Armadillo Birthday

Wow...what a crazy few weeks it has been! We found a home in Colorado that we are in the process of buying. We absolutely love it. We are beginning the stressful task of the loan process and it can be very tough when your hubby is a pilot in the sky! Papers can't get signed as fast as they like. So, you can imagine the stress it puts on me when the bank wants something they should have sent us 2 days ago (when he was home) and they want it now. We managed to get through this week and get all the contract paperwork signed and delivered. Now we have to wait for them to sign and deliver to our bank to start the loan processing. As they take their good ole time...interest rates rise. So, that doesn't make us too happy. And Monday is a holiday. So, we will start all over on Tuesday and pray they have signed and delivered or we will start dealing with timeline issues for closing. What a nightmare but I hear it's the norm these days so we just have to accept it and pray for the best outcome.
So, this is a card I made a few weeks ago while I had time and knew it needed to get done. It's the cutest stamp and perfect for the recipient! It's a Dead Beat Designs stamp and it's colored with Copics. It is framed with a Nestie and distressed around the edges. I added a snip of twine to jazz it up a bit. The paper is a bandanna print and I couldn't tell you who makes it. I used my Home Pro to attach the stars in the corners - too cute!
I'm not sure how many more postings I will be doing before I close shop until after the move. I don't think I will be packing until Mid-March but time will tell. I will not have any desks for awhile after we move - until my hubby can make them for me. So, life will be at a standstill for awhile but I promise I will be back so hang in there!
