Missing You More Than Words Can Say

This week's challenge over at LILI OF THE VALLEY is "Missing You" - oh my gosh, that covers so many possibilties!  And I will be missing the STAMP SOMETHING challenge, it's their last one this week (sob, boo) and they are saying goodbye with an Anything Goes theme.

I made this card last night but by the time I had finished it was too dark to take a photo, and this morning wasn't much better - thank goodness it brightened up a bit by the time I got home from work.



Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image:  LOTV Teddy Flower
Papers: First Edition Hideaway
Colouring Medium: Distress Inks
Die: Nestabilities Rectangle Fleur de Lis
Other:  Small flower punch, pearls and gold border peel-offs

The sharp eyed LOTV fans will notice that I have masked off the butterflies from the stamp.  I just wanted Ted on his own for this one.  And oh piddle!  I've forgotten to write Missing You on his envelope (and thus the title of the post - I always do that bit after I've rambled a while).  I am a blonde underneath this dark hair you know.  Hey ho, it's been a long week. Anyhoo, here is a close up of the image


I see from the LOTV blog that they will be announcing the GDT on Monday.  From having a prowl round last week's entries I'd say my chances are slim to nil.  Oh well, there is always next time.

Thanks for popping over.
Hugs Sxx

*waves from over the pond* Poor sweet Ted, so overwrought he just couldn't cope with having "Missing You" written on his little envelope that he sabotaged your thoughts. LOL =]

As for the GDT, if they don't choose you this time, I hope we (i.e., your fans) at least provided you with sufficiently squirrelly earmuffs to wear when you next ask yourself whether you should enter a G/DT call - if you can't hear your inner critic, she can't tell you no! Happy Weekend!

Last week I gave in and ordered that nestie! Now I'm even happier that I did. This little ted is so darn cute, and of course, colored beautifully. As for the GDT, it ain't over till the fat lady sings. And as you said, if they manage to miss you this time, there's always next time. I think you do a fabulous job with their images. That's why I've fallen in love with so many of them...it's ALL YOUR FAULT! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
Have a great weekend,
Hugs,
