Greetings from the Great Smoky Mountains! We are finally thawing out and seeing some wonderful buds on the trees! I so love Spring!!
Today's card is for the Designing DIVAS Blog Group Challenge hosted by Gina. Gina challenged us to incorporate a theme of books or reading. Me being me, I had to go "off the chart" a little!
This card is going to my daughter who is in Germany for a few more months. They gave me the outstanding news that their new duty station will be Ft Knox, KY! That's only four or so hours from home!!! After three years in Germany, you can imagine how excited I am to have them so close!!
I started this card with a Kraft card stock base. I then printed a map of our area off the computer and adhered it to the base. I used my Cricut ( which was a gift from this daughter ) to cut out the sentiment. I wrote the "hurry home" with a CM fine marker and punched it out with the Word Window punch. I used an oval punch to make the matte layer. I then added the pink flowers with a purple gem brad in the center. The little red heart you see marks the place where we live. I also scalloped the bottom of the top layer to add a little interest.
This was a fun challenge and a fun card for me! I think I got the "read" part in there even if it is a map and sentiment!! You have to read a map, right?!?!? Yep! I thought so, too!
I hope you have enjoyed your visit here today! Don't be bashful and don't be a stranger...come on by any time!! After your first visit, you are no longer a guest, you know! On the second visit you become a friend and if you are a regular follower......well, shoot, you might as well be family!!
