For the road...

One more for the road (literally!) before I hang up my stampin' hat for the night!  This one's for PTI's Make it Monday. This week the theme is stamping your own background paper with "non-background" building stamps!



This idea popped in my head when I saw the theme, I just didn't quite muster the energy to stamp those buses straight enough for my liking, though!  I guess the first morning of school must have it's bumps around the neighborhood.  Here's hoping for smooth sailing at our stop tomorrow!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Boy Basics: Truckin' It and Fruitful, Papertrey Ink
Paper:  PTI White, Black, Pure Poppy
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Barn Door and Tumbled Glass, PTI Fresh Snow, Copic Markers
Other:  Mat Stack 2, Pure Poppy Buttons, Divine Twine, Martha Stewart glitter

Sweet card, great coloring and works perfectly with Mat Stack #2! The little red buttons and black/white twine was a great little touch to bring out the red and black colors. You deserve a rest, you were very busy this weekend.
