Wishing You Were Here

Well, I finally addressed the Christmas cards that need to be sent by mail and put them in the little box at work.  Lucky for me, they are all localso they should arrive before Christmas.  Most of my cards are given to co-workers and family/friends who I see on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  Except for this one.  You'll notice that my card doesn't have a Holiday Greeting.  This is because I knew that I wouldn't be able to send it out on time.  It is for my very best friend in the whole wide world, like since we were 10 years old, Kelly. 
She lives in Southern Ontario, and isn't going to be home for Christmas this year. It's made me very sad, as she is the one person that I always look forward to seeing, and so do my kids.  So, enough talk, here is my card.  

The layout is from Sketch Saturday #79.  At first I thought it would be a difficult one to work with, but now I see this card everwhere I look!  So, you may see the layout turn up again.  I used a lot of different stamps on this one, so check out the listing below for all the details.

Todays Question:  Cat or Dog?   LOL!  Funny question, I know.  If given the option, I'd say neither, but that's not the question, so I say Cat.  Very little work, really, and I don't have to clean up after it.  Just empty the box into a bag, tie and toss.  Put out food and it eats, open blinds and sleeps in the sun.   Kids are hard enough...adding an animal to the mix would putme over the edge!  What about you?

Stamps:  MFT Essential Sentiments, Pink Cat Studios Lily Rides a Polar Bear
Paper:  Basic Grey Two Scoops, CTMH Baby Pink, Blush
Ink:  Copic Markers
Accessories:  Misc Snowball looking sticky things, Stickles, Threading Water Border Punch
