With three days left

....I should be packing for this Europe trip.


I'm such a procrastinator.

Anywho's, you're not here for details on the procrastination, so without further ado (or procrastination)...

The 'road' peels away to reveal the hidden sentiment

- I'm starting to wonder why I did it now, because the card looks so darn cute as is! I used the zipper technique I explained HERE.Oh, and I drew this arrow (and colored in a little too early, as you can tell ;)) since I didn't have an arrow stamp...

A little shine on the windows, as inspired by Jennifer McGuire (congrats on the little one!)

I didn't have the sun or flowers on originally (which you can see in the sentiment picture), but it felt too blank without them (plus the sun is too darn cute - my new favorite stamp!)

Card made for this months Hero Arts contest (interactive cards), and the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge.

Well, my stomach is telling me to stop procrastinating and eat lunch, so I'm off!
Thanks so much for stopping in today and have an awesome day!
