I just placed an order with Addicted to Rubber Stamps and got a Bella there - of course their selection is limited. Create It has some as well and I think she will order for you...

I LOVE High Hopes Stamps and Pink Gem Stamps...they're more cutesy, though, and not to everyone's liking.

The other question I'll have to think about...

On their site there is a button to click to convert to US prices...they're not bad, I don't think.

The card I'm bringing for tomorrow can be used as a Father's Day card. You can have the sample. I don't have too many masculine cards laying around but I'll look and see what I can find...

well holy cow that was one heckuva thunderstorm!!. I never lost power but man I thought I was going to.. I even turned off the comp, had the emergency candles lit and the cordless flashlight at my side.. since the REAL flashlight failed to produce anything vaguely resembling illumination when I pushed the button....

some one who shall remain nameless but is a LCDR in the US Navy has FAILED in his duties to make sure all emergency measures are Satisfactory... Tsk tsk.... he KNOWS he is supposed to anticipate things 6 months out// silly Squid.

did manage to get all my 'fellas' from WRAK colored so I have something to work with Sunday when I make cards to send to Squidward.

his 'office' is actually moving locations. no more cushy behind the lines location. in fact these last 90 days I may not have ANY regular communication at all.....

I am so used to daily one hour real time conversations....I fear I am going to turen into one of "those" wives...

It must have been pretty bad up here, we have tree branches all over the yard and on the news tonight they showed where a tree fell on a car here in Ferndale! Thank God I took Rusty with me today, I don't even want to think about what would have happened if he had been home with no one there. The last time he was home alone cost us a $500 vet bill to repair the damage to his mouth from trying to chew his way out of the house! I forsee a lot of visits to doggie daycare this summer!

Dawnmarie, I may have some in my stash, I'll check in the morning and bring any with me to give you. Can't get in my stamp room right now, it doubles as my son's bedroom and he's in there asleep, don't want to wake him up turning all the lights on!

[QUOTE=Emerald77;14205725]Questions:

What is your favorite stamp company?

I'd say Stampin' Up is still my favorite, especially since I'm a hobby demo but GinaK is running a close second as far as their stamps, but I also like Papertrey's stamps, paper and ink!

What is your favorite or most used stamp(s)?

I use mostly Stampin' Up stamps because I'm basically a wood mounted girl!

I'm not sure how it was in your neighborhood, but here it was terrible! The storm was right over us so the thunder and lightning hit at exactly the same time...and was VERY loud! We had several lightning strikes close but I haven't seen any damage...the Herald Harbor area of Crownsville got it really bad. One poor house had 8 trees fall on it! I didn't like it so I know Rusty wouldn't have!!

It's 1:30 and I'm sitting here crying in my cups wondering what I'm MISSING?!??!??!
I hated that I had to miss today, but I'm glad I didn't try to come (won't go into details!) Hope you all had a good time (but I'm SURE you did!)

Let me tell y'all about my ooohhh so wonderful night....

first: YAY! Pushing Daisies is back on to air it's final three episodes and may in fact be UNcanceled!!!!!

and that..is the extent opf my happiness...

so bed at 1100. at 1130.. guess what happens.. the smoke detectpor decides it is low on battery power. Is there some law of Murphy that dictates that these sort of things can ONLY be low on power in the middle of the damn night?!


Now,. MOST smoke detectors have a nice quiet 'chirp' as an indicator. annoying, but tolerable. is mine?! NOOOOOOOO. Lucky me gets a ten second long HIGH pitch EAR SPLITTING heart attacking inducing full on shriek. that repeats every.ninety.minutes.

takes me til 2 am to figure out which one it is..whose bright idea is to put all of them in the same damn 3 square feet of ceiling and have them all have the same damn indicator lights anyway?

Now I do NOT do ladders. step stools make me nervous. it's also in the garage and weighs like ten pounds. so yes I get to haul a stepstool that I don't particularly feel confident on at 2 am all the way up three flights of stairs. on the way I Grab a 9V battery thinking I might as well actually do what is recommended instead of disconnect it..

being short ish, and unable to lift my arms ABOVE shoulder height it was of course a major hassle getting the stupid thing unhooked.

does it take 9 V batteries?! Funny you should ask that. NO. It DOESN'T. it takes short stubby 3 v batteries.. I have never seen such a thing( and when I told John about it this morning he had never heard of 'em either).

But does my successfulness make me happy? of course not. I am still overdosing on adrenaline and it is 4 am before I say screw it and take Tylenol PM.


so of course today I am grumpy,headachey and really peeved at Squidward for being deployed AGAIN when the smoke detector needs maintenance.

absolutely HAVE to mow the lawn today too. luckily the NDN that share my postage stamp sized front lawn is a peach..we trade off moving the whole thing at once and he did it this morning not five minutes before i was set to go do it myself. all he has is a manual push mower, so I took the electric one and did both our backs.

Now I am hot sticky sweaty and hungry.. haven't eaten yet. and I have all those father's day cards to finsih up today.

I am sooo going CAS and mass producing.. same layout on all three images....


btw.. 90 days and counting....

Ladies as always you made my day yesterday! Love you guys.

On June 20th we are still going to the Amish Stamp Stores and so far we have Amanda and Kathi in the van since Jane won't be able to make it.

So if you are wanting we still have room in the van. We will be meeting at my house at 6am to meet up with Cindy. If you aren't a morning person you can always sleep on the sofa bed friday night so you can just roll out, brush your teeth and come along. Michelle you know you would have fun! I plan on packing snacks and drinks so we don't have to spend lots of money on eating on the way up.lol
