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!

With 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.

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
