Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, flowers, Friendship, Hello

Hello! We have been having trouble with our indexing ink so I gave up making stamps today and decided to make cards instead.

Karissa bought a HUGE stack of paper at JoAnne’s this weekend and I scored some of this background paper. I wish I would have snagged more!

Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, flowers, Friendship

So we have had a return to winter here in Wisconsin πŸ™„πŸ˜³ not really loving it. So Kevin spent the morning plowing while I cleaned the house.

and not just a little winter but a lot of winter!!

We have some new dies to match some of our new flowers! I’m really loving dies – I’m not sure what took me so long to love them. Since Brother mats have been really wonky – I haven’t been using it much and so I’ve been die cutting instead.

Looking forward to a weekend of NO work! πŸ€ͺ

Hello! We are home from our trip and the trailer is unloaded but we still have piles of laundry to get through!

We got all the special orders done today and they will be mailed in the morning.

I’ve included a picture of some special ladies from Allentown PA show! These ladies stamp every week on Wednesday and we’ve known them for years 😊

The weekend is here and we are home…what to do with a Saturday when not working?? Haven’t decided yet but looking forward to it.

Another amazing card from my friend Heidi! We have ordered dies for the new flower stamps hoping to have them within the next few weeks.

We have avoided all the snow and are in Carthage, MO. It is suppose to get cold tonight but no snow is forecasted.

Birthday, Box Cards, flowers

Good Evening! Lots going on around our place! We needed to get a new POS system which is a point of sale cash/computer program. Groan! Lots of data entry which I am not a fan of.

I finally realized my blog had gotten disconnected from facebook so hopefully that is fixed.

I cracked a tooth! Most annoying 😩 so it’s either a $2500 root canal and cap or pull it. I’m leaning towards pulling it. This is the 5th tooth I’ve cracked! I need to stop clenching my jaw. So was at the dentist on Monday, today, and need to make an appointment for whatever it is I choose. I don’t have time for this 😜πŸ€ͺ😝

But I LOVE making box cards so fun and easy. My class this year includes a box card. Information for my class is on our 2019 schedule. Here is the link to our schedule: 2019 Schedule
