Card Recognition

just a note and where is beth?







Yvonne's Do More With Less challenge is make a newly vintage project and I got to thinking about what the Play Date Cafe colors were saying to me (go on a trip, but don't forget your luggage tags or something like that).  I used Tiffany's sketch, she wants to know what your crafty goals are....and I think goal is to continue doing what I love, making cards... I always appreciate the comments and the praise, but my goal is to just keep on playing with paper and stamps.





Where is Beth?  The capital is Yerevan, the resting spot of Noah's Ark, which is on Mt. Ararat is out her window, it will cost 600 dram to buy a cup of coffee.  Congrats Beth on your one year in the mystery country, I know you've got global ambitions and will be ticking off a few more international locales, don't worry I've got my google maps handy.  I've added a tiny bit of bling for this week's CAS-ual Fridays "Bring the Bling" challenge.   And used the Play Date Cafe colors again.  And the country of Beth's location is printed right here on the card!

Where is Beth? Is she really at Mt Arafat or is it a game you are playing that I don't know about, Erin? Love the card either way. Thanks for the heads up on the magazine! I am never up on Tuesday before 9:00AM after late Monday night!
Have a fun day!
