Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. Hope you are having a great start to your week. It was wonderful getting into my new stamping space this weekend and actually putting ink to rubber. I checked out the challenge at stamping411 this week and it's a fabulous sketch challenge. I couldn't wait to play along! You really need to go along to the site and check out the wonderful design team and submission cards. I know you will find lots of inspiration. Me... as soon as I saw this sketch I knew exactly what set to use. Generally I only use French Foliage... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. Anne Marie has a great challenge for us this week, and I was not at all surprised to see the polka dots make an appearance:-) So, a Clean and Simple card challenge with a twist of polka dots - right up my alley. I must admit, I was very pleased that this was a CAS challenge this week. I haven't made a card in a month, and was really worried about putting ink to rubber again.

I promised myself that I wouldn't start on unpacking those until I had unpacked the majority of the boxes for the pantry, kitchen and master walk-in-closet. Well.... I sort of kept to that:-) Lou put up my cabinet for me this evening and I unpacked many of my boxes and now have access to DSP, ribbon, buttons, card stock, stamps and even my big shot. I also found the transfer mechanism for getting photographs off my phone and onto my iMac. Which is all... Read more →

Back online!

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday Just wanted to pop in and tell you that we are finally back in the land of the connected! We have TV access, telephone and cable! It has felt really strange not having access since Thursday morning. These last few days have been an absolute blur. We drove the 2 hours up and the 2 hours back on Tuesday to take the cats to kennels. On Wednesday for the walk-through and closing. On Thursday for our move and on Saturday to clean up the old house, pick up stuff that we hadn't finished packing, staging, etc.... Read more →
