Playing along with a few challenges

After recovering from a three week vacation in a travel trailer all the way to New Hampshire and back (to visit my husband's son), I finally have some time to play on a few challenges. The Words to Craft by blog had this challenge for August/September.
 The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.  ~~ Lao-Tzu
Here's my take on the challenge.

Grab Our Blinky!

The sentiment is Impression Obsession but the rest of the cards is from the Club Scrap Navigation kit.  I am also entering this in Darnell's NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) challenge #7 since I have had this sentiment for a long time but this is the first time it has seen ink.  

Happy Crafting!


  1. Marvelous background and that quote is the cherry on top! (Tolkien is a favorite author!)

  2. Hi Donna! What a handsome masculine card; that quote is one of my favorites! Glad you had a good trip!

  3. Great card, Donna. This makes a terrific card for a guy, I love the color as well as the stamp and sentiment. Great card for both challenges. I see you were up in my neck of the woods (almost). I'm from MA. Enjoy the weekend.

  4. Your trip sounds fantastic, Donna, although it sure has been hot all over the country this last month, hasn't it?! I hope you had a great time! I think this is one of the nicest travel type cards I've seen! I really love that NBUS sediment!! Thank you for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell (Sorry if this is a repeat. It froze up when I hit publish so I'm not sure if it took or not.)

  5. Your card looks so earthy and beautiful!
    Sounds like a great way to spent your vacation!And welcome back to crafting... Enjoy your sunday!

  6. Great card, perfectly matched to the color of the image.

  7. What a great looking background and fab sentiment!
    Nice to see you back, hope you had a wonderful trip.

  8. Donna, Looks like your trip inspired you to make a wonderful travel-inspired card! So glad Darnell's challenge inspired you to use this wonderful sentiment. Thanks for joining us at Words 2 Craft By for our Single Step Challenge. :)

  9. Hi Donna
    Fabulous card and your trip sounds fabulous too.
    Can't help but think of the book Hotel New Hampshire when anyone mentions it lol!
