Hi Stampers. Happy Tuesday friends . I didn't have anything for you today since the weekend spilled over to Monday and Hubby didn't end up going to work.

I did find these foxy gift tags I made awhile ago and didn't get a chance to share them . Aren't they cute . Not sure if you know this about me but my maiden name is Fox ....Yup so this Foxy Builder punch #141470 is perfect for my family and I can make a bunch of goodies for my Mom.

Hi Stampers, Today we will be making the Thank you notes I sent out to those who let me know who made a donation to the Operation Injured Soldiers organization in my hubby's name when he did the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge . I had started out making these cards for my Glitter Queens for their personal goals for June.... Once I finished making those I thought I would make the same design for our Thank you notes . Pretty simple design and since I needed to make a lot more I thought it was perfect . I also stamped the envelope with the motorcycle which I think is so stinking awesome too . I needed (1) card for guy who made a donation and here is his card . I didn't think he wanted a hot pink thank you card LOL! Whisper White Thick card stock # cut at... Continue reading

Hi Stampers, Over the weekend I seen this video come across my face book feed and it was making a moving fish . Of course I had to make one and OH My Goodness ~ look how cute it is . I used card stock for my little fishy but in the video I think they used construction paper which does make the fish move a little easier . I think if I broke done the card stock fibers with my bone folder before putting mine together would help mine move more freely . It's still super cute . Here is a photo of the side view . I used the following card stock colors for my fishy . Flirty Flamingo Peekaboo Peach Sweet Sugarplum Here are the ( 2 ) I made with By The Shore Designer paper # 141640 I also made a smaller one .

We got hubby's Harley in the shop and was waiting on the insurance adjuster to come and see all the work that needs to be done on his Harley . After the Hoka Hey it is usually intense and this...

Hi Stampers, Happy Friday friends ! I thought I would show you the 1st card I made for Whitney and Mike for their wedding last Saturday . I decided to go with the other card ( listed below ) mainly because it was black and white. I probably could have made this card in black and white but after making the video for the 2nd card I just went with that, PLUS Whitney's wedding was in rainbow colors and I thought black and white went better with her colors IDK I guess I may have over thought it ... but I really love the 1st card . I just may go ahead and send her this one in the mail she would totally laugh at me since she knows how I am LOL! I love how rich this color combo is with the Basic Black and Tip Top Taupe. Not...

Hi Stampers, Happy Friday friends ! Oh my what a week . I'm so sorry for my absence on Monday and Tuesday of this week . Hubby crossed the Hoka Hey Finish line on Sunday July 3rd. We ended up driving back home after crossed the finish line BUT 1st he wanted a shower . We had a hotel for Saturday and check out was at 11:00 on Sunday but they let us extend until 12 for check out so he could get a shower . We got home Sunday around 7:00pm . Hubby was so exhausted our thought was he only had Monday off from work for the holiday so getting home on Sunday was good for him to get a lot of rest before heading back to work on Tuesday . The 4th of July was a great day . Jessie and Tommy came over and we BBQ... Continue reading

Hi Stampers, Happy Sunday friends , Hubby is still riding across USA this morning . He reached the 1st checkpoint in Billings, Montana and had to get his oil changed and get a new back tire . In 96 hours since he left CA our friend Glenn has been tracking all the "Guy details " like mileage /hours / states etc... It's so awesome Glenn is doing this not only for him but for Rich to see when he gets home . Here is Glenn's latest detail sheet on Rich's journey as of yesterday at 9 am As for me.... I haven't been able to focus on much~ hardly any stamping either. I do have videos done for my July FSM club but that's seriously about all I've got done this past week . Watching the map is very addicting plus when he stops to get gas he usually gives... Continue reading
