Blue Waves Birthday

Today we celebrate not just a birthday, but a bon voyage to those that I have become friends with for the last month.  Every half a year there are new rotations… it’s a never ending cycle, unless you’re one of the lucky one’s and get to stay an entire year.

I’m being sarcastic… LoL.  Seriously, it’s bitter sweet in the deployed life of a service member.  We make friends with those that we met while deployed and we build strong bonds.  Our bonds are sometimes closer than with those we are stationed with back on the motherland.

However, we never say good-bye… we say, “see you on the other side my friend.”

If you’re wondering how I made the butterfly shadow……. keep reading.

Punch out two additional butterflies with the color of your choice.  Cut one in half length wise and the second one width wise.  Then just simply glue them together, so that each side shows some slight color.  Easy Peasy.

A Week of Birthdays

We’ve had three birthdays in one week at my deployed location.  With the new crew coming in, I’ve taken the liberty of becoming the card lady.  One of the Airmen in the clinic wrote on a card, “Happy Birthday, statistics continue to show that those who have birthday’s live longer.”  I just about started laughing because I have never seen those statistics, but know it is right on!  LoL.

Last weekend I was able to have a stamping session in our day room of our dorm.  I was like a kid in a candy store.  I will begin posting more recent cards with the new products from the 2013-14 Catalog.  Have you received yours?  If not click here to get your free copy today!

Being deployed sometimes has it’s moments.  The other day my allergies were getting the best of me… my eyes were itchy, my nose was running faster than me, and the sun was so bright – I had to return to my room to get my sunglasses.  Funny thing is, when I walked into my room, I put my hat down on my desk as I grabbed my sunglasses.  Don’t ask me why I did that… I was probably in a hurry.

Anyway, I ran back to my office and went right back to work.  Around lunch time I began searching for my hat, if you know anything about wearing a military uniform, our hats must be worn at all times when we are outside.  So, after spending 10 minutes looking for it, someone suggested I go back to my room.  How dumb do you think I felt finding my hat in my room!?  I busted out with laughter and I know this is a moment I will never forget… LoL.

With this story, I had to share this card made for a friend of mine who was promoted to the rank of Captain.  I used the Feels Good stamp set, which you can also use to bring a little sunshine to those you love with these “feel good” sayings.

Until the Next Post…
