After shopping for cars for a little over a week, my awesome husband finally got me this:
And so far it seems amazing. Not that he has actually let me drive it yet, but I am sure that I will get my turn soon :)

We have been super busy with the car shopping, but I do have one card to share.

Love how this turned out, and I love this stamp from the May KOM, and I needed some birthday cards so I did have a good excuse to spend time in my craft room, instead of helping with the car stuff for a bit today...

Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial day! Today we remember those who gave their lives serving the country, and thank the veterans who serve the country and help keep us all safe every day.

A few cards to share, and then we are off to a ceremony at the military cemetary.

 I love these Alice in Wonderland stamps from TJ Designs, and the papers are from Echo Park and PTI.

Another attempt at using up papers from my scrap basket. I really like how this turned out, and the sentiment stamp is from Unity.

Love Bunny FWF

Made this card for the Unity FWF (this is the first time I am doing the FWF).
Love this bunny, he is from the Spring set, and I am planning to send the card to my hubby when he goes to Iraq next month.

Made these in an attempt to use up some of all the scraps in my rather large basket...

Rainy day!

Today is grey and rainy, kind of matches my mood this morning.... I should be happy, SAMS is over and everyone seems to be doing well today (hopefully no more trips to the ER for a while), but the deployment date seems impossibly close - even if it is 2 months away - it feels like a black cloud hanging over us and it is always there in the back of my mind, even when we are having a good time. I miss Denmark too, it has been too long since we went there to visit. Two years is a long time not to go home. I am still hoping that our next assignment will be somewhere in Europe so I can get home more often, and so the kids can get to see more of Europe too.

Wish I was in Copenhagen looking at this today, she is beautiful!

A couple of cards from last night:
The stamp is from Unity, and the dp is SEI.

I have no idea where this stamp is from, it was a gift from a past coworker and I dont think I ever used it beore. The card was in a box of premade cards from DCWV that I found in a box when cleaning, I just inked it with yellow ink and the whole card took less than 10 minutes to make.

TFL, and have a wonderful day!

It has been a few weeks since last post. The SAMS finals are finally over and Vaughn is back to acting like a human again.... The last week before his oral comps was not easy, he was gone most of the time and when he was home, he was not in a good mood, it was trying for all of us. He passed his comps however and now we do have a few months to enjoy some much needed family time before he deploys in July. 
Crating, well mostly stamping lately, is keeping me sane, and here are a few cards to share:

I love how bright and cheery this is, and love the plaid ribbon. The stamps are from Unity, and I colored the bee with Copics and added some flowersoft for texture.

Guess I made this because I am thankful that SAMS is done :) Again stamp is from Unity, and the papers are from Echo Park and PTI.
