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

Coffee, Friendship

Good Morning! So we were planning on leaving in the morning for the 4 southern shows but Kevin looked at the weather…and yep, he’s says pack it all up we are leaving today. oh gracious! Had an appointment to get blood pressure checked so off to town I go… was worried it would be high but was perfect! whew! Then further into to town, the dealer was fixing our truck when something went wrong with the lift and damaged the truck so they wanted to fix it while we were gone. Next back home and load! I hope I don’t forget anything. And did I mention it is -4 today ?!? πŸ™„ yes! negative!

I cut this valentines paper wrong for a card so I needed to find something to do with the paper that was cut wrong…hence a cute coffee card!

So I’m rocking and rolling and getting things done around here. πŸ™‚ so much organizing that I forget to blog! Just cleaning up old make n takes and re-organizing things. Heat went out in the studio so we had to get a new heater- lucky we’ve been having beautiful weather in WI!!
