Home sweet home!

Well, my awesome VSN vacation is over and it's back to Idaho for this exhausted little chickadee! Tonight I showed my hubby all my cards and this is the one he chose for today's upload. It was actually made for someone I was thinking of when I was at Cindy's. It will hopefully make it to the post office today since I forgot to send it when I was at Cindy's!

Cindy and I had a blast this weekend picking PageMaps sketches for us both to do. This was the first sketch we did and from there we alternated who got to do the picking. I started this card by stamping Utopia from World Tour in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla, cutting out and matting on Chocolate Chip. I mounted on some really cool postage stamp paper I got in the clearance bin at one of the LSS's we went to in our travels. Sorry, there was no name on the paper. The faux rivets are made with medium sized brads, chocolate chip circle punches and little dots all around them with a clear glaze pen. The glaze gives it a really neat effect - click the picture to make it bigger - hopefully you can see the detail! The Wish You Were Here stamp is from Cindy's massive collection of stamps and OOPS! - I don't remember who makes it! I used a tiny circle punch for a faux ticket corner punch and added a little polka dot ribbon.
Don't worry... I haven't forgotten my big announcement... and my promise of pictures from our shopping trip! They'll be coming this week!
