Have a Safe Trip

Hello, my friends! How's Wednesday treating you? In a couple of days the week will be over ... yikes! Ordinarily I'd be looking forward to the weekend but I'm kinda freaking out here! The endless list of things to do before our hols, the worry of leaving our furbabies in the care of the house/pet-sitter, the stress of falling behind on blog-visits (sorry!) and cap it all I forgot to send a card to wish our friends a safe trip on their holiday of a life time. I planned to make a card for them a couple of weeks ago but... oh well, here I am 2 days before they leave and having to hand deliver it instead.


The papers are from Papermania's Capsule Collection. Very few embellies: some bling and a button - perfect for a couple of 50-something brothers.  For cutting and matting Spellbinders Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle dies.

The train is from Prima's "Craftsman" cling set, stamped with Memento London Fog. I inked the edges with Faded Jeans DI ... and everything is hoisted up with pop-dots. The sentiment is a word art by Stamp Art Design by Kathryne.

  1. You are such a great friend Asha. They will actually probably really appreciate a hand delivered card - even though you are chasing your tail trying to get ahead for your own trip! Love the card and the verse of Scripture is so very fitting. Love from Christine xx

  18. Getting ready for vacation is a special kind of chaos - something always goes haywire! And for all that I always tell fellow bloggers that life happens to us all - don't sweat getting behind on comments, because you have to live your life!...don't I always stress about it too. LOL! I so hear you :)
    I love this beauty of a card - the colours are gorgeous, and I love the stitched half circles on the main panel! Such a fabulous detail :)
