Here is another Design & Treasure mock up. 

Panic is starting to set in since we still have a lot of stamps to make and we are suppose to leave tomorrow for four shows in a row. We start with the Westin, WI show and end with Madison, WI. We have Mesa, AZ and Carson, CA in between. I think it’s going to be a long day 😜

Stamps Used: G317 Happy Birthday to you Border; H121 Birthday Present Border; B251 Gift for You Birthday Present; F217 Gift for you Swiss Dot; F227 Gift Card Value 2 inches;

Every year I design a gift card holder for the Friday night Design & Treasure. This is my 2017 mock up. That means it’s not the final project but measurements are all right!   I’m pretty happy with how it turned out – now to be able to teach 10 people how to do it in a half hour. Ahh the challenges in life πŸ™ƒ

Stamps Used: H121 KB’s Present Border; G320 Merry Christmas Border; B251 KB’s Present; F217 Gift for you; F227 Gift Card Value;

Good Morning!  So you may have noticed no posts last weekπŸ˜• Four shows in a row is very complicated and busy!

We are traveling home from Pennsylvania today. Had a great time at York.  Might have gained 10 lbs from the candy and bagels from Joyce & Keith and Bryan and Sandy.   Thanks guys! 

Halloween is coming!

Good Morning!  We are off to Strongsville, OH this morning!  The above picture is not a good way to startπŸ˜•

We came home with a problem in bearings/brakes (Kev explained it to me but I didn’t really get it) We over nighted some parts that should have arrived Tues.  Got them Wednesday afternoon. Big thunderstorm in afternoon so he didn’t get to them till around 4 pm yesterday so still finishing.  

We caught a little brake from the election!  There is a “presidential candidate ” speaking at the convention hall in Strongsville so the stamp convention got booted and can’t get in until the afternoon.  Therefore we don’t need to leave till around noon today. 😝

Stamps Used:  DD63 Dots & Lines; BB47 Fish Small; DD28 Fish lg; EE30 Best Fishes Fun Cube; D257 Fishest Birthday;
