Play Along: Artiste & Peachy Keen Stamps

Good morning! Lots of good things going on this week in my world.... Let's see... It's Valentine's Day, so Happy Valentine's Day to you!..... My daddy is getting to go home from the hospital today after having emergency gallbladder surgery..... We are getting close to the weekend and my husband's running event. It's the Make My Day 12K Trail Run. And then later that day we are going to the annual RV Show at the Fairgrounds. That's always a tonage of funnage. Oh, and I finished Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse #4) by Charlaine Harris this week and started on Dead as a Door Nail (Sookie Stackhouse #5) yesterday.

I love these books! I'm reading them on my NOOK. :)

Today I'm going to show you the last card for my PLAY ALONG Card Set with Gift Box. Tomorrow I'll be showing you the envelopes I made with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and a box to put them all in.

You can pre-order the Envie Punch Board from Theresa, The Scrapbooking Queen at her Facebook store... HERE.
