Making a Purple Card

Every now and then, I try to get Ann to work outside her comfort zone. Actually, it’s almost every day in some way, shape, or form. Anytime she works with gingham, she is NOT in her comfort zone. When she first started stamping over 20 years ago, country style stamps were pretty much all she could get her hands on. (That was before she discovered Stampin’ Up!.) All the stamps looked alike – and it was a lot of country. She was so happy when discovered Stampin’ Up!. All their colors coordinated so that she knew her cards would finally come together – just like...

Welcome Stampers!

Welcome Stampers!

We’ve been getting ready for next week around here. We’re going to have to start thinking ahead because 2019 is kicking off to be a VERY good year! Stampin’ Up! has some pretty grrrrreat free things that you can select with a $50 or $100 buy-in and you, my dear stampers, are loving them! And then there’s that bag… Stampers are loving that bag almost as much as Ann and I are. We figured you could even put a full sized computer keyboard in there! Grrreat for students!

Today’s a Special Day!

We’ve been thinking about how we were going to make a card for our friends for some time now. It’s very hard because they’re moving away. And today is the day that many are stopping by their home to see them before they leave. The wife already retired. She finally convinced her husband that it’s time for him to retire too. That’s a hard thing to do when you like your job. We’re going to miss them so it was important to Ann that some extra effort was involved – even if they had to throw the card away when the movers come. (It would be nice to think...

Want a Sneak Peek?

We’re up to my puppy elbows around here making cards for our online October shoppers, planning swaps and videos for our Master Stampers.

We’ve been doing weekly Live Streams on Facebook and YouTube for 11 months now. I’m trying to convince Ann to do a regular video for you.

Would you like that?

Happy Mail!

It was doubly nice for Ann to get some happy mail this week. Why?

It wasn’t just because the Stampin’ Up! gift certificate inside was…

Are You Watching the Winter Olympics?

Are you watching the Winter Olympics?

We don’t have it on all the time, but it’s grrrrrreat to see the different sports and learn more about the athletes. Of course, we want our country to win, but it was pretty fun watching the men’s slalom skier from Austria.

I guess he’s…

What? A Blue and Green Valentine Card?

What?  A Blue and Green Valentine Card?

Who says that a Valentine card has to be red or pink?

As you may already know, my favorite huMAN likes blue. Whatever we make in blue gets an automatic thumbs up from him. So, of course, when Ann…
