Link Up Love Party with Getting Cricky Kristal Andrew

It's that time of the month once again...  the link up love party is a way to get to know each other and find new blog inspiration.  I can't tell you how many wonderful ladies I met by participating in last months link up party.  To join in go see Mrs. Andrew by clicking ---> Getting Cricky, Kristal Andrew  
Kristal ALWAYS has something wonderful to say to bring a smile to your face.  She is so full of inspiration and I just love her stamps and projects that she shares.  Yes she has her own line of stamps that you have got to see.  I myself haven't had the opportunity or the honor to own a set yet, but once I get settled into our new home I will be getting my hands on them.  Money is super tight right now so as frugal as I am I'm really having to tighten that budget some more which brings me to what I am thankful for...

My HUSBAND and KIDS.... my husband knows just how much I love to make cards and such for not just my family and friends, but more so for me.  By making my cards and sharing them I feel... what is the word I am looking for... complete... no, I dunno it's in my head tumbling around with the rest of the buttons... I just know I am at peace when I am working on cards because my heart and soul goes into them.  My Husband knowing that we are saving to put towards our move still allows me to get paper and glue and actually hands me the keys and kicks me out of the house to go get it.  My boys, my goodness... they are growing up so fast.  My oldest just graduated from Kindergarten and will be starting first grade next year!  I was that Mom that took the camera on the first day of school... to EVERY function and to the last day of school and of which NONE of them I had a dry eye.  I appreciate and value every minute I have with my boys because they help me grow not only as a parent but as a person.  I am thankful for these wonderful people because they inspire me to be the best.  I love you Logan, Austin and David!

Okay now that I've just about blurred my vision with tears just thinking about how thankful I am for my family I will post my most recent favorite card I made.  I made this card for a dear friend's Husband.... I *ahem* hurt his feelings unintentionally so I made this card for him, I still have not heard back from him, but at least I know I tried ;0)

Now it's your turn to get to the Party... be sure to link up and have fun!!

Charlotte said...

Oh my goodness, when i looked at your card, I fell out laughing! It is so cute and funny. I know after reading your post that it is probably not so funny to you. But it is such a cleaver way to convey your thoughts. Surely you will hear from him about this card.

Thank you so much for the kind comments you made on my blog. Yes, I am a huge fan of the men and women in our military. It is just a lifestyle for me. My dad is a disable vet from WW!!. You can read about him on my blog and his father's day card. He and all of his brothers were US Marines. Or as I should say, are US Marines. My daddy like all Marines says "Once a Marine,always a Marine". His oldest brother received the Congressional Medal of Honor from the Korean War. His son, my cousin is in the US Army Reserve. He volunteered to go to Afghanistan two years ago. He said that after what his uncles and father went through, it was the least he could do. He is stateside now but wants to go back. I think he is nuts to say that . But I do admire him. Please thank your husband for me for all he does for us on a daily basis. And a big thank you goes to you as well. You too are making sacrifices daily for our country. There can never be enough said to thank our troops and their families. I am a new follower of your and so proud to be one.
