Howdy, everybody! I’m blogging from the road today as we’re starting our road trip for (what I hope is our final) cross-country move. Before I get to my card post, I just wanted to update you on things happening in my personal life.
After close to 9 years of being an Army Wife and moving from Louisiana (where I’m from) to northern New York to Georgia to Washington and now to northern Virginia, I’m SO ready to settle in and finally have a crafty space all to myself! Scott recently departed the Army after 16 years of service, and we’re relocating so he can start his civilian job.
The hardest part of every move has been that I’ve had to say goodbye to friends I’ve made. It’s especially hard this time, because I got to know so many super-cool and creative ladies while I’ve been here. It’s not so much a goodbye this time as it is a “see you later”…but that doesn’t make it any easier!
Anyway, *sniff* on to my post for today…the masculine half of the sketch over at “Seize the Birthday“!
Here’s my card! I used one of my favorite guy images, “Turntable Josh” by Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps:
