Travel challenge

This is my second post for today. Now this card was a real challenge. I was asked to make a Birthday card for a girl who doesn't like girly images but who loves to travel especially to America. I always have to make something a bit different for her and her sister asked for a card with travel and Mickey Mouse as she loves Florida and Disney theme parks. I decided to make a trishutter card and use various scrapbooking bits I had picked up in America and match some papers to them. Although not my usual sort of card I was pleased with the result. I managed to include Mickey Mouse, suitcase, dollar bills, plane, tickets, map and compass.

I'm off to the famous Christmas concert at Thursford tomorrow afternoon so really looking forward to that. It is such a popular event that people travel from all over the country to come to Norfolk and booking opens in January! We are so lucky here to have no snow though it is still bitterly cold. I hope you are all are keeping safe and warm as I know you have really bad snow in some areas of the UK.
