"You're In the Navy Now...."

I had so much fun working with Carolyn King's Nurse Feelgood the other day and as I was sitting at home thinking (I was SUPPOSE to be listening to my guests - I had a PartyLite candle show at my home... LOL) and I came up with turning her into a little Navy Gal. Her shirt was just perfect for the uniform!! It didn't take much to turn her hat into a "sailor's cap" either and making a tiny flag to cover the heart that is on her shirt was easy peasy! I can think of all kinds of way to alter this little "nurse". I'm sure you could too! "The Best" comes from Melanie Muenchinger's stamp set called "The Best Things in Life" and the inside's "I'm really proud of you!" came from Gina K's "Kindred Greeting for Kids". Also, I am soooooooooo in love with the new paper I ordered from The Paper Temptress and though it's hard to actually cut it up... LOL... I find I am thinking of more ways to use it. It's just gorgeous paper. I haven't yet cut my Velvet Touch paper though I can't resist running my hand over it every time I sit down at my craft table. How sick is that??? LOL I already have one thought in my head for using it though so keep watching for it. Today though, I felt it was a day to be proud. Proud of our servicemen and... personally... proud of my TWO nieces!! Yes... my nieces. The oldest one, Christina, (my namesake and godchild as well) is graduating from college in New York and receiving her Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing. AND... she got accepted to a Master's college to further her degree in writing which she is thrilled about. My other niece, Ashley, (the one who shares my daughter's birthday and whom I think gave my daughter her younger "attitude"... LOL) is graduating from High School and has been accepted at an Art Institute in Kansas City! My sister HAS to be so proud to have raised such wonderful girls. They were "my babies" and I spoiled them rotten before I had my own kids. And I admit... I still spoil them. *smile* One more thing... Gina K Designs will be releasing new stamps at the end of next week. Be sure to check out StampTV and Splitcoast Stampers for previews and her release party posts. It's a good day! Signature
