Enjoy the Journey - Pinspired Challenges

Hello there!

I had to give up my craft room this week,  my middle son decided it was time for his own room.  He and my oldest have enjoyed sharing a room for years now and in many cases chose to share a room even though it wasn't a necessity.  But at 21 and 23 they feel they need their own spaces.  And as we only have 4 bedrooms, I got the boot! lol

Luckily we have a very large family room so I spent two days hauling all of my craft stuff down there.  Of course there is always a domino effect and we have to rearrange a few other rooms to accommodate furniture changes.  The only negative thing about the family room as a craft space is that I will have to keep my area tidy.  Oh and the lighting sucks!  But that is easily fixable.

The whole time I was moving craft stuff, all I could think of is that I really wanted to be playing instead!  Lat night, at 10pm I finally managed to sit down (read stand, as I usually craft standing up) and create 3 cards, and one more this morning! 

This is the only one I can share right now.  It was created for the current challenged over at Pinspired Challenges.....

 I created this geo tag cut file on my Silhouette several weeks ago and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.
 I used my Silhouette sketch pen for the first time today... loved it!
I was intending to keep this card clean and simple but I couldn't resit adding a bit extra to the top corner!

This is the challenge inspiration photo.  The vibrant folding chairs reminded me of a destination or celebration which is why I went with 'enjoy the journey' sentiment and geo tags.

This is my first time joining in with Pinspired Challenges, I love their challenges and keep trying to find the time... so glad I did this time, I love my card!

Thanks for visiting!
