AJC #41


This week's prompt: magic carpet...if you had a magic carpet RIGHT NOW...where would you ask it to go?

Well, as most of you who do this awesome challenge know after 41 weeks (can you believe that, 41!!!!!!), I'm as Dutch as can be, and moved to Canada last year June, to keep my DH happy, cause he was homesick! (the things you do for your DH!)

So........ if I had that magic carpet right now... it had to fly quite far........ take me to Holland please!

This week the journaling is on the front, I found a map of Holland in WordClipart, washed it out, and printed it on plain copy paper, printed the journaling over the picture, used my Dymo and cried my heart out........(don't get me wrong, I love living in Canada,..... just miss every loved one very much......)



On the back of the card is a postcard I found with the 11 cities in Friesland, the province I lived in..... Cut it up and just clued it on the card.




Ok Emily, next week, please give us a prompt that doesn't make me homesick???!!!!

What a great card!

I grew up in California and now live in Massachusetts (my husband grew up here so we moved to make him happy...much like yourself!) so I know how you feel. It's hard to be away from family and friends like that!

beautiful card you make. I hope that your homesick is soon over.
I can tell you that the weather in Holland is today very sunny in that in Autumn. How is your weather?
A typical ducth question.

I know how ya feel! Although its a little easier for me to visit my family back in Utah, we make the drive from California all the time. Or family comes out here. But still, I don't get to see them everyday. Very nice card Marj! Is it ok to call you that? I feel like all of us on this challenge (even though we have never met) have a really good rappore with each other!
