Cards TO Camp

My son attended Boy Scout leadership camp immediately after school got out, and because of the type of camp it was we had NO communication with him the entire week. I was able to send a couple of cards, though, to let him know we hadn't forgotten him!
Because it was leadership camp I wanted to let him know how proud I am of him -- he really WILL do amazing things!

The inside says "D'oh, I already do!"

As soon as he got home from camp we were able to get the dog we promised him once we bought a house. So Peaches joined our family this month.

She's got some Golden Retriever, a bit of Shar Pei and possibly some lab in her -- the sweetest of breeds all in one incredibly sweet 7 month old. She's going to be a pretty big dog in the next 18 months or so. She's really smart (too smart??) and we are working on training her (and us), especially since she may have been bullied and so is a bit dog aggressive.

I was also able to whip up a couple of cards this weekend using my AMuse Studio supplies. One a very overdue thank you for an order and the other a thank you for a Scout that did the swim checks for the troop so they can swim at summer camp. The paper is from a Boy Scout scrapbooking pad, and I cut the lifesaver on my Cricut, with a little Thank You from Essential Sentiments in Cherry.

I love the new Mermaid color -- in ink and paper, both. The Modern Zinnia stamp set is also so versatile, and I LOVE the Thank You Mix set -- the inside of this card says "So very much"


 I am so excited about the July spotlight -- with its beachy theme AND the ribbon sale!

Until then -- Happy stamping!
