Missing Hubs!

I had to make a birthday card for one of the neighbor kids who helps hubs out when he needs some inventory moved. I wasn't able to get it made before leaving Maryland, and so I had to send it from California.  Now I couldn't possibly send just a birthday card to hubs to give away. I had to make one for him too, to let him know I missed him and was thinking of him.  Kinda like our courting days, when I sent him greeting cards. 

I was clearing out some 12X12 scrapbook papers to donate to a local school, and I came across this map paper.  I decided it would make an excellent card for hubs, while we were apart.  I used the wonderful new to me Navy Shadow Ink by Hero Arts, ohhh  this color is soooo inviting.  I also used the Pale Tomato. These colors are just so yummy.  The arrow and the hearts are Studio Calico wood veneer pieces which I tapped onto the ink pads to give them color, they turned out great! My sentiment is from Hero Arts. The map paper is from Hot of the Press. Have a great day, thanks for stopping by.
