Military cutie!


Happy Tuesday! 

It's been a very rainy one here, but I "generally" love the rain, so it's all good for me! :)

Hope you all had a great weekend!! Rae and I headed up to Saratoga Springs for a wedding, and it was just beautiful! (okay it was beautiful but over 4 hours in the car each way was a bit much - I was ready to clock him by the time we finally got to the hotel!! Men!! .

No seriously, we really enjoyed getting away  plus it looks like there's a lot to explore around town!  We're definitely planning another little road trip sometime before the end of the summer so we can check out the sights!  If anyone has any suggestions, feel free to share!!

So look what I finally inked up!! My  Hero stamp set from The Greeting Farm.  Could you just flip your lid over this little guy???  I wanted him for ages, but of course it was sold out within minutes I think so my grubby hands were left without.. Anyhoo, I finally found him in this awesome store!!  I had him within days, and now he's all mine!  So this is the first card I made using Ian:

 This was so much fun to make! I used a tiny piece of my Army Paper from K & CO. (gorgeous paper - very vintage!! love it!)  and I stamped the kraft cardstock with Soft Suede ink.  The little star I used for the background, as well as the sentiment are from the Hero set.  I used my trusty Walnut Ranger Distress ink (lord knows what will happen to me if they ever stop making it!!), and I colored Ian in using my Copics.

Such a cute little image, and really such a sweet way of sending some warm wishes to those fighting so hard to keep us safe.  I tend to get very emotional whenever I think of all of the amazing men and women of our military, and so I will just leave it at that.  I did however decide that I am going to be making some more of these (and others!) to send off to this wonderful organization, and if any of you have some cards laying around (HA!! don't we all??), I am sure they would love to have them too!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

    There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
    I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
    Nowadays, I feel good, I started to get real money.
    It gets down to choose a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.
