Extra post today! Sending love to those mourning the loss of loved ones. Stamping on the dull gloss paper has some challenges. Important to let the ink dry before touching it. I accidentally touched it and messed it up a bit. 😫
Feeling the fragility of life again today. Have a wonderful weekend and may you hold your loved ones a little closer.
Stamps: F255 Our Thoughts Prayers, GG51 Daisy Triangle Vase Lg, AA31 Single Butterfly Mini
Good Evening! We had a hot summer day today with evening thunderstorms. Summer has arrived!
We’ve had good news! My Mom’s cancer is confined to one area so we are thankful! Still a long road ahead of us.
I finally planted some plants today!
When you wait to the very last – you get what’s available but at least they were well discounted!!
Needed a sympathy card so I spent a little time in my studio.
We are hoping to carry some of the cutting dies we have been using; we will let you know when available.
We are almost all packed for our vacation! So glad for rubber stamps since I needed a sympathy card for a friend who lost his 103 year old mother. I imagine it’s not easy to lose a mother at any age. I’m also wondering why I don’t stamp a stash of cards so I have them when I need them! Maybe that will be my goal for next year 😊
oh my goodness! It ALL starts over again 🙂 We got home from Novi, MI last night, well really this morning!, at 2:05 am. Up and at them again so that we can leave on Wednesday for Stampaway in Cincinnati, OH show. Kevin is still in bed since he does all the driving! My brother in law is coming over this morning to help me. Thank Goodness!
Here is Karissa working on some new images. She draws them by hand! Mason her little cutie is helping her!
And here he is not so helpful!
Friday Saturday! Sorry for the delay. I’m not sure what is happening with my uploads but I kept getting an error message. I think I have it working now. Here are two with sympathy cards. One is portrait layout and the other landscape. I colored the flowers with Copic markers. Stamps used: A190, EE40, EE39 and G335
Have a wonderful weekend!
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.
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.
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!
