Where in the World...

That was the title theme for this month's swap at the InkSpot ( )

Even though most of us are from IL, BirchTree is a tiny little town in the Ozarks that unless you are from this area, you probably don't even know it exists. So, welcome to Birch Tree MO!

With the help of my local chamber of commerce, I took state maps and cut out the area I needed. I wanted to use clear embossed glue dots to highlight the town but of course I was out and no place in the area had them. I improvised with the red pen and used a red arrow to point to my house. The cone flower is the state flower. I picked the stamp up on my trip to IL last week. I used LePlume markers and spritzed them for a water-color effect. For a final touch (though not really visible), I used the slick tape transfer to add the title to the card.

I enjoyed making this one. Next month is One Day Of Creation. Hmmm... gonna have to think on that one.

Till next time...

Creative Blessings
