Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

Bon Voyage for Leona!

My BFF Leona is heading off to Asia for five weeks -- first to Taiwan, where she grew up, then to Myanmar (formerly Burma) along with some friends who have relatives living there.  Here's the Bon Voyage card that I made for a group of friends to sign.

I did a collage style with two retired Stampin Up! sets (Travel Post and Travels Abroad) and a Tim Holtz set.  I used various chalk and distress inks.  The "twine" is actually frayed strands from some old burlap that I couldn't bear to throw away a while back.  I threw on three leaves that I had left over from an encaustic wax session last month...because, well, I love leaves, they coordinated with the color scheme, and it is still autumn, although you wouldn't know it from the chilly weather we had on Halloween yesterday..

Inside is a Bon Voyage greeting.
