Not All Who Wander Are Lost

It's not every day you find someone willing to travel through life with you.  When you do it's all kinds of special and magical and the journey is an adventure!  Yesterday my parents celebrated their 41st anniversary, and I just had to commemorate the occasion with a card.  They dated and married in the early 70s when hitchhiking was commonplace.  I've heard some of their stories and when I sat down to get started on this project I knew I'd be using Maps and Backpack from Saturated Canary.  I acquired these cuties last month from the lovely, generous, sweet, and talented Krista Smith after making a donation to Help One Now's Backpacks of Hope.  The images are now retired but I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to add them to my collection (and while making a small difference in the greater world too)!

The image is colored with Copics and cut using my Classic Squares Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  The layout is from Sketch n Stash (#130) and I had a lot of fun with this one!  Pretty much everything except the image is from my stash: papers (The Travel Stack from DCWV), acrylic stamp sentiments (Studio 112), silver dog tag (Making Memories), and long fasteners (Tim Holtz).  I also added a die cut Floral Ovals (also from Spellbinders) above the image panel.

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!  Wishing you many more miles together!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E31, E33, E34, E70, E74, E79, N0, N4, N6, G29, YG61, YG67, Y38, R24, R32, B00, B02, B04, B32, B34, B37, BG10, BG72).
