What have I been doing for a week (since I last posted on my blog)???? Well, probaby like everyone else .... I have been at home! I've been taking long walks, making more cards, eating too much .... you know how it is! Mother's Day was last Sunday and what a different Mother's Day it was. I had a bit of a pity party for myself Sunday morning. I was missing my kids and knew I'd only hear from one of them and I was missing my mom although we saw her on Saturday and I did see Ashley via Zoom on Saturday too. It was funny on Saturday. We all met up at this restaurant that was closed and had our own tailgate. Marianne and Greg came with their Chick Filet, Mom and Angela showed up with McDonald's, I had Jets pizza and salad and Sonny enjoyed a burger from 5 Guys! I guess that's one good thing about the food situation - you can go to whichever restaurant you want and then just find a good spot in a parking lot to enjoy. We were socially distant in the parking lot (brought our own chairs too!) Mom has a mask but as long as we were masked, we didn't make her put hers on.
Before I show you some of the cards I've made, I want to show you our newest member of the family - Abigail! She is one week and 2 days old!
The new catalog will be available June 3. If you are a customer of mine, you will be receiving one in the mail. If not, contact me and I can send you one. Here are a few cards I have made with some of the retiring stamps. If you see something you like, I would suggest you purchase it now before they are gone for good.
|This Little Piggy is a really cute set. I paired it with Under the Umbrella (which is NOT retiring) The music notes are from Music from the Heart.|
|This card and the next two are made using Music from the Heart. I am really surprised that this stamp is retiring. It deputed in the last Mini Catalog and was inspired by Million Sales Achiever Dawn Olchefske.|
|I will be keeping this stamp set to make cards for my music loving friends and family.|
Here is another jewel! I love these dancing women. Another great birthday card for your friends.
