WSC52 & Dutch Dare Missing You



Here is another card that shows how much I am missing my family in CA - I think I will send it to my oldest sister Val. I will always remember how sad she is when I am about to head to the airport after a visit (long or short). Tears just stream down her face every time. I know it may be harder on her that I am not around, because we lived together alone without our mom for a year after she died and it was real lonely for her after. But now she has her complete family to fill many voids in her life. I still ache because of the separation.
This card is for Beate's Weekend Sketch 52 (that's a WHOLE YEAR of them!) and it is also for the Dutch Dare Card Challenge Blog #1 (use Pink) that my buddy Monika M.A.D. Stamper shared, I just had to use one of the sweet Magnolia images she sent me in my birthday card recently. Thanks, Monika - you are so thoughtful and it was FUN to color with my prismacolor pencils & oms. The designer paper (dp) I used is from Basic Grey Sultry. Love those pinks & browns!

this is awesome...love how the image comes out of the box...

I am so touched by your comments too---what a special bond you and your sister have. All of my family is in PA so I know what you mean. My mom, actually, cries so much when I leave every summer...

I feel that we live such parallel lines...my sis and I are as close peas and carrots (to quote Forest Gump) and the furthest we've lived from each other was an hour when I moved to SF to go to college there.

Huge hugs friend and I know your sis will love this amazingly beautiful card!

Oh, Val will adore this sweet creation, Donna! I know what you mean, I'm always so sad after I leave my family to go back home too. You must be so close with your fam and that is a true blessing, however it does sometimes feel unbearable, sniff! Anyhoo this card is gorgeous, your coloring is superb! I love how you made her little basket popping off the main panel! Perfect dp, so pretty! Wonderful work!
