On My Way 51

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, June 27, 2010 @ 1:25 AM | , ,

Hi Everyone! I will be well on my journey to the far East when some of you may be reading this :) My dear sister will be camping out at my home while I am gone to take care of my dogs & other pets we have. My trip really inspired me to ink up one of my new favorite Waltzingmouse Stamp sets: Asian Gardens.Several of you guessed the correct destination spot that my hubby & I will be spending the next few weeks - China :) Many of our friends have asked if we had adopted a baby! My babies are 22 & 2o, 14 & 13 and 2 fur babies 4 !!! I think that is quite enough for me to handle :) For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #4.

Up close you can get a good look at the darling blossoms & the sweet bird cage :) The Asian Gardens stamp set is full of so many images - I was able to stamp this entire gift ensemble & not one piece of patterned DP was used! Now that is some serious stamping :) Scott, my DH thinks I am crazy for sneaking in this project right before slipping out of town! NO stamps, ink, paper on this trip - he will surely push me over The Great Wall! :0

I pulled out the favorite "Take Out" template designed by Kelleigh Ratzlaff.

Perfect 'lil gift set for my sweet sister Tina :) If you visit here often, you know how much I LOVE tags.

I didn't get real fancy with the box because I thought this tag was enough all by itself - what do you think?

That's all for now - I am hoping for high speed internet connection while away. I am traveling with Mr. Technology so I will be well equipped to stay connected with all of you :)

Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend & hopefully, I will be in touch :) Be Sweet!

Oh Mona this is such a spectacular set! This card is so Asian with that gorgeous stamp and lovely cherry blossoms! What a great take on this interesting sketch!

Mona this is perfect! You've captured the atmosphere of Japan (or China!) absolutely. Just reminds me of one of those decorated paper screens they have instead of walls in old fashioned wooden houses. And what a fabulous trip you are going to experience. I hope we will see some pictures of China here.

peggysue said...

that is beautiful! I truly hope you enjoy your trip to China. I went there once, although our purpose WAS to adopt and our daughter has been home with us for almost six years. We'd like to take her when a bit older to visit her homeland. But really, a lovely card here, thanks for the inspiration!

Dawn B. said...

This is beautiful Mona.. Have a wonderful trip.. What an adventure you will have..

Stampin' Pam said...

Now this is a perfect set for your trip! How pretty the color pallet you used - love the flowers and the contrast with the black and white. Have a fabulous time - don't even THINK about papercrafting - enjoy the sights, sounds, foods and all that China has to offer you.

Antje said...

WOW, this is stunning - I love the colours you used, the tender background that you made and the tag in addition - GREAT all together.
Hope you have a wonderful trip!

Jen Cuthbertson said...

This is so gorgeous, Mona! I love how you created your own patterned papers for the background and the colors of the flowers on the branch are amazing! Nice work!!

Tatanky said...

I love the color combo on this creation so pretty. I agree with you the tag makes the box look really pretty. Wow China...can´t wait to hear about your trip when you're back. You really made me laugh with the bit about your hubby pushing you over The Great Wall if you brought stamps to the trip. I just came back from cruising the Baltic Sea it was nice. Enjoy your trip !!!

Sue Lelli said...

Did you cut out all of those flowers???!!! Popping them just added so much to this BEAUTIFUL CARD!!!
