I miss you, that is all.

Happy Saturday!  I have a simple little card to share today, a card I made for 2 challenges, MFT Sketch Challenge #243 and CAS(E) this Sketch #138.

My card uses My Favorite Thing's Penguins in Paradise stamp set.  I paper pieced the penguins swim trunks, aren't they adorable?  All of the patterned papers are from Basic Grey's Lauderdale 6X6 pad, and the slide die is from PTI.  I added some glossy accents to the ice cream bar, and some sequins to finish my card.  Of course this is for Connor who's away at college.  My plan is to send him a card each week to let him know how much I miss him.  We text all the time so I know he knows that already, but I think the cards will be something extra he'll appreciate.  So different from the olden days when I was growing up when snail mail was all there was other than a phone call, which was expensive back then!  The times they have changed ;)

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
