I'm So Excited....

And I wanted to share!
My husband who is currently deployed sent me some pictures today.
I very seldom get to hear from him, sometimes 2 weeks at a time! So, to get some pictures...Well, that's just AWESOME!!!!






That is a Camel Spider! My hubby told me that when they bite you it numbs your skin and they eat away at your flesh! YUCK!!!!

A Vintage Challenge at Sweet Stampin!

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to let you know that there is a Brand New Challenge at Sweet Stampin!
This weeks challenge is Vintage.
Now, vintage isn't really my thing. Don't get me wrong, I like it, I think it is very pretty, I just don't do it. With that said, below is my attempt at the 'dreaded vintage'! lol Don't be to harsh! ;0)







This card was made using CTMH projects. The papers and cardstock are from the Veranda line. The stamped images are from the Felicity & One of a Kind stamp sets. The buttons, lace are from my stash and the sentiment was printed from the computer.

I'm Finally Back!

Finally, it seems like forever since I've been here. As most of you know, my husband is deployed to Afghanistan. He left in May and during the month of June, our Battalion lost numerous soldiers...Double digits! With that said, the stress was beginning to get to me. We have 3 children, 4, 6 & 7 and they were noticing that I was stressed. So, needing a break from life, we packed up and went to visit family for a few weeks. It was a much needed break and I'm happy to say that I am feeling a little better. Please keep the family members of the fallen Soldiers in your prayers.

Okay, now on to a happier note. Before I left I received an award! Gigi from The Cricut Bug gave me a Trendy Blog Award. Thanks Gigi! Sorry I am just now getting it posted.



I now get to pass this award on to 5 blogs that I think are "Trendy"! So, here it goes....

1.) Kristen @ KAH-Wink-E-Dink
2.) Diane @ 1CardCreator
3.) Scrappy @ It's a Scrappy World
4.) Stef @ Glitterbabe Greetings
5.) Alison @ Hairy Harry's Craft
