Halloween Hi

October 30, 2014


Good Morning!  We did make it to Flagstaff, AZ last night.  We may be getting a little too old for this long travel.  Boy were we tired!  How is sitting in a truck doing nothing all day so tiring?? We’ve been having trouble with the time change (which has never happened before!)

We have only a few hours to go to get into Phoenix this morning so we are having a nice relaxing morning.  Nice to sleep in but of course we were awake at 4:30 am Flagstaff time since that is 6:30 our time.  So while it seems like sleeping in we are really up fairly early!  We are heading to some friends of ours that we knew when we lived here so will be fun to catch up with old friends.  Kevin and I actually met and married in Phoenix!

Another halloween card since we are fast approaching halloween. Stamps Used:  F225 Halloween Hi, C201 KB’s spider, DD65 Halloween Fun Cube.

I was not able to get the new stamps on the internet since I kept losing internet connection along the way so I finally gave up.  Maybe this morning…the internet seems fairly good at this hotel.

Halloween Hauntings

hall haunt

Good Morning!  Kevin has us up at the crack of dawn…4:30 am  I think that might even be hours before the crack of dawn!  Since he couldn’t sleep he decided the truck should be moving :)  We made it to Clinton, OK last night and hope to make Flagstaff, AZ today.

Halloween is coming so for the next few days that is what our cards will reflect!  Stamps Used:  G297 Halloween Hauntings, DD65 Halloween Fun Cube, DD44 KB’s Ghosts, E189 KB’s Mummy.

It hump day!  We are half way to the weekend!

We had a good day travel yesterday.  The gas prices are nice!  The lowest they have been in four years.  If it wasn’t for the 30 mph wind that we were headed straight into we might have noticed a savings :)  We made it to Des Moines, IA last night at 8 pm and woke at 6 am  and having a nice lazy morning before heading out.

This world die cut is from…what else but the brother scanncut!   Stamps Used:  F235 Triple Banner Flag, E271 Brighten World.

Enjoy your Tuesday!

better latte 2

a day late and a  dollar short…I think that’s the way we roll!  We had hoped to leave on Sunday for the AZ & CA shows so that we could have a day or two with our friends in AZ.  Not happening!  We now just hope to get enough stamps made so we can leave on Tuesday am..VERY early :) and they don’t make themselves so I’d better get rolling!

Always Behind!

Good Morning!  I hope you guys don’t get tired of hearing about how much I love the Brother Scanncut because here is another example of why I LOVE it!

I stamped the ghost and then had my brother cut it out.  Next I placed a white layer swatch that was 4.0″x5.25″ on the mat so that the ghost image was right in the center.  I then put the outline distance for the cutting blade to .12 (it was at .04 for the cutting of the ghost) and got this shadow for the ghost to be placed over.  How cool is that…you certainly couldn’t do this with a die!

Stamps Used:  EE50 KB’s Ghost, DD60 Circles & Dots, DD65 Halloween Fun cube, F176 Boo!

So we had a little trouble with our lovely dog this morning…well it really began in the middle of the night.  Our  dog who is actually going to turn 20 soon or already is…anyway she’s very, very OLD!  She was very restless last night so Kevin put her in the garage but he forgot that he didn’t put the paint away and so we now have a mess!


yep!  She found the paint!  nice blue paw prints all over the garage :)


Kim’s Card!

October 21, 2014


Good Evening!  Boy was I glad to get a text today with this card attached!  Sometimes finding the time to actually stamp cards for the blog is tough!  I often get behind with that.

A wonderful customer named Kim sent this card to me! Love the simplicity of Kim’s card.  Sympathy cards, I believe, should definitely be kept simple.  Love the colors too!

Now to get a card ready for tomorrow….

so grateful!

Good Afternoon!  I hope this finds you healthy and happy!

We had a great weekend.  And yes, I did get to paint!  My cabinets are all painted and the lower half are installed in the mudroom with the upper cabinets waiting to go in this afternoon.  It’s looking good!  I should have some pictures tomorrow.

The card today has some brand new stamps on it.  Hot off the press this afternoon.  Needed a thank you card and these triple circles make it so easy and quick.

Stamps Used:  D211 Happy day, *GG35 KB’s Primrose, Lg, DD46 So grateful Fun Cube, *AA31 KB’s butterfly mini, *BB60 KB’s Butterfly Sm, DD50 Circles and Dots. *brand new

Need to keep rolling…choir concert for my niece, cabinets to get in, a trip to the postoffice…and on it goes! :)

Adore Him

family 1

family 2Another day in the shop!  We just have too much to do to take the day off!  We are going to try and finish up by noon.  We’ll see how that goes.  I’m not complaining!  It is much better to have too much work than not enough.  So we will just be thankful for today :)

KB’s Manger stamp has been one of my favorites and it continues to be.  Such a simple card with lots of meaning.   I like that the embossing folder says family and then the words on the inside of the card refer to family.  Stamps Used:  C181 KB’s Manger Sm, C182 Seasons Greetings, D274 Adore him, E205 KB’s Manger Lg, F199 Family @ Christmas.

Have an awesome weekend!  I will paint this weekend so any day painting is awesome!

Oh and by the way my Colorado friends…your stamp has been sent to the engravers and we should have it next week!  Along with AZ and CA for the upcoming shows.
