Blossoming Friendship


I ordered this stamp (Blossoming Friendship) a while back from HM Stamps and I’m barely using it now! I’m turning into a stamp slacker. Way back when, when a new stamp arrived at my house I had a card made with it by the end of the night. Now it takes me forever to use them. Speaking of House Mouse… I had to share before July is over… what a great honor to have Dick from HM Stamps picked one of my cards for his Card of the Month. He has his monthly picks displayed on his site, you can check them out here “HMStamps Card of the Month”.

I made this thank you card for my sister. A couple weeks ago was my birthday and she gave me a gift card to JoAnn’s (she knows me well). I also received a beautiful Harley Davidson leather jacket from Bryan and the kiddos (I had my eye on that jacket for a while). Back to stamping… Since my sister loves kitties I knew she would enjoy this card. I used Diamond Stickles on all the blossoms and the finished card size is 5 ½ x 5 ½.

Bryan and I went riding last week and this weekend just around the neighbor hood. On one of our rides Bryan took me out east (Judge Orr Rd, Peyton Hwy & Falcon Hwy) I got my bike up to 55 mph and that was an exciting experience. It was the first time that I’ve ever been out of 3rd gear! Then we went on one of the busiest roads near us (Hwy 24 & Woodmen)… I was so nervous, when I was turning onto Hwy 24 there was a slight incline and bike kept wanting to roll back… duh I wasn’t in first, it was in neutral… imagine my embarrassment! When we made it home my cheeks were tingling from them flappin in the wind. I wore a helmet, but that day I wore a half helmet instead of my full face one.

This evening I followed Bryan over to the gas station. I’ve never been around so many moving cars in such a small area on my bike… my stomach was in knots. Once again we went riding though the neighborhood. At one time Bryan and I got separated, he turned I went straight. Apparently we both waited for each other at stop signs… LOL. After waiting for a bit I drove on and came home. A short time later Bryan was calling me wondering where I was at! I’m sure it’s really boring for Bryan to ride with me through the neighborhood. I’m thankful that he does, at least until I get more confident in my driving. I’m so proud of myself… this evening I actually parked my bike in the garage all by myself. Usually I leave it parked in the street at the end of the driveway and then Bryan pulls it in for me. Maybe it was a good thing that Bryan and I got separated or my bike would have been sitting in the street when he came home!

I received some new stamps in the mail yesterday, I have them mounted and ready to go… shhh I can’t share just yet what those stamps are, but soon (wink)! I better get creating!
