It's a small World..



Hello my friends.
Today's post is going to be short and sweet. 
I have the worst headache.  I haven't had one this
bad in years.  It woke me up at 2:00 in the morning and
is hanging on.  I am so tired but really can't sleep. 




Enough of my whining.. You did come here for that.
Here is the card I made this week for 



Kirsty is our Hostess this week and the theme is
IT'S A SMALL WORLD..
All you need to do is add a map to your project.  



As you can see I added a real map to my background. 
I just love the image I used also. I got it from Digital Paper.

To get all the details on this challenge you can hop on over to
City Crafters Challenge Blog.  If you play along you have a chance to
win a prize from Kirsty's etsy shop.. 



Thanks so much for stopping by.

Till next time my sweet friends..

Hugs~

Love your map on your card base, Linda, and your card is so fun! I know about headaches, hope yours gets better soon. the only good thing for me when I have a bad headache is that the next day I know my brain is going to be over run with crafty ideas. Feel better soon, my friend and hopefully your Tuesday will be a good one.
