Almost Travel Time 30

Mona Pendleton | Friday, June 25, 2010 @ 10:00 AM | , ,

Hi Everyone! There has been some changes in my crafting corner of the world - you may have noticed I am no longer on The Play Date Cafe DT - I stepped down simply because I am going to do a lot of traveling this summer & I will be exploring other crafty opportunities. I am going to miss creating along side ALL the talented girls at The Play Date Cafe but I will surely visit & play along when I can & I hope you do the same :)

As I previously mentioned, I will be traveling this summer & have some fun trips planned with my hubby - Any guesses where I may be jetting off to? I will give you a clue - it is about a 19hr flight non-stop from Phoenix! My poor toes are going to look like Oscar Meyer Weiners! :0 LOL (if you already know where we are traveling, please don't give it away :)

For the background, I inked up the Judy Kin's, Carmen's Miranda stamp. I bought this stamp several months ago at a rubber stamp show & finally pulled it out! For sketch inspiration, I played along with Kazan's awesome sketch from 2Sketches4You.

For a closer look:

I combined several stamped images with some fun Karen Foster card stock stickers. I am really enjoying stickers these days - it is super easy when you don't have just the right stamp. I love that I can customize them making my own embellishments like the "time to TRAVEL" one. It's original shape was a square, since I needed a circle, I pulled out my Spellbinders™ circle die templates & voila :)

That's it for now - I have to run some last minute errands - Our journey begins this weekend - I will be back with some more details :) Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Supplies Used: Spellbinders™ S5-024 Mega Classic Scalloped Ovals LG, S4-172 Pinking Circles SM, S4-114 Standard Circles LG, S4-116 Standard Circles SM, W-001 The Wizard Stamps: Tattered Angels, Judy Kins Ink: Stampin' Up, Memento, Ranger Paper: Stampin' Up, Papertrey Ink Stickers: Karen Foster

Just gorgeous, Mona! I always love the way you create your cards background. I love all the stamps on the card. My guess is that you will visit: France, Italy, and Spain. The countries around the Mediterranean Sea! Love the little clues on the card. Enjoy your vacation and take tons of pictures.
