In the words of the late Joan Rivers, "can we talk?"
Today's card is for the 3M (3 Musketeers) card group,
I'm so lucky to also have this stamp set
because I had to stop and start ...
and stop and start!
This card, unlike this sweet bear driving, was just all over the place :/
It about drove me crazy ...
no pun intended!
This is Avery Elle's Birthday Bus!
They look like they are heading to a fun party ~ I sure wish I was going along!
(Barb, Jeanette and myself) are the 3M
where we have a mystery image and then create a card.
This stamp was Barb's choice for February.
Most of our families greatest adventures,
and the most fun we've ever had,
were always when we did things things 'on the fly!'
I'm a planner.
I'm an itinerary girl.
But we love love LOVE spontaneity, too!
that's just how my card was created, too :)
I had ideas.
I made backgrounds with green grass and blue skies.
And some fancy clouds.
I had a sunset with rays and used about 4 different stencils.
Nothing. looked. right.
Finally, almost at my wits end,
I spied a few tiny pieces of stamped images
from another card I'd worked and something just clicked!
Not part of my original design
but I added on some tiny pieces from the stash.
The sky and grass are designer paper from Echo Park
and I've added a fun die cut road for them to drive on.
I added it in reverse to the inside of the card
because hopefully the party will keep going!
And here's the inside:
I'm super happy with how this one came out ~
after it all clicked into place!
I think this party bus filled with cute critters will have many adventures.
Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
