For my Army Man :]

 My lovely boyfriend is in the US Army. He's currently in his AIT in Arizona, far far away. But at least now we can talk for a bit every night, unlike the 8 weeks of basic. I sent him a few cards before these, but silly me didn't take pictures of them! But here's the two most recent. He loves penguins, and requested a penguin card. So I tried my first ever tri-fold. I'd say it was a success!

The second one I just mailed. The dog (and the penguin) were from my favorite cartridge [create-a-critter, obviously] Can you tell I don't have very many cartridges yet?! haha.  I used embroidery floss, and some more $0.50 stamps.
Inside the card I added this adorable quote from a set of clear stamps from Jo-Ann's. I do appologize, I have no idea what the set was called. I just kinda threw it out when I opened them. But they are quotes from children. There's a close up of this :]
Love this stamp!
