Oklahoma Thank You

It has been a very interesting week!  Last Saturday was crop night so I decided that I needed to wash the puppies.  Everybody outside… soap, towels, teen, puppies, mommy.  Everybody was present.  I was washing Radar and stood up so that I could get him rinsed and lost my balance – fell backwards and landed on the edge of the brick fire pit.  One broken tailbone later and the puppies were clean. 

Great – it is crop night and I could not sit…. now what?  Tough I am having crop!  I was not able to sit for very long and would have to get up and walk around but I was able to get some creative time in and I was able to play with my friends. 

I had to work Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and with the help of my work buddies I made it.  The guys pulled me up out of my chair when I was stuck and fashioned a donut pillow out of blankets when I needed one.   It did not take me long to run to the store to find a donut pillow Smile  that thing is a life saver.

Finally – my Oklahoma Tornado Relief stamp came in the mail and I was able to sit and get some cards made.  I used the Retired Originals Card Confidence book page  the First Impressions card.  Then I grabbed my Dreamin’ paper pack – now I was cooking!


With the pattern and couple of sheets of paper I will be able to make

10 thank you cards. 

My other excitement for the week is a new tool I found.

We R Memory Keepers - Envelope Punch Board


I have never been able to make my own envelopes and now with this board I am able to make over 60 different sizes!  This is a card makers dream!
