No Transportation

Okay....this is a stretch for the Ways to Use it Challenge this week. We were to "pack our bags" and the cards could be anything about traveling. Well, I don't have any modes of transportation to use...although I remembered later that I do have that little rocket from Pun Fun. But I don't think you'd actually pack a suitcase for a rocket.

Anyway....I decided that we were travelling to a sister's house to visit the family. It took me quite a while to get the tag from AtoZ Accents stretched out to fit everyone's label, but I used my stamp-a-ma-jig. I'm regretting adding ink around the edges of the tags, they may have been better clean, oh well, they'd get mussed up travelling anyway.

I've also centered the card around this weeks colour challenge.

I've been absent from blogging because I've been puttering in the garden after school. By the end of all that I'm exhausted. Greg and I are off today to a choir practice to sing at a friend's ordination into the ministry tomorrow. So, tata for now.

Thanks for dropping by - Happy Stampin' - Joan
