Ornament Blitz #11 and a Sneak Peek



The Rocket and To the Moon stamps are two of my favorites of the new release. When my nephew was a baby, as I rocked him to sleep I would whisper "goodnight , I love you to the moon and back" and it continued as he got older when we said goodbye. He is now turning three next week and tells me "luv you shell, moon back". It melts me everytime. Each Christmas I have bought him an ornament for his tree. I have been looking, but haven't found just exactly what I want. I had the idea to make an ornment with this chipboard letter circle thingy~ I already used the letter for his scrapbook. I sat and stared at all my A Muse Christmas stamps trying to decide which to use for the ornament. DOH!! The Rocket and To the Moon to the rescue. I also added the globe stamp. The back is the new A Muse 4 bar polka dot notecard with the globe stamped on it. I forgot to take a picture and it's too dark now, so I will add it later today.
Don't forget to check this post for a chance to win!

Awww, that is so sweet . . . don't know if it is my age getting me or PMS--but now I have tears in my eyes while I attempt to type this (lol). Your story is so touching, and now you have made it a wonderful memory keepsake with the ornament. Great idea!! :) Kelly

There's a book my kids have about a hare and a baby hare who share 'I love you's. The book ends my saying I love you to the moon and back. the book is called 'Guess How Much I Love You' by Sam McBratney. It's a fairly popular book.
