    Tags of Thanks With needing to send out some catalogs and prizes the So Sentimental bundle will make the perfect Tags of Thanks. Add in a few pieces of bling, a few flowers and of course butterflies!! What would you have added?? Funny how just adding a couple things different they all kinda change. I would even change the orientation of the base piece. Change up the layers too. You can follow along step by step with the facebook live. I am sorry this one has not been uploaded to youtube. I will work on that. Are you already a subscriber to my YouTube channel. Do you want to be…

    Fun Time at the Hamscher Homestead

    Fun time at the Hamscher Homestead!! These two have been running around after each other. I would say that they are having a fun time at the Hamscher Homestead. Wouldn’t you?? Hide and seek was the first game. Secondly, we move on too.. King of the mountain. They play this one often.. every once and a while you will see feathers through the tub cover. I do have to laugh because they are really finding out what is going on around them. Check on visitors when they arrive too! Still quiet most of the time. Just a reminder of two weeks ago, just a huge different from two weeks ago……

  • Happy Birthday

    As promised, step three, Happy Birthday

    Happy Birthday, Korine… Wanting to be sure not to go with the red, white and blue theme for this card. When you have a birthday around a holiday, I really try to make the card extra special. Now, some will say, what is the big deal. However, mom always told stories about her holiday birthday’s. She was getting gifts in Christmas wrappings, etc. So that is why I try to be aware of how that must feel. First, let us not miss that cute little slip, topped with ribbon. What would you use it for? I use mine to mark my calendar or even my book page. I know that…

    Happy 4th of July to you and your family.

    Happy Birthday America! Sounds kinda funny saying Happy Birthday to a Country, but… That really is what today is all about. How as a new country “we” decided “we” wanted freedom from Tierney and Oppression. Those freedoms were as the result of many brave men and women. Freedoms that at times get taken for granted. As a Marine mom, I have a small understanding of the drive that it takes to be brave and go off to fight for those freedoms. The worry of a family when loved ones go on faith and belief that our country stands for Freedom. These freedoms that are still alive today, gratefully!! Hugs and…

    Flowers for Every Season, just a flower??

    This is more then just a flower… Would you agree?? I have a friend that loves sunflowers. So I wanted to be sure to send this amazing card to her. Cutting out the petal outline two times and layering them … AMAZING!! I bet you remember the cards we did for Coffee and Cards on Saturday. Well the Jar punch is part of this same suite. Flowers for Every Season (154132), is what I like to call a “super” suite, because it has two stamp set bundles, ribbon, DSP, embellishments, Shaker Domes, Memory and More card pack and cards. But that is not all! It also includes four of the…

    A very sick little kitty and they grow so fast

    Happy he is home! I ended up taking White Sox to the emergency vet on Saturday night. Please someone explain why this happens on the weekends instead of during the week?? Anyway, due to a couple things on his blood work they decided to keep him for at least 12 hours. I just hate going home with no pet. The pets in the house freak out and get all depressed. And it has been about a year since the last time I came home empty handed. ugghh. Thankfully they checked his blood work again about noon on Sunday and it came back more normal. After doing a small cheer, I…

    Kitties and Chicks

    Thursday morning…. Joe is off to work and I can actually sleep in! The house should be relatively quiet, right?? Apparently NOT!! Mooch woke me up snoring in my ear. geezz, I know that I snore, but holy cow. I can not fix his snoring. Their feathers are coming in… Joe told me the other day… “So, Amazon dropped off their legs today?” It truly is amazing how quick these babies grow. As you can see from the top of this photo, the tail feathers are starting to come in. They are still very quiet. Except once… Joe and I were at the kitchen table and heard some loud chirps.…

    Snow Front?

    Sure does not look like a snowy scene. I really love how much this set changes when you change the colors. You can check the facebook live here. The only thing that was subtracted was the “smoke” from the chimney. To do that was just a matter of not inking that section of the cabin. Funny how the look changes also when you watercolor or just straight stamp. Can you tell which is which?? The first one (left) is the straight stamp. How can you tell? The leaf colors are darker. The “grass” in that one is where we started the watercolor technique. They the leaves on the second (middle)…
