JUST US GIRLS #359 - Word Week

Good morning crafty friends. I apologize for not having my post ready when it was supposed to. Let's just say life got crazy the last few days, and it was all I could do to get a card made, let alone blog about it. I had finally finished it yesterday in the early evening, took pictures, and then crazy time happened. After things settled down, I completely forgot to do my post, and went outside for some much needed time by the fire pit. UGH!!!

So, it's a new month, which means it's Word Week at JUST US GIRLS! Ina is your hostess, and she's picked the word TRAVEL as your inspiration. Here is how I interpreted it:

 and the inside:

Oh my goodness, it's another almost one layered card again. I must be possessed! LOL! Last week I received happy mail from my Snarky Sister, Lynne, and in it were these really cute circular map stickers. It couldn't have showed up at a better time, as I really don't own much in the way of travel schtuff. I die cut two sizes of circles: one slightly larger than the stickers in the same color, the other slightly larger than the first in scraps of colorful card stock. Each are popped up on thin foam squares. After stamping the sentiments, I rounded one of the corners. 

I hope you get a chance to play along with our travel themed Word Week at Just Us Girls! As it's a new month, we have a new Guest Designer joining us! Please welcome Kathy Schweinfurth of Stamps at Play. Hello Kathy! Glad that you are joining us this month!
