VLV August Week 4!

"ANYWHERE": Dedicated to my hubs. I showed him my card in the early stages and he squealed with delight (well, a very manly squeal...) and said,  "I love maps!" In the same voice he'd use if our youngest wrote him a love note.  He is the best.  So,  I wore "Anywhere" because we always say we would have met anywhere,  at any time,  in any point of our lives. Awww. Ok, moving on...

Here is the VLV, fourth August sketch on the month:

And here's my love card:

(And by the way, between the time I posted how sweet my hubs was and now, he's already buggin' me! Haha, just so you know life isn't perfect...)

So, here's a quick run-down of what I did: I definitely took liberties with this one... Obviously that map represents the more square panel on the LO, and I off-set it because I didn't want to cut it and I thought it would be too symmetrical in the center for the taste I was going for. I rounded the corners to mirror the mall's and rubbed the edges with brown chalk.  After that, I busted out the SU stamp. My fave SU stamp ever.  Then I embossed that sucker.


  • Tim Holtz banner sticker and map sticker
  • Thickers letters
  • Scraps of paper from stash
  • Fiskars hex punches and corner punch
  • Custer's Last Stamp embossing powders in pewter on Tim Holtz embossing pad
  • Color Box Chalk pad in creamy brown
  • SU grunge (splatter) stamp


  1. I think your card is a great combo of modern details and aged look. The golden details is a nice touch and I love how you used the map as background.

  2. Such a cool card! Love the map background. Thanks for playing along with VLV!
