Embark on a New JOURNEY...

Hey everyone!

Today is another Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm's Blog and our sweet-as-can-be-DT member Mary has another super sketch:

Isn't it a great one?  I decided that it's been TOO long since I made an Easel card so decided to bring that back today along with the Wild Card Wednesday Color Challenge from Club Anya & Friends this past Wed!  Check out Pam's awesome color combo:

My little card today uses the VERY sweet Amelia from the new July release "Journey".   Seriously, could she be any cuter perched up on her stack of suitcases?  This is a MUST-have for anyone, esp with the summer vacations, and even when the kids go back to school and "embark" on a new journey.    I have to admit that driving home last night I saw a bunch of "Back to School" sales at Staples and Children's Place and thought but....but...I'm only beginning!   Gosh this summer is FLYING.

Well, I'll be back tomorrow for Oh, Alice-we are SHAKIN' things up tomorrow so stay tuned!   For now...be sure to check out my awesome and inspiring teammates:

"Let your mind start a JOURNEY thru a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be…Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar, and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before..."  ~Erich Fromm
I took this pic of my Jacky today at the lake, and just thought it captured 
SO MUCH JOY that I had to share.  He is LOVING life's journey...and SO. AM. I. ;)

"Sooner or later we must realize there is no station, no one place to arrive at once and for all. The true JOY of life is the JOURNEY..."  ~Robt Hastings
