Congratulations & Thanks!

First off, Congratulations to my oldest nephew and Godchild, Matt. He graduated last night from high school! I'm so proud of him! He has a very bright future ahead of him! CONGRATULATIONS MATT!

Next, I wanted to show you an absolutely gorgeous card that I received in the mail yesterday from my blogging friend Chris.


I sent Chris a get well card and some flowers for her to use in her crafting. She sent me this absolutely gorgeous thank you card. I love the black accents: the scallop edge and the use of the photo corners. Such a beautiful card! I love receiving beautiful cards in the mail! They just make me happy! Thanks Chris!

Well, I am SO EXCITED, because tomorrow is the day for the rubber stamp flea market that I go to twice a year. I cannot wait! I always find the coolest bargains! I'll be sure to let you know what I find!

Monday, my oldest is marching is our village's Memorial Day parade. I think it's such an honor for her school's marching band to be a part of this parade.

I might post later on Saturday to show you my goodies that I got from the flea market, or I just might post them on Tuesday. I'm probably going to take a little blog vacation for this weekend. Have a wonderful Friday, a great weekend, I'll see you on Tuesday at the latest, and thanks for stopping by!

I agree with you about Chris' card...I love the black accents, too. I'm taking a road trip out to Amish country next weekend, where there is a nice little rubber stamp store that I will drag my friend into for 30 minutes or so.

Enjoy the parade!
