Missing You

 
I had a variety of ideas for the current PaperSmooches challenge, but none of them were translating!  So, I decided it was time to make my nana a card.  Since she is in England and I'm in Ohio, I thought a map showing both of us would represent how much I miss her across the miles.  yes, yes, yes, I know very literal!  I loved playing along with some new PaperSmooches stamps I got because I had a card published using PS stamps.  It's always awesome to get new stamps and for free is even better.  So what do you think?  I think the stamped panel could stand alone too with of course a white background from this CAS loving girl!

Who doesn't love free stamps? Congrats on being published, too. Clever idea with the map as a background! You're definitively right - the stamped panel would make a focal point itself with just a white card base :)

Neat, Lynn! I love how the leaves are falling off the tree and the different colors you chose :) I've gotta get this tree! Also loving the map paper behind.

I love the map Lynn, an amazing background. What a great way to show the world isn't that big.

I love the literal approach to this and I bet your nana will too! Love how the colours of the leaves coordinate with your map AND represent all of the seasons - clever!
Hugs!
