Hello!  Today brings our Easter Make n Take that had been added to the line up. I believe I was able to add about 5 new make n take cards.  Exciting!

Our equipment is still not working all together but they are over nighting a new receipt printer that should work….talk about last minute….makes me really nervous.

Kathy’s Card

Kathy's Easter

Good Evening!  Today’s card comes from Kathy in SC!  A sweet Easter card.  Stamps Used:  HH27 Whumsy Daisy Lg, EE44 KB’s Bunny w/ radish

We had a very busy weekend!  We painted the entire Dining Room and then began replacing the floor with hardwood floors.  Choosing colors for the walls is always fingernail biting work!  I actually took the curtains to Home Depot and had them match a color on the curtains.  I love Behr Paint and Primer.  I’m also a big Oops Paint buyer.  So all in all I only have $40 in paint so far. I had two gallons of oops red paint…but one was too pink and the other was two orange.  So we mixed them and it was perfect.  Love when that happens. As soon as we finish…I’ll show you pictures.

Think Spring!

oh so cute think spring card!  And we are thinking spring….willing the snow away 🙂

Triple Circle cards from The Paper Cut!  I do have the die but prefer to use Paper Cut paper in solid colors…just easier…instant gratification 🙂

We are finishing up a big wholesale order today and then doing a little re-modeling!  Got my painting clothes on today but Kevin said the walls in the Dining Room are not quite ready so we are moving to the Master Bedroom Closet.  The floors need re-doing, walls need re-painting, and moving some things around are far as organization.  So Excited!  Love Re-Modeling 🙂

Have a great weekend!


Oh My!

April 2, 2015



Oh My!  We have had a beautiful day today here in Wisconsin!  Beautiful Sunshine and around 60 degrees!  Not too hot and not too cold…about perfect.

So I played a little hooky!  Well not completely…we had a vulcanizer (our rubber cooker!) burst a hose and so yesterday we took it to town to be fixed.  They put the wrong end on it so I had to go back to town to get it fixed again 🙂  Now, those of you who live in big cities…probably don’t feel my pain…but going to town takes a half a day around here because of the distance. So if I’m going to lose a couple of hours of work might as well make it 4-6 hours …right?!  I stole my niece and we went shopping.  Nothing for me but a new dress for her and  a bunch of memories 🙂

Today’s card is inspiration from Marge at the Allentown show.  She suggested the bows and I loved the idea so had to do it.  Thanks  Marge!  I really want to change the twine to a blue twine too 🙂

Stamps Used:  DD80 Easter Fun Cube sm, DD63 Dots & Lines, FF43 KB’s Bunny Head, D311 Happy Easter & Beautiful Spring, CC72 KB’s Bunny Head mini, A244 KB’s Bow Sm

Here’s a couple of pictures from Keith and Joyce from our Make n Take Table in Allentown… Patti…PattyJohn and Natalie….


I love the pictures!  I think I need to start taking more pictures!

Good Evening!  We are getting all cleaned up in the trailer and getting ready to move on in the morning to Clearwater, FL.  Life seems to move so fast!  It seems like we just got here.

easter blessingsKarissa’s little bunny with the carrots and radish has been selling like crazy!  It is really cute.  It was the top seller in Allentown so I thought I’d give more card ideas for it.  I really love the new skinny chevron border that can be stamped with the larger chevron border, no cleaning in between the stamping 🙂

Stamps Used:  JJ17 Skinny Chevron Border, HH31 Chevron Border, EE44 KB’s Bunny w/ radish, A190 Single Heart, C129 Easter Blessing to you and yours, DD63 Dots & Line Circle, DD36 Easter Fun Cube.

Punches Used:  1.25″ Circle, 1.5″ Scallop Circle, 1.75″ Circle, Purple Marvy Uchida 3.0″ Scallop Sq, 2.5″ Sq Pink Marvy Uchida Punch, Cut the green square 2.5″x2.5″, Pink Scallop border is actually from the Sizzix Triple Circle Die Set!  It will be back in stock in a couple of days for those waiting for it.

The Easter Fun Cube is the biggest of all the fun cubes.  All the rest fit in 1″ circles where as the Easter Fun Cube needs a 1.25″ Circle.



easter blessing insideKB’s EE44 Bunny is a mirror reverse stamp – for those who don’t know what that is…the carrots/radish are on one side on the bunny and an exact mirror on the other side of the stamp that puts the carrots/radish on the other side.

EE44well I’d better get to work.  More orders to get out 🙂
