Miss You.....

Good morning everyone...Hope you all had a great week-end.  I went to LOTV on Saturday for a colouring class, really had a great time, and it is practice makes perfect now lol!! The promarkers still don't feel quiet right but I am going to keep trying them lol!!  Dawny P was a fantastic teacher and had lots of patience:).  Now on to my card for this week, we were sent some lovely images to have a play with from Julie at "Ladies That Craft" and this was my's called "Washing Line"...when I first saw it, I thought of using it as a "Missing You" card, as there is only clothing for one on the line, or maybe a "New Home" card...I think this image has lots of potential, don't you, like fairies and goblins etc lol!! You must pop over to "Make it Monday #113" linky party, and check out my teamies cards...WOW!! they are amazing!! I have used some of my new dies that I got from Which Craft show last week...The flower is a Sweet William by Cheery Lyn, and the olive leaves are also Cheery Lyn, arn't they fantastic..and my lovely flower border is a Memory Box die, isn't it gorgeous...

  39. Miss You Cards- the perfect way to tell someone special that you miss them. Say I Miss You through these miss you cards.

  40. Those are fabulous, outstanding miss you card. As we know that how fast time is running and the distance is going to increase and this is also a fact that we don't have time to meet a person and see him/his off. But there is a card facility whereby we don't need to go here and there. Just order it and sent it to that person whom you want to say "miss you".
