Stationary

My grandparent's anniversary was on Sunday and I made them this stationary as a little present. They have asked me to design some stationary for them and I thought I would give them my test design as a gift. I even had an address stamp made for them so I can put their return address on the envelopes. I wasn't really sure the best way to wrap them so I used some 5/8" grosgrain ribbon and made a medallion for the front.

Stamps: Lovely Letters Alphabet, So Manny Scallops
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Note Cards & Envelopes
Ink: Brocade Blue, Real Red
Accessories: Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch

More Lincoln

Billy & I went to my parents house for Easter and my brother thought it would be funny if ever one signed Lincoln's "cast". Lincoln is doing better, especially after getting some of easter dinner. :) He goes back to the vet tomorrow so hopefully he won't have to wear a "cast" much longer.

So I know my blog has turned into being about Lincoln but this is all I have done since my life is consumed by work right now.

Poor Lincoln


So Lincoln gave us a little scare this morning. I was sitting in my office at home working & Lincoln was with me. I looked down at him & he had blood all over his foot. When I went to take a closer look I discovered that he had broken a toenail by chewing on it. Luckily our vet is open on Saturday mornings and they had me bring him right over. The bad thing is that they had to remove the nail and bandage his foot up. I am starting to thing my dog is accident prone. (This is not the first time we have rushed to the vet.) Oh well. We go back to the vet on Monday & they will look at it again to see if it is doing better & rebandage it. For now he is very pitiful looking.

I hope to get to make and post some new cards soon. Between work, Easter & the drama I haven't had time to make any cards.

Too small ???


Billy & I are dog sitting for one of my co-workers & Lincoln has decided he likes Taz's crate better than his own. Lincoln's crate is the larger one on the right. Taz has a little crate since he is a Chihuahua & half the size of Lincoln.

Ink: Barely Banana, Certainly Clery, Pretty in Pink, Lavendar Lace, Appricot Appeal, Bashful Blue

Anniverary Card

Here is the card I made for my grandparent's anniversary. The will be married 62 years on Sunday. I just got the "Just Celebrate" set from the Occasion Mini & the owl just called out to me. I saw this card on Angie Kennedy Juda's Blog, Chic 'n' Scratch. (I love her blog!) I knew I had to try this card as soon as I saw it. She used River Rock for the lighter color which I don't own yet so I substituted Sahara Sand. I think it turned out pretty well. I used the saying from the stamp on the inside which says "Whoo Hoo".

Stamps: Just Celebrate
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Choclate Chip, Sahara Sand, More Mustard Markers, Dimensionals

Our Big Snow

video
We got about four inches of snow just over a week ago. Can you believe it major snow in March. Well it was also the first snow that amounted to anything. Since Lincoln loves the snow we bundled up and drove up the road to the local dog park & let him loose. He ran like the wind & bunny hopped though the snow.
