News,News,News & A Birthday Card Post.

You know we sold our home--- has been a real hunt to find another.I had about given up and decided to search the MLS one more time and found our forever home.It is small and has a great corner lot and in a great little town.We are really close to the highway for my husbands job that in one year will be taking him to Battle Creek every day.This is halfway between Battle Creek and our three sweet grands in Grand Rapids.More miles but faster in time due to it all being highway.We are so excited to be moving into something we do not spend all the time taking care of.Mowing acreage gets old really fast when you get older.Only drawback is we will be moving in the winter with all the snow we have on the ground...Did that once before and swore we would never do it again...should not have sworn.Our son will be helping us --all the payback for loaning his dad to him for basement repair.OK on to the fun stuff.

I saw this card idea at a convention and decided to make my own version when I spied these super cute glass frames from Jolees.The words are all computer generated.The inside eye chart is from a JPG that came up in a Google search of small printable eye charts.I reduced it by 50%.The hand is unknown and the polka dot card stock is from Me and My Big Ideas.The googly eyes are from Hobby Lobby.

Looking For A Buyer.

We put our house on the market 2 weeks ago and tomorrow and Saturday we have showings.I hope it is like House Hunters on HGTV and they go at it in a bidding war....ya not happening I will bet..Anyway here is my stamp space--our agent hired a photographer and here is the pic he took of my space.
Bad news is I have to move all that stuff and we are downsizing to a ranch we hope.If anyone is looking for a house send them our way here is the link to the listing

I  never buy SU but a friend was having a huge sale as she is a demo for them.I loved this set with an old bike and ferris wheel .Both stamps are from SU.The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and all card stock is from DCWV.The panel with the ferris wheel image was daubbed with river rock ink from SU.The inside has the same tone paper as a liner.

Wishing For Spring.

I have an idea that Spring is going to pass right over my area and continue snowing.We had 31 inches of snow fall in a week and half fell over a 24 hour period.The mountains of snow along the highway going into Holland MI are three feet from the utility pole wires.So my offering today is all pink and flowery in hopes it will bring spring a little bit faster.
Card body is from DCWV as is the plaid paper.The little flower trim is from DoodleBug,called cupcake trim.The rose graphic is from Graphic 45 and the flower comes from Jolees.The stick pin is from CTMH.I happened to have some flower paper that matched the pinks and greens so used it for the inside.I will add a sentiment inside later.

The New Envelope Punch Board--Would You Buy It?

I happened to use one of these at Archiver's while visiting Indy Indiana a couple of weeks ago.I was not that impressed and thought it was rather costly for just making enves.This tutorial was one of the better ones I ran across so let me know what your thoughts on the envelope punch board are and if you would purchase one.If you have one let me know how you like it.
