No time to stamp yesterday, but I had a wonderful Girl Friend Day. Four of us went to Winnipeg to Manitoba Theatre Center, The BLONDE, the BRUNETTE and the VENGEFUL REDHEAD was playing. Very good show.. The four of us shopped had lunch, shopped some more the play, little more shopping then off to supper and home. Always a fun time... Lots of laughs, food and fun. Just what every woman needs in her life once in a while..

Today I hope to get a little time to play have lots of projects I would like to do.. Tuesday I got four calenders put together with the bind it machine I do four every year they are not in our catalogue this year so made my own. I do have four 81/2 by 11 if anyone wants to buy them them. I purchased them when they went on the retirement list. Just contact me if your interested.
Have a great day.

Everyone loves cupcakes! This uses the (Simple Birthday Thanks) #111546. It is one big stamp, I cut the middle out so that it was easier to use. I used the crimper on the holder and crystal effects on the cherry, cherry bits and chocolate chip bits.. These were fun to make. Have a great day it is almost the end of the month where has it gone..

Guess what my room is still almost organized, my sister should visit now. Last time she was here you couldn't find any counter that wasn't covered with something...

Here are a couple of pictures of my space... It is really full but I do know where things are as long as no one else moves them. The cupboard with the Big Shot and Bind it machine is on wheels when you pull it out the peg board doors open and there is more room behind . My husband made the stamp pad holders, sizzex holders and wheel holders for me. He does sell them if anyone is interested in getting them.

No picture today just a little news. For those that haven't heard starting with the next catalogue in July there will be one per year. YAY so thankful for that. Also anyone who is interested there will be a extended crease pad for the Big Shot coming soon.. that's for the long dies also good news.

Yesterday we went to Winnipeg to do a little shopping Ray bought a Wii about a month ago but couldn't get the wii fit program well he got it yesterday. When he profiled me I really puffed right up so guess that means I had better get to exercising more. Maybe I will even get a little more coordinated, think it will help me learn to spell I doubt that. I do make mistakes so please forgive me in that area.

Have a great weekend all. Happy Stampin

I got wonderful set in one of my last orders (Thoughts and Prayers) #113252 This card uses the Eyelet Punch and also the Simple Flower embosslit die. I really like this set we made this red card at my Mystery Hostess last night. as one of our make and take projects.. The Red flowers were done with the real red marker. Dazzling Diamonds were added to give it a little sparkel, not sure if you can see that... I would like to thank those ladies that came. Mildred won the hostess set and Gail won the free product. I am having another mystery hostess on March 11 if you would like to come or have any questions give me a call.

I was just talking on the phone and looked out the window and this is what I saw. The deer come all the time and we live right in town, last year they ate our ceder bushes really made a mess of them... But no matter the damage there is nothing better than seeing wild life in your back yard...This is a mother and her almost grown baby... I am having a mystery hostess night so better get some paper cut. Just wanted to share the beauty of nature with you..

Had a little time to play wanted to use the Bind IT machine. Got the pattern for this small scrap booklet from Lisa S. Used some Rub-ons also the SU Flower Burst die and the Big Shot. You can't see the design here but that embosslit is fantastic...This booklet folds out so it holds several pictures...

Just guess what this is???Well I will tell you a little story..I was away the other day and one of my downline girls came over. I told her my Big Shot machine was on the table and also a book of samples that she could look at. Well she and her sister came over I had stuff on the table as had a party the night before. They sucessfully used the texture plate, then my husband being so helpful, goes to my room and brings down a bigz die and between them try and set the machine up. Well this is what happens to your silicone rubber when you put it through with a die. It really cuts............ To top it off.. of all the dies I have this one is not sold by SU............... No wonder my hubby said I could order something for my self!!!!!! Best part is both girls are going to buy the Big guess he impressed them with his knowledge sure shows that the machine cut through more than just paper.....Good thing we can laugh about it.
Hope you all had a nice Valentines Day and got something from someone...Maybe it was a phone call or hand made card from a little person or a lovely bouquet of flowers what ever it was it means you are special and loved.... Ray took me out for lunch and told me to order something for my self and he would pay. Maybe I should go WILD and get everything I want from Stampin"UP!! boy would he be surprized to get that bill....

I am having a Mystery Hostess tomorrow night Monday the 16th if you are interested in coming give me a call so I have enough make and takes ready. Every $25.00 gets you in the draw and remember it is also Sale a bration time so $60.00 get you a free item from the booklet.. You don't have to attend just give me your orders and payment and your in....

Have a GREAT Day...

The ice storm is finally over. Still have to be very careful when walking..I did manage to get to the hospital to do my volunteer hours..
I finally got to try my bind it machine .. Not real fancy but a start. The front one uses 4/4 coasters and a sticky note pad inside, some retired paper and the (One of a Kind) stamp set... The other one uses the Big Shot (Top Note) and Stampin'UP! (Sweetest Stem) embosslit die also (Spotlight on Christmas) stamp set. This one has lined paper inside.

Monday, February 9, 2009

Was busy making baby Thank You cards today. The lamb card is very similar to a swap I recieved used the Top Note die and several punches.. The other card is a retired set called (Bundle of Joy) also used several punches on this card.
Today it is raining, the streets were pure ice this morning and this is suppose to continue all night and maybe turn into snow which means more ice... A good reason to just stay indoors, I will try and mail these cards if its safe to travel and if the post office is open there was no mail today because of the weather.
