Country INKers Spring Social

Lots and Lots of Happy Mini Card Diana Gibbs Stampin' Up!

This Lots of Happy Card Kit is so beautiful and it is fun to sit and color, I used the Stampin' Blends on this one and changed up the colors. This card is so adorable, and would be perfect atop a present or even flowers for a friend. Oh and I love that you can order a refill kit, so when you want to make more you can just get the card guts and not all the stuff you do not need doubles of!

The stampers that are coming to my team Country INKers Spring Social (it is available local or virtual - no matter where you live) are getting this kit as well as other goodies in their swag bag.  Let me know if you want more information on how you can attend.

Double Flower Beauty

Lots of Happy Double flower Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

I almost didn't blog, Typepad was down and I was about to give up and call it a night, and I thought I will try one more time, and presto!

I played around tonight with the beautiful new kit "Lots of Happy". I have a Pop-Up class with this kit on the 27th of January.  I have a couple seats left if you want to attend, let me know right away! It is also one of the things my Country INKers Spring Social stampers will be getting in their swag bag. But if you can't take the class and you can't attend my Spring Social, no worries you can order this kit in my online store, and it will be delivered right to your door...you can even make it in your jammies, sipping on hot cocoa and watching your favorite movie. Now how fun does that sound? 

Oh and to show I am not perfect, I boo-booed my greeting so I just stamped on some whisper white, used my stitched shapes framelit and cut out a new circle then mounted over my boo-boo. Another presto! What a magic night eh?

Heartfelt Blooms ~ Sale-A-Bration

Heartfelt Blooms Berry Burst Diana Gibbs Sale-A-Bration

This is a new stamp set available for Free during Sale-A-Bration "Heartfelt Blooms" and it uses a new patent pending style of stamping called Distinktive.  It lays ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth. It looks like a photo right? I mean this was one ink of the Berry Burst Ink Pad and look how gorgeous, all that detail.

Heartfelt Blooms Foil Frenzy DSP Diana Gibbs Sale-A-Bration

Using the new Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP on the bottom adds some sparkle and shine.

New Hearing Aids Time

So today I went to pick up my new hearing aids, I had them ordered at the beginning of 2017 but they had a temp person working there and she had the benefits all messed up so when I went to pick them up the real guy was working and they were super expensive and I was like "this is not what I was told" so they apologized that I was told wrong and I sent them back.

So after such a crazy medical year, scorpion sting that I found out I was highly allergic to and all the other issues with my throat etc. by the time the end of the year came around I was able to order them again at a reasonable price.

So now I go through getting used to new ones.  It is similar to new glasses you need to leave them on and get used to them, taking them off and putting your old ones on does not work.  Although now I have a back up pair when I ever have to send these in for a check up.  I do feel they need to be turned up as I feel like I am shouting to hear my voice, and I can do that with my phone or a little button on the aids, but the Doc wants me to take them on a test run for 2 weeks and see if I turn them up a lot and if I do when etc.  Then she can adjust them accordingly in 2 weeks.  They have a different dealie bob that goes around my neck to connect to my phone, that is way smaller, and does not make me look like a football coach like my old one, it was so ugly...I mean people would go "what is that?" and I would say "I'm the head coach for the 49ers" OK I really didn't but still it was horrible. So if you see me and I am like saying "huh, what?" that is why...ha!

Mel and I

So before I went to the appointment I met my sweet girlie girl Mel for a birthday lunch, I was gonna drive the next time we went out so she could go for a ride in the Green Hornet (she calls her Dusti - since I live in the desert and she does get dusty), but she had to get back to work so she got in and checked her out anyway before I headed to my appointment. I had to show her how cool it looks when I call her on the phone...

Mel on phone

...I told her it was like she was watching me drive.

 Next time we will go for a spin.

So I was gone most of the day, it was dark when I got home anyway.  No stamping got done at all.  Toby is getting older and he has belly issues (pancreatic or something) now and then and this morning was one of them...not a fun way to start your day...you can read between the lines what I had to clean up.

I did meet Mike and Jacque and picked up some delicious tamales for supper on the way home, still warm even...yum.  So all in all a fun day just not a lot of work got done...although Jeff and I are registered for OnStage in April. I can't wait to see everyone.

Had to Use a Real Shoelace

Epic Celebrations Converse Diana Gibbs

I was messing around the other day and just had to take a picture of the fun new Epic Celebrations Sale-A-Bration stamp set with my fave pair of converse.

Then I totally had to make a card, and I even used a real shoelace.

So Toby said "Hey Mummy you can't show the chickens and not show me", so here is little bub, laying in his suitcase bed. 

Toby in his suitcase bed.

He freaked me out the other night, he is 10 and getting a little slower, and he was on the couch and then he started crying and limping and I was like OMG! I held him and gave him a glusomene pill or whatever they are called and we went to bed, him on his spot on the bed. In the morning he was all good, so I think he just hurt his hip or knee.  It sucks to get old when you are a dog too.
