel using Multipurpose Liquid Gluemaking sure the triangle panel is in the front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a length of the Misty Moonlight & Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the In Your Words stamp set to a panel of Basic White cardstock in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Penguin Playmates DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my Gift Card Holder and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How was your long weekend? It’s back to work today, but it will be a nice short week.

For today’s card I used some of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order. Here’s my card for today.

I used the adorable Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Sale-a-bration Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper for my card today. This DSP can be earned FREE with a qualifying order.

I started with 2 panels of Penguin Playmates DSP and cut them both on a diagonal using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered both panels to a Misty Moonlight card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of Basic White cardstock between the DSP panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Penguin Place stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow using the White 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Penguin Place stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the penguin image from the Penguin Place stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the bow tie and hat images from the Penguin Place stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink and the beak in Pumpkin Pie Ink.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the penguin image from the Penguin Place stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the inside of the card. I adhered a panel of the Penguin Playmates DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy September!!! I can’t believe another month is gone. My daughter starts in person school today again, YAY!!! That means I get to start running her to the train station 3 mornings a week to catch a 7:30am train. She’s happy to be going back in person and to meet up with the friends she’s met online from her classes from the last couple semesters.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite Sale-a-bration sets that’s available right now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set along with Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper for today’s card.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Challenge #264.

I started by randomly stamping the large dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlia stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink around the dahlia images using the Masking Technique. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the artwork to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered 2 panels of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Pale Papaya Woven Ribbon around the panel, adhering it to the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small flower image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink and fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the end of the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink by the dahlia image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basie White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the envelope front and the leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I adhered a panel of Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep CAS Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I hope you are having a productive one.

I have a simple stamping card for you today using the masking technique. Masking is where you cover up a stamped image and stamp something over it to look like it is behind the 1st image. I used a sticky note to do my masking, which I stamp the image on and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. Here is my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep Cling Stamp Set from the Sale-a-bration catalog for my card today

I played along with As You See It Challenge #236.

I also played along with CASology Challenge # 394 ‘MASK’

I started by stamping the 1st sheep from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front. I masked the image with my sticky note and stamped the 2nd sheep image from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked that sheep also using my stick note and stamped the 3rd sheep in Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked the last sheep with my sticky note and using my Blending Brush I added Balmy Blue Ink to the top of the panel. Once I had the amount of color that I wanted I used my Blending Brush and added Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the grass image from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Granny Apple Green Ink, over the brushed Granny Apple Green.

I colored the sheep using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panels to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped 2 of the sheep images from the Counting Sheep SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the grass image in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the sheep in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Granny Apple Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sheep images from the Counting Sheep stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Thank You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you were able to do something fun. We’re in the middle of August already, I feel like it just started.

I have another quick and easy card for you today using the basics, just Stamps, Ink and Paper. Every once in a while I like to make it simple. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Sale-a-bration Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

My colors are from the Color Throwdown Challenge #655.

I started by stamping the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White card front. I masked the image by stamping the dahlia on a sticky note and fussy cutting it and placing it over the stamped image. I stamped the leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the leave fill image over the outline image in Mint Macaron Ink.

I stamped the dahlia image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set 2 more times on either side of the masked image. I removed the sticky not and stamped the dahlia fill image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Polished Pink Ink over the outline image.

I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the card front. I adhered the card front to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Smoky Slate card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline dahlia and leaf images from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the leaf fill image in Mint Macaron Ink and the dahlia fill image in Polished Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dahlia and leaf image from the Delicate Dahlias SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the leaf fill image in Mint Macaron Ink and the dahlia fill image in Polished Pink Ink. I adhered a panel of the 2021-2023 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. This beautiful stamp set is another one of the free sets you can earn from Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order of $100.

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home Fun Fold

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you are able to plan some fun activities. I get to attend my virtual monthly team meeting today. It doesn’t matter in person or virtual, they are always fun.

I have a quick fun fold card for you today using 2 of the Sale-a-bration items that are available now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home Sale-a-bration Cling Stamp Set along with the Beautifully Penned Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #518.

I also played along with Just Us Girls Trend Week Challenge #597.

I started by adhering a panel of Beautifully Penned SAB DSP to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a strip of the Beautifully Penned SAB DSP to the side of the Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of black twine from the Bakers Twine Essentials Pack around the side of the card front and tied a bow.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large image from the Feels Like Home SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a small strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Feels Like Home SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Banners Pick A Punch I made it into a banner. I cut a strip of Basic Black cardstock into a panel using the Banners Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the Basic Black banner using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Black Matte Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment, flowerpot and vine images from the Feels Like Home SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower pot image from the Feels Like Home SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Beautifully Penned SAB DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The stamp set and Designer Series Paper are both Sale-a-bration items that can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I’d be happy to help you earn these items, just ask me how. Happy Stamping!!

