My husband is in the Army. A Stryker Brigade to be exact. For those of you wondering what a stryker is, its what I stamped in the card I made today. My FRG(family readiness group) learned I make cards and asked me to make some neutral baby cards to give out to the other girls in the battalion. I found this stryker stamp at a craft show on post and just had to have it. So this is what I made up as an example to show my FRG leader at todays meeting. Hopefully she likes it cause it was hard to think up a card designed around the stryker and still have it baby ordinated.

I bought two knitted stockings at Jo Anns and of course they have no names on them. So I made these two name tags for them. I used a snowflake die cut and rolled them out using chip board and green paper. Then stamped red snowflakes on them. I dabbed some white craft ink on the letters and covered them in glitter. I love glitter, its make any project so much better. Dont you just love the ridding hood ribbon??? Im going to have to order some more cause Ive been using it on everything! Thank god SU! offers more than 2 letters per letter on their chip board sheets or I wouldnt have been able to make my name in all the same style.

While I was at convention they demoed a shadow box using decor elements. The first picture is me trying to copy that and the second is a xmas version. I plan to add the super big picture of my boys that walmart gives you when you get the studio pkg. I am also going to make a Christmas countdown using decor elements as well. These were super easy to make. I got the shadow boxes at Michaels and got lucky that they were 50% off.
