STINKIN' SWEET AND A FACT A DAY

Here it is, Monday again - where does the time go?? This weekend flew by! So, I have a couple of things to share with you today. One, by bloggin' friend Angel from Angelosity has extended a fun challenge to us bloggers. She is reporting a fact a day about herself for 100 days and at the end of the 100 days, those facts will be put together in a scrapbook page that we will all share with each other. How cool is that??!! I am totally going to do this - I think it is a great thing to be able to share facts about yourself and think of what a wonderful page you will have for your family when you are done! So, are you in?? Get over there and let her know and me know so we can all check out each others posted facts! So, here is my first one.
FACT #1
I have lived in three different foreign countries (Germany, Scotland, and Italy) and eight different states(Hawaii, Virginia, Maryland, Maine, Florida, California, New Jersey, and Washington DC(not a state but a place)) in my lifetime because my dad was a career Navy officer and so was I.
Okay, who's next??!! Come on - this will be fun!
So, on to my card. I used my other favorite new stamp set Pun Fun - it has the cutest little images and sayings! For this card, I used the little skunk because it is sooo cute and fun to color too! This card is actually for a friend of mine and is already in the mail but I wanted to share it. I hope you like it! Recipe is at the bottom! Have a great day!
Card Recipe: (all supplies SU!)
Paper - Brocade Blue, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Stamp Sets - Pun Fun, Stitched Exotics (background flower)

What a wonderful idea about the Fact A Day! I would try, but I don't think I could come up with 100 facts. Your card is so sweet. I love it. TFS.

What a FUN card! I'm ordering this set at club this coming month! I can't wait to play!

You sure did move alot! We've only been to 4 different states, although he's been in 14 years. It's hard to say where my kids are from though....I usually settle on where they were born! Part of being in the military I guess!

Have a great day Alex!!! {SMILES}
