When I was a "young thing," newly married to an airman, I remember how lonely it would be when he was assigned overseas near a war zone. I wrote a letter every day saying how much I missed him. I made this card with other service men and women in mind for our challenge this week at The Perfect Sentiment. I chose the wings of a plane for the card I'll send to Operation Write Home.
I used sketch #73 at Sketchbook Saturday:
I used two different embossing folders from The Paper Studio, stars for the tag behind the plane and hearts on the middle band. The sentiment is from a set called "4 My Friend" that I got this year from Close To My Heart. I really like using this paper with vintage foreign stamps to express the idea that "I miss you." I'll have to make another one of these to slip in my hubby's baggage when he travels on business. He knows I always miss him, but he loves that surprise. Luckily, he doesn't read my blog!
Please join us at The Perfect Sentiment with your own card!
