Just Sittin' Here.........Missin' You!!!


As you know, my honey-pie is in Calgary working. He has been gone for a week and a half now.....and we miss him!! sniff, sniff! Over the weekend, Emileigh and I were able to talk to him on MSN. My laptop, which he has with him in Calgary, has a built in camera and microphone and we have a camera on our end too. So we were able to see each other and we could hear him and of course we were typing back and forth. We had a couple of long sessions and it was so much fun!! Then while I was at work yesterday, he called to check in and let me know that he will be flying home on Friday night!!! Yaaaay!!

So I made this card with him in mind and emailed it to him yesterday!! My good friend Donna loaned me this Whipper Snapper stamp and I stamped it on watercolour paper and coloured him in with my SU markers. Now I orginally started out with some Basic Grey designer paper for this card, but after colouring it and playing with the layout, I decided to nix the dp. I think it looks much better without it!

I used Chocolate Chip for the square card base and layered on Almost Amethyst and also used So Saffron for matting. I used my cosmetic sponge and CC ink to 'dirty it up' and distress the edges......hmmm....I seem to like things dirty don't I??? *giggle* I used my wide CC grosgrain ribbon and some Prima Flowers and also some Making Memories flowers and silver brads. The sentiment is made using my Karen Foster Snap Stamps but I know there is a matching sentiment from Whipper Snapper that says the same thing. I miss my honey!!

Now don't forget to join in this week's challenge and get 'dirty' too!!!

I'm sure your hubby misses you and your daughter just as much as you miss him. Kind of makes us appreciate those we love, just a tad more, when we see what life is like when they are not right beside us. Love your card...it's perfect!
