Up Up & Away !!!!

This is the card that is traveling as a stow-away in my sons suit case from London's Heathrow Airport to Boston USA where he is heading for a skiing trip, he doesn't know its there it a little surprise packed between his clothes just to wish him a good holiday and to let him know wherever he is and whatever he's doing I'm thinking about him, I know I'm silly but I'm sure he will love it.
I've used Skiing Trevor from the CC Designs Christmas kit and coloured it with Copic marker I never thought I would get him coloured as Reid kept appearing and I had to keep stopping and hiding what I was doing !! he he
The Paper is DCWV I have stitched and distressed the edges with my Heidi Swapp distress tool added lots of Silver snowflake peel-offs and some Tim Holtz Rock candy to add glitz but it doesn't show up to well in the photo
Lastly the sentiment stamp is from SU
Hope you like it ...hope he loves it
I have entered it into the following challenges
Bah-Humbug Christmas Challenge Peel-offs
Papertake weekly challenge open
ABC Christmas Challenge G is for Glitz with the optional Extra Silver!
Incy wincy Challenge Stitching
Have a great evening

I know it's probably way too soon to really know or even probably have symtoms, but I'm just so excited to know. We started ttc a week ago and ever since then I have felt sick but never threw up... The feeling like I was gonna throw up hasnt gone away at all... This morning I couldn't even finish my toast for breakfast cause I felt so sick. Is this a possible pregnancy or is it just all in my head?

Mummylade said...

awww, how thoughtful of you
