Day 195: Going back to Cali, Cali

I wish I was going back to Cali!

I miss LA so much that it hurts. I love, love, LOVE the weather there – and today it feels like an LA weather day. There are so many one-of-a-kind restaurants that I miss eating at such as The Original Pantry (my ultimate favorite place for breakfast!), Dinah’s, Don Antonio’s, Lemonade, and so many others that I could literally eat my way through LA!

Surprisingly enough, I am not overweight by any means. I’m actually very petite, but I have a great appetite for good food and LA has it all. Even food trucks!

Anyway, my inspiration for today’s card comes from LA because I was at work talking to someone who lives in San Diego (I like S.D., but it’s not my favorite compared to LA.) and she got me a little homesick for all the wonderful things I miss about LA. Like the beach, not having to deal with freezing, cold snowy weather, great shopping, and so much more!

So, since I was in a LA kind of mood and the weather reminds me of LA, why not create an LA card for the retro card series.

Remember, I have one for Paris, Sydney, New York, London, and Pisa, Italy. And now one for LA. I’ll probably have more cities for series, but I’m not sure which one I will do next.

In the meantime, I have only thing to say, “I Love LA”.

Day 70: Another card for the retro series

I’m too tired to work on a card tonight, so I recycled an earlier design for part of the retro series.

The series now contains: Paris, Sydney, London, and now Pisa, Italy.

There will be more cities added at a later time.

In the meantime, as they say in Italian, “graze!”

Day 42: Big Ben has gone retro

Earlier today I had some time to kill between appointments, so I took a drive over to Michael’s Arts & Crafts with no plans to buy anything.

Oops!

I spent money. Not much, but a little dent in my bank account. I didn’t buy anything exciting unless you count new scissors and baskets for my bathroom which were on sale for 40% off! Cha-Ching.

Anyhow, while I was browsing the isles, I ended up by the stickers people use for scrapbooking. I stopped in front of the travel section and Big Ben stood out like a sore thumb. No, I didn’t buy the Big Ben sticker. Instead, I turned him into a thank you card design.

I know. Retro design again!

Yeah, yeah…I know it looks like the Paris and Sydney cards, but I told you before that some of these cards would probably end up in a series.

So now Big Ben has been added to the Retro Travel Thank You card design pack. In the series so far is Paris, Sydney, and now London aka “Big Ben”.

Remember, please contact me if you would like to purchase a Thank You card design. You will need to pay for the artwork and once payment is received, I’ll send a copy of the artwork that’s needed for the printer.

My Thank You card designs are not print–ready and cannot be download and used without my permission and paying for a license to use it. I have copyright protection under the law.

In the meantime, thank you.
