Hello.. How are you?..I'm feeling kinda sad at the moment :o(

My baby girl has just flown the nest... ok, I know she's not a baby, she's 18 years old! - & she hasn't actually flown the nest for good..she's only gone on holiday for 3 weeks, but it still feel very weird! Yep, Sharni has just got on a plane & is heading to Abu Dhabi with her fact she's on the plane in mid-air as I type this! I'm sure she's going to have great time, they're staying in Abu Dhabi with his family for a week, then heading for to Dubai week & then on to Florida for a week.. Sounds great doesn't it??? - I just wish I was there with her instead of being left at home missing her!!..

To take my mind off things, I've just popped into the craftroom (any excuse ;o)) & made my Penny Black Saturday Challenge card..

The challenge this week is Red, White & Blue & here's my card...

Apologies for the poor photo, my bro has borrowed my camera so I took this using my I-Phone.

Stamp - PB 'Greetings'
Sentiment stamp - Stampin Up
Patterned paper - American crafts
Cardstock - Stampin Up 'Real red' & 'Brilliant Blue'

I'm also entering this card in to the challenges over on Sir Stamp-a-lots challenge & Crafty Calendar Challenge & Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge.

Super cute - and I know the feeling. They might grow up - but they are STILL our babies - no doubt about it - and in your case as well as mine - our partners in crime - I mean in crafting... =0)

Just as well miss Sofie can take over for a couple of weeks - when mine left the house was EMPTY...

HUGS and ps - love that card - I am involved in (in fact in charge of) a Danish version of Operation Write Home - making cards for deployed soldiers in Afghanistan - that could be a cute motif "me thinks".