Updates To The Online Store For Sale-a-bration!

To enhance the shopping experience, Stampin’ Up! is making improvements to the online store—specifically the process of selecting Sale-A-Bration items while shopping.  During the August to September Sale-a-bration event, the earned Sale-A-Bration items will be selected during the checkout process.

Here are some visuals that will walk you through the new checkout process:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is screen-shot-2021-07-27-at-8.17.40-am.png

Add your items to the shopping basket and add your host code just like you normally do.  Beginning on August 3, once your order reaches $50, you will see a note at the top of the shopping basket page about redeeming your Sale-a-bration items at checkout.  Once all of the items have been added to your order, click pink the “checkout” button on the right side of the screen.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is screen-shot-2021-07-27-at-8.19.15-am.png

The next page will show you how many Sale-a-bration items you’ve earned and if you’ve earned the free host exclusive stamp set, that will be shown on this page too.  To start redeeming your free items, click the “+” sign to the right of the headings.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is screen-shot-2021-07-27-at-8.19.00-am.png

Click the little shopping basket image under the free product(s) that you’d like to add to your order.  If you change your mind, click the small icon to the right of the shopping cart button with the “x” on it.  That will remove the item from your cart and allow you to add something else.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is screen-shot-2021-07-27-at-8.19.36-am.png

If you’ve earned a level 2 item, click the “+” arrow to the right of that heading and those items will appear as options to add to your cart.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is screen-shot-2021-07-27-at-8.19.56-am.png

If you’ve earned the free host stamp set with an order of $300+, you can click the “+” button to the right of the header to add that item to your cart.

Once you’ve added your items to the cart, the “continue” button on the upper right will turn pink and you can click on it and then check out like you normally would.  If you don’t want the free items, you can chose to “check out without using my rewards” but you will not be able to cash in those free items later.  So make sure that you add the items that you’d like before you check out!

Hopefully these changes will make the store easier to use and navigate for Sale-a-bration!  You’ll see the addition of the Sale-a-bration items to the checkout process beginning on August 3 and running through September 30.  Let me know if you have questions as you start placing those orders on Tuesday!

HAPPY SHOPPING!!!

Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep Sliding Gate Fold for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday the 13th morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. Is anyone superstitious out there? I’m not. My daughter and I along with my nephew, niece and her 2 boys, spent all day yesterday on the beach. I took the day off from my daily life and went and sat, walked swam and jumped waves for 8 hours yesterday. It was AMAZING. We had such a beautiful HOT day, but on the beach you don’t even feel the heat, especially when your in the water as much as we were. The sunburn today is telling me a little different. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day Saturday and attending my virtual team meeting on Sunday. We have a lot of fun even at our virtual meetings.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you were able to watch me, you were able to see what not to do when making this card. Luckily I was able to fix it without having to redo too much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep Cling Stamp Set along with the Sheep Dies for my card today. I also used the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Cling Stamp Set for the sentiments. All 3 of these items are from the August-September Sale-a-bration Catalog and are free with qualifying orders.

I started by adhering 2 panels of Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper to Basic White mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the 2 layered panels to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the sliding mechanism I started by cutting a Bermuda Bay panel with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered a small panel of the Basic White cardstock to the back of the scalloped rectangle using Stampin’ Seal. I scored 2 of the Basic White panels and folded them in half. I adhered the 2 folded panels folded edge in on the back of the scalloped rectangle. I adhered another one of the small Basic White panels on top of the folded panels using Stampn’ Seal. On the last small Basic White panel I stamped the grass image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I cut a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper using the fence die from the Sheep Dies and adhered it to the Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I removed some of the ink using my Color Lifter to lighten the color. I cut the sheep out using my Sheep Dies and embossed the sheep using my Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the party hat image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut the image out using my Sheep Die. I colored the hat in using my Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the hat to the sheep using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sheep to the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the balloon from a scrap of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and adhered it to the sheep. I adhered the artwork to the scalloped rectangle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Artistry Bloom Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the artwork

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the image in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image below the sheep in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image from the Counting Sheep stamp set below the sheep in Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered a panel of Pattern Party Hose DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!
