missing you.

It's lawnscaping time! This one is a sketch challenge:


I kept this one simple:

missing you...

It makes me smile, and I hope it does for you too!  I went back to my very first lawn fawn stamp set (!) and created this little scene.

missing you...

The sketch shows a cloud in the corner, but I wanted to do something a little different.... apparently, I couldn't completely veer from the cloud shape, though!  I picked the thought bubble from "a birdie told me."

missing you...

The sentiment was printed.  I love creating custom sentiments - it's a great way to get a fresh use out of older stamp sets :)

I hope you play along!  We're being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this time!


ps, I just got back from a little trip to Texas, to visit a sweet friend.  It's the first time I've ever been away from the kids for longer than the time it takes to birth another one, hee hee.  I was slightly worried that they would be nonchalant about my return, the way they usually are for their daddy when he comes home from a business trip.... but being greeted at the gate with flowers and bouncing kids who won't stop coming in for kisses is pretty nice.  Maybe absence really does make the heart grow fonder (aaaaaaaand, just like that, I've tied it back into my card.  You like? hee.)
