Where have I been, you ask?

Well, you're right, I haven't posted in a couple of days!
You know it's bad when your email is dinging like crazy with friends checking
to be sure you're okay!  
Thank you all for checking on me!

Here's what I've been up to!

Our daughter's in-laws are hosting a party for our dear daughter, and son-in-law this weekend.
As you may recall, they were married the first weekend in Feb. of 2012, and he deployed the last weekend for 9 months.  He's back safe and sound (yippee!), and this is a reception for them.
On the menu are various wonderful sandwiches, side dishes, and of course, cupcakes!
Yum...did I mention cupcakes?
I've been making some little cupcake flags, and food placecards, and thought that I'd share them with you!

These are what the placecards look like...

Here are the flags - front says something 'sweet', and back has the couple's name.
Thanks to my great friend, Shirley for coming over this morning to help me finish these up! The 'sticking' goes so much faster when I have someone to jabber with!
Here are all 108 Flags, and 10 Place Cards.
I have to give a huge shout-out to Laurie Wilson, at Doodle Pantry, who helped me so much, but taking my 'random thoughts', and translating them to the beautiful computer files that you see here! Even the dotted cardstock is printed from files that she designed.  If ever you need something like this, Laurie is your go-to gal!  She's talented, quick, and patient!  Thanks, Laurie!

Thanks for stopping by today!

OOPS!  Nearly forgot!
Don't forget - you still have 15 days to take part in the Great Impressions Stamps Sketch Challenge!  As of earlier today, there are only SIX entries!  Now, I'm not a math major, but that sounds like pretty dandy odds!  

You need not use GI stamps, but if you have them and use them, you are entered twice in the drawing!  A randomly drawn winner will get to shop at the Great Impressions Stamps Store for $20 worth of yumminess!!!  AND....you can apply to be a Guest Designer!  Check out the blog for details...

You have been busy and love the results. Glad your son-in-lay is safely home! I also love that you used the word 'jabber' in your post. I haven't heard that word for so long it made me smile to read it. It's a good word...
hugs
