Thursday Jan 20, 2022- You’re the Best

Good Morning! We have a very cold morning here in Wisconsin. Many of you may know that we left the road, not because of Covid, but because my knees where bad. So on Dec 14, 2021 I had bilateral knee replacement! Yep I did both at the same time. It’s been a long recovery road but I’m getting there. That is one tough surgery! I had a friend who helped me a bit because I was having trouble sleeping and so I needed a card for her. Today’s card is a couple variations that I came up with.

It’s really takes a huge group of people to get someone through knee surgery. My kids were here for days helping us. We could not have done it without them. In the middle of recovery Kevin got Covid so that added a bit of a challenge. So glad those days are behind us and now just lots of physical therapy and hopefully some stamping!

Happy Thursday! I love my copic markers and using them mostly on dull glossy paper but you have to use dark markers unlike white card stock that usually likes lighter markers better. I have charts with the colors to help me match to paper.

Sorry the picture is not very good but these charts really help me with my color selection

Good Afternoon! How on earth is it December already??!! My rescheduled knee surgery is coming up. We are getting our kitchen counters replaced the day after my surgery so we are busy getting all that ready. I still managed to find a little time to stamp- not much mind you but a little! Enjoy!

Grilling in a snow storm!!

Good Evening! Well Thanksgiving is over. It’s back to work. We had a fabulous time with good weather for travel.

I’m a little behind on blogging but I had to make a few cards. You will notice something about all the cards this week. They will all have something in common. Hope you enjoy.

I also included a picture of Kevin grilling in the snow storm we had today. It was one of those perfect snowstorms. It was beautiful.

It’s Friday! I do love weekends now! Now that we work during the week and have weekends off they are amazing. Days off just help recharge us.

Same simple layout but I did change the words! I used up all my bouquets that I had colored so I will have to do some more. Have a good weekend.

Today’s card always puts a smile on my face! It is so cheerful. Could be birthday card or a new job – really just to celebrate a fabulous friend.

I did use a stencil for the background. I did get the leaf from a really old stamp that was one of our first stamps. That probably is what makes me smile too! Have a great Wednesday.

Happy November! I thought I had better get back in the swing of things! We’ve been pretty occupied around our house. I don’t know where the time goes. My friend Heidi made some cards a while back and so I thought I would post them. She does amazing work. I hope you enjoy I got to stamp most of the day yesterday and it was so much fun. Sometimes you forget how relaxing it can be.

September is here! Amazing. The months and years seem to fly by. September brings knee replacement surgery to me. Little nervous but my knees were what took us off the road but of course then along came covid and changed everybody’s world.

Today’s card was made for a young friend who is moving to Michigan that I am going to miss! You might notice that I cut the flower out several times and stacked them instead of using 3-D-Dots. Love that trick.

Enjoy your first day of September! Fall is coming.
