Welcome from Tennessee~

Hi Everybody.. I got here to Clarksville, TN last night around 7 or so.. today we spent some time driving around Ft. Campbell looking at some things that had changed since I was last here. It's super HOT here today.. the temp thing in the truck said it was 101 degrees and that was around 1:30 p.m. My husband Steve is still in Missouri ~ his leave starts on the 1st and then he's going to the U.P. of Michigan to the little town of Curtis to visit with his grandma for a week.

We are hoping to get some cards made soon.. as soon as I get to stamping (which I am wanting to do soon since it's been a while) I will post some pictures.

have a wonderful day!

4th of July Card I made a few days ago ~

Stampin UP Airbornewife Patriotic USA Well Worn Alphabet Star Punches Independence DAy

I made this Happy 4th of July card the other day after I made the other patriotic card.. I love anything Red, White and Blue and love to celebrate America's birthday on July 4th. This card was made using the scraps I had left over from the other card... I used the star cut out that was from when I punched out the other stars.. and used it asn an element for the card.

Another quick card before heading off to bed...

True Friend Stampin UP rubber stamp set airbornewife
We are moving in a week and a half and I am trying to find some card layouts/designs that I can easily pack all the supplies for so that I can make many while we are in TN on leave, to make for deployed military. This is a card that I made in a matter of minutes, so I think that I will use this design.. it is one that is in the Spring/Summer catalog.. I put the Thank U stamp on it instead of the friend one. What do you think? think that someone would like to receive this card?

Covered Notebook for Military Spouse

live your dream stampin up military spouse gift
I signed up for a special kind of swap, whereas you pack a goodie box of things to send a military spouse whose loved one is deployed. I bought a notepad and covered it with Groovy Guava paper, then embellished it with some stamped images from Live Your Dream, some dreamy Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon and some brads. I have a bunch of other things to put in the box, along with some cards I had stamped (one me and my mom stamped a few weeks ago when she was here to visit) I thought they would be nice for them to send to their loved one, friend or family.

My Father's Day card for my wonderful hubby ~

My children are so blessed to have such a wonderful Dad ~ as I am blessed to have him as my husband. He is my best friend in the whole wide world. Today we are taking it easy because we kinda got sunburned yesterday ~ even after spraying ourselves several times with the sunscreen ~ the kids are at Grandma & Grandpa's house (Hi Everybody!!) so we are just taking it easy. I made this card to give to my golf loving husband ~ he would golf every day if it was possible.. I used some of the colors that are soon to retire.

Fore Stampin UP golf airbornewife

The stamp set is Fore, a retired Stampin' UP! stamp set. I used River Rock for the Base, Western Sky for the Designer Series Paper, Blue Bayou ink and card stock, Soft Sky for the square under the Happy Father's Day tag ~ after I stamped the saying, I punched the tag out once.. then glued a tiny strip of card stock to the back of the tag and put it back in the punch the other way and punched it again to get the corners all punched off the same ~ then layered it on the square. Nothing fancy.. but it has a golf theme, so I knew he'd love it.

KWerner Color Inspiration #11 ~ what a fun color combo!!

I probably wouldn't pick these colors for a card, but they sure where fun to work with.. I am pretty tired so I wasn't sure what was going to come out in the mix.. but I like it and will add it to my stash to send to a deployed service member. Please remember them and their families each day and thank a Veteran for their service.

Okay... here's my card!!

What do you think?? I hope everybody has a wonderful weekend ~ me and my hubby are going to take the boat and head to Lake of the Ozarks to Bagnell Dam for some fishing tomorrow. This will be our last time to go fishing while we are here in Missouri... less than two weeks and we'll be on our way to Tennessee for some much needed and deserved leave time and then onto North Carolina.

Card inspired by one in SU magazine

Stampin Up Free & The Brave Independence Day Well Worn Alphabet Eagle Patriotic America USA
Ah... I love anything Patriotic.. and as soon as I seen the July issue of Stampin' Success this morning online and seen the piece that they had in the Artwork section.. I stopped right then to print it off so that I could make something along the same lines.. perfect card to send to troops. Since we are moving soon, I am going to figure out what all I need and make an extra order to get all the supplies I don't have and take it with me while we are on leave and make many, many cards for troops ~ what do you think?? Thank you to whoever it was at SU that came up with the original idea.. I had to change a few things because I didn't either have it, or because I needed to make this on a smaller scale to fit on a card.. they used chipboard for the star in the original one ~ the finished piece was 5x7 size as well.

Couple of Cards I made for graduation thank you's

Today I made time to get cards finished up, put in envelopes, addressed, stamped and in the mail.. thank you's for my daughter's graduation gifts. I wanted to do them last week and never could get time to do them.. nor could I find my desk, it was buried under a massive pile of stuff.. it's cleared off now and I did find time a few days ago to stamp and to stamp last night.. I stamped some images and colored them but didn't do anything with them just yet.. The turquoise card was one that I made when my mom was visiting..

thanks for looking and reading ~ Pam

*ps. I have mover's coming tomorrow for a walk through.. it's getting closer and closer to the time when we depart Missouri and embark on our new destination of Fort Bragg, North Carolina ~ Carolina, I'm heading home!

Casing a card because I really liked it! Live Your Dream

stampin up live your dream rubber stamp set airbornewife
I seen a card on Cindy Haffner's blog a week or so ago and just loved it.. I need to make some thank you cards and have been so bogged down with getting ready for the yard sale that was today and doing my ebay listings, that I didn't have much creative spirit in me.. after a long day of the yard sale.. er.. well about 5 1/2 hrs.. we got up at 5 and started setting up.. by 6:15 I looked up and there was four cars in a caravan coming down the street, parked in front of my house and hopped out to come shopping.. we did VERY good and had about 15 large tables.. 6 were 8ft. tables and the rest were 6 footers.. they were all full and we had some boxes and tubs full sitting in front of them.. by 10 we were down to four tables.. that was all .. we were nickel and diming it by then so we said enough! my face was red, I was sunburned and worn out. we packed up what little we had left and took it to a local charity.

I did manage to get the card stamped and made that was all inspired by Cindy's card on her blog:

I am off to bed now.. I am worn out from the heat and we are going on a canoe float trip tomorrow down the Big Piney here on Fort Leonard Wood.

Happy Stamping everybody!
