Catered Crop: I am HERE!!

This week at Catered Crop, we are having a Map It Recipe Swap.

I decided that I needed to go shopping for this one.  I just had to head over to Archivers and I picked up map paper and compass charms.  I knew that I had sailboats and pirate ships and race cars - all of which could go with a map.

Then I had a brainstorm - I don't have those very often.  I am good at following trends and getting ideas from other brilliant crafters, but in general, if a challenge says "map", my card has a "map"!!  I saw a set of stamps with little houses that looked like they were drawn by a child - and a whole different type of map popped into my head.

Dear Santa, I am HERE!

Dear Santa close

This is most definitely a very important type of map!!

I hope to see you play along!

Wow, you are brilliant! I felt that I needed to buy a map paper for this challenge, too. But I ended up with map paper while you came up with a clever idea. You taught me a lot with one card. Hugs, May

This is so incredibly creative! Maybe the best map ever. It reminds me of the map the little girl draws in "Arthur Chrismas" (love that movie). It's definitely one of my favorites. (P.S. Thanks so much for your sweet comments. You are so kind!)
