Summer Travels

     Have you ever noticed how long it takes for a planned summer vacation to finally get here, only to have it disappear into a puff of photos and memories in far too short a time?  I think I've found the solution -- travel at a snail's pace, enjoying the journey with no specific destination in mind.  :-D   Hmmm, that might work for aging and having birthdays, too!  What do you think?


     This delightful image is one I found in my collection from Emerald Faeries and I don't remember what it's called but I think it's adorable.  I colored with ProMarkers, chalks and glitter.  This is a single layer card with the image and sentiments right on the card front.    I added one layer of sheer ribbon and a single layer bow made from satin ribbon.  It's about as CAS as you can get.

     Challenges:
Art Impressions
Color Crazy
Crafter's Cafe
Craft for the Craic
Craft Rocket
Crafty Catz
Crafty Girls Creations
Emerald Faeries
Outlawz Twisted Thursday
Sasayaki Glitter
Simply Papercraft
Star Stampz

     I hope your weekend time is going well and that you've managed some down time or at least some slow time.  Remember, it restores the soul and rejuvenates the creative flow.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST POST YOUR COMMENT, IT'LL BE THERE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.

I'm shooting for as much 'down time' as I can squeeze in - and it looks like this little fairy is trying for the same thing! Great CAS card and beautiful coloring.

My time is being getting slower than I'd like but what are you going to do with these old bones. I try to get my down time in every now and then too. Great job with this cute image.
