Miss You!

I was inspired by my lovely friend Aimes with this card.  She made the sweetest little card for her boyfriend Chris and thought she might slip it into his lunch box one day (awwww).  My hubby Chris is jetting off to France for a skiing holiday in a few hours (assuming his flight out of Liverpool isn’t cancelled) and so I thought I’d take Aimes’ lead and slip a little card into his suitcase for him to find when he gets there.  I just got this gorgeous little stamp set – Darling Dots (Level 1 hostess gift from Stampin Up) and thought the heart would be perfect.  I have used three of my favourite Papertrey Ink inks – Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy and Spring Moss and matched it with scraps of card I had lying around.  I used my circle nesties for the, erm, circles!  The sentiment is also from PTI (Mega mixed messages) and the little flourish is from a magazine freebie set from ages ago.
Right better go and make sure he’s packed enough clean pants and socks.  Knowing him all he’s got are his ski boots and some gloves!!

Hugs,
