Good Morning. There is always a need for sympathy cards. I always like to have a few on hand so I’m ready when the need arises. My stash is growing since all the cards don’t end up as demo cards in the booth!

We will miss you Judy!!

Our hearts are sad today because we lost Judy this past week. Stamp conventions will not be the same here in Wisconsin ! My favorite memory is from a few years ago at the Madison show – She came crawling in on Sunday morning with 4 or 5 of our tape runners from the make n takes. As she was doing cards she kept accidentally putting them in her bag! Our thoughts and prayers go to her family and friends.

Thinking of You, With Sympathy

Extra post today! Sending love to those mourning the loss of loved ones. Stamping on the dull gloss paper has some challenges. Important to let the ink dry before touching it. I accidentally touched it and messed it up a bit. 😫

Good Evening! We are finally catching up on laundry and orders and there is always paperwork 🀨

We had a friend pass away this week…just 50 years old. Such a reminder that life is very brief. Our hearts go out to his wife, his children, and his parents who will feel such a profound loss. He was a hunter so I had to add these little die cut deer from Penny Black, Inc. We do not sell them and honestly I don’t even know if they are still available since I found them in my “stash” unopened never used. πŸ™„ I may be a bit of a collector!

Hello! We had a great time in Strongsville! We have what I call jet lag…long night traveling Saturday night so we had a lazy day yesterday but jumped into work today!

I loved making this sympathy card – I know polka dots are probably not the appropriate thing for a sympathy card- but they are my favorite! This card makes my smile when I look at it. 😊. I LOVE this new cutting die.

Hello! I’ve survived another busy day!😊 I actually cleaned the studio today! There were stamps and dies and scrap pieces of paper everywhere and it just needed to be cleaned and sorted! Still have a ways to go…

What a mess! I did do a little stamping today – and we have some new dies that came but they were wrong so they are re doing them πŸ€ͺπŸ˜¬πŸ™„

Sympathy cards are best simple and today’s card is just that!

Good Evening! We had a hot summer day today with evening thunderstorms. Summer has arrived!

We’ve had good news! My Mom’s cancer is confined to one area so we are thankful! Still a long road ahead of us.

I finally planted some plants today!

When you wait to the very last – you get what’s available but at least they were well discounted!!

Needed a sympathy card so I spent a little time in my studio.

Good Evening! We’ve been silent for the last few days while traveling to Florida and back. We found summer while we were down there. It was 90 degrees when we left Florida. We got back home to colder weather and we are back busy making stamps again.

I needed a sympathy card for a friend; I like simple for sympathy.

Good Evening. I needed a sympathy card and luckily Karissa had made one when she was here this weekend. I love the simplicity of the card! Pattern paper and one stamp! And since the card is being sent out of state- the handmade in Wisconsin stamp for the back.
