Someday Soon?

First off, let me say welcome to the {ippity} blog hop! Make sure you start at the {ippity} blog for a list of the participants.

Second, on to my post for the hop. As many of my regular readers know I am single, never been married, no kids, etc. In fact, to be honest, it's been a while since I have dated anyone (which I hate to admit). I have very HIGH standards (thanks to my parents, especially my dad) and will not settle for less than God's best for me. Now, because of that Valentine's Day is not my favorite holiday. I don't mind seeing others in love- but it reminds me of what I DON'T have and normally I don't make any Valentine's cards (although I did make some for my students last year). However, as my regular readers have seen recently I have made some and they have been some of my favorite cards. I keep posting that I am putting them in a "Someday Soon" box. The idea for this box came from the song, "Someday Soon" by Francesca Battistelli (click the link to read the lyrics). I finally decided that with my recent {ippity} purchase that I was going to put together this box because the two {ippity} sets I have are perfect for it!

I know that was long but thanks for hanging in there with me- and here is my box!

Side One
I used snap stamps to make the "Someday Soon"

Side 3 (opposite of side 1)

Recipe:
