Wish You Were Here


I'm back, after a bit of a vacation that just kept getting extended! My original plan was to visit my parents in Surfside Beach, SC from Saturday (2/28) until Wednesday (3/4), and I scheduled some posts for then. Well, the weather was so yucky at the outset and it was becoming increasingly more beautiful as the week went on that we just extended a bit. Meredith was really having a great time with my parents and Judy that we just decided to stay through the weekend. Swimming every day (indoors of course) and a couple of trips to the actual beach punctuated a very successful daddyless vacation. We missed him of course and on Saturday it was finally time to come home! Meredith kept saying "I miss Daddy!" This sad little bear reminded me of that sentiment, so this little card is dedicated to her!



Some upcoming news! Paper Makeup Stamps (more affectionately known as PMS) is having a party this Sunday, March 15th!! You don't want to miss it...they will be having a fun blog hop, surprises, and the announcement of the design team. If you haven't heard of them by now, you have to hurry over to Katie's site and check them out...absolutely adorable and so affordable!

I had fun with this card, and I was able to combine two challenges: Mojo Monday #77 (sketch challenge) and Paper Makeups' PMSeb1 (an embellishment challenge) Hopefully, the challenges really will help with my mojo!! It was nice to get my fingers inky tonight!

Here are my card details:

Paper: DCWV designer paper, Close to Cocoa and Choc. Chip by SU
Ink: Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black by Memento
