Leaving for Surinam in a couple of hours!

Well I can't sleep. Too excited maybe .... My daughter and I will drive to Schiphol, our airport, at 12.00 o'clock. Departure is at 16.00. Then we'll fly for eight hours. Our arrival will be at the J.A.Pengel Airport at Zanderij (name of the place). My niece will pick us up and we will drive to the main city Paramaribo. I intend to stay for two and a half weeks. I love to see the clouds and when leaving/arriving seeing the buildings, trees from above. Before my journey I had to finish four art journal pages, which I have. Love the prompts and it is such a challenge every time again. I did stumbled, but I finally have all pages ready. Two already sent to the USA to two partners. The second pair of two pages will be sent later when we know who to send to.

Already sent; pages of the Art journal page swap - December I hosted on swap-bot.
Prompt 1: How do you spend your Christmas?
Media used: acrylic paint, Cricut Expression, 3D die cut, wooden starts, stencils.

Prompt 2: We wish we had more time.Decorate you page illustrating or journaling about time; days, hours, minutes ....
On this page I used an image of sweetpeastamps and coloured it with acrylic paints. The clock is a rubber stamp from rubbernecker; the dots is a foam stamp from an unknown brand. It sure is a race against time, these days .... and it is just the question 'how we manage time'.

I promised youngest daughter (well, she is fifteen) to make her a birthday card, she can send to her aunt. Since I can't sleep I started the card. The challenge is from mojomonday. The challenged closed before I could finish my card, but it's about the challenge. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart. For me the challenge was to create a card without image. Love it!

I brought the inside of the card to life with a sentiment and some cute flowers:-)
