Goin' Places

As one of the design team members, I can sincerely tell you that we are always thankful for YOU - the ones who come to the blog to check out what we've been making. I hope you are inspired every single time you stop by the blog. For today's card I'm making the very first card I've made with the Raisin Boat Big Rig Party stamp set. Oh what a fun set it is!

Just look at it:



I envision making lots - and lots - of cards with that truck. It is a great stamp! And the companion pieces make it so easy to add graffiti, logos, and more to the truck itself. 

Maybe one of the reasons I like the truck so much is it takes me back to my childhood. No, my dad was not a truck driver. My dad was a Minute Man for Boeing and one of the traits of the job was we moved every 3-6 months all over the western half of the United States. Suffice it to say, I was a passenger in a car - A LOT! And the scene in front of us was often the semi rigs that traveled the roads. Truckers were a great group in those days. On more than one occasion, we had truckers help us out in a bind. So I respected them and the work they did, even as a small child.

In honor of those memories, 
I created this card:



Those truckers were indeed going places and it seemed as though I was following along. LOL!

It doesn't show up well in the photo, but I added some rhinestones to the round lights/reflectors on the back of the truck.



I also added some white and star brads to the night sky.




Enjoy your day - try to make time for some crafting! And head over to the SumMore Fun store to check out all the great stamps and products there.
