Leavin' On a Jet Plane ...

Hi there!

I hope you are doing great!

You know how you have that one friend that starts talking about the baby nine and a half months before it's due and the one that starts talking about her upcoming vacation nine and a half months before she leaves and the one that starts talking about her wedding ... well, you get my drift. It turns out that I'm one of those friends! I apologize to those of you who are groaning and thinking, "Geez, I thought she had gone and come back by now! Just go, already!"

I am, in fact, leaving on Saturday! Finally!

But, first, when Hammy and I saw that there are a couple of challenges in Blogland perfect for celebrating Take-Off Day, we had to play along and share!
I made this QACAS card using a Clouds stencil from STAMPlorations to sponge the sun and cloud with distress inks. The NBUS jet stamp is from We R Memory Keepers and the sediment has lost its packaging info.

Challenges ~ Look the word time is in all of them!

New Friends Corner

I have had new friends waiting in the wings until I had a total of five to introduce today. But when I clicked on them, I discovered there are three of them I can't find from just the name used and they didn't leave a comment that might help me find them. I hate when I can't find you.

These other two ladies have waited long enough and I'd like you to meet them before I leave, so please join me in giving a warm welcome to:

Miranda of Bolletje (Scoop) Lucky. Miranda has been blogging since the beginning of 2012 and her blog is named after her beloved dog Lucky, her companion for 15 1/2 years. Miranda is from the Netherlands and is the mother of two beautiful daughters. You will be inspired by Miranda's wide-ranging talents from her crochet and handiwork to her scrapbooking and her gorgeous cards! She also kindly offers a tab with tutorials and tips!

Zelda of Out of Africa Creations. Zelda is a Rhodesian-born South African now living in America, hence the name of her blog. She is brand-new to Blogland, having just started blogging in April of this year! Please take a minute to welcome Zelda to our wonderful and supportive community of crafters! I guarantee that you will be bowled over and inspired by the extraordinary cards Zelda makes!

Thank you for joining, ladies, and welcome to the Playhouse!

~~~

Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!* The next time you hear from me, I'll be in jolly ol' England! Hopefully my travelogue won't be all kinds of boring for you, as is often the case when seeing other people's vacation photos!

Please don't feel like you need to comment along my journey. You've all been extraordinarily kind with your comments the last several months, considering I've been extraordinarily remiss in returning the flavor!

Mwah!

*Life is too short!

Have a wonderful trip.
