Stamping, Crafting, Creating


Thursday, November 18, 2010


I wish I could be "hidden" right now! But Hidden is the name of this image. This image is from The Stamping Boutique's Enchatment line I am in love with pretty much anything with wings, especially fairies, angels, pixies and such so this line is sooooooo me!
I made this card for a one of my Paper Princess Sisters'. We did a little gift exchange and this is what I sent her with her gifts. I was very proud of this card and I did it while sitting in the middle of an empty room on the floor after the movers came and took all our stuff :(

Looks like fun huh??!!!
We are still in TLF on base. My husband did not pass his PT test on Tues. he should have, he could have but the stress and negative thinking got the best of him so we are still waiting. Now it's up to the wing commander to decide our future with the military if there will be any!
So....we will be spending Thanksgiving here but have made plans to spend it with some friends here which is just fine with us. We have gotten used to the military being our family so this is no different then any other holiday for us except we were SUPPOSE to be spending the holiday with our family this year.

OH OH OH.....How could I forget...have you noticed my new blog layout? It's great isn't it? I am surrounded by some really fabulous people in my life and my BF Kelly did this for fact I have dubbed her my blog designer because she knows alllllll the in's and out's of this stuff she even know's what all that jibberish letters and numbers and symbols Thank You Kelly!

You are so welcome for being your "blog designer" ... I am glad I can do something for you while there are so many miles between us that can make you smile for just a brief second when you are so down ... I love you with all of my heart ... I am so thankful everyday that we put all old stuff behind us and have started a "new friendship" and taken it to a new level ... I am so honored to call you my best friend April ...
