Missing my daughter

 Just a quick post today.  My daughter, boyfriend and Elmo the boston terrier moved to Vancouver 9 months ago for school and work.  Although we FaceTime every night, we do miss each other and they will be visiting in a couple of weeks, YAY!  Not Elmo though.  He will be with a sitter.  This little guy is so smart, snuggly and silly and when I saw that Simon Says Stamp had a boston terrier stamp set and die (Simon is the family dog over at SSS) I knew I would be getting this in my first order from them.  That order arrived yesterday and yesterday's Monday Challenge over at SSS is to use exclusive SSS items.  So here I go with the SSS new mosaic heart stencil that I water coloured with 3 shades of Tim Holtz distress inks and our little Elmo is die cut, stamped and coloured and headed their way.  I hope the card arrives before they leave to come here!  The inside is stamped with "missing you like crazy".  Easy Peasy.  I love this new mosaic heart and it will be a go to stencil I think!
Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Chriss

  4. Such a darling card!
    My daughter has a Boston Terrier too. They live quite far away, but whenever they come, the sweet little dog always acts like he's missed me so much. It's adorable. Thank you for sharing your card with us this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I've so enjoyed visiting your blog. ~Michelle
