Wish You Were Here....

I made this card for my mom and step-dad who are in Florida enjoying the non-freezing weather up here!

Oh, did I sound a tad bit envious? Well, I am.

I would love to get out of these sub-zero temperatures--but not just yet!

Because.....yay!! we are looking after little Jake for 10 days !! whoop! whoop! whoop! I get to play with a baby again!! (she said singing and clapping!!)

His mommy and daddy have gone to Hawaii to celebrate their 5 year anniversary!! I know, I know......but Jared travels so much that he has soooo many air miles and so they can fly for free and stay in a Holiday Inn for free - so why not!?

Now this card is a direct case of this card on AmyR's site Prairie Paper and Ink. I think her card is the last one BEFORE Amy started doing her sketches for people to try.

You should go over and cruise her site if you never have before. You will be in for a great surprise!! It really is fantastic---it is the first blog that I ever looked at-because she has soooo many Stamping Bella cards - honest to goodness - I spent day and night on that site for days!

The stamp set is CC Designs Little Penguins and I bought it on All That Scraps.

I coloured him/her in with my copics and of course spruced up the balloons with my Sakura glitter pen - I LUV that pen! I have a copic glitter pen too, but I like to give my pens fair time each! You know....

The cute little design paper is from daisy d's Maybe Baby Valentine Paper - so sweet and full of soft colours - I LOVE it!! I bought it from Jacksonbelle Embellishments, that and a few other things....

I added a Prima flower, as Amy did, but I added a Stamping Bella pearl bauble to the middle. Ribbon is offray from Walmart.

The sentiment is from a new set I just got from My Favorite Things called Essentials Sentiments. It is so cool and it has tons of sayings like "Cool Beans" - perfect for a coffee card, and "Hey Sexy" - I've seen that one on a Grumpabella card!! Perfect for that!!

Well, I hope I did this card justice! I think it turned out great!

It is late and off to bed I must go, for Jake is sure to wake up early in the morning and be a little out of sorts, so I will have to spoil him SILLY!!!......I am so LUCKY!!

Don't forget about my blog candy! Leave a message on this post and I will be picking a number/drawing a name on Sunday and announcing the winner on Monday


  1. Hiya Bonnie,
    This is so cute! I love that little penguin and what you did with him! Love all the added details.
    You are going to have so much fun playing with your grandbaby.
    Yes, I did survive the play date, but just barely! Hee hee!
    As for the "make my day" award. I just right clicked the image and saved it to my picture file and then uploaded it just like any other picture only making sure to check my small setting. That's pretty much it. Pretty easy! If you have any questions you can email me at the address listed on my blog! Have a great day and enjoy that grandbaby!
