Inventory challenge, Sweet Sketch Wednesday, Creative Inspirations, ABC challenge, Cute Card Thursday

This week's theme was Travel the World...which is pretty hard for someone who only goes to Iowa and, when we're feeling very adventurous, Michigan! Plus I could NOT find an image to inspire me...then my wonderful friend Danielle sent me a stamped image of Traveling Tilda and suddenly I was inspired!!!! (And I am totally head over heels for this little girl!)

Please stop by and see what the wonderful ladies of the Inventory Challenge have in store for you...and welcome Cathy Lynn!!!!

Cathy Lynn

Sketch is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Cute Card Thursday

Colour Create (white, cream and brown)

...use kraft! (on the back)
ABC: unusual folds...this is a frame which required several unusual folds to keep it from falling over!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Friday!
