Rockin’ all over the world

Hope you are enjoying the weekend and a long, Bank Holiday weekend if you are in the UK?! Each morning I have celebrated the fact that this week there is no loading up and setting off on my travels for work! Ironically, this week’s challenge over at City Crafter Challenge Blog has the title “World Traveller,” although my work travels have hardly been global, I have certainly covered a lot of miles, both by van and on foot. I sometimes I reckon a must travel a couple of miles just turning a circle whilst I remember what it is I was about to do!! Anyway, here’s the card I made:

Well of course I was going to use Agatha the Traveller!!!! I’ve used some map print paper and used distress inks to colour it, basing my palette on the sort of colours you see on world maps.

I’ve created a little tag using Stampotique’s Agatha the Traveler by Magda Polakow.

The journey stamp is by Tim Holtz and I’ve also added in a little stamped and punched butterfly. All the backgrounds and the butterfly were inked with the same colours that I used on the map.

Before I sign off, I have to tell you that yesterday I finally went and had my Mother’s Day afternoon tea. My youngest son had bought me a voucher for Mother’s Day for afternoon tea for two at the pub/restaurant that is owned by the chefs that he works for. Rowley’s  is also where his girlfriend works. Mr Beez and I went for tea yesterday afternoon and very good it was too. When the tea arrived I discovered that the Head Chef had created some special biscuits in my honour:

bee biscuits

How cute is that?? There was one each for Mr Beez and, like the rest of the afternoon tea, it was absolutely delicious!

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Lisette your card is another jaw-dropper. The idea to add color like you see on maps is brilliant. And again; you nailed the challenge. Agatha made me laugh; she is cute and funny! And that bee-biscuit made for you looks great! Good to hear you had a lovely afternoon!
    Thnaks so much for being with us ar again at CCCB. Always a pleasure to have you with us!

  2. How famous are you? A biscuit made especially in your honour, did it have a special name too?

    I love the card, it is another fabulous Agatha and the map looks amazing. I love that ribbon too.

  3. Now that was so special having your own bee bisquits, awesome, they are so darned cute. No time like present to use your Mother’s Day tea option. And get to see your son also?
    I notice you use the different girl stamps alot, love them. Can you only find them in UK or do you know if they’re available in US? I’d love to have those stamps, you get so much use out of them and they couldn’t be cuter. Looks like fun finding ways to use them. Been thinking I should get some of mine out to make cards, been long time. Grand daughter at college was disappointed when I didn’t make her high school graduation card, bless her heart. Her Mom told me shortly after her graduation.
    Time for me to get shower, hit the bed to read for while before sleep. Hope you had wonderful weekend and will have relaxing week ahead.

  4. I echo all Stella’s comments … Love that you coloured that map paper! Terrific card and your tea sounded lovely … such cute Bee biscuits! Thanks so much for your continued support at CCCB!!

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
