I'm sorry to have been absent for so long. Things have been pretty busy here and sadly stamping got pushed to the side. With school upon us, I'm afraid that might happen more frequently. Wednesday is our first day back to school and my first day back to work after a wonderful summer. We are already in the swing of things with football and marching band practice. I'm so excited about attending the games this year. My oldest son, Josh will be on the Varsity team and the next oldest, Justin will be on the field playing the quints in the band half-time show. Very exciting! Go Barbs!!!

On to the card...yesterday I had a nice long chat with my sister, Kenee. She lives in Alabama and earlier this summer we enjoyed the best visit with her and her family. Her husband David just became a Captain and is launching his own charter fishing business. They have three incredibly adorable boys, Seth, Troy and Aden. My sister is an amazing young woman. She's strong willed, intelligent, beautiful, thoughtful and a wonderful wife and mother. As I hung up the phone yesterday, I realized how much I was missing her and sat down to make her a card.

Since it's been a while since I've stamped, I needed some serious inspiration so I pulled out one of my all time favorite Stampin' Up! sets, Vintage Postcard. I paired it with one of my new favorites, Priceless and some of my favorite paper, Basic Grey Infuse which I embossed with my Cuttlebug. Just received my new Paper Tray set and the "Miss you" was perfect for this card. I have to say, I love Nicole's stamps! I have several clear stamp sets, but hers are tops.

Much to do today including several errands, a trip to the grocery, laundry, cleaning, a marching band performance/potluck and a football scrimmage. I'd better get busy! Have a fantastic Friday!!!
