It's a big day around here! Sweet Sketch Wednesday 193

 
Hello Friends! Today is a big day at our house. First, our daughter gets to attend her first friend Birthday Party. She is super excited! And I am so excited for her to have been invited. (there is a long back story there, I will spare you the details) The second reason today is a big day is that my Dear Husband is returning from a 9 month tour to Afghanistan TONIGHT!! Yes, Tonight! We are all super excited! I have missed his handsome face.
Anyway ...
Since my card making has slowed to the pace of molasses, my card stash has diminished, and I needed to make a card for today's party. I took my inspiration from my favorite challenge blog, Sweet Sketch Wednesday and ran with it. This one is sketch #193, which was super fun to work on! I found the hardest part, for me was to get that triangle right! I dont have a triangle die so I had to wing it...
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! Your comments really do make my day and bring a smile to my face.
I thought I would share my daughter's cute little message to her friend that she wrote inside the card. She is 5, in Pre-K and is doing pretty great with her writing! I helped her with the spelling...

It's darling, and so is Anna's message! For not having crafted in a while, you sure didn't skip a beat here. Your card is wonderful. I'll bet Anna will love giving it :D. Enjoy the homecoming...you all deserve it!
