Miss You

It's so funny, invariably, subconsciously, when my husband goes away, I land up making an "I Miss You" card or something with a sentiment along those lines!

I had coloured in another "Some Odd Girl" image the other day and today I was inspired to actually use her.  I dug out some very, very old paper, really, probably 10 years old, so I cannot tell you who it is by, but it's nice and retro and I think it looks great with my coloured image, HollyDay Gwen. I like her because although she was released as a Christmas stamp, she can be used for anything really.

Paper: notecard (Paper Studio); Neenah; patterned paper (unknown)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics; Memento Pear Tart; Shabby Shutters DI
Stamps: Some Odd Girl; Hero Arts (Envelope Pattern)
Other: stitching; gems; Sizzix Tag die

The Simon Says Stamp challenge for this week is to use sparkle and bling!  I  am not really a sparkly or lots of gem type of person, but I did do just a little on the above card with a few gems and some glossy accents on her eyes, hairclip, shoes...not much.  And this is what you could win, so I guess it's totally worth a try:

I've never done that wonky sewing but it was fun, so I may have to do it again!

Very cute!! My hubby is gone right now and I thought it was funny that I was drawn to posting a miss you card the other day. Granted...I made it a while ago but... I had plenty of others to post! :)

Lovely card Brenda. Your colouring of the HollyDay Gwen is gorgeous. Wishing the South African rugby team all the best this weekend. If they lose to Australia they are out of the World Cup.... hope not!
