Just a Note

Good Evening! We continue to make stamps and work on the house.  Same old stuff!

We are hoping to take the weekend off of stamp making and work on the projects around the house. ¬†We purchased a toilet and sink to replace the old ones. I want to get all the crown molding up in the dining room & powder bath. I would like to spray paint an old fan silver. It is currently gold. if it looks good then it won’t need to be replaced. And I would like to get the mudroom painted! It’s a pretty long list but I think we can do it ūüôā

The fireworks are booming tonight!  Have a great 4th of July.

I’m liking the long daisy. It is a new stamp. I like its versatility. ¬†Stamps Used in today’s card: ¬†C283 need a hug?; Cc73 Double Grass (I’m loving this new stamp too!); EE56 KB’s Long Daisy, lg; C95 Flowers to cheer

Thankful for our freedom!

All Starts Over Again!

Here is a special post for those who were at the Rockford show today and didn’t have a camera to capture some of the card samples in the booth. Thank you to all who came! If you missed today there is still tomorrow. The show is open from 10am to 3pm at the Clock Tower.

Happy Sunny Friday!

With Sympathy

Here in Mpls the morning started off sunny and at about 42 degrees. I’ve ditched the coat and have been enjoying watching the snow melt. Barely any left now. Well then in the afternoon it started lightly snowing, no good but luckily none of it stuck. Here are 2 very similar cards created with the same stamps and dictionary paper. Still trying to decide whether I like the blue strip of paper more or not. Hoping this weekend brings some warmer, sunny weather.

with sympathy

Thinking of my parents as they attended a funeral today of someone who was a wonderful part of our lives during my childhood. Amazed again of how quickly life passes and so thankful for those who have been a graceful, steady, kind example. Stamps used: H23 Debbie’s Coneflowers. E153 Debbie’s Coneflower Sm and/or E98 With Sympathy/Vertical would work as well.



update from BETH: Wow, things have been just a little hectic around here.  We finally made it home but only had six days and now we are off again to West Springfield, MA.  This card was made for a friend of ours who passed away on Friday at the age of 93!  She was a sweet friend and we are going to miss her!  She had her funeral all planned out and choose Kevin as a pallbearer.   Glad we were home to help carry out some of her last wishes!
