  8. Nic, I love the look of the ivory embossing powder on the vintage look. Much softer and feminine. Very nice - very nice.

    I wondered how you would do with your son away for a couple of days. So glad he is back home safe and sound with lots of hugs.

  39. Glad he is home - I know how much I missed mine when they were younger and left for a trip (actually now that they have moved off I miss them just as much but I just block it out of my mine and don't think about it). Your card is really pretty. Love the image and your flowers are super gorgeous. Hugz!

  45. A fabulous vintage card, Nic, absolutely beautiful! It's so hard when our kids go away for the first time, I also didn't sleep much when they were gone! But if he came home muddy, he obviously had a brilliant time!!

    Also, thanks for joining in at The Squirrel and the Fox!
