I {heart} You

Here is another card from my Kraft paper collection and yes, I am still using that American Crafts paper too. I even went back to Mike's and picked up more plus the coordinating papers too. Looks like I'll be getting creative this weekend! I have really been wanting to do some scrapbooking lately....thanks to that Wendy Smedly book. BTW, did you see that she commented on my blog? I feel like a Rock Star just popped in for a visit and I had a mild brush with fame. Ha Ha. Hopefully, I'll get a real face to face with her at CHA. Wendy...come see me at the JustRite booth!

Here is a close up of the sentiment I{heart}You that I made with my JustRite Large Monogram Stamper. I used my Times New Roman font and added a heart that was punched with my green Marvy heart punch. I used Brillance red ink for the border {which by the way goes so well with this paper} and the center I colored with the SU Tempting Turquoise marker. Again, I added my new favorite celery satin ribbon. I am totally addicted to that ribbon that I picked up at Mike's.

So who is going to be the lucky recipient of this card? My son Cody will get it while he is in Texas for five weeks! He is going to visit my brother and while he is gone I plan to write to him every day like I used to do for Bill while he was on deployment. One time I wrote 193 letter to Bill....that was before the email era. Gosh that makes me sound so OLD!

When I was a young Navy wife we didn't have email and we had to write real handwritten letters. Sometimes it took 30 days for the letter to get to him and sometimes they would arrive out of order and then the stories in my letters didn't make sense. So I numbered all my letters so he could sit at mail call and put all his letters in order before he would open them. Just a little useless info to share with all of you. LOL

See ya on the blog!

Ahhhhh numbered letters. What a lost art that is! Funny thing now is that I am the OLD Navy wife, and not many wives around I talk to understand the old numbered letters! Thanks for the blast from the past! (Darrells first cruise I got up to 326 letters..... one a day!) I still think nothing beats a handwritten note! Love you! Amy
