Ticket to Ride

Our life has returned to a little more normality with the return to school of my youngest son and the return to university of the middle one - after 6 months of getting on each others' nerves!  The panic of March when we were desperately trying to organise a flight home from Scotland before the airport closed down and the hours of zoom meetings that needed to be organized for my youngest sons's teachers and therapists (and the constant disagreements over my qualifications to be his teacher) are hopefully behind us now.  

The current prompt from Double D Challenges - "DON'T FENCE ME IN"- appealed to me, given I once again have some time to myself.  Here's the mood board 

Fences (particularly white picket ones) always look so idyllic and complete a country scene IMO!  I love this MFT Rolling Hills and Fence Set - it's so easy to create a quick scene with a some blue card stock for the sky and some floral DP for a field of wildflowers - just needed to add a bike, a few clouds and a sentiment.

Speaking of the sentiment, we have an Action store where I have been able to get some really useful dies at unbelievable prices.  Take the frame I used on this card, which is the smallest of 5 "ticket" dies (there are also 5 oval dies in the set) for around three euros.  The reason I mention this is that A is for Action, and the current challenge for Just Add Ink is "Just add A".

I'd also like to join Pixie's Snippet's Playground as there were lots of snippets used (and some created for future projects for e.g.. the leftover from the hill cut can be used on the bottom on another card)!

Edited (I don't know how I missed this one, it's one of my favourites) to join Timeout where we are challenged to be Adventurous.  Riding that penny farthing would be pretty adventurous in my humble opinion.

Thanks for stopping by especially if you take the time to add a comment.  I love to hear from you,
