Peanut Butter and Bananas! It must be Elvis!

Some of you know that my husband David is the Director of Youth Ministries for our Church District. He returned on Wednesday from a big Youth Pastors Retreat that he hosted in New York. Well, one of the many things that he brought back home from this wonderful excursion was bananas! yep, you read that correctly, bananas! He prepares the food for the retreat and there just happened to be an abundance of fruit left, so he brought some home for us. Now some of us here in the house happen to have a real thing about peanut butter and banana sandwiches. oh yeah, baby....... nothing says lovin' like a big thick gooey sandwich oozing over with yummy-licious nanners and nutter butters! so we have been in hog heaven here at home!

so in honor of these time tested goodies, I am posting one of my Christmas Elvis cards. Trivia time for those of you who don't know that Elvis LOVED peanut butter and banana sandwiches! yep, I'm also a big Elvis fan! :) These stamps come from the ever rockin' Cornish Heritage Farms, the only company officially licensed to create and sell Elvis rubber stamps. The vintage buttons and lace are from Etsy. The entire image is sponged with gold ink to give it a shimmer and shine. Papers are from Basic Grey Stella Ruby. Hope that you enjoy! Thank you, thank you very much..........

Did you know that Elvis's PB and banana sandwiches were fried in butter! Like a grilled cheese-at least that's what they tell you at Graceland!
