Stamp It Up And I'm So Sorry



It is time for another blog hop with Madame Samm and Thearica leading the way.  Unfortunately, I somehow got the dates messed up and missed my posting time last night.  I'm so sorry if you are coming back here today because of my mistake.  Please accept my apology and know that I am truly sorry for the mix up.


Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes and 10 million snowflakes.  If you go anywhere in Minnesota you are probably going to find at least one lake, and I'm not kidding!  The lakes are beautiful and they have a lot of wildlife with them.  It is definitely a beautiful state to live in.  I am realizing now the "stamp" edges are kind of hard to see on this photo, and I spent so much time trying to get them all lined up and spaced correctly.


I used the Accuquilt GO! for the snowflakes, the Cricut to cut the letters, and a LOT of Heat n Bond.

Again, I apologize for missing my day, but please check out the other participant's stamp creations.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Oh heck we all have our moments of confusion! Glad you got your lovely stamps posted. Minnesnowta, LOL What a perfect stamp you have created. I can't believe I just spent last night hand cutting out snowflakes for a project, when I have that darn accuquilt die too. Thanks for the reminder! :-)

Great stamp. Love it 10,000 lakes and 10 million snowflakes. I am sure it really felt that way this past year.

Charlie and Wendy said...

Your stamp is beautiful, the colours are amazing.

Leslie said...

I know several people from MN. Snowflakes and lakes...that's what they tell you about. Darling quilt.

BizyStitches said...

Love your stamp. I would love to visit you state sometime. Thanks for the fun.

Joanna said...

I never realized Minnesota had so many lakes; must be beautiful. I think using the snowflake die is smart; now you have something already made for later this year. Very pretty stamp.

Gmama Jane said...

It happens to all of us so all is well! Your lovely stamp was worth the wait. I've never been to Minnesota but hope to some day. I love winter and would enjoy your snow.
Blessings

Kristen, I figured something was wrong when you were not up yesterday. As long as I have been following the hops, you are Johnny on the Spot. Don't be so hard on yourself, girl!

I swear I would not necessarily know what day it is, being retired ---they all blend together. I am lucky to know it is Wednesday, LOL.

I love your stamp! I have been to parts of Minnesota in my child hood, and in fact, spent my 10th birthday in the headwaters at the Mississippi. Lots of lakes, pretty state.

I love those snowflakes too. I am going to have to see if any of my friends have that die as that would work out wonderfully for a redwork project as the alternating block! The cricut did a good job on the lettering too!

CharlotteT said...

Okay, 30 lashes with a wet noodle. Now you've paid your dues!
LOL! We all make mistakes. Loved your stamps they are beautiful!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh Kristen, life happens to all of us. It was so worth the wait! It is just wonderful!! Love the blue you used, just like your lakes!

LJ said...

That's not a problem for us hoppers, Kristen. Your stamp was worth it. I love the colors you used. MN is a super fun state to visit; my hubby and I will be biking some trails there next week. You guys have super bike trails!!

Emily C said...

Very lovely stamp. Beautiful colors and I love the way you wrapped the letters in a circle.

Robin Sheaffer said...

I would love to see your lakes but the snowflakes you can surely keep!! Your stamp looks great!
