Miss You in Lavender

Most people look forward to weekends. I mean, why not? There's no work (at least not the 9-to-5 variety), and you are free to fill your days with whatever you enjoy. And a THREE-DAY WEEKEND is even better! Happy Fourth of July weekend! How are you celebrating our freedom, country, etc.?

I chose to share this "I miss you" card with you today because I am actually going out of town for the 4th. We go to the beach with Drew's family almost every Fourth of July. And I am actually typing this for you on the laptop riding in the car. :) I feel so high-tech (haha!).
I used a Lavender Moon (PTI) base and stamped the flower centers from the All About You set (also PTI) to make some polka dots. I layered on a white piece of cardstock containing the flower row from the same stamp set. I stamped in black and opted to only color the leaves with my Koh-i-noor pencils. I "colored" the centers of the flowers with Lavender Moon buttons. I stamped "I miss you" in black ink on a strip of New Leaf Bitty Dot patterned paper and attached a Lavender Moon bow to the paper strip. Can you see that I was playing with my recent PTI order? :)
Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Don't forget to shop our **CLEARANCE** section at Limelight Papercrafts!!

This is so pretty and love the colors. Enjoy your 4th at the beach! We are having a party at our place with friends, family, and neighbors. It's a lot of work and took away from my stamping this week :(, but it worth it. So I keep telling myself.

Love this Mandy! Great design, colors and love the buttons in the center of the flowers. It just makes me smile! Have to say I used the Turquoise Petite Embroidered trim....oh my goodness it is so pretty and perfect with my Webster's! Will be ordering more for sure! Have a wonderful time with family and celebrating the 4th of July! Blessings!!!!
