Enjoy the journey!

Good morning! It's the start of a long weekend here in the UK as it's a bank holiday on Monday, weather forecast isn't great but it's always nice to have a bit of extra time to relax and enjoy being with family and friends. I never tend to go too far from home on holiday weekends as the traffic is always appalling so I don't 'enjoy the journey!' Unlike this little guy, who is as happy as can be as he zips around  the stationary cars in the horrendous traffic jams on his trusty bike! You can tell how much he is enjoying himself by the big smile on his cute face!  I just love this little chap! 
This is my DT card for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and yes, you've guessed it, the theme is journeys/travel. the Prairie Fairy image is coloured with copics, a touch of glossy accents added to his specs and headlight. The 'tickets' are made with Tim Holtz stamps. Words and chevron stamps were magazine freebies and so were the papers.
 We are sponsored this week by Crafty Ribbons and there is also a monthly prize from
the Ribbon Girl.  We'd love to have you join  us this week so get out your stamps and start crafting! Don't forget to visit Sweet Stampin Challenge blog to check out the inspiration from my lovely teamies, they've created some lovely cards for this challenge!
Whatever you're doing, whatever the weather, have a great weekend!
