Missin' my Honey!

Well, Brett has been in the DR for less than 12 hours and I already miss him so much!  It is crazy how different life is without him here. :( I had to make him a card with my new goodies to let him know I am thinking about him, even though he won't even get my messages until he gets back to the states. At least he will see I was missing him while he was gone!  I used the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary for my card.
2013 Thursday Challenges-012
I used to have such a hard time cutting into brand new sheets of DSP. Not anymore!  I dug right into this pack of Quatrefancy Specialty DSP. It is so yummy!

I stamped the sentiment from Really Good Greetings on the printed window sheet in Black StazOn ink. I then found out that Framelits do not cut through window sheets! lol It made a nice etch that I was able to cut out though.  I used some strategically-placed Tombow Multi Glue to adhere it to Daffodil Delight cardstock. The ink splatters on the back are supposed to represent my tears of loneliness from missing Brett. lol They are more likely to be Janae's though because she cried herself to sleep tonight wanting to talk to him. :( She is such a Daddy's girl! 
Edited to Add: As I was finishing up my post, Brett called!  I woke Janae up to talk to him but I am sure she won't even remember in the morning. :)  I was so glad to hear that they made is safely. Now I can go to bed with a peaceful heart.
