Missing You

Hi Everyone!

Posting early this morning before I get the minis up for school. I actually made this card yesterday, but was a bit lazy about getting it posted. We got a new big screen TV for Christmas, and well...let's just say it is NOT helping my TV addiction! Especially right now, since the hubs is out town and I have complete control of the remote. LOL!!
This is my card for this week's Color Throwdown to use Artichoke, Baja Breeze and Cameo Coral. I actually don't have any Baja card stock; but I did manage to find some of this old SU pattern paper and I also substituted a bit of Ocean Tide from PTI. I figured it was a close enough match that I'd be ok. Now, I have to be honest and tell you that I didn't much care for the Cameo Coral with this color combo. I don't know...just didn't set well with me, which is why I used it very sparingly on the card.
This is also for Tuesday Morning Sketches this week as well. It was an easy sketch to work with, so thank you for that, Melissa!
I used OCL's "Garden Thoughts" set for this card, which brings me to the oh so good news I wanted to share with you. Guess who won herself Three OCL Stamp Sets?!! Yep, that's right...little ol' me! I won the "Blinkie" contest that they ran in Nov/Dec for their "Thankful for You" promotion. I was completely and utterly shocked! I can't wait to get my new sets and play with them, ya'll know I LOVE me some OCL stamps!!!
Ok, time to get some breakfast on the table. Have a great day, everyone!

Lovely card and that mailbox is such a beauty - I look at it wistfully often, must be getting close to the time of purchase.....
