When we left home on our road trip this morning it was sunny and frosty, within 20 minutes we had hit a full blown snow storm!! Yikes!! Luckily we were in and out of that snowy mess by noon, but hit lots of rain throughout the day. So a good vacation day to be driving!
I discovered that YES I can make cards in the car!! Wahoo!! I was able to do some designing and play around with some new design tools I got in the mail yesterday. Fun, fun, fun. And I will post those cards, which aren't quite finished...(no gluing in the car,) later this week.
Today I become an official member of Muse Card Club blog. How EXCITING is that??? This is a very different challenge site, one which has it's members voting on the winner of each challenge. What a unique concept. I love being involved!!
Here is a picture of the inspiration card, created by Therese Calvird
For my card, I have drawn my inspiration from both the color palette of Therese Calvird card, and the fun glass of limeade, which made me think of vacation. And if you have been reading my blog you know I am on a ROAD TRIP to California! YIPEE!
So the theme of my card is a" Have a great time on your vacation" card.
The basic card is made of Michael's card stock and inked with Tim Holtz distressed ink Blue Jean. The palm tree is a little foamie which has been sitting in my craft area forever...and it fit on this card perfectly!! It, and the bling are dollar store finds. The stamp is from a Stampin Up set. The scallops were cut from a 12 x12 bling sheet purchased at the dollar store. It happened to be the right color and added the perfect effect I was wanting.
