Miss You!

Hi everyone.  Hope your week is going well.

We had a wonderful family weekend, with Andy being home.  It was great to get some cuddle time and family time.  We had a movie night on Saturday night and watched the film "Man of Steel".  It was quite a good film, although I don't think that anyone could really ever replace Christopher Reeve as Superman.

I have a quick card to share with you today.  Andy went back to Winnipeg yesterday and I made this card to hide in his suitcase.  It's a little silly, but hey I like it :-)

The image is a digital stamp from Bugaboo Stamps called Hogs and Kisses.  I did my own sentiment though, just writing it out on a banner, which I have inked and added a brad to.

The image was coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers and they are listed below.

Spectrum Noir markers used were
Pig     PP1, PP2
Pigs trotters     FS8
Heart     D3  

Isn't she cute :-)

The piggy image is cut out using a Spellbinders Labels 8 die and I inked around the edges of all the layers with CTMH Chocolate ink.

For the inside I used the Spellbinders labels 8 die again, as well as the same papers from the front. The little heart is from an InkaDinkaDo set.

And there you have it - a quick card for hubby to discover in his suitcase.  By the way, he liked it when he found it last night :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
