Another Grad Card


byron grad cardGraduation #2 for us.  I left this card behind for Travis to take to another graduation party this weekend!  This was for a boy so I made it a little different than Monday’s card since that was for a girl.

We had a good day for travel yesterday.  Left at 6:30 am and arrived at 8:00 pm so not too long a day.  Had supper with Ron and Sarah from The Paper Cut at hotel, then breakfast this morning and we are off again.  Late start this am since we only have an 8 hour travel day.  Looking forward to the W. Springfield show this weekend!  Have a good weekend!

Off and running this morning with lots to do!!  I’ve been singing “rain, rain, go away…” getting weary of the rain!


Birthday Wishes


birthday wishes cakeThis was one of the most popular cards at the Puyallup show this weekend.  It’s funny how we hang cards every weekend in the same spot but because of the way the show floor is laid out different cards get asked about.  I do love the colors…razzleberry and sour apple.

We are currently traveling and it has rained the entire day today which makes it a little more difficult.  We are in St. Cloud, MN and hope to make it all the way home tonight.  We want to make a stop at IKEA for a few things 🙂 love that store.  Hope your having a great day!



Thank You Cards

gratefulWe are grateful to the Puyallup area for a great show!  It was fun to see Darlene, Yara, Darlene #2, & Ruth and all the others I don’t  know by name!  We made it to Spokane last night and plan to make Dickinson, ND by tonight so a very long drive but we had great weather last night.  We saw the running horses monument as we drove last night…that was pretty cool.

Celebrating You!


celebrating you micheleeHere’s a booth favorite card!  This card was made by Michelle Pearson.   I love the art definition in the background.

We had a very long day today.  We left Billings MT at 6:15 am and arrived in Puyallup, WA at 10:30 pm and we lost an hour! We ended up sitting on the freeway for road construction for one hour.  Yikes!  it felt like 10 hours.  Glad to be here.  We used to live here so we have lots of friends here.  Anxious to see them!


Happy New Baby Giraffe

Giraffe New Baby

Giraffe New Baby

Just sent this card to TX!

Stamps used: J33 KB’s Baby Animal Border, C231 Happy New Baby, DD53 KB’s Baby Giraffe, A190 KB’s Tiny Solid Heart, F210 Fancy Rectangle

It is supposed to rain quite a bit the next few days here in MN so maybe that means some cards will be made? Hoping so.

My next project is to stamp some of these little animals on a few onesies. My last project was sewing the 1-12 on onesies for a baby’s monthly photo series. Not as easy as I thought it would be but I have some left over and am thinking the little lion, giraffe and elephant would look so cute on these (not with the numbers though)! Really excited to try it!   Monthly Onesies

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Just a Note, Uncategorized

just because coneflowerGoodness, it’s hot out there!  We have traveled across MN where is was 99 degrees yesterday!  Today as we traveled across ND and MT it was only around 80 degrees but when the sun shines on you all day it seems hotter.  It is 8 pm here and still 75 degrees but we are not complaining!  Going to eat, take a shower, and hit the bed.  The alarm will go off early and we have another 14-15 hours travel tomorrow.

This coneflower is one of my favorites and I love Hat Pins.  Sorry the picture is not so good! 🙂
