Well, my suitcase is all packed and I am ready to return to Oregon again.  This time I will hopefully buy the lot, hire the contractor and have them start building!  But before I leave, I HAD to finish this card for a very special BFF who is going to Italy for her birthday!  We had planed to go together a few years back, but then life got in the way, lol.  She wanted me to go this trip, but of course I can't because of getting my house built.  But I have no doubt that I WILL make it there some day!

The stamp of the little gal is by Little Blue Button Stamps and is called "Miss Lilly Reporter".  I colored her with my Copics.  The background map I found online and printed it.  I love the "old world" look of it.  I also found the banner on line and then added the word "ciao" to it in my paint program.  I cut it out and raised it and my image with pop dots.  I inked the edges of the map and there we have it!

 I hope I have lots of good news to tell you when I return in 10 days.
 Wish me luck!
