Just Popping In!

Hi Everybody!
Just dropping in really quickly today for a super short post because i'm off to maryland in about an hour for a fun long weekend! this weekend's agenda includes a red sox game at camden yards (!yay!), a sightseeing trip to dc, hopefully we'll make it to the spy museum (fun!), and then on saturday we're heading to richmond for a fantastic dinner and then we're seeing beauty and the beast and the landmark theater!!! (so excited about that! i've been wanting to see the broadway production of beauty and the beast for years!)

so anyways - thanks to everyone this week for such wonderfully sweet comments! i had a couple of questions about different things this week and i'll be sending out answer emails sunday night or monday when i get back home :)

today's card is for my dad's birthday and the hero arts contest for this month!
(you can find all of the contest details here)

i loved the wrapping paper i picked up at hallmark and really wanted to carry the design into the card so i was getting ready to just draw myself a plaid design with some markers and a ruler when i decided somewhere on my wall of stamps i had to own a stamp to make it easier and sure enough!

here's the front of the card and the envelope with a coordinating present!
here's just the front of the card:
and here's the inside: (i love how the inside turned out! it's kind of backwards for me - i usually stamp the pattern on the bottom, but i love how it looks on the top!)
thanks for stopping by! i'd love to know what you think!
