This week has been so crazy, moving is a lot of work! We are leaving Tuesday
and hope to be in GA on Thursday Night!!
That's the plan!! The kids, 2 dogs & 2 Guinea Pigs will be riding with me in our mini van.
Jason will be driving the moving truck. Gotta love road trips!!
Hopefully the kids will take turns riding with Jason.
The boys want to play the Wii in the car but We said no to that.....
so they agreed to play the game cube instead!!
Madeline will listen to her MP3 player, read & Sleep!!
She's the easy one!

Technique Wednesday-Week 1

Rock & Roll
1) Tap stamp on light-colored ink pad.
2) Press edges of stamp in a rolling motion on darker ink pad, being careful not to ink the center of the stamp.
1) Always use the lightest colored ink first to avoid getting dark ink on your light ink pad.
2) This technique works best when using a bold stamp image.

This is such a fun way to utilize your stamps. Sorry I am so late today. I had to pack up my brothers apartment. He left for D.C. yesterday. That's where we grew up, his dad is still there.
Hopefully Jacob will go into treatment for drugs. I just have to put Jacob in Gods hands. Please say a prayer for my brother, he's only 19. He's the baby and I'm the big sister! We are leaving for GA on Tuesday, so this week is so super busy!!

Happy Stamping

You want to know why I'm Moving to GA??
We lived in GA in 2004-2006 and since we moved back here to Minnesota(2006-now)
my hubby's has made $30,000 less a year!! We just can't make it here in MN.
My Stampin' Up! Business was much busier in GA then MN. In the 2 years we have lived here (MN) I have not done 1 Workshop!!! MN is very saturated with Stampin' Up!
Demonstrators. There is one on every street corner!
My Stampin' Up! Upline is in GA, so I am so excited about going to meetings again!!
And my hubby's family is in GA. And did I forget to mention...
So there you have my reasons.......
Here is a card I made a few days ago.
I know the picture is a little blurry sorry my camera is still broken!
