Simon Says..........Vacation/Travel

wed-newchallenge-header

Good morning!  Here we are in the middle of the week, which means it's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

This week we've chosen Vacation or Travel as our theme, and the design team are all using Studio Calico products.  They make a great variety of products: stencils, paper, embellishments!  If you have any of their products, we'd love to see you using them, too!  

Many of our vacation and travel plans revolve around visiting our grandkids who live in Texas, and so I made a card to reflect that:

SSS May 21

Almost all of the supplies I used are Studio Calico products: papers from their Thataway paper pad, geotags, and a wood veneer airplane.  My sentiment was stamped using an old Hero Arts alphabet set, and I thought it was appropriate for the theme this week!  I am NOT a good traveller, and I've been known to voice this sentiment myself on these long trips!

Now it's your turn!  Heidi has generously provided another $50.00 gift voucher

  3. Melissa, yes, the map is from the Studio Calico Thataway pad. Cheiron used another of the papers on her card. If you google "Studio Calico Thataway" you should be able to get some pictures of more of the papers.
