I have been a bit absent from blogging for a bit, but for good reason. Some of you know that my husband just got back from his 3rd combat tour to Iraq, so we've been spending time together as a family. It's been such a wonderful blessing to have him home so much earlier than we anticipated. Thank you to all that have prayed.
I do, amongst all the excitement, have something to share. I came across this adorable little Cuppie stamp set from Taylored Expressions called Crafty Cuppie, and just could not resist! I decided to make myself another sketch journal, because you just can't have enough of those.I had so much fun making that one, that I decided to make my bff, Christi, a Cuppie journal too!
Along with the journal, I sent her this little card. . .too fun, right?! I received word that she liked her little Cuppie surprise, which delighted me to no end ;D
And this last card is just because I'm having a ton of fun stamping that cute little cupcake at the craft table.
