Card Recognition

some journeys cannot be put into words





I won some Amy Tangerine stickers from my local craft shop and thought they'd be perfect for Lucy's Sketch (Day #2).  I used a topo map of Denali for the Moxie Fab World "Map to your Heart" challenge.   I opted out of the sentiment.  I've been asked to make an anniversary card for a friend and the direction was "something non-sappy and no sentiment".  Do you guys think this works?  And yesterday I posted a card for my little guy's birthday and I thought some of you might enjoy this precious photo of him blowing out the candles on his cupcakes, Happy Birthday Josh!

Materials: Amy Tangerine remarks stickers, Topo map, My Favorite Things scallop die,  PTI soft stone card stock, Sharpie black pen, Tim Holtz distress ink antique linen
