Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, Graduation, Wiper Cards

Hello! We made it through the surgery, the graduation, the pneumonia and have sent most of the company packing!

I made my nephew a card with the wiper card base, put some $ and a saying inside it. It did not fit in an envelope 🙄😬 but he liked the card! I know – because there was $ in it. I made the money into a hat & scroll but it’s hard to see in the picture.

Graduation

Good Morning. so the painting job is done…the wood floor goes in today. Yippee. I ended up doing a lot of the painting; I sent my nephew to get food at lunch time and he comes back and says to Kevin and my other nephew “there is something wrong with my truck ” and the boys put their paint brushes down and were out the door! 🤨

So the truck got fixed and we still got the painting done. It was a great day!

Today’s card is a quick and easy graduation card.

Graduation



We are in Mount Clemens, MI getting ready for the Heirloom Rubber Stamp Show. For those of you who heard it’s in a bad area …it really is not.  It is not high class like Novi, MI but it’s not the slums. They have a bit of disarray but it’s not too bad. We spent the night here and we were not scared 😜

I really need to get my graduation cards sent but I guess I’m just extending their celebration 😊

Graduation

   
   
Today’s card is our new graduation make n take. It is very similar to a card we have already posted.

Our new printer arrived and does not work. So after investing thousands of dollars in the new POS system and hundreds of hours uploading inventory – nothing works!  So the  next time you see me my hair may be all tore out😁. We leave today for Texas and we are not really sure how we are going to check out down there but we do have the old system back up and working. Sigh.

Whew!  We made it to West Springfield, MA today.  Nice to be here.  We were busy making stamps today.  Had to bring a few boxes to finish up since we didn’t get done before we left. 😦

Love our new graduation stamps!  Stamps Used:  F242 Trio Graduates, D313 Celebrate your day!, D314 A day worth Celebrating.

On a side note…I should have wore my glasses while coloring my graduates but tried to do without.  Finally had to go and get them.  Pretty blurry without.  Thankful for spectacles !

Crunch Time!

Good Morning.  It is really crunch time for us….we have much to do and no time left.  Well, we have today but it will not be any where near enough time to get ready for the West Springfield, MA show but we are probably close enough.  We worked until midnight last night and up early this morning finishing up details and loading the truck and trailer.  We discovered a water leak in the back of the camper shell so spent time fixing that. ugh.  always something .

Graduation was this weekend here in WI and so I made this money holder for a friend of ours.  If you took my class a couple of years ago this was one of the projects.  I go back to it often when I’m giving a gift of $.
