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:
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.
