Good Morning. I have to let you guys know that l was asked to beta test a new iso for my blog posts. I should never do that because I'm not technically suave enough. The 😊 that you see are emojis that didn't post correctly not me "swearing ". Then it switched photos when it posts to face book. groan! and of course I have no idea how to get out of the beta. so I apologize.

another fun gatefold card! all week you'll see them.

Good Morning 😃 I'm up early this morning and ready to get the day going! I'm on supper duty tonight and I'm making teriyaki chicken/steak. Looking forward to it. My sister made it a few weeks back and I've been dreaming about it since 😍

My gatefold card obsession continues!

Good Morning! ☀️ I have to confess that I love gatefold cards. I really like using the die Sarah and I designed for the tops. The cards open so seamless compared to cutting with two dies. I think it's because the new die is perfectly centered.

My biggest dilemma is I like patterned paper for the sides. I went to a local scrapbook store and bought $50 worth of patterned paper and wasn't really happy with any of it 😡

The other day I decided that as a stamper, ( right; we are stampers!!) I should just stamp my sides and I am so much happier with them. Just the right amount of pattern.

I learned something else while doing this card…glue can smear your ink. yep, don't look too close or you can see where my glue got away from me and smeared the ink 🙄

well, I'm off to make stamps 😜
