I Miss You

With all the technology we have these days, its easy to just shoot a text, email or even "see" someone via Skype or Facetime.  I really feel like we've lost the art of writing letters and sending cards to each other with all of our advancements.  But I don't know about you, I still love getting happy mail or a little note from someone just to tell me they were thinking of me. :)  Just makes my whole day!!  I made this card with that in mind!

I used a new set *well for me anyway* called Making A List from MFT and I just love it!  Of course, it features my little favorite PI girl and some adorable sentiments to match!  I used the current MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch as inspiration and tweaked it to make it my own.

I colored her in Copics and added some polka dots to the top of her dress using a Sharpie Poster Paint marker in White.  There is a hint of sparkle from some XMas Red Stickles on the heart bow in her head.  The paper line is from Recollections called With Love and I threw in some American Crafts red and white twine.  All of the papers are distressed in Studio G chalk ink in Pink.  I cut out the hearts on my Cricut Expression and put some pop dots in between them for some pop and added the sentiment from the set on there- love the effect!

Hoping you have a fabulous day ahead of you! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
