World Traveler

Good morning all.

It was a lovely springlike day here yesterday after all the frost we've been having. I spent the afternoon at a charity event one of my neighbours was hosting...the children were all enjoying being outdoors. I bought some books to fold and won a nice raffle prize bundle too...including an RNLI note pad which is ripe for transforming!

Sharing a card today which I made for eldest after he passed his motorbike test in preparation for his trip around Iceland later this year.


Stamps from Crafty Impressions Explore set apart from "congratulations" which is from Joanna Sheen. Paper is from Carte Bella. Bike has been stamped onto kraft card and fussy cut then mounted with foam pads.

Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - anything goes with patterned paper

  16. Glad to hear you had a pleasant day's outing in the sunshine after all the nasty weather. This is such a special card for your own world traveler, and wonderful image to celebrate his particular interest. How exciting it must be to travel countries this way (I'm not brave enough, but a young person would be!) . Nice colors to show off all the stamping and those tiny banners are just delightful. TFS & Happy Sunday. Hugs
