Good Morning. so the painting job is done…the wood floor goes in today. Yippee. I ended up doing a lot of the painting; I sent my nephew to get food at lunch time and he comes back and says to Kevin and my other nephew “there is something wrong with my truck ” and the boys put their paint brushes down and were out the door! 🤨

So the truck got fixed and we still got the painting done. It was a great day!

Today’s card is a quick and easy graduation card.

good morning! The boys around here are making me so happy!! I’m getting my new floor put down in our bedroom! Austin (my nephew) has decided that any job is better than indexing stamps! Today they are painting and tomorrow the wood floor will go down. Excited!

I will be indexing stamps!

I’m loving these cards! So easy and fun. We will have our usual make n take’s in Shakopee MN but we are also adding a make n take station with an instructor doing these cards. It will be $3 a card.

A salute to all the Dads out there. I’m thankful for a great Dad and a husband that is a great Dad!

Hello! It’s been a couple of crazy days around here. We’ve had lots of orders and one huge order that we have been working on. Got them all out today but have some odd little orders to get out now.

So this was a fun card to do! I did notice that I could see my copic coloring on the back of the owl and kite (see third picture) so on the second card I made – I cut out extra pieces to put behind the colored one. It also added weight which was good.

I’ve been designing word stamps to go behind these little flaps since it’s hard to find stamps that fit 🤪. Hoping to have them by the MN & TX shows.

good morning! We got home at 2:30 am. long night but Kevin is a night owl so night driving is better!

I ran out of my girlie birthday cards on Saturday during the show in Collinsville so I quickly designed another and today’s card is the sample. We liked doing this make n take format and might add it to our other format. It was received well! Fun Card.

Good Morning ☀️

We are frantically getting orders out and trying to make stamps for Collinsville. Our booth placement stinks in Collinsville so likely don’t need to worry about making stamps anyway 🤪

So we are changing our make n take format for Collinsville. We will not have our usual set up but we will be doing two different make n takes. Four spots. More like Paper Cut format. We are doing two different birthday cards. This masculine card and a girlie card that I will post tomorrow!
