Last night was a short night, as I burnt the midnight oil stamping & trying to catch up on things.  There just isn't enough hours in the day.  This past week has just been a really tough one & it has literally kicked my butt!

This morning Deke is up early to chore & head to Ottumwa for 2 meetings.  I'm up early to work on farm bookwork & then head to town to Manda's, as she has to leave early today.  I'll take the twins to school & then spend my day with the 3 little ones.  The kids & I will make a quick trip to Osky to meet Deke this afternoon at our CPA's.  The kids' nap time is sure gonna be messed up- but there just isn't any other way to do it.  The 3 big boys will ride the bus & be here after school.  Tonight when they have all gone home I'll be a stamping fool.  And I pray that I have good mojo!

Gotta run......
I hope you have a great Thursday!!
Happy Stamping!

Flowering Desert

Well......honestly- when I saw this stamp set I didn't think I needed it!  But then I saw some cute cards on line.......and I ended up getting it!  

This card is similar to one I saw on line- but I don't remember who or where (I'm sorry).  I did change it a little bit.  I rarely copy anything....but I just loved this!  I love how the big cactus is cut out & how it pops off the page!!! 

There is alot of color & fun images going on here on this card- and I added the Melon Mambo to go with it, to make it ever more bright & fun!

stamp set:  'Flowering Desert'
card stock:
  • Melon Mambo-
  • Granny Apple Green-
  • Whisper White-
ink:  Black Memento, Call Me Clover, Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce, Petal Pinkother:  Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Rectangle Stitched Framelits, Standard Platform, Corrugated Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestone, Black Bakers Twine, Bitty Blooms Punch Pack (flower punch), Dimensionals, Glue Dots
Trey was still sick yesterday, so Manda took him to see Dr. Mary.  He too had strep throat.  So is on meds & she'll stay home with him again today!  Poor guy- hope he is better soon!  And I pray that no one else gets sick!

So it was just me & the 2 little Wood kids yesterday.  And then I burnt the midnight oil working on stamping stuff.  Deke powerwashed all day & literally was gone from 7 a.m. to about 9 p.m. last night.  He didn't even stop for lunch.  I feel so bad that he is playing catch up too with all of the craziness we've had around here the past several days.  

I'm up early this morning to walk & get ready for the kids to get here.  I'll spend my day again with the 2 little ones & then Brayden will be here after bit too.  He gets one of his teeth pulled this morning, so depending on how he gets along- I think he'll be here for the rest of the day.  Tonight when the kids go home I'll be burning the midnight oil stamping again!  Deke is off early this morning to chore & go to the office at the courthouse to catch up on things there.  And then work late on the farm tonight catching up here too. 

I hope you have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!
Happy Stamping!

A larger treat pouch using the Envelope Punch board!

Here is another treat pouch I made using my Envelope Punch board.  But this one is bigger!!!  

How did I do it?
  • I took a 8x8" piece of DSP
  • I punched & scored it on all 4 sides at 4".
This pouch is big enough to fit our standard card sizes into that are 5 1/2 x 4 1/4".   It will hold approx. 3 cards & envelopes in it!!  COOL HUH!
See how they fit into it.  You can not shut the top flap- but it works great as a pouch for these 3 cards/envelopes.  
I made this for a special friend.  I used the Broadway Bound Specialty DSP!

Yesterday was a bitter sweet day!!  Dick will be missed greatly!!!  And I worry about my mom....she is going to be lost.  But Dick's service was so nice!!!  My nephew, Ben & Dick's nephew, Vince (which is our local Methodist Minister) did the service, as that is where mom & Dick go to church.  We had lots of tears & lots of laughs as we reminisced many great times over the years!  They had a military salute at the cemetery in honor of Dick's years of Army service.  And then the church ladies had a great lunch for us waiting when we got back to the church.  It was nice to spend the time with family & many we don't see often!  

I was just beat when we got home.  I haven't slept well at all this week!  I have too many things to get done & I can honestly say that I'm in stress over load mode right now.  I worked on stamping stuff!, burning the midnight oil.  But  I have LOTS more to get caught up on & things to get ready for upcoming classes I have this week!  Somehow it will all work out. 

This morning I'm off early- as school is now starts at 7:55 each morning instead of 8:20.  The kids have had 12 snow days this winter & the only way to get them made up is to lengthen the school day.  This change is going to be hard on all of us!  I'll take the 3 big boys to school & then spend my day with the 3 little ones!  The 2 big boys will ride the bus out after school.  When everyone is gone home tonight- I'll be a stamping fool, burning the midnight oil again!

I hope you have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!!
Happy Stamping!

This is a little treat pouch I made for my team that came to my celebration last month.
I used the envelope punch board to make it!!  And I added in a little gift of Clear Epoxy Enamel Hearts too!

The pouch is a 6x6" piece of DSP.  I used my Envelope Punch Board to punch & score at the 3" mark on all 4 sides!  I used my Tear & Tape to hold the bottom flap up & then wrapped a belly band around it!

card stock:  Melon Mambo, Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam
designer paper:  Garden Impressions DSP
ink:  Melon Mambo

All That You Are!

Today I'm sharing a card I made with some scraps laying on my counter!!  I used 2 strips of the Gingham Gala DSP along the edge!  This DSP is so very popular!  I just love it!

Check out this stamp set.  It is on page 2 in the Occasions Catalog!  It has neat flower images & great words to go along wit it! 

