7 Days of Love - Day 4: Missing You!

Hey Everyone!!

 Happy hump day! I am having just a blast doing the 7 Days of Love Challenge with my amazingly talented and uber awesome friend Jen Shults! Its been so much fun getting to make love cards as we countdown to Valentine's Day and to see what Jen has up on her blog each day! We both have also created sketches and color inspirations for this challenge that we gave each other :) and for today's Love card, I decided to use my Color Inspiration that is on  the left here for my card today. 

For today's card I decided to make a love card for a really good friend of mine who lives far away - So I decided to make a missing you card by using the You Are Here stamp set and cutting out where I live using the Heart Stacklets and to this I attached the sentiment: "missing you" - kind of like sending her my love from where I am and telling her how much I miss her friendship!

I stamped the image of the US and then cut out the midwest where I live with the Heart Stacklets and then created a layer of mats and added some white gel faux stitching around the edges. 

I loved coloring in all the states in different shades of gray and then adding a pop of pink and a heart! I added a little bit of bling on the corner and then rounded all the edges before adhering everything down - I love how this turned out and I love that I had time to fiddle and play around with this idea that I have had for awhile! Here is another look at my card:
Card Ingredients:
Stamps: You are Here stamp set by Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Love Letter inks
Papers: Simple Stories, Salt Water Taffy (TE), Lollipop (TE), Poppy Seed (TE)
Accessories: Heart Stackelts TE, Banner Stacklets 1 (TE), copics, foam dimensional, Best Glue Ever, Pink Bling

I had so much craft therapy making this card and can't wait to send this to my friend! Please hop over to Jen's blog to see what pure amazingness she has created for today's Love card!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please hop over tomorrow for Day 5  of the the 7 Days of Love festivities!!!

Big hugs!
