On your Travels

Hi Everyone.  Hope you are all well.  It has been a right mixture of weather here today, a bit of sun, some wind followed by outbreaks of rain.  I think the April showers have got a bit confused lol.  
Thought I had better get a card posted today as going to the cinema after work tomorrow so won't get a chance.  Hubby wants to see the Star Trek film.  Not really my cup of tea although I did enjoy the original Star Trek series.  But we are going to Frankie and Benny's first for dinner so not all bad.  

Here is my card for today which happens to be a male card.  This has been made for my sister to give to her Father-In-Law.  He does like his holidays so tried to go for a travel theme.


I started out by doing my own background paper.  I used distress ink to colour the card annd then overstamped with some watch and cog stamps that I had in my stamp collection.  The map stamp is from Papermania.  I stamped it out, tore round it and then used distress ink to age it.  I added some little tags from Papermania, some twine, a charm and a sentiment from LOTV.
A bit of a different style from me but I quite like it.  Hope my sister does.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
