Around The World Challenge #4


This will be officially THE last post before my trip to London. We are not leaving till this evening, so I still have a few minute to post. After my packing, I made this card before bed last night in about half hour. I didn't want to miss Vicky's Clips-n-Cuts's Around the World Challenge, especially it's London!!
 Since I don't have the right stamps or images, this is my attempt from the inspiration. I think it's great for grads. Don't you think?
I must confess this London trip is giving me a lot of travel anxiety like never before. I am generally a laid-back and relaxed person. But this morning's Air India crash (in India) makes me worried a bit...you see, we changed our flights from British Airways to Air India due to British Airways's strike! And then there's the ongoing volcano situation.....I hope we have a safe trip. Thank you, my blog friends, you must be tired of me rambling about this trip. In fact, I bet you want me to leave now SAFELY! Well thank you, I like that :) ciao!

Fun! Fun! Love the key accent too! Have a great trip!!

Great take on the challenge picture, Virginia! Wonderful card! And this is probably the safest day ever, to travel with Air India. No airline has ever had two plane crashes in one day. Take a deep breath, stay relaxed, and enjoy the flight. I know you're going to be just fine! Have a wonderful time, hug Cathy, twice, for me and bring back lots of fun pictures for us to see! Love ya, and big hugs! :)

Hi Virginia! Just letting you know that I'll be PRAYING for you and your family for safe travels and NO ANXIETIES about anything, just PURE FUN!
Anyway, I LOVED what you designed in such a SHORT amount of time. Sure wish I could be more like you in creating cards, Virginia. Only anxieties I suffer with are those about our house and the clutter. :( Time to throw out some more STUFF!!!!! Have FUN. Love, Karen xoxo
