Missing You

Morning everyone!

You know the best thing about working Good Friday??? I get to have today off instead! A nice peaceful day off alone in my craft room ~bliss~
I've blasted around with the hoover, hung the washing out and instructed our solicitor to start the conveyancing procedure on our new house. It's amazing how much I can get done in so little time when OH has gone to work!

Today's card is another one my dad requested. His Auntie who lives in Australia has been over here in the UK visiting family for the last couple of months and is due to go back in the next week or so. Dad is going to her going-away party at the weekend and needs a card.

So here it is:

This stamp is fast becoming over-used! This is the third time I've used it this year! I knew I wanted to go with the theme "Missing You" and it seemed to be the most appropriate stamp I have. (That must mean I need more stamps -yes?)

Ingredients used:

Stamp- Penny Black "Squeeze 'til I Squeak"
Cardstock- Papermania
Colouring Medium- Promarkers
Papers- Echo Park Springtime
Sentiment- Computer Generated
Ribbon- Anitas
Punches & Dies- X-cut, Woodware, Nellie Snellen & Marianne Creatables

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft Challenges - 187 Spring is in the air
Penny Black @ Allsorts - April Challenge- Oh So Cute
I Love Promarkers - 111 Springtime
Simon Says Stamp - Use your favourite tool- Bigshot
