Back to the Wags 'n Whiskers blog and comment on your favourite design!

I have used "Travelling Buddies" for my project today. These new May images by artist Cris De Lara are so cute!! My daughter absolutely loves them too! Little Zoe and Gemma are all set to go on an exciting adventure with their luggage and maps. I kept my layout pretty simple for this card, and pop dotted the stamped image for dimension. I printed the sentiment on my computer...it's a quote I found online by Tim Cahill (lol...not sure who he is, but I love this quote!!). It reads "A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles". How true!! Friends are precious, and I feel so very blessed by my wonderful friends!



Ok, off you go to visit Lisa Jane! Don't forget to leave comments at every blog to be in the running for prizes! The hop will remain open until Monday May 10, 2010 at 12:00 pm GMT/7:00 am EST.

The brand new May Wags 'n Whiskers Stamps are now available for purchase!! You can buy them HERE.

Have fun hopping stampers!!

Blessings,

Melanie
