House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #94-Travel

Anyway you can get somewhere works for this fun challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #94-Travel! 




You can use papers that have a destination theme, you could mail a letter that travels...there are lots of creative ways to join in this challenge. The challenge last week really had some shining examples of re-purposing a  HM stamp into a holiday stamp...so fun to see! I love it! Thanks to Sue Drees for the fun challenge this week!

I don't have too many stamps that have things like cars, planes or that sort of thing, so my mode of travel for this challenge is plain old running shoes! Hey, they get you where you need to go, don't they?  Actually, I had my daughter, Erin in mind when I made this card as she is currently training for one of those marathon races...crazy girl!

I used the sketch from Jen's SFYYT for April.  So far I have hit this challenge all year !  I also used some lucious DP from one my new 6 x6 paper pads, lilybeedesign Picket Fence.

My local  paper crafting store, Urban Papers, has some new goodies and I went down and picked up some of the coolest new paper pads, so you will be seeing some new pretty papers coming in my creations in the future! I stopped down there to look at wedding invite ideas (for Abby) on Saturday (after I already bought 4 new paper pads earlier in the week) and almost took some more new paper pads right out of the incoming stock room...they were awesome...I need a 12 step paper addiction intervention! (Jill, I promise I left them there....for now.)

I was going to give this card to Erin this weekend when they came to Gwamma's house for Easter, but little Cole got sick on the drive here so they had to cut the car ride short and turn around and go home. I was a sad Gwamma! Cole called me and said "Gwamma, I "frowed" up in the dar!" (translation, he threw up in the car LOL) Broke my heart that he was sick and also because I did not get to visit with the Newton family. Drats...double drats.....


I used a fun star embossing folder on the cherry cobbler paper. Matched nicely with the DP! I sponged with More Mustard (SU! color) around the checked paper and around all the blues as well. Muzzy and the 3 stars on mounted on dimensionals.

Here goes Muzzy running off into the sunset...

Come join us this week for this fun, fun challenge!
