Today’s card was made using the Lilypad Lake Bundle (Lilypad Lake stamp set and Lakeside Framelits Dies.) I love the sentiment: To see far is one thing…Going there is another. I love to travel to new places. Let me rephrase that. I love to be in new places. I don’t really enjoy the “getting there” part so much. Motion sickness. Very nasty. Anyhoo, I think exploring new and different places enriches the soul. And I encourage everyone to do it as much as they can.


Here’s what I made:
