I actually got a lot done this weekend! Friday, I worked on two sets of cards for a customer. I still have one to go. And Lauri came over to visit for awhile. We didn’t get to stamp together like we’d planned but did go through the catalog and checked off things each of us has so we can borrow sets if and when we need to.

     Saturday I went through bills (ugh) and finally got my quickbooks check register straightened out. And while watching the Saint’s game I  took a little inventory of ribbon, reinkers and such and reorganized them. Sometimes I feel like all I do is organize and reorganize and still can’t find stuff.

    Today after church, I wrote some cards and actually dug in the garbage! Not the yucky can from the kitchen but the one on the porch that has my stampin’ scraps in it. Last night when I was cleaning up I threw away some letters from a card I made with the Little Letters thinlits. I used the negative for that card and threw out the actual letters-because I won’t ever use those! Well, I had another man card to do and those were the perfect letters! So here I am digging them out of the garbage. This is the reason crafters never throw anything away!

     Just got back from a funeral for a high school friend’s mother and sister. Chris’ mother was a wonderful lady that I had seen alot of during my days at U-High but never really knew. But a few years ago she came in for therapy at a place where I volunteered. She had 15 children–(not a typo) and was one of those people that still found time for many other things. The sister died the day after her mother, of cancer. The service was very nice, although bitter sweet.

     Here is one of the sets of cards I did for my friend Carolyn. She wanted three sets of all occasion cards without sentiments but just her initial on the cards. This is a simple layout: card base with DSP, a ribbon and the greeting or in this case the initial hung below.

Try something like this, especially when you have to whip out a card or two in a hurry!

Happy stampin’,
