We made it to Texas and all your positive thoughts helped because Kat was an absolute angel even with an extra 5 hours layover in Houston after they ran over our plane with the baggage truck!?!? But that is a story for another day...LOL!
I am posting real quick because this is the last week of the SketchThisCards three-week challenge and I needed to post my card for this week.
One of my favorite things about Midland (besides my wonderful family) is a fantastic little stamp store which I hit shortly after arriving. This card features some of my new stamps as well as some old Foofala papers. :) I changed my design slightly from the sketch and made the lower right flower element more of a background piece with the damask stamp. I have loved participating in this challenge and hope to use more of Janelle's sketches soon. If you haven't checked out the blog, I urge you to do so.
For our friends and family that keep up with these things, Ben received orders from the Air Force this week. Come next June, we will be moving to Scott AFB in St. Louis, Illinois. This has been moved back from our original move date of December because Ben will be deploying for 120 days starting in January. That is definitely a better move date so that Jacob can finish out the school year although it isn't going to be fun to spend the spring without Ben. I also have to figure out how I am going to keep Kat out of the craft/scrapbook/stamp side of her bedroom all throughout the spring as she is learning to crawl and walk. We were planning to be in a 4 bedroom by the time that she got to that...it should be fun! LOL!!!
We are still going to be in Texas for the next week, so I will probably be scarce around the net, but I will be back in a week!
