another piece of the world...

It's been a very long time since I've hung around the Moxie Fab World, but I have to admit I couldn't resist the challenge Cath issued recently on  Get Inspired Week.   I've loved globes all my life and confess they're another thing that I collect.  Both the kind that are scattered on shelves around my house and red rubber images.  So it was fun to ponder which one to use on my card.

Recently my son asked if he could give a card I had given him to his Geography teacher.  How dear is that???  It had been another SplitCoast
Stampers sketch challenge card, YOU add.  I knew that I would have to repeat the theme as he so generously gave his away.  (That's a lesson there for me...)  Today over on SCS, the sketch challenge SC362 was perfect to
spotlight the I Brake for Stamps standing globe and the Sizzix puzzle die.
I used some very old map dp, Heidi Swapp map tape and the wonderfully vintage
My Mind's Eye Stella Rose 'Hattie Buddies' double sided paper.

Now while my son is sitting in class exercising his gray matter, I'm thinking that
no matter how far flung his life takes him,  I just have to give one of those globes
a spin and the memories will fill my heart...

Hope your day is overflowing with blessings,
Susan

I love globes too Susan! I'm always thrilled when I spot a little pencil sharpener one or some such design at an antique store! Your card is wonderful - love the ribbon on the clip and great sentiment!
