Friday Again!

Wow, Friday again already! Time has flewn by in the past few weeks, and now there is less than 24 hours until my awesome husband has to leave for his 12 month deployment.  I am trying not to be sad, and just enjoy the day....

Here is my card for FWF this week:

Another FWF Friday!

It has been about a week since my last post. We have been busy spending time together before my husband leaves next Saturday for Iraq. Guess what the lonely nights will be spent doing??? Crafting!
Here is my card for this weeks FWF:

Papers from Echo Park, and the stamps are from the "I Adore You" set.

It is a beautiful Friday morning here in Kansas, but if the weather guy is right, it will be super hot later today, so I guess I will just have to stay home and stamp today :)
I just love these vintage fruit stamps, and have been making lots of stuff with them since I got them.
Here is a card with the vintage strawberry stamp:

And the markers I used when coloring it....

Happy Friday and TFL!

CAS cards

Again more cards for the CAS holiday challenge at SCS. Luckily some of these challenges fit perfect with cards that I can make to send to my soldier while he is away from us.  And I am finally using some stamps that I have had for a long time without ever inking them up.

Not sure where this paper is from, but I found it in my stash and love it - it is perfect for this card. The stamp is one I found in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby over a year ago, but I have not used it until now.

The stamp is from Unity "just be you" and again I had never used this one, paper is from PTI, and the ribbon is an Etsy purchase I made a long time ago.

Flags of the world CAS

Made this for a CAS flags of the world challenge, and I really like how it turned out.

CAS cards

Love making CAS cards, they usually do not take a long time to make and most of the time I really like the look of these cards.

 Made this one for the CAS July 4 challenge on SCS. The stamp is from Unity "all smiles" (June 2011 KOM).

 Again this is for a CAS challenge on SCS and the stamps are from Unity.

Again a stamp from Unity "all smiles" kit (June KOM).

Ahhh! Friday again, and time for another FWF card. I feel like this may need some sort of embellishment, like a bow or gems (I love embellishments),  but will leave it as is, since it is yet another card that I am planning to send to my hubby overseas, and I am sure that it is already too pink for him, so adding more "girly" stuff is probably not needed as far as he is concerned.

The stamps are from the ...think HAPPY thoughts kit, every single stamp in this kit is amazing, and I think that I have used most of them for something at this point.
