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!

Good Afternoon…we have had some full and wonderful days with our family!  Did a little shopping today…got another pair of shoes today!  They are so cute.  That is one thing when I buy a pair of shoes…I never take a pair of shoes out.  With other things, like shirts, one goes in and one goes out…not shoes:)  Love shoes!  Bought red shoes today. 🙂

Notice that today’s card has a bead on it?  On the ribbon!

Stamps Used:  J35 Live Every Moment, D299 Trio Butterflies

Well, Good Evening.  It is past bedtime and I remembered I hadn’t blogged yet so I uploaded this lovely card only to see a shadow in it :(.  So I apologized for that!

We made stamps today and I was in charge of supper.  We always have bible study on Wednesday too so pretty soon the day was gone!  I’m not sure how it happened but life seems to be speeding up.

Stamps Used:  E256 KB’s Bookish Owl, C234 ConGRADulations, And both theLarge and Small Graduation Hat.

We are working on some new graduations stamps and I’m excited about them 🙂

Hello, smile

 

 

Here are a few cards using hat pins on them.  I love making the pins and using them on cards…adds a nice little touch.

We’ve had some busy days since returning from CO… not doing much but just getting things re-organized, needed to do laundry, buy groceries, clean house, and, of course, make stamps again!  Just ordinary things that make each day a gift.  I want to cherish each day and love the little things in it.  Was really special to spend time with my parents and my brother while in Colorado.  We made some new memories to cherish.  Hope your ordinary days are special.

Stamps used: A123 You Make Me Smile, C191 KB’s Heart Flower in a Jar, A78 KB’s Butterfly/Sm

Copic Markers used: R32 Peach, YG63 Pea Green, Y17 Golden Yellow, BG10 Cool Shadow

st-patsHappy St. Patrick’s Day!  and Happy Birthday to my nephew Blake!

We had an awesome time in Allentown, PA.  Those ladies there are always good to us!  We finally got home around 6:30 pm after 12.5 hours travel today and 5 hours yesterday.  Not too bad 🙂  We had thought to do nothing tomorrow but issues and orders await us!  It’s good to be home!

We will have a nice relaxing evening and then be relaxed and ready to go in the morning.  Hope you’ve enjoyed your day today and have either eaten or drunk something GREEN!
