Maxwell Travels the World

Welcome to the Guild Hall. It’s been a quiet month on the crafty quest front as my lord husband and I prepare for our trip across the Pearlescent Sea to visit the Peeled Paint Port. In amongst all the packing and preparations I did manage to sort through the post. I was surprised to see a postcard from Maxwell, the winner of the Moonstar Mice Winter Games. It seems he has taken his winnings from the games and has been travelling the world with little more than a travelsack and his lust for adventure. 

I created this CAS card by stamping the “Maxwell” image by Kraftin’ Kimmie (newly mounted with EZmount) and colouring him with Prismacolors. I then cut a simple banner shape and stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABCs” set. A little brad and some cord finished off the front earning me +292 white space exp points. This is really an odd feeling...seeing all that blank space...

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set. Because it doesn’t actually say “birthday” anywhere on the card, I have the option of using it for something like Father’s Day as well. The grass and mushrooms I stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Gnome Sweet Gnome” set. 

I stamped some mushrooms on the envelope using the Dylusions “Doodle Parts” set. I love mushrooms. They are cute as well as delicious!

Maxwell shall be travelling over to the following challenges:
Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Challenge #169: Clean and Simple
Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #5: For the Boys
Pile It On Challenge #10: Oh Yummy!
Incy Wincy Designs: Things That Begin With “F” (flame)
Paper Playtime Challenge #5: Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #260: Anything Goes
Penny Black and More Allsorts March Challenge: One for the Boys
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #133: Clean & Simple
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #7: Anything Goes

I wrote Maxwell back and once again invited him to the Guild Hall if he was in this part of the realm. I myself will not be present, but I’m certain the Lady Commander of Copics will more than welcome the company as the void my absence leaves grows exponentially the longer I am away.
