Just a little note

yeah... well today was a hard Monday... I'm still feeling like crap!!!  Actually went to work downtown and had to come back after lunch to work from home... couldn't face going to my office... I was coughing again :( And I was exhausted.  Tomorrow is another day of meeting downtown.. don't know how I'll survive the week.  Especially since I have lots to do... I want this virus GONE already...

Anyway, my family has been inquiring a lot about me recently... and I wanted to make a little card for my dad just to tell him I'm thinking of him.  I did something quick since I wasn't feeling up to much this past weekend... I used a dictionary page that I tore and highlighted the word missing :)  To tell him I'm missing him (well it's in French and it's Ennui but that's what it means :) )

The image is from Crafty Secrets and they have a linky party for you to join in :)  If you do you get a coupon for their store!!!  Pretty neat!

I'm using their image Typewritter.  I thought it was perfect for a little masculine card :) and of course for my dictionary page.

So I kept this really really CAS...

Here's the closer look at the digi that I fussy cut and the word definition that I highlighted.

I'm pretty happy with this result!!!  Hope my dad likes it :)

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Crafty Secrets- Feb linky party
  2. Crafty bloggers network - All about boys - well it's for my dad

  6. Dream valley challenges - No designer paper - dictionary page... that's not dp :)

That's it for me!  It's off to bed I go.  Wish me luck for tomorrow!!!
