Merry Christmas, everyone!

I wasn’t planning on doing a post today – but then we exchanged gifts and I HAD to come by and share a gift that I received from Andrew.

First – the backstory (there’s always a backstory, right?)

In May of this year, I made a Facebook status update linking to Wedding Nouveau’s article about a wonderul Etsy shop that creates the cutest multi-ethnic quilted creations. I saw them – and fell in love. I fawned over them for about a week then kind of forgot about them.

Fast forward to Christmas Day 2011 when I opened up my gifts and found this:

Excitement comes pretty easily for me so I can’t even begin to describe how happy I was when I got this pillow! I. ABSOLUTELY. LOVE. IT!
Apparently, Andrew bought the pillow back in May, after I posted it on Facebook and has been hiding it from me ever since!
I think the girl pretty much looks like me…I’ve been known to put a flower in my hair from time to time. And the boy – well – minus the psychedelic turtleneck, is pretty much dead ringer for Andrew.
I mean, seriously…how adorable is this pillow!!!!
So – as if this wasn’t good enough, there’s more…
Now for backstory number 2:
I am always telling Andrew that he should try stamping. Last Christmas he stamped a card using some old Stampin’ Up rubber mounted stamps that I had laying around, but the results were..um…well..ya know.
This year, unbeknownst to me, Andrew tried his hand at stamping! 
I can’t for the life of me figure out when he made this little note card or how he knew to use my acrylic stamps, but he did and I couldn’t be more impressed or happy with his clean and simple Christmas notecard!
He even monogrammed the back of the card!!! Too cute!!!
Moral of the story: I am marrying the sweetest, cutest, greatest guy ever!
Supplies for Andrew’s card:
Stamps: PTI (Communique Curves, Fresh Alphabet)
Ink: Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black), Impress Fresh Ink (Mango, Grass, Red Currant)
Cardstock: PTI (White)

  1. Amber, what a sweetie you have there. Lovely pillow with a cute Amber and Andrew on it. I guess Andrews must have cleaned up real well ater using your stamps and ink if you never knew. Merry Christmas to the both of you.
