So my family just went on a road trip and left me behind, so I thought I'd make a fun card for my husband as way of saying "congrats you survived", mind you he's been home for 4 days and I'm just now getting around to making that card, but you ladies know that when inspiration hits you you go with it right?  I've used the 365 Cards sketch and the 1950's theme (b/c they were traveling in a 1957 vintage trailer, click here for a photo), the Play Date Cafe colors and a border punch for CAS-ual Fridays "getting edgy" challenge.

 

Materials: Paper Source trailer stamp, Recollections Clear Stamps Road Trip sentiment, Impression Obsession background stamp, Reminisce Unwritten patterend paper, Core'diantions grey card stock, PTI cloud dies, Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder, Fiskars chevron stripes border punch, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress ink, Fiskars corner rounder punch

You just described my ideal vacation: time alone in my very own home. I love to go places, but I would REALLY love to be able to craft and clean to my heart's content without disruption. Hope you enjoyed the time!
