I thought I would share with you this card I cased. I actually need some Thank you cards for my customers. I had several take advantage of my personal website and ordered online directly. I also had several order with me. Thank you all for making a purchase with me during SAB, and keeping my business alive and GROWING!!  I cased this card from Nice People Stamp: https://nicepeoplestamp.blogspot.ca/2017/be-inspired-blog-hop.html

Ink: Pool Party, Momento Black (this is my go to black ink you could use what ever black ink you have on hand.)

Hey everyone. So on Saturday and overnight Sunday we ended up with like 10 inches of snow. My joke was the St. Paddy’s day leprechaun was going to be dancing his jig in a foot of snow. Well unless we get somemore in the next two days — Or maybe Susan can send us some….  Anyways bad joke especially for Susan. They got a HUGE dump of snow yesterday and I dont think she was able to dig herself out.

So I know Susan spent some of yesterday crafting. I know I saw a picture of her making soap. Head over to her blog to see what she made using ink/stamps/paper. http://www.susan-stampinsue.blogspot.ca I was looking for a simple card for my home workshop on Sunday. I cased this cute Thank you card from Scrapbook & Cards Today Blog — Kimberly Van Diepen.

Ink: Sweet Sugarplum, Soft Sky, Flirty Flamingo, Island Indigo, Emerald Envy

Well, not sure about where you live, but February came in like a lion, and is going out like a lion too! We are having a winter snow storm here today (tuesday) and its sub zero again. I have to say too, this happend last February too. My adopted brother (long story) anyways, he and his fiance got married on leap year. (is it leap year or leap day?) Anyways, it too snowed the day before they were to get married, and there was no end insight either for the snow!

On another note, on friday March 3 I’m going back to my old job. I have been pretty sick (stress sick) the past six weeks working my new job. I talked it over with my hubby and he said he would rather me be healthy and happy then to be sick and hate my job.

Moving on…..

Yep it’s that time of the week again! So, let’s head over to Susan’s blog: http://www.susan-stampinsue.blogspot.ca  to see what product she used this week. Mine is more of the same from last week. I posted one of the six cards that was featured on a blog that I cased.

Hey hope your having a great week.

Yep it’s that time of the week again!! So I’ve noticed that Susan and I either do not have the same stamp sets from the new Occasions catalog or we are not using the same sets. Unlike during the fall and Holiday catalog! So to see what my bff Susan has created this week, head on over to her blog: http://www.susan-stampinsue.blogspot.ca

I had been wanting to use this set for a while. I think this is the second time I’ve used it. I cased this card (the poster created six) which I also made. I actually made these twice I have some secret sisters that I need to have cards made up for and send out each month.  I cased these from: http://www.stampyourartout.com/stampyourartout/2017/01/more-variations-on-yesterdays-card.html

Items used:

Stamp set: Lift me up (bundle)

Cardstock: Whisper White, Carried Away DSP (SAB catalog)

Ink: Night of Navy

Extras: Snail, Dimensionals, Metallic Doilies, Gold and Silver 1/8″ ribbon

I used just Whisper White cardstock, however one should use the thicker Whisper White when using it for a card base

If you order all the items listed you have more than enough to earn the DSP for FREE.

Thanks for lookin’ and have a Stampin’ day!

Well last week the groundhog saw or didn’t see it’s shadow. Depending on what part of the country you live in. I’m pretty sure that silly rodent didn’t see his shadow (he or maybe it’s a she?)

Yes they are still digging out!

Hey happy Wednesday! Well I have just started my new job this week.  So far I’m enjoying it. Alot the same as where I was working. Now just hoping the hours are going to be fine for my daughter. This morning I had to wake her up. Most mornings she hears me and gets up. Yesterday she got up when my alarm did at 445am — yes I said am. (that was on Monday) Today (tuesday) it was 545am when I got her to wake up. It’s not like she needs to be dressed and fed before she gets to daycare. They understand that some days she will be just getting out of bed when we get there. I can pack her clothes and her breakfast and she can do those over there with her kids.

As we continue with the new Occasions catalog product. Head over to Susan’s blog: http://www.susan-stampinsue.blogspot.ca  to see what she played with this week. I’m using yet a different stamp set, called Lift me Up. I cased my creation from http://chloscraftcloset.blogspot.ca/2016/11/onstage-display-cards-day-3-lift-me-up.html I changed  a couple of things, from her sample.

I have to admit that this came together rather quickly tonight. I’m hoping to get more cards made in the next two days I have off so I don’t get behind in my swaps.

Items used:

Stamp Set: Lift me Up

Ink: Momento Black, Rose Red, Blushing Bride, Wonder Wistera, Crumb Cake

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Crumb Cake

Extras: Linen Thread, Snail.

Thanks for lookin’ and have a Stampin’ day!
