Smiles Across the Miles Travel Card---Get ready for Another MayzyArt Challenge!

Good morning, Crafty guys and gals!  I hope you are enjoying a bit of cool with lots of blue skies day like I do.  From my window, I cannot help but marvel at the wonderful things my Father in heaven has created and I feel loved and secured knowing that He holds my every moment like He does all His creation.  These scriptures came to my mind and I am comforted by His promises---ancient yet holds true today and for eternity.

Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah 
 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.  (Psalm 46:2-4)

Anyway, today is Mayzy's 30th Birthday so let's all wish her a "Blessed and Happy Birthday."  Because of this, she has a 30% off discount available to all who would want to purchase her digi stamps today.  More details here.  

Well, "Romance is in the air" at our new Challenge at MayzyArt and I want to share with you the project I created for that Challenge.  I was inspired by a lot of my travel stamps in putting this project together.  I used one of Mayzy's cutest stamp, "Joan Jetsetter" and colored her with my ProMarker/Prismacolor/Spectrum Noir markers.  My base card is a 5.5-inch square Kraft CS.  The DP's are from My Mind's Eye (Wild Asparagus Collection) and I used the 2 largest Nestabilities large Scallop die for that wonderful shape in the center of my card.  I used my "Love" border stamp from Fiskars together with all the travel stamps from Cloud 9, Scrappy Cat and Paper Company Studio.  The main sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC which I made into a tag and attached the hemp to---I love it! So, you see, she is such a "Romantic Traveler" making sure she kept her hubby updated wherever she goes.  She wished he's beside her but he needed to take care of the family business (LOL...See how my imagination works!).  Lastly, I stitched all over this card.  So, tell me what you think of this creation.
