We interrupt this holiday for the DCM Dare!

This week I, (Lythan) want you to commiserate with me as I miss my daughter, off all weekend on a school trip. So the theme is
Miss you
Make a card that shares your love with someone - it could be missing you, thinking of you, across the miles - just let you imagination take flight, as the wonderful design team have! I look forward to whiling away my lonely hours by visiting your blogs!

I knew I wouldn't use a card that said 'Miss You', so decided to go for 'Thinking of you'. I felt like making a digi-hybrid card, although I think it probably took me longer than if I'd just hit my stash pile!

Digi Kit is the 'For Melissa' collaboration by the Scrapbookgraphics DT and the stitching came from the Kit TGIF (Thank Gosh I'm Female) by Pixelgeek Designs for Scraporchard. The ribbon is real all the rest are digi elements printed and cut out, font is CK Ali's handwriting.

I think I must have 'fish brains' today, I also want to acknowledge the sketch I used for the card, it is sketch 11 from Kathy's Waffle Sketch File.


  1. That's lovely Janice. I love those hearts dangling on the greeting.

  2. Beautiful card! I love the images especially at the bottom. So pretty! I remember when my daughter moved from home and missing a child is no fun! I commiserate and understand!

    Found your blog over at Daring Cardmakers Challenge.
