Hello There!

Hello There

Today's card is dedicated to my friends and family whom I would like to say, "Hello there!"  I'm thinking of you and I miss you very much.  This is the perfect stamp set to reach out and 'touch someone'.

Deployments now a days are not as harsh as years ago when it comes to communication with our loved one's.  Now a days technology has made it possible to continue working on my blog while deployed.

If you have a smart phone you can even make calls home using a variety of apps like Magic Jack, Viber, Tango, and Skype.  I know there are more, but they are too many to mention.

Of course, this is assuming the base has great WIFI.  I am considered one of the lucky one's.  Work schedules and so many other variables exist, so it's still a little unpredictable.  More often it is difficult to have a normal conversation.

But, that's deployment life and although my plans include lots of stamping, I miss my craft room at home.

Hello There

I have this 'thing' for old fashioned phones.  I am building up a collection of them.  I shop for them in antique stores and I can't wait to get the one I really want… an old fashioned dial antique similar to the stamp.  That was my whole reason for buying this stamp set the moment I saw it.  The big wheel bicycle is also in the set.  You can see it here.

Card Sketch Challenge

At the last moment I decided to enter my card in The Paper Players Challenge #159.  I've never joined them before, so I figured why not… I have nothing to lose.


Get yours today and get a head start on your Christmas cards!
