Destination Unknown



Ok, I don't know about you, but I need a break from the bird. LOL. :) I do love that set, but I needed to lighten things up for a day. Today is another 3 Little Dreams challenge day, and the challenge this week is to use stitching on your card. Here is my take on the challenge, using materials from my August Globetrottabella kit. I just love that map paper (It's called Passport, and it's by Making Memories... I checked. *wink*), and I thought the little puffy tag was just perfect for this image.



Now I really want someone to make that sentiment into a stamp so I can use it with this Bella. Em, are you reading this? Wouldn't that be fun? Yeah, I thought so. ;)

As for the card, I adhered everything together except for the base, and then drew little dots where I wanted my punches. My long reach punch didn't fit over all of the layers of cardstock though, so I used my old paper piercer for setting brads (you know, the one with the hammer) to punch the holes. It worked great, and thankfully both boys slept through all of my banging. hee hee. I thought the holes looked a little too big, but in the end I kind of like them that way. Then I just threaded the hemp cord through by hand, and secured it at either end. I also stuck the tag down with a mini-glue dot so it didn't flop around.

And there you have it! What do you think? I kinda think I love it, personally.

Want more samples? Check out the rest of the design team blogs (links at right), OR looky here... Lauren Meader herself played with this very same kit and made some super cute things too.

I'll be back tomorrow with my final sneak peek card, and then an altered item on Sunday... that I shoplifted from Target. *sigh* It was under the carseat, and I didn't notice it until I got to the parking lot. So now I have to go back and let them look at me like I have two heads for coming back to pay my $1.05 for a dollar spot item.

I love being a mom. I love being a mom. I love being a mom.

Oh, the shoplifting? All I can say is get used to it. Yep. It has happened to me more times than I can count! And yes they will look at you like you're an idiot, but you will feel better about it! :)
