I’m Baaacckk!!

Hi Peeps!

I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve had a stamp in my hand.  That little last minute trip to Phoenix sure put a crimp in my crafty life.  But all’s well that ends well.  Hubby’s eyes are healing fabulously (thanks to all who prayed – it worked!!), and will be completely healed within the next two weeks.  Isn’t that amazing?!!  And after 1600+ miles and 28 hours on the road, we are now safe and sound at home in Washington.  AND all was accomplished BEFORE the arrival of baby Brecken and youngest DD’s graduation.  Woohoo!!
Happy Birthday Banner
Needless to say, I haven’t been able to stamp since I got imagehome, but luckily I did a little stamping before I left.  This is a card that I put together for my friend Terri’s birthday that’s coming up this weekend.  It features one of the My Cute Stamps sets that I hadn’t inked up before – it’s called Tea Party Girl.  And boy was it FUN!!  Isn’t that cake super cute?!!  My mind was going a million miles a minute with more ideas for this darling set.  Can’t wait to get a chance to get back in my stamp room and go to town with it!  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Clear Set called Birthday Messages.
STAMPS:  Tea Party Girl (My Cute Stamps), Birthday Messages (Hero Arts), Merry & Bright (PTI), Merry & Bright Additions (PTI)

That’s it for me today.  I hope to be back later this week with something new to share with you.  In the meantime, thanks so much for stopping by today!

So glad that I stopped by today, great card...now I don't even have to open up the envelope, lol! I guess this means that you don't need the "sticky note" info anymore, right? Sorry, I would have sent that information ASAP, had I known you were going to post the card today. You crack me up!

Hope you aren't drowning up there...supposed to be in the mid 80's and climbing here, lol!
