To Ribbon or not to Ribbon?!

alcohol ink, Dull Glossy Paper, Snowman, Winter

That’s is always such a big question! Better not to ribbon if you are mailing the card… but I couldn’t decide if I should put the ribbon on or leave it off. What do you think?

I do so love ribbons!

I sure hope this winter finds me Stamping more!!

One of those days…

Christmas Cards, Dull Glossy Paper, Snowman, Winter

Do you ever have one of those days where you have a long list of things to accomplish and you get none of it done??! That was my day today! Grrrr…I did, however, have fun with this card….

The beginning!

This card is so cheerful! I was working on another card at the same time when a red heart fell unto this card by accident and I thought it added so much to the card! Love when that happens. Made my frustrated day a little better. Ahhh it’s the little things in life.

The ending!
Brings out the red in the ear muffs!

YES! We did get snow!

Forecast: SNOW!

Dull Glossy Paper, Holiday, pattern paper, Snowman, Winter

Our forecast is for snow today! We saw a few flakes the other day but nothing that stuck. Today we are expecting a few inches. I love snowman cards so I got right to work on some.

Yep! Snow Happens!

Some of my most useful stamps are the small Dual dots- both the open and closed. These stamps only come in wood mount because they would be impossible to keep track of in Cling mount. I have trouble keeping track of them in wood mount! They are always some where on my desk. I need to get better at putting them away when I am done with them.

I love all the new colors of pumpkins! There is blue, yellow, multi colored ones and of course orange. In the world of electronics it is so fun to get a handmade card. It’s so relaxing to make cards and fun to send. I hope we can all think of someone to send a card to this week!

Perfect Random Template

Many of you know how much I love my perfectly random template. It makes everything so perfectly random! This is how I stamp randomly.

Hello!

Dull Glossy Paper, Fall, Friendship, pattern paper

We’ve been pretty quiet on the blog lately. Just a lot going on. I was diagnosed with a nerve sheath tumor on my wrist which are really rare and we’ve been gardening! I did have the tumor removed and it was benign which we knew going in to surgery but was glad to get it confirmed. I have two numb fingers as a result of surgery but I’m hopeful that the feeling will come back. It doesn’t stop the stamping! I love fall colors. I hope this finds you all healthy and happy!

Not the best pictures ! Not good lighting! 🤪

I’ve been busy getting orders out today but needed to send a friend a thank you card. She sent us some really good banana bread! It needed to be quick and easy. And it needed to be flat so I could mail without issues.

I have had this cuddlebug folder forever and have never really been happy with how I made a card with it. But really love it in this layout!
