New Digi Vintage Paper Sets and Remember our Soldiers

Hi Happy Sunday,

I hope everyone has had a great week!

Today I'm so excited to announce a new product that will be making its way to all of my shops. I'm starting a new line of digi papers. Each set contains six sheets of digi paper. One sheet contains the primary pattern and the other 5 sheets are complimentary to the main sheet.

At the moment, I have 3 sets ready to go and they'll be posted in the shops very soon. One set is very girly - Roses and Violets, one set is for babies - Teddy Bears and Rattles and the last set is Christmasy - Poinsettia's and Snowflakes.

My digi papers are all inspired from my Vintage Greeting Card Collection. Of course Photo Shop was my favorite friend (smile) while I was creating these wonderful papers.

Take a peak at them by clicking on the below image and let me know what you think!

Poinsettia and Snowflakes

Be sure and visit one of my shops, listed over there on the right, the digi papers will be showing up soon.

My youngest son gave 5 1/2 years of his precious young life to the Marines. He spent a lot of time in Iraq and Afghanistan and thankfully he came home safe and in one piece.

As the end of his tour approached, we anxiously waited for the news that he was on his way home. If you’ve had someone close to you in the service and deployed you probably know that their movement is kind of hush hush. They can’t give you specific information about their return to the states, just round abouts.

Well, I’ll never forget the day when I received an email from him with an attachment Ozzy’s song “Momma I’m coming home”. Needless to say, I cried buckets and silly me I still cry buckets every time I hear the song. Isn't he just a most handsome devil!

With Vertern’s Day just over and Christmas coming it’s time to remember our troops and if possible participate in one of the community Troop Christmas projects. Locally there’s a project to collect Christmas Cards and other goodies to send to them. So I thought I’d include a vintage image in today’s post just in case anyone would like to create a special card and participate in their community project.

That’s all for now… Hope you have a great week that’s full of smiles!

  3. Dear Peggy,

    Hugs, Candy

  4. Eeeek! Too CUTE girlie! Oh and by cute I mean.....your son, that yummy paper and that oh so adorable image! WOW! THANKS for sharing your wonderful creations with us! HUGS!

  5. The story about your son's song for you was sooo sweet!! I'm going to think about you both every time I hear it :) And what a cutie he is! You must be so proud.
    Your digital papers are so cute! A visit to your store is in my very near future ;)
    And thank you for the puppy dog image!

  6. Okay, so now I've got tears in my eyes from that lovely story but I think I can continue. What a sweet boy! (Man) LOVE the new papers! So perfect with your images! I'm following now so I don't miss a thing! Hugs, D

  7. You should be so proud of your handsome son! I'm so glad that he is home safe and sound. Please thank him for me for his brave service. We can never repay him for it. Best, Curt

  8. So glad that your son is home and you can relax a bit now. Thank you for the cute Christmas Cheer image. Our Church usually goes to the Veteran's hospital every Thanksgiving and Christmas and we provide the holiday meal and serve it but this year we are not aloud to do that because of the flu problem so we have been asked to donate new packages of tube socks for them and make 200 Thank you note cards for them. Your image will be perfect for that. I was going to make 50 cards to donate. If this is something you won't allow to be done with your image, please let me know and I will not use your image, but if it is, Thanks for the great easy to put together idea for me.

  9. Hi Peggy,
    I was reading your post on your son who is in the Marines who had did a tour in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    I know how you feel I have a son who is currently in Iraq. Not too much detail can be given to loved ones in the states. Now that the holidays are here, I cried when I heard the song I'll be home for christmas by Bing Crosby. My son is not coming home for Christmas, but he tells me he misses home. Your son is handsome. I just wanted to let you know its not silly to cry over a song everytime you hear it. Your not alone.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment.
