We Travel The World Together (And a stamping contest!)

Blogging is kind of like that, don't you think? We get to know people and and their homes from all over the world! It's kinda awesome if you ask me. Just say'n. And when I got this fabulous stamp in hand from 100 Proof Press and then saw the Get Inspired By Home Decor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World this idea of travel was STUCK but GOOD in my happy little head! So...out came the map paper for a fun card!

Suitcase


Am I the only one mildly obsessed with map papers? I see them. I buy them. I love them. And, by golly, I even go so far as to USE them! *gasp!* I know, right?! Craziness all up in here! HA!!!! This particular one is from October Afternoon and the paper behind it is Crate Paper. That fabulous ribbon...TOTALLY May Arts. Just say'n. And that stamp! That totally wicked awesome suitcase stamp...well, you can find that in the travel section over at 100 Proof Press! (You might also want to search for 'suitcase' and 'luggage' to see some OTHER awesome ones to go with it. Just say'n.
