Miss You, Friend

It's hard for me to put away these Flip Flop Dies. They are so cute! I could make a card for every single friend with them. :)

This time, I used the neon colours from the Hero Arts July Contest colour challenge. The card base features the Plano stamp in Snow chalk ink. The month is half over and I haven't touched my Summer Stamp School set so I pulled it out and used the sentiment and arrows on this card. These stamps are made by Hero Arts and I love them so you'll be seeing more cards featuring them soon!

I have a couple of popped ribs and a swollen disc so I've been icing my back a lot. If I were outside, the ice would feel great but inside I have to wear a sweater and two fleeces to tolerate the huge ice pack. Brrr!

The colours really pop off the kraft, and the Plano stamp is just awesome. Such a simple addition but it totally makes the card :)
It totally sucks about your back - when your back is hurt, nothing works properly :( I hope it's better soon!
