A Journey...

I have to admit I went crazy when Diane Daydreams Designs 
released a new series of images called "On the Move."
I love Woodies - and the set had a number of them and all kinds of cool 
travel accessories. I paper pieced my Woodie with paper I have been holding 
on to that looks like wood and then colored and distressed the car.  
It is now all ready for a road trip!
