This was a
wild and crazy wonderful Wednesday!
Thank you SO MUCH to my new blog followers!
I'm so blessed you found me ♥
On the 3rd Wednesday of every month, my 2 friends and I
(Barb and Jeanette) create cards with a theme that out of the box.
It's called the Ready, Set, Go! Challenge ~
and this month, I'm the hostess.
For the February Ready, Set, Go Challenge,
I am channeling my son's recent trip to New York ♥
While he was gone, I kept singing "New York New York ...." by Sinatra,
especially the line start spreading the news ....
and I thought "Oh yes, that's something we haven't done before ...
play with newspaper!"
The challenge: to use newspaper somewhere on the card .... literally!
(haha, no pun intended!)
Use a small or large piece but it should be the main focus
when we see your card and say "Oh, newspaper!" on your card!
For my newspaper element, I created a backdrop of New York City,
where he went!
They spent a week exploring the city ~ flying from Miami to NYC!
They saw - and did - and ate - and experienced just about everything!
I asked him his favorite part?
"Missing school for a week!"
I guess at 14, that might be my answer, too :)
I've used a stamp set from MFT called Our Story
to represent my son and the 'school' aspect - although this trip was all play!
He earned it through his hard work and dedication to school,
very high grades and sweet disposition ♥
To add a little fun and the winter theme and the snow he was in,
I added the fun penguin and sentiment from another MFT set, Cooler with You.
And that's it for me today!
Thanks for your visit today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
