Just Saying Hello!

We are getting ready to go camping for a few nights!  Yahoo!  I can't wait to get away and do something different.  We have had a lot happen to us in the past few weeks.  The most frustrating thing was that we had TONS of rain.  I would dare the worst day, there was at least 3-4in. in one hour.  It was CRAZY!  My back and front yards were completely under water.  Well, as you know, all that water has to go somewhere, and it did, my basement to be exact!  We ended up with over a foot of water in my basement.  When you have a 90+ year old house, the basement is not exactly water tight.  So I lost a lot of things.  I never dreamed of it flooding that bad, but then again I never would have thought it would have rained that much too.  Craziness!
Anyways, I made this card for a special young man.  He is my niece's boyfriend.  They have been together for over 3 years.  He just graduated HS, and she has 2 more years of HS to go.  Anyways, he has been in basic training for the Air Force since the first week of July.  He has become very special to us, and not just because he is my niece's boyfriend, but also because, my husband and I are also the youth leaders in our church, and he has been in our little youth group for the last year.  So we have blessed to get to know him really well in the past year.  Anyways, he has been very much in our prayers as he has been away.  We are looking forward to him graduating, and just being able to communicate with us all and how it all went.  We have all greatly missed him, too!  We know that it is so important to write letters, while he is there and even once he is complete and then moves on to where ever he may get stationed at.  So I wrote him a letter and made him this card, just letting him know of our excitement as of lately! So this is what I came up with for him.

I used:
Stampin' Up! Feeling Sentimental stamp set
DCWV The Natural Stack
Clockworks embossing folder
Black and white Twine
Stamped Sentiment is from Hobby Lobby

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a day
filled with many blessings!
