Miss You Still!!!

I know, you must be wondering what's the matter with me posting so many "I Miss You" cards.  Well, actually, this is one of the most popular types of cards required by OWH for our service men to send back home to their loved ones, so I do find myself wanting to make these the most.

Paper: Hero Arts Notecard; Neenah; My Mind's Eye
Ink: PTI Aqua Mist; Versafine
Stamps: PTI; Paper Smooches (sentiment)
Other: MFT Flower die; Dimensional squares; PTI frame die

Extremely CAS!  I really wanted to use that flower.  I actually made the flower first from some paper scraps that were lying around my table, then it took me over an hour to decide what to do with the flower!  OVER AN HOUR to come up with this very, very CAS design!  I know you must be laughing!  I am too!

We should be heading back to Houston tonight and then I will spend the week trying to catch up on all your blogs!  I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

An hour and so worth it, Brenda! CAS isn't always quick. ;)

Sheila said it very well! I also appreciate that you enlightened me about the need for Miss You cards. Sometimes we only tend to think in holidays and not every day. LOVE the flower but think it's PERFECT on this CAS card!

Great CAS design... and you are right... sometimes simple can be hard to design.

Very cool card. I think OWH is awesome and that you send cards for their cause. :)

It's really a perfect design to say something as meaningful as these two words! I love the font on this sentiment!

Yes, Brenda - the more simple the design, the more perfect it needs to be. And this is - perfect! Love the colors and the simple design. Safe travels.
