Summer Day Trips

     I have always loved day trips, beginning with trips to the beach when I was a child and continuing throughout my lifetime with outings for fishing and even photography jaunts.  Mostly, I loved the journeys which had no specific destination beyond picking a compass direction, heading out, and taking the first side road that looked interesting.  It was amazing how the summer exploration adventures unfolded trip after trip.

     This cute image from LeAnn's World 101 reminds me of those days.


     I used:
ProMarkers
Dies from Memory Box
Hand bleached CS
Ribbon
Hand-sewn Butterfly bow

     Challenges:
Angie's Digital Stamps
Butterfly (Granny Smith & Gingham + butterfly bow)
Cardz TV
Catch the Bug (ribbon/ die/ sentiment)
Colour Crazy
Creative Fingers
Ellibelle's Crafty Weds.
Pile It On
Scrapy Land
Simon Says Stamp & Show
Work It Weds.

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Such a pretty card in the green shades! I also love road trips like that. We see so much of what we miss when we just go whizzing by.

The fresh greens of Summer - YES! a beautiful card Connie. We like going out on trips like that too, my Mother always used to say to hubby when we took her, "follow your nose". Thanks for the memory.
