EBTKS #14 -Around the House Challenge

Good morning! Well today is a new EBTKS Around the House Challenge! And this week's host is Lynnette and she choose to use Envelopes! Have fun is that?! :) And the sponsor this time is Ippity Stamps from the sweet and talented Ashley N. Newell! And the stamps they are giving to the winner are SO pretty!
I made my card for my Big brother's Birthday! His name is Chris and he is one Amazing guy! My father passed away when we were all very young and my brother stepped up as he got older and became a father figure to me! He even gave me and one of my sisters away at our weddings, since we didn't have our dad! :) So I made him this card for his birthday on Wednesday. He turned 34, and I really wanted to share with him who he is to me! So I listed 5 things that I love about him using the PTI Top Ten stamps! So I stamped this little envelope with a woodgrain stamp and hid the little note inside. But yes...I will share it with ya'll too! :)

He really is ALL of these things and SO much more! I love him so much! :)
And I stamped Happy Birthday inside using the You're Dandy set from Practicing Creativity!
You can stop by the EBTKS blog for all the details on the challenge and to see all the other designers projects and you can see the stamps that are going to the winner!

I hope you all have a very Blessed weekend! I know I will, we are having a Girls (Mother & Daughter) weekend at the beach this weekend. All of my Mom's side of the family (girls) will be there! We all grew up at the beach together, so now we are going to make more great memories with our daughters! Me and Autumn are leaving around noon, (yes I am taking her out of school early)! The state TAKS tests are over, so she is getting a little break! :) And Chance and Chace are going on a Boys (Father & Son) weekend at the lake with a friend of his and his sons. So it is going to be a great weekend! We are coming back a little early, so we can make it back for church on Sunday. I know it is going to be a great church service and I don't want to miss it! So we will be home late Saturday night! So I will take lots of pics and share them later! :)
