Missing You Today!

Hi everyone, the girls and I had a lovely weekend with Andy home.  He's back in Winnipeg now, and he won't be home until the end of February :-(

I am sharing a card that I made for hubby a week or so ago, but I couldn't share it with you until I knew he had received it.  It's a bit silly but there is a reason for the penguins and how appropriate they are. Hubby has his own website called Chilled SQL and he has a little mascot on there called Chilly - here he is.

So, when I was making this card, I made the penguin smaller in the background and a blue scarf to represent Andy, and then the one in front is me :-)  Told you it was silly.

The penguins are from the Silhouette store and they were just what I was looking for.

I tore some white paper to give it that rough edge to look like hills and then ran them through my Cuttlebug with the Devine Swirls folder.  I then inked the edges to make it look like mountains of cold snow.

The sentiment stamp was from the $1.50 bucket at Michaels, grabbed it as soon as I saw it, as this is probably going to get used quite a bit.  I popped the sentiment and the penguins to make them stand out a little.

For the inside, I just used some of the same paper and as it's so pale I didn't need to put a writing panel in, I just wrote straight on this.

So there you have it, a bit of silliness for my hubby - he did like it though and made him smile :-)

I hope you all had a great weekend, we did!  But sad to see him go back.  Never mind the time will hopefully go quickly.  Guess I'll have to make sure I get lots of crafting done.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you all have a fabulous week.

Happy crafting.

  2. I remember Chilly Willy... and NO this is not a silly card. I think its really sweet and a little sad. I love the snowy mountain effect. I don't I could manage the separation as well as you! Now get back and start crossing off the dates on the calendar.
