the reward...

Yeah, I love to combine challenges! And the Inspiration Challenge on SCS and the 365 Card Day 237 Stamp on a Card and Envelope matched up perfectly tonight. When I saw Leah Giberson's series of travel trailer posters, I knew I had to give it a go using stamps and paper to recreate her wonderful work.




I used the Inkadinkadoo clear Travel Trailer set for my envelope flap, a border stamp of 5 different trailers and the largest trailer for the card. The lawn lounge is a Stampa Barbara image that I cut down from the chaise I used in my 'As the leaves turn'... card to make a chair. It is always nice when a stamp can serve double duty. If you are interested in the specifics of products used on
this card, please go here.


There is a wonderful blog that has showcased the Sisters on the Fly. They are a group of women who have restored travel trailers and have joined together to celebrate a love of fishing. Check out this blog posting, you won't be sorry! Or how about the 'We Can Do It, Ladies'. These gals have me thinking...maybe we could start a group of stampin' artists pulling up trailers all 'round the country. I can think of only one real limitation.....space for all the stuff we need to create!

Happy Weekend, dear readers.

Well, I must say I definitely agree with the sentiment on this card - we need to take time to enjoy where we are instead of being so focussed on arriving that we miss everything along the way. The little awning on the caravan is just dinky, and I love the way the grass looks as if it is blowing in the wind.
