I'm lying for Papertrey ink goodies...

LOL!!! I am going to clarify myself, don't worry. First off, how is everyone's Monday going? I hope it is better than mine. What a way to start a short week, huh? Let's see...this morning I did NOT want to get out of bed. It has been raining here for about a week. I don't mind the rain but after a while it gets so depressing. I am so tired, I have no idea why. My hubby and I actually went to bed earlier than normal last night and I am still drained.

But I do get out of bed, go take a shower while the hubby is still home to watch my boys and bam...I feel so sick to my stomach. I thought maybe it was because I may have gotten soap in my mouth but I still feel icky some 3 hours later. So, it is Monday, I feel sick, it is raining outside so my boys can't go outside to get some energy out. That means they are stuck inside destroying my house and driving me beyond crazy, gotta love Mondays.

But onto why I "lied" again on this blog. I mentioned on Friday that I had some awesome goodies I wanted to show you because I just LOVED how it turned out. But I am so wrapped up in the PTI giveaways on Nichole Heady's blog that I am going to wait on that and show you something for a cool giveaway.

Nichole has introduced a new product they are starting up and a new stamp set she has created. To enter to win all you have to do is go to her blog and comment about your best friend anything and everything. For an extra chance to win you can make a friendship card and post a link to it on her blog as well.

What do you win for all your effort? Two sets of her stamps and two of the new kits that she has introduced. Why two? To send one to your friend and one to keep. How cool is that?

I am going to start off by saying, I have never really had a BFF. A really good friend that I turned to for anything and everything. I am good at making friends just not GOOD let's do everything together kinda friends. I am more of a homebody and like spending time with my family.

So right now my BEST friend is my husband. There really isn't anything I keep from him. He understands everything about me. He may not always like it but he understands. He supports me in my efforts and builds me up when I need it. I truly couldn't have asked for someone better to be my life partner and one day my eternal companion. I love him with all my heart.

BUT for this particular project I chose to make a card for my younger sister. We have gotten really close. I think almost dying together can make that happen.

She would be the first person I run to for advice or kind words or whatever I may need. I remember staying up til the wee hours of the morning laying in bed talking to her in the dark. We would talk about boys, once we even snuck some into our house. We understand each other. We may not always agree on things but we know that it will happen and choose to agree to disagree. I don't know what I would do without her.

So, here is the card I made for her. Now, if I had been thinking about it when I made this card I would have made it green because that is her favorite color but I grabbed this piece I had in my stash and went with it. And of course, when talking about friends what stamp set do you use? Well, if you are me you grab "Floral Frenzy". If you haven't noticed I just LOVE that set.

Now, I have no idea what the rest of the anniversary/birthday celebrations PTI will be hosting from now until the 15th release but you better believe I will be participating.

I just realized that my family and I will be going out of town on the 13th and won't be back til the wee hours of the night on the 14th so those two days I shouldn't have anything to show you but that could change.

We are made the decision that we are taking the long 4 day weekend (gotta love the military life for some things) and taking our boys to Sea World. None of us have been so it should be a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

That is a great card Missy! I have to tell husband is now and will always be my best friend. Doesn't mean that I don't like being around my girlfriends but my husband is definitely my best friend. HUGS and have a great time away! :o)
