Today was busy, working on swaps, making on-line order thank you cards, and my Top Ten Cards for my downline. So I am going to share some past posts with stamp sets that are retiring ok?

Inspired by Nature
Inspired by Nature is a fun set, ya gotta love that grass.  This card shows what to do with those extra cardboard boxes.

Autumn Splendor
Autumn Splendor was a great set too.  Plus this post has an awesome French Dip Recipe.

Herb Expressions
Herb Expressions was fun to color.  I love to color flowers cause it is so forgiving, you don't have to stay in the lines. It is fun to read some of the past posts from these cards.  I really should find out how to print my blog...cause it is kinda like a diary sometimes.

Notably Ornate
Notably Ornate is a great set, and if you don't get it by the end of the month, you are in luck as it can be found as a digital download through My Digital Studio.

Have a Seat
Have a Seat was a fun set, the chairs, the fun things you could add to them. Oh and this punch is retiring too. 

Well this old gal better say nightie night.  I saw this thing with Dr. Oz about setting your alarm an hour before you go to bed so you start to get ready.  I am not sure if you also set it to get up or not.  He said we need 8 hours...I think...a night...I don't really get that much.

Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

One of The Nicest Things about being a Demonstrator is all the amazing friendships. This set reminds me of my BFF Tracy.

Beary Best Friends
Beary Best Friends is a fun set to color.

Home Grown
Homegrown is fun with the vegetables,it was fun to pair up with the Countryside set (you know me and that pick up truck...ha!). If I actually canned stuff it would be neat to make labels.

That's all I will share with you today, there sure are some sets I will miss.

Did you watch The Hatfields and McCoys? The first night of the mini series started.  I have enjoyed it so far, I hope it is good.  I just remember Lonesome Dove, remember that mini series?

New Digs for the Girls

002 copy

So today Jeff finished the girls new pen, the weather has been gorgeous this weekend so that has helped. Here he is finishing up the roof.  We have them totally enclosed so nothing can get them from all angles.

005 copy
Here it is from this side.  You can see the coop fits perfect in there and they can run all the way around it.  Jeff took the original door off it so they can go in and out as they want, he also still has that other little small hole that they used to use to go into their side run so they go in and out there too.

006 copy
Another angle, Jeff put an old saw horse in there if they want to roost on it.  He might have to make a ladder to get up to it.

007 copy
This is a fun picture cause it shows their old side run beside the new one...wow what a difference eh?

010 copy
Here they are, and I tried to take it through the chicken wire.  They are picking on Fiji a bit, but they are just going to have to work it out, at least now there is enough room they can get away from each other.  Tonight they are all roosting together so I am hoping all will be well eventually. Jeff is going to run water to the side and put in a leveling water thing so that we don't have to use the plastic water thing. He can have it for the Chuk-lets when he moves them to their pen.

014 copy
When Jeff is not building chicken yards he is the grill master.  He made BBQ ribs for supper.  Yum.

Oh and the little chukar that got under the counter...too funny, when Jeff went to open the barn this morning he could hear them making a racket and he was wondering what was going on.  That little one that had got loose, had flown up and was pacing back and forth at the brooder trying to help the others escape...ok not really, he was trying to get back in with his syblings, and they were all sqwaking. So after chasing it in the barn and even all the way around the outside of the barn he finally caught it and got it back inside the brooder.  

Well this old gal is off to bed.  It's after midnight.

Have a great Monday and thanks for stopping in.

The days are ticking down for the current catalog.  So if there is anything you are wanting off the retiring list, please let me know right away. You only have until May 31. A bunch of the retiring accessories are running out or are already gone.

Stamp Club was fun today and I think the girls liked their make n takes. It was fun showing them the new pads and telling them how easy they are to ink up the stamps now.

Jeff, Eric and I moved half the Chuk-lets over into the second brooder. I am thinking we should have done that before they could fly.  You should have seen us, trying not to lift the lid up too high so they could fly out, some did and we had to wrangle them up.  We did lose one as he got behind the counter bench thing, so I am hoping he makes his way out and is ok, Jeff says he will probably die. Well I am looking at the positive side of it, why can't he when it is all quiet walk around and make his way out from the cupboard? Maybe he will figure out how to open the brooders and let all his siblings escape in the middle of the night (so Madagascar-ish) and when Jeff opens up the barn in the morning they will be ready and fly away. Wouldn't that be something. I can hear them now...

 

...Move It!!

As soon as I saw this hostess set I was in love...I mean you know I love to color.  One of the perks of being a Demonstrator (and there are many) is we can pre-order certain things, certain times of the year.  So I ordered this hostess set.   I copied the card layout from my sweet friend Anna Wight (Hi Anna...hey the coop is almost done...yay!!!)

001 copy

Stamp Set: Summer Afternoon - earn yours for free by booking your workshop now, or joining one of my stamp clubs.

Paper: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Watercolor paper, Comfort Cafe DSP

Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Lucky Limeade, Sahara Sand

Misc: Early Espresso Bakers Twine, Neutral Button

I was right too, it was fun to color.  I have a 7 page PDF tutorial if you wanna learn how easy it is to color with the ink refills.  In fact my new pads were so juicy, just one or two squeezes put enough ink on the inside of the lid to paint. 

Oh I had someone email me and say "where's that cute ice cream cone card you did?"

You mean this one?

011 copy

Here's the link to the tutorial to show how easy it is to make the ice cream scoops.

Well this old gal is off to beddie bye.

Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.
