Road to Happiness!


Well today we were suppose to have our stamp crop at the church, but due to vacations and other summer activities did not have enough people, so I decided to still work on some of the projects I need to complete.  But as always before I get started on the birthday scrapbook for my wonderful granddaughter, I had to do a card for the sketch at Stamping 411.  Love there sketches!  I also needed a birthday card for my sister and was so excited to be able to use my new stamp set, "Road to Happiness."  I am going to love this stamp set.  Do I say that about all my stamp sets?  Yes!!!!  Anyway once I  got started I realized the new Fan Fair paper I had was perfect for the card as one side is a map.  I was so excited and it just went together perfectly.

Here is the side view of the card!


And of course the inside!


And a close up of the stamped image.  I was a little off on getting the presents exactly right in the car, but that just makes it unique.  Right?

That's wonderful! I really like the colors you used, and the embossing is fantastic! I need to start using my embossing folders more. It adds so much to a card.
Hope your day is full of blessings, my friend! :o)