I stamped the flowers using my Black Memento & then colored them using my Stampin' Blends!

ink:  Black Memento
Stampin' Blends:   Highland Heather- light & dark, Light & Dark Granny Apple Green

Yesterday started out bright & early at 4:30 am.  It was one disaster after another.....rain, ice, stuck semi' turned into a 4 1/2 hour ordeal.  So I missed my hair cut appointment- but thankfully I got in later.  I then spent the afternoon cleaning & getting things done around the house.  And our kids came to for supper to celebrate my birthday.  We had pizza, brownies & root beer floats!  Yummy!!  The boys played a new game.  And Manda helped me set up my new camera that they all got for me.  I was beat.......when everyone left I got the dishes done, toys picked up & we called it a night.

This morning I'm up early to walk.  Deke is off early to chore.  We are headed to the funeral home- where we'll spend our day/evening.  
I hope you have a SUPER Sunday!!
Happy Stamping!

Painted Seasons DSP!

More Painted Seasons.......this time I used the DSP!  WOW!  Isn't it gorgeous!  I love these colors!
This is a fun DOUBLE Z fold card. 

I had a few special friends that needed cards sent to them this week!   This is basically the version of it......none of them were exactly the same. 
stamp set:  'Incredible Like You' (words)
card stock:

  • Poppy Parade-
  • Grapefruit Grove-
  • Whisper White- 
designer paper:  Painted Seasons DSP- part of the Painted Seasons BUNDLE- a FREE Sale-a-bration choice with a $100 product order from now until 3/31/19! 
ink:  Poppy Parade 
other:  Paper Snips to fussy cut out the flowers from the DSP; Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits (squares), Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Calypso Coral 3/8" Satin Ribbon, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
Yesterday was a busy day with kids.  We even squeezed in a quick hair cut for Trey!  (Which he needed so badly.)  The boys are into loving to play board lots of games, lots of books & a fun movie of Ferndinand was on our agenda for the day!!  When the kids went home I spent my night stamping!

We are up early this morning at 4:30 & headed out to mark, sort & load 2 semi's of hogs!  One semi got here last night- just as we were getting ready to go to bed.   He slept in his semi & he is already backed up to the building & ready to go.  Hopefully the other trucker gets here on time & all goes well with getting them both off & arriving safely at their destinations.  We are suppose to get some rain/freezing rain tonight.....just I'm just praying that it isn't slick!  We sure don't need any ice. 

When we get done with selling the hogs- Deke is going to spend the day moving piggies out of the nurseries & into the finishers.  I'm off to go pick up my mom.  We are both going to get our hair cut!  Hopefully we make it there on time.  Brayden has ball games all day we'll see if I can make it to one of them.   Hopefully I will.  

Tonight we are having supper with our kids & their families to celebrate my birthday that was earlier this week.  The boys are wanting to play games.  I told them that sounded like fun to me!  I'm sure we'll all be tired & won't be out too late.  As today was a long & busy day, but tomorrow is going to be a rough one.  As we have Dick's family viewing in the morning & his visitation from 3-7 pm.  I'm sure if the weather is good we'll have a huge crowd coming to the funeral home.  Today is kind of a bitter sweet TODAY (2/23) would have been Dick's 83rd birthday.  So we'll all be thinking of him!

Gotta run.
I hope you have a SWEET Saturday!!
Happy Stamping!

Oh......I'm tired & need to get to bed as I'm typing this post & getting it ready to post.  Yesterday was a crazy day!  Deke had a couple of meetings yesterday morning, so he got up early to chore & headed out to them.  I was up early to walk & waited to find out what was happening with kids.  School ended up getting cancelled due to the snow- so I was suppose to have all of the kids.  But Steve was sick & our gravel roads were really bad- so I didn't end up having the Seeley boys.  Masen & Ainslee were suppose to be here, but both of them were still sick- so they ended up going to the dr. & they both have strep throat.  Thus I ended up with no kids for the day & I literally stamped from 7 am to 7:30 pm.....until we got a text from my sister that our step-dad wasn't good.....and he ended up passing away before Deke & I got there.  So it was late when we ended up getting home from mom's home.  

My step-dad (Dick) hasn't been good for quite awhile.  He has been on hospice for the past couple of months.  Yesterday he actually had a really good day, until the middle of the afternoon & he went down hill fast.  He was a great guy!  So funny!  He didn't know a stranger & talked to everyone.  He was very crafty (woodworking) & could fix anything.  He was in the Army for many years, lived many places & survived the Vietnam war.  He has been married to my mom for 33 years.  And my now step-sister was actually one of my best friends in high school.  So our families have been close all of these years & us kids all get along well.  But Dick will be missed by many.  I know my mom is going to be totally lost without him & I worry about her.  But he had been in alot of pain & I'm glad that he is no longer suffering & I'm thankful that he went to so fast.  Please keep my family in your prayers (especially Dick's kids & my mom) we celebrate Dick's life & say good-bye to him.  As of right now- the arrangements haven't been made, but it sounds like his visitation will be on Sunday night & his funeral will be on Monday.  As our step-sister Rhonda lives in Texas & she was here all last week & just went back home last weekend.  I'm glad she got to spend time with him last week.  I feel bad for her that she has to come back to Iowa so soon.  

Right now school is still on regular time for I am suppose to have the 3 little ones for the day.   Deke has another meeting I'm not sure how crazy it will end up being here today.  

I hope you have a special Thursday!!
Happy Stamping!

I'm up early to walk & head to town to get the twins, take them to school & spend my day with the 3 little ones.  The buses are on hard surface routes still- so one of us will run to town to get the twins after school too.  Tonight while i'm home alone I'll be stamping!

Yesterday was a busy day stamping & having kids!  I got alot done, but not near enough.  Last night Sarah's parents came & got the today I'm going to be buried in papers- doing stuff for taxes.  I have to go to the CPA's tomorrow.  So I'm going to be hiding all day today/tomorrow morning- until I get them done.

I hope you have a SUPER Sunday!!
Happy Stamping!
