World Cardmaking Day

In the South, they say you can say anything about a person as long as it's prefaced by "Bless his heart!"
Well, my husband... "Bless his heart!" supports my stamping addiction completely (for the most part anyway).
When I mentioned to him that yesterday was "World Card Making Day" he made the typical nods and grunts that would be expected of a man. ;)
Later, referring to yesterday, he called it first, "World Federation Stamping Day," then, "National Scrapbook Stamping Day," and then, "City, County, National, World Federation Stamping, Scrapping, Card Making Day."

What a joker.

When I woke up, there was a card waiting on my desk for me... made by him, with scrap paper from my trash can. I couldn't believe it.

DH: I made it for you! For National World Card Making Day!

Me: Wow! That's great!

DH: (Big Grin)

Me: How many tools did you use?

DH: Four!

Me: Four?! Really? Which four?

DH: Scissors, my thumb nail to score like you use that Scor-Pal thingy, Scotch tape, and a pen!

Me: I'm so proud of you!

DH: Me, too! I got all of the paper from your trash can!

How can I not love this man? :-D

I spent a few hours making cards for deployed troops. Gina K hosted a promotion on her blog and it is very near and dear to my heart. I know this means a lot to those guys over there to receive these cards in the mail and I'm honored to participate. I created this stack of 20 Christmas cards to send out.

Cornish Heritage Farms Heart Warmers
Prism Green, Gold unknown, Georgia Pacific White
Palette Noir Black, Close To My Heart Markers, Topiary, Holiday Red, Chocolate
Handmade Envelopes

And thennn...

(Because 20 cards was not enough ya' know!)

I had to create something using this Unity stamp. I bought it weeks ago and had yet to use it. You know how that goes... HAD to have it... Anyway! I LOVE this quote! It is painted on the wall at Leilehua High School and I think it just means SO much. Really. I love it. And that paper! I cannot get enough of that paper. Basic Grey Offbeat. Seriously. I think I need a 12-step program.

Unity, Be the Change
Paper Trey Ink Dark Chocolate, Stampin' Up! Soft Sky, Georgia Pacific White, Basic Grey Offbeat
Stampin' Up! Chocolate, Stampin' Up! Blue Bayou
Bling, Circle Nestabilities, Stampin' Up! Corner Punch, Paper Piercer

And if the fact that yesterday was WORLD Card Making Day was not enough... I mean come on! Like we need an event or occasion to stamp? Teri, a local gal who helps me with my SU! addiction {wink!} , sent me this CUTE!! card, which I got yesterday.

Thank you, Teri!!

So, now it's Sunday and the kids on the island are all out of school for Fall Break for the next week and a half. YAY!!!!

I hope you're having a great day!

Thanks for visiting!
