Travel dreams!

Terrific Tuesdays to you all!

The mail man was ever so kind to me yesterday and my prize from the gorgeous girls at Sugar Creek Hollow arrived.  This morning I was meant to be focusing on my altered project but I just could not resist playing with these new little beauties and the to die for seam binding! Again, Thank you greatly Sugar Creek Hollow

I also had on my messy desk this weeks sketch from Stampin' Sisters in Christ with a few notes of challenges on at the moment like masculine, yellow ribbon, vacation, shabby chic, fussy cutting.  You can see a full up to date list at Feline Playful just click right HERE!

I knew the Travel World stamps from TPC Studio I had received would make a great mans card and as hubby has always promised me one day we will get to Paris and London (for that Ohh La La Trip I hope it is children free! :P) I thought they would be a great excuse to make a card to let him know he is being missed and thought of.

While just stamping random images to look at their prettiness, I wished I had a postcard die.  It clicked to me that while I don't have one, I DO HAVE fancy scissors and one with a little scallop that would give a faux postcard look!  From there this card just came together perfectly.  I kept the fancy scallop cutting going on all the layers to really give the 'stamp/ postcard' feature highlight throughout the card. 

I hope hubby likes it as much as me and maybe just maybe he will get the hint - I wanna go to PARIS!
