He Went To Jareds!

Okay, I know I've been a bad, bad, bad blogger and I appologize for that. Life has been kind of busy with TC back, which I did kind of predict. But that doesn't mean I haven't been stamping, because I have! I've been pouring out the swaps lately. I will be sharing these with you in the upcoming days. You read it, I said days! I'm going to try my darndest to keep up with my blog again.

Anyways, as you can tell from my title, we're engaged! He proposed last Sunday and did actually go to Jareds. Of course I said yes. There aren't any details available yet as we are not sure about the timing, but we do hope to be married by the time he leaves again. Yes, he's leaving again for Afghanistan this time in May. Here is a picture of the ring, not a very good one, but I think you can get the idea. It's a solitaire stone and then there are four smaller stones set in the ring on each side, that matches the wedding ring.

Okay, now on to the stamping. Here is the first card I'm going to share with you. I made this for a one on one swap and the theme was Black and White. I used the Stripes, Fine Flourish and With All My Heart stamp sets, the Daisy die and matchbox die for the tags. The courdoroy brad in the center of the flower is actually a Kraft brad that I colored with my Stamp and Write marker to make black.

Congratulations. I found you while I was doing the blog finds (which by the way your card will be listed on MAR 6). I have been a military spouse for the past 17 years. It can be tough, but it can definitely be worth it! My hubby goes on his 6th deployment to the sand box this summer. Good luck and enjoy your time together!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! How exciting to get engaged and married so quickly. I wish you and yours lots of luck. My daughter has a friend that is in the military and now stationed in Alaska after doing three tours in Irag. Keep us posted and I wish you lots of luck in your life together! It's fun...we just celebrated our 30th Anniversary on March 1st.
