I am THINKING OF YOU and I am MISSING YOU


I NEVER thought this card would pull off! Most people who know me, know that I:
#1) I am a huge Texas Longhorns fan... okay so that is a given.
#2) I Always okay, NEVER match.
#3) I am addicted to Bombshell Stamps and lastly
#4) I RARELY ever give my cards "themes" or "sentiments". This is true! So when Jan asked me to make a "Thinking of You" card. I was like "yay, I was asked to make a card for OWH Stars and Stamps!! Oh man, I have to actually use a sentiment!!!" Oh man!!!
This card OBVIOUSLY does not match. But I love it. :) Now that I look at it, I like the effect the turquoise and the pink have for one another.

I used Recollections paper (Butterfly Wings Collection for the PINK and Cape Cod for the Turquoise.) Just in case you wanted to know.

Stamps... well STAMP used is the mini flower from Bombshell Stamps "Bombshell" set. I never have used it as the main focus of anything, and I felt it would be perfect for "Thinking of You". I used Versafine Onyx Black ink, and Bic Mark-its for the detail work of the inside of each flower, and detail around the computer generated sentiment.

Missing You.... Kid's Edition:


Lena is borrowing my Big Shot as her's needs to be fixed. I got these Sizzix die cuts from the Mike's clearance bins one day this past fall. I have never used them... I figured I NEED to try something new for the new year, so this is what I did. I made TWO Missing You Easel Cards :)

Paper is all Recollections except for the patterned paper, and the dresses, shoes, and head bands as the come from the Latte Collection of I cant remember the brand right now. But I got them in a little pad on sale, (it comes in several different sizes!)  at Jo-Ann's!

I need to get the Sizzix rub on faces for when I make the paper dolls... I am AWFUL at drawing faces. And my handwriting is even worse.... check out the HANDWRITTEN sentiment.

I am addicted to these little paper doll girls. I see more of them in my future! I hope they find a GREAT home.

Your cards are great! I love the colours and layout of the first one, and that flower stamp makes a fabulous bg. The missing you cards are just adorable, and I think your faces and handwritten sentiment look great.

I actually really like the pink version, which amazes me, as I DO NOT do pink,LOl. Seriously, I love it- which proves we should go outside our box sometimes!
