I have been so busy w/ wedding projects for my cousin, gift certificates for my brother's girlfriend, and just the daily exhaustive life of a stay at home mom, that I have not taken time to just play w/ my stamps and create something just for me. Last night and this morning, I took the time to do that. And you know what? It reminded me of why I love this hobby in the first place! It challenges me to be better than I was yesterday, and to keep creating outside the box and of course USE YOUR STUFF!!! I keep buying, buying, buying, and never using! That's one of my New Years' resolutions, to use my stuff! I buy it because I like it, so why not use it and admire it! LOL!
Ok, so this card is based on a sketch that My Favorite Things has drawn up. I changed it just slightly because well, I had to. You can see the sketch HERE. And here's my take on the sketch:
I went vintage travel with this. My challenge to myself is to use My Favorite Things and show them in a vintage light. It seems to be working...?
I think I'm going to give this to my husband for Valentine's Day. He knows how much I love maps, and there clearly is no one else in the world like him! Thank God there's only one! LOL!
Have a nice Valentine's Day!
