Default WT837 ~ Who's Got the Map? ~ {03/25/2021}

Happy Thursday to you all.
It's Sabrina here as your hostess this week, and to commemorate the fact that in 1584 Walter Raleigh renewed Humphrey Gilbert's patent to explore North America, we are doing a little map-reading today, so to speak.

To quote Wikipedia - the earliest surviving maps include cave paintings and etchings on tusk and stone, followed by extensive maps produced by ancient Babylon, Greece and Rome, China, and India. In their most simple form maps are two dimensional constructs, however since the age of Classical Greece maps have also been projected onto a three-dimensional sphere known as a globe. The Mercator Projection, developed by Flemish geographer Gerardus Mercator, was widely used as the standard two-dimensional projection of the earth for world maps until the late 20th century, when more accurate projections were formulated. Mercator was also the first to use and popularise the concept of the atlas as a collection of maps

Old maps, stamped maps, or we have TLC609 from October 2016 which was the Turkish Map fold, take your pick and create your card.

Personally I'm an old-fashioned map fan, even in these days of Google Maps. I love planning our routes when we go camping, and marking the pages in the book to track the longer journeys. We used to have a wonderful National Geographic program with all the maps from the magazines but alas, it stopped working on any operating system after Windows XP . And I still have a lovely wooden jigsaw of a 16th c map of the world, with whales and sailing ships in the oceans. We had it when we were in our teens growing up, and there is only one piece missing even after all these years and house moves.

Once you've found you place on the map and created your card, upload it with the keyword WT837, and then come back and share a link here - that makes it easy for people to find your card .

Here's a link to our WT837 Who's Got the Map? gallery

Here's a link to my sample:
WT837 Beautiful World (front)

WT837 Birthday Treasure (inside)
​​​​​

If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, and one for this thread
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

As always, my thanks to the team members who have created some inspiring cards for you to enjoy: Lisa, Jayne and Cathy.

Maybe the question should be 'who can read the map???' I love maps. I think AAA still has what they call Trip-tiks, which are booklets that map out your journey and you can turn the pages as your journey progresses. It makes you feel like you're getting there, little by little.

This was so fun. I knew I had a piece of patterned paper that would work on my card.

Thank you, Sabrina for this challenge, I needed to make a masculine card and a map gave me the idea to make this card: https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/g...&ppuser=264729
