A Spoon Full of ... Vroom Vroom!

LOL... today's challenge at a Spoon Full of Sugar is travel. Now that can be taken a lot of ways and we leave it open to you... whether it is something you travel in or a place you travel too.

I decided it was time to make a "guy" card. And with all that I had put together for this card, it became a scene card and I had no room for any pattern paper.

I started off with my "travel"... this is"COOL CAR" from Alota Rubber stamps.. HOW cool is it? I just love it! And it is perfect for this Cool Edwin from Magnolia don't you think. Oh I can't tell you how much fun I had making this one.. it was so much like playing with paper dolls.
I also used the brick wall from Magnolia and the graffiti "Happy Birthday" - the clouds are a stamp I purchased a few years ago at a LSS Garage Sale, I don't know if I have ever used it. It says it is a Stampscape from KJN ... I used really light blue so it is hard to see in the photo, but looks perfect in person. Now I used one other stamp. It is from Clear Stamps I believe... it is the license plate ... How wonderful is it??

The only other things I used was an EK Success border punch, the forest. A piece of cork for the dirt road, and then for just some added fun... a giant bling for the head light on the car!! I just love that part.

I hope you like my "cool" scene - I had a lot of fun making it. And Hubby really likes this one -

Now I also hope that you will vroom on over to A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge the DT traveled all over with their cards - and again this week there is a prize... so please join us!

Today is a special shopping day - MIL and I are meeting my Mom and Sister and the three kids to get each of them some new school clothes. This is a tradition I started way back when the oldest started kindergarten. Now years later... we still meet towards the end of the school year and get them a few fun outfits for school. We all have been so busy this year so it just kept getting put off each week.. I thought we had a few more weeks.. at least a couple. But uh no.. they start school next Monday!! Where did summer go? So today is the day... wish me luck...MIL, my MOM and three kids...

OH one more thing... I am so happy for my nephew and well the whole family. There is a non-profit organization that helps make wishes come true for kids that have special challenges in life. Like my nephew Tagen. Dream Factory... a wonderful group of people. Well Tagen was chosen as this years child to make a wish.. and his wish... to go to see Micky's Playhouse! Yes.. Dream factory is sending the whole family all five of them for a week to Disney World! And even better.. they leave on his birthday October 2nd! I am sooo happy for them! You can see a photo of Tagen and his Dad on the Dream Factory web site HERE

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
