Crafty Catz Challenge # 460

Good morning, I'm back home after a lovely relaxing week enjoying the spectacular beauty of the New Forest at this time of year. Everything is so fresh and vibrant, the trees look amazing in their spring finery, the hedgerows are bursting with spring flowers and of course it's wonderful to see the animals roaming freely, it always makes me smile when they amble down the middle of the road, totally oblivious to the traffic! An added bonus was that everywhere was really quiet...probably because we picked the week between two bank holiday weekends, I'm sure it's a lot busier right now!

Anyway, back to business...I'm a day late with my DT card for this week's challenge at Crafty Catz which is hosted by our lovely Nick this week. The optional theme she has chosen is Bon Voyage/Travel.  We are lucky to have 2 fabulous sponsors this week-

to make my card I used a cute image from Little Blue Button, Let's Go, coloured with copics and fussy cut. I printed the girl twice and used pinflair glue to glue the second image in place on the suitcase for a bit of dimension. The word panel behind the image is stamped with a magazine freebie stamp that I've had for years, DP from stash and I added a tag, ticket and travel bag charm. 
As always, my fabulous teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire you and we're hoping you choose to join us this week...remember the theme is optional, anything goes at Crafty Catz

Thanks to all who were kind enough to visit my blog and leave comments while I was away...much appreciated, I'll be round to visit you all soon!

Chris, what a stunning card you have made here which fits perfectly the Colour Crazy Challenge this week. Lovely the way you have added her leg in front/on top of the case.
Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw. Kym (Colour Crazy Challenge Design Team Member). PS We have just got back this Tuesday following 5 nights away at Mannington, Dorset - beautiful and quiet in the New Forest and so funny to see her ponies standing with their back end in the road whilst feeding!!
