Travel The World!

After Lisa made reference to some of us might be "smarty pants," I had all sorts of ideas for the Bloggers Challenge theme of "Travel."   Then I decided to fly straight!  I have wanted to use Mr. Tim's Air Travel stamps, so I decided today would be the day!  I did a couple of technique's from the "Compendium of Curiosities," one is that you emboss your image with clear embossing powder and then do you inking and other stamping and then remove with an iron.  Really if you don't own this book, it is a pretty great investment! 
I would have posted this earlier, but my lunch bell (Molly) was just ringing away!  How many of you know about Dalmatians?  Well, I have had the honor of owning two and never did I set out to get a purebred, it just happened with the first, Misty!  We did this "Sponsor a Life" event at the local shelter and for fun, we went to see the dog we were sponsoring.  We were so excited to see how lovely she was and knew without a doubt that she would be adopted!  I called that Monday to check her status and was told, she would be put down in an hour.  I lost it and cried like a baby and told them, don't you do that!  We will take her.  I called my hubby and told him to go to the shelter and pick up Misty!  We already had Shadow a smooth coat Border Collie (the little one in my pic), so I had not planned on #2.  When Misty died, Shadow got so depressed and we ended up at the shelter and there was Molly!  Anyway, this got very long to tell you that Dalmatians are very vocal and have no problems telling you in is time to get up at 5:30 AM on weekends or that it is time to eat! 

Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by for a visit!  Oh, come by tomorrow for a little surprise!

Your story about the dogs is very moving, thank you for sharing.
Loving your wonderful tag and I totally agree with you about the CofC book, its fabulous for so many techniques. Enjoy the weekend, Annette x

Lisa said...

I SO hadn't thought of using that technique with the passenger ticket- but I love, love, love how it turned out!
Thx for sharing your doggie story, I had always thought I'd love to have a Dalmatian, but we ended up with two toy poodles instead...and funny enough, they were the one dog we weren't interested in having. But Hercules would've been put down and we saved him too! =)

Great tag Terry! Love the plane and I have never tried embossing and ironing over it! OMG, I am a night owl, I would not like it if my dog woke me up at 5:30AM!

Love your travel tag Terry. The story of your dogs was very moving. We rescued one of our collies many years ago, following a radio broadcast. Yvonne x

Love this tag, Terry! The way you've done the plane is awesome - it looks like it's coming in for a landing! Enjoy your new pooch - does this mean we'll be seeing lots of spots in your artwork?
