Time for a Side Note

Before I get into the creative stuff (super exciting!) I have to take a little side note and let you know how my Prince is doing.  Besides dodging sand storms he is doing great.  He's working long days but this makes the time go faster.  He has a few friends with him called his Battle Buddies.  These two Battle Buddies are two little animals that Brandon and Lexi gave Russ to help protect him.  It's been fun to see what the two Battle Buddies get into.  Here are a few updated pics of my Prince:

Russ said this use to be a place long ago where they really hit golf balls.  This doesn't happen anymore but the clubs are still there.  The funny thing is that Russ is not what I call a golfer.  He can hit a golf ball, sometimes. *grin*

You can see the battle buddies are hanging out on the sand bags.  The funniest part of this picture is the Mountain Dew can in the bottom of the pic.  I can see that Russ is still able to get one of his favorite things… Mountain Dew.  The kids LOVE seeing the Battle Buddies go to all the different places.  They are really sneaky!

 

On another Side Note…

 

Oh boy!  I pulled something out of my Stampin' Box (AKA- my Traveling Stamp Room) yesterday that I completely fell in love with. I totally forgot that I ordered it and Mom and I had a stamp fest last night.  In fact, we had a little mini workshop too! In my Stampin' Box I found the Beau Chateau Side Notes.  You can find these on page 190 in the Idea Book & Catalog.  If you like the Vintage/Shabby Chic look, these are for YOU!

Here is what I made using the Beau Chateau Notes:

Along with the Beau Chateau Side Notes I used the beautiful Creative Elements stamp set (122647).  I used the Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight inks to stamp and used the Gold Smooch Spritz for a little accent spray.  You can also see where I used the Spritzer Tool with a Marina Mist Marker on the card.  One little Antique Brad just added a little more vintage to the card.  Always remember to stamp your envelope, it's always a show stopper for the Mailman!

Hope you are making plans for a great weekend.
