Art Journal Challenge #13


"What's on your mind?" is this weeks prompt at Emily's site. Well, that wasn't a hard one this week, the first thing that was on my mind this morning, was doing my written test to get my Canadian Drivers License. And the second thing....... yes, 20 more days and mom's coming! So, I printed out a traffic sign of an airport direction, used one of my 100.000 fonts for the word Toronto Airport, just liked this one a lot, and another one for the journaling on the back of the card.
And all this was done in a very, very frustrated state of mind. Cause I went to the Driving Test agency, and I was told that I could NOT do the test, because......... I DID NOT HAVE AN ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF MY DUTCH DRIVERS LICENSE!!!! They should have told me that when I went there to ask what I needed, but no, that wasn't important enough I guess. So now somebody at a translating office is working on the translation, and hopefully I will get it soon, cause I only have 25 days untill my international drivers license expires! Telling this, I can't imagine that I was able to create a card:-)
Well, anyway, I did it again and am off to see what each and everyone created so far! Hopefully I can let you all know soon that I've got my license LOL

I hate that, when they leave out something vitally important. good luck with it. I love the colours on your card and the bits of ribbon at the side.

ooo wat een 'holen'(zeggen we hier steeds) daar zeg! Sjonge jonge wat een frustratie! Hoop dat het allemaal lukt voordat je rijbewijs is verlopen.
Enneh...hele mooie kaart. Heb je al iets om het in op te bergen of zweven ze allemaal los op je bureau (met andere woorden: laat eens zien??!!)
