Don't adjust your set!

It's a T-R-A-V-E-L card! From ME!

{I know!}

The girl who never goes ANYWHERE! I made a travel card!

What IS the reason for this anomaly, you might ask?

Ummmmm - TRAVEL! {I'm LEAVING......!}


I loved this sketch, and the fabulous samples by the lovely CARD PATTERN'S crew!

{Okay, not RIGHT nooooowwwww! In MAY!}

Thanks to the generosity and thoughtfulness of my DARLING mother,
my kids, Mom and I, will be flying the friendly skies, to visit
FAMILY, back EAST! Far, far, AWAY!

So, I was inspired to touch materials... that I ALWAYS hoard,
and rarely use,... Ya SEE! THAT'S WHY WE HOARD - for "just in case!"


THANK goodness I got these stamps, way back when,
never used them, but HAD 'em for THIS card!

{THANK goodness...! AMEN!}

Wherever you ARE and whatever you do, I pray for YOU:
have the RIGHT materials, for the RIGHT job....
So, that you, too, can rest easy, when your head hits the pillow tonight,
or ANY night, after you answer the creative call with the RIGHT materials
at the right time.

Bon Voyage!

You don't *have* to physically travel 'cause you have the fantastical ability to travel ANYWHERE in your mind....just as far and fabulous as it will take you!!! :> And you have taken me to Washington D.C. with this card. Yup, you sure have. It reminds me of one of my trips to the nation's captital, one trip in particular, my Junior year in High School with my Dad and my baby brother. I adore the way you make paper talk and thank You oh so much for the memories! :>
