life is...

Hello!!  Checking in with a little card I made for a couple of challenges.  I enjoyed my week away.  It was nice to have some down time and not have an agenda (ie... housework, places to go, etc) for more than one day and to spend some time reading.  I was able to read a really awesome book and get slightly addicted to crossword puzzles using an app on my Nook tablet!  Now it is back to reality, lol! 


So, I made this card for the following challenges:  Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches.  I used some Clearly Whimsy Stamps (Travel 1) and dies (Leaving on a Jet Plane) for this card.  I love the CWS set Travel 1.  It is full of cute little travel icons and has some great sentiments.  I stamped the road image from the set using three of the colors from the combo and then used the fourth for the airplane icon.  The sentiment was stamped in black, trimmed out and popped up over the black bakers twine I tied around the panel. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  Stampin Up!, PTI and Memento; Dies:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Baker's Twine:  Impress

Hello Rosie,
I am glad you had an enjoyable time with your family. This is a very clean and interesting card, the Bg you have designed is very clever as it connects to your plane wonderfully.

So glad you enjoyed your 'time out'...I guess we all need a little
R&R once in a while!

I really love how you placed the airplane as if it's traveling over a 3 lane highway, and your sentiment panel is so cool! Loving this color combo, too! It's always fun to stop in to your blog for some inspiration...Thanks!
