Let's Take a Trip.....


Welcome!! I am off to see the wizard....well not really but I am off to the CKC in Charlotte, NC today with my buddy Olga and to meet up with our friends Jennie and SCH's very own Linda   for a bit of shopping and lunch. How much better could that be?

Today at Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge #24 is Vintage Travel and we invite you to create a shabby chic/vintage creation with that in mind. Be sure to stop by SCH blog to get all of the details.  

I again pulled out an old Stampin' Up set and joined it with another of the new sets I picked up on our last stamp show trip. I was lucky enough to get several Justrite clear stamp sets for only $5 each. My vintage luggage stamp is from SU's Travel Post. I stamped it on design paper from First Editions Boho Chic and layered it onto Bo Bunny's et cetera papers which are another of my finds at the show.

Everything you see, the Fleur De Li's, flourishes and the beautiful Paris stamp which is designed to fit perfectly in the Labels 4 Spellbinders die is from the "Greetings from Paris" Justrite set.....don't you love the shabby, distressed look to these?


Even the makings for the postcard are part of this set with me adding script to make it look more authentic from a Hero Arts stamp.

I am using Spellbinders Ric Rac borders for the first time, pairing it with some of the lace that I found a while back. So happy with this card and hope you like it as well.

Now why don't you travel on over to the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog and see what the rest of the gals have for you today and then join us this week with your card.  

Now where was that yellow brick road??????
