On My Mind

This is a scheduled post.

Hi everyone! By the time you read this, I will have landed in London!

I will be spending the next few days here, staying with my cousins. I am looking forward to exploring a bit of my heritage here. Nana (my dad's mum ;) was born here and married my grandfather during WWII.

I have a simple card for you today - I had mentioned a while back that my mom needed some thinking of you cards - this is another one that I made.

The background was stamped with Background Basics: Text Style II. Then I stamped and cut out the largest branch from Turning a New Leaf. It is a little time-intensive, but I love the look.

The sentiment is from Big & Bold Wishes. I really like how the leaves curve around the cardstock strip.

Thanks for your visit - my next post will be on Wednesday, when I share my creation for the Serendipity Stamps challenge. Thank you for stopping by!

Have a great day!
