'A Mother's Flair'

When I went to Milwaukee last weekend I took some card projects for my team & stamping friends to make.  This is one of the cards.  This is a cute stamp set.   I love this little purse!

The font & the words in this stamp set- 'A Mother's Flair' are super cute too!  These words are perfect for many different occasions.

We burnt the midnight oil again last night.  I was stamping & Deke was in the field.  

This morning we are up early.  Deke is headed out to chore & off to Mt. Pleasant for a meeting there.  I'm up early to work on stamp stuff & then head out to town to get the boys, take the twins to school & spend my day with the 3 little ones.  Hopefully the twins go to school today- as Drake was sick yesterday & Manda took him to the dr yesterday afternoon.  And then Brody fell at recess & hurt his ankle- so hopefully he can walk on it & it is better this morning.  I'm so ready for Spring & healthy kids.  

Tonight our plan as now is be in town at 6:30 for the twins first soccer game.  I'll hurry home & burn the midnight oil stamping again.  I have 3 classes this weekend & lots yet to do.  And Deke plans to work in the field again late tonight.   But there is alot going on today, so who knows if things will all go as planned or not. 

Please keep my mom in your prayers today.  She has heart catheter procedure done.  If there is a blockage, as they think there is, then she'll have a stint put in & have to stay over night.  I hope everything goes well. 
I hope you have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!  
Happy Stamping!


  1. I read your blog everyday, thanks for all your ideas. I know you cut a lot of paper for your classes (wish I could attend but I live in Connecticut) Sam Hammond SU demonstrator from the UK showed an automatic cutting machine she uses this week. I thought you might want to take a look.

    1. I'm glad you check out my blog! Thanks!! Great to know! Yes- I do cut alot of paper. I use a 15" Carl Cutter for my larger pieces, but anything 3 1/4" or smaller I cut all of them with my SU! Paper Trimmer that I love! I know Sam very well! She is a dear friend. I met her several years back on a SU! incentive trip & we always try to connect with her each year on the trips. She is very talented & so very sweet!

    1. Thank you for your prayers! They did not find a blockage- so she came home. Now to find out what is going on is her next step.
