Off to England...

Well, I really wish it was my family going off to England, but it's not me!  It's my mum and niece, Madeleine.  Madeline graduates in May and for her graduation present my mum is treating her to a trip to England to visit our family.  How fabulous is that graduation present?  We are so blessed to have family in England and I certainly don't think any of us will be topping this gift! 

On Sunday, my mum took Madeleine out to lunch to let her know.  I made this fun little card for my mum to give her inspired by this week's Stampin' 411 Challenge!
Ingredients:  Studio Calico Documentary DSP; Stampin' Up Tangerine Tango and Marina Mist Cardstock

  1. Super cute card! I like the grid background with the planes - makes it look like a map or flight chart. Where in England are your family? I used to go over quite often with my ex and we spent a lot of time in Bristol and also in Lincoln. Haven't been in a few years but would love to get over there again!
