chill of winter

I really do love winter!  Especially when it is at least 25 degrees outside…I like that much better than below freezing 🙂  I love this winter card with the little red cardinal.

Stamps Used:  A240 KB’s Arrow Snowflake, BB57 KB’s Cardinal sm, D259 Chill of Winter, EE42 KB’s Heart Button Snowman, med.  The snowflake is a pattern from the Brother Scan N Cut !

Looking forward to 30 degree weather this weekend!

Good Afternoon!  Well, I have most of the orders done (not all but getting there!) and the dirty clothes are just about done but the house really needs some cleaning 🙂  I really need to take the time in the morning to get it clean…it’s driving me crazy.

Took the time to use the new candles stamp.  It is so versatile !  This is what it looks like…it is a mirror image stamp:


skinny and tall!  Stamps Used:  DD76 Naughty or Nice Fun Cube; F143 Happy Birthday, E266 Incredible Birthday; EE53 KB’s Skinny Candle; A237 Smile Face Small; D305 Handmade in the USA

I also used the Naughty or Nice fun cube which is really a Christmas fun cube but easily adapts to a birthday with the Wish Big side

Valentine's Day

Good Morning!  We have an incredible amount of work to do today so I’ll keep this brief! 🙂

While waiting for the vulcanizers (the ovens where we cook rubber!)  to warm up morning I grabbed some of the new stamps to make some cards.  Love this new paper airplane from Karissa!  I should have new images on website by next week.

Friendship, Hello, Just a Note, smile


Good Monday Morning to You!  We are traveling home from the Grapevine, TX show.  We had a great time in Grapevine but always glad to be heading home.  It seems like the weather will cooperate with our commute and we should have sunshine all the way home.  That makes me smile 🙂

We have made the incredible birthday stamp into a incredible day stamp!  We should have these new stamps on the website within the next few weeks.  I also love the smile embossing folder.  Always good to smile.

Have a fabulous Monday.

Thank You Cards

a simple thank you for this morning as we get ready to go set up for the Grapevine, TX show.  Hard to believe that we are starting a new year of shows again.  Where does the time go?  For those wanting to know our 2015 schedule…we did up load a partial list yesterday.  There are a few more shows that we are signed up for that we need to add.  ( we could work on the website 24 hours a day 7 days a week and it would never be done or up to date 🙂 )

Stamps Used:  A208 KB’s Oak Leaf mini; A209 KB’s Maple Leaf mini; A210 KB’s 3 Leaf mini; B183 Thank you tina

We cannot to forget to add GO PACK GO!  🙂 🙂 🙂

You are Cool!





What a cool card?  So much fun…brand new stamps!  I’ve had them a couple of days but too busy with orders to touch them.  I finally got all the orders out today so I could touch the new stamps 🙂

I found a new cool product…I wasn’t sure about it but I really like it.  It’s called Stick It.  It is a sheet of double sided tape that is made for dies.  You put it on the paper, then cut the paper, and then position the cut die very easily.  A little hard to explain.  It is re-positionable to begin with then become permanent which is a great feature.  I should be able to demo it in Grapevine and at the shows this year.  I was able to apply these little glasses very easily with it.  We will also be carrying a new brand (to us)  called Taylored Expressions in the booth this year.  We are carrying their embossing folders and a few of the dies.

Stick It

Happy New Year!

Hard to believe that it is 2015!  The years go by so fast.

Today I have a birthday card that I needed and, of course, it’s late so it’s a belated birthday card 🙂

No holiday for us today 🙂 We got a big wholesale order that needs to go out before we leave on Saturday so it’s out to the shop for us.  We did stay up to see the new year in so we are running a little late this am.  Hope your year is a good one!
