January 24, 2022 -Hoo will Be?

Dull Glossy Paper, Owls, Valentine's Day

Good Evening! Here is another Valentine card. I got a good report from my surgeon today which was reassuring because one knee is further behind than the other and I was worried. So all is well!

Friday, January 21, 2022 – Hoo will Be?

Dull Glossy Paper, Owls, Valentine's Day

Good Morning! Valentines Day is coming up soon so we thought to do a Valentines card. Someone asked a bit ago if we had any projects going. And we always do! The day after my surgery we had our counters in the kitchen replaced and then a new back splash. I planned it good. I didn’t do any work- the kids and Kevin did it all.

Old counters and backsplash
The kids tiling!
Finished!

Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Friendship, Just a Note

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!

Dull Glossy Paper, Thinking of You

Good Afternoon! On this card, the background is a pattern paper from a pack I bought a long time ago and don’t remember where it came from. Anyone else have stacks on stacks of paper they have collected over the years? Love digging through them and finding beautiful papers but it also means, I might not be able to get more! The fancy rectangle is stamped on dull gloss and cut out with scissors. Links to stamps are below!

Beeing you! – Jan. 17, 2022

Dull Glossy Paper, Frogs & Bugs, Thank You Cards

Happy Monday and I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! These two bee cards were so fun to make. I dabbed the honeycomb stamp with a golden ink pad and a yellow ink pad to get the variation. Then I stamped it two more times without re-inking. On the oval, I rubbed the edge of the paper along the ink pad to add color. The bees are colored with a marker.

Good morning and happy Saturday! Anyone thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day?

On this card I stamped the key in pink on dull gloss paper for the background. The scalloped heart is from a Marvy punch but another option would be this heart layering kit > https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/mini-heart-layering-set-mn-hrt-lyr-set
