Animals on the Bus

Happy Monday – I’m here again with more Stamp of the Month artwork as promised.  I wanted to do something fun and different this week and maybe find a way to incorporate the Animal Greetings Operation Smile stamp set.

I thought and I thought and then it hit me…put the animals on the bus!  When my son was a little guy (he’s 25 now) he had several Richard Scary books – his favorite was Busy Town.  I can’t remember how many times we read it, but I remember all the animals in all the different vehicles so my card was born.

This card is a mere 3X6 – a sweet size for sticking in a backpack, briefcase or leaving under a pillow.  The Calypso Papers are surely getting a workout this month too.  It’s only available until the end of July so make sure you get what you might need to play with in the future.

Stamps

Don’t you see so many possibilities with this stamp set?  I’ll be back with another card next week, but with just 10 days left in June don’t let this stamp set get away from you!  You can add it to a qualifying order for just $5…why not order yours today?

Featured Friday #1

Happy Friday…I’m hoping that you’ll like this new feature that I’m bringing to my blog.  I decided to post on Friday’s so that you might take a chance to play along over the weekend.

If you’ve been following my blog for long you’ll know that I love fun folds,  so I’m going to take Fridays to showcase cards that are everything but ordinary!  Some will be easy to duplicate like today’s and some will be a little more detailed.

Do you recognize the papers from the  2″ strip at the bottom – it’s from the Charlotte papers and instead of cutting off the zip strip I left it attached.  I thought the little moose which I colored with Water Color Pencils and our Blending Pen fit perfectly in the half circle opening. The Animal Greetings stamp set benefits Operation Smile and has the cutest animals and pun sayings this one says I MOOSE you very much.  I framed it with one of the frames from Holiday Tags and popped it up with some 3D foam tape.  I found a couple of hearts and an arrow that I hadn’t used in the Charlotte Complements to finish off my card.   I found the instructions here.

I appreciate you stopping by…if you decide to play along leave me a comment with a link to your post…I’d love to see what you did.
