So glad we’re friends – March 30, 2020

flowers, Friendship

Good Morning and happy Monday! On this card, the fold is at the top and it opens upward. The words and flowers are stamped on Dull Glossy Paper and set aside overnight. Sometimes an idea starts and then gets finished later but it allows the ink to dry which is needed with the dull glossy paper!

Stamps: C128 So Glad We’re Friends, HH32 Pansy Large, EE65 Pansy Med.

Copic Markers: YR68 Orange, BG01 Aqua Blue, G43 Pistachio, YG67 Moss

Thursday Evening

Just a Note


  
  
We’ve accomplished a lot today !  We have all the convention “pulled” that means all the stamps we are going to make have had their ticket pulled. The ticket tells us all the information we need to make the stamp.  We have vulcanized 1/2 of them. We still have a long way to go but I see lots of progress.

Kevin and Bruce (a friend of ours) have continued to build in the pantry/mudroom. I have to say it is coming out better than I could have imagined!! I have been admiring those barn doors on Pintrest and I’m getting one in the pantry/mudroom. so excited. I will post pictures when done 🙂

I made today’s card for a friend of mine that needs a little love sent her way!  Stamps Used: D300 Sending Love; EE56 KB’s Tall Daisy Lg; F196 Wishing Love.

The Long Weekend is about here!

KB here, blogging for Beth since they are driving back to Wisconsin this afternoon. Earlier, the question of how I keep my mat so clean came up and it is simply baby wipes (the mat was fairly new too which helps). I think I bought this little pack for $1 at Target a couple months ago. Photo Feb 12, 4 00 18 PMSpeaking of cleaning, I was getting frustrated with my unmounted stamps and have been trying to figure out a good way to organize them. I have a binder, a bucket, and a rolodex. I’m still not sure which works best but today at Target, in the dollar section near the entrance, I found some containers which might work nice.

These are the containers I found. Photo Feb 12, 2 32 05 PM

This is what my bucket looked like before.

Photo Feb 12, 2 45 05 PM Photo Feb 12, 2 38 11 PMAs you can imagine, it is very difficult to find the one I want. Also, they get stuck together, bent, damaged, etc. It would be easier to leave them scattered all across the desk but that looks messy and the cat enjoys chewing on them.

This is kind of how it looks now.

The larger stamps don’t fit in any of the containers but I think they will work better in the binder anyway. If anyone has a good suggestion or something that works for them, we are all ears (or eyes since we will probably be reading your responses)! Happy Thursday!
