Road Trip!

Once again, I've been stamping with the Rubber Soul Stick People set. There's so many fun images in this set that I just have to try them all! This little gal is ready for a roap trip. And so am I! Well, actually my road trip isn't til the first weekend in November but I'm counting down the days. There are six of my scrapping friends who rent a swanky hotel conference room with one adjoining room(we don't sleep much)...then we scrapbook from Friday til Sunday. I think we even booked the room for Thursday this time too. We go twice a year and it's about the only time I scrapbook. I get about 30 or so pages done and have the BEST time!!

So back to this fun card, I thought it would be fun to send one to the girls going scrapping with me. They'll get a kick out of it. I used bright, fun colors from Memory Box and some Rubber Soul patterned paper. To color the image, I used Copic markers that closely matched the colors in the patterned paper. I cut and embossed the image with a Spellbinder's rectangle die and then matted that on a cut and embossed scallop rectangle die. The embossing on the shapes really adds a lot of texture without having to add extra layers.....love that!! To finish off the card I added orange Stickles to the girl's dress, velvet Ric Rac and two Amuse Twinkle Stickers.

Tip of the day: I highly suggest at least a yearly road trip with your girlfriends. It's so refreshing, fun and inspiring. Do you have road trips planned? I'd love to hear about them.

Darling card! I take two road trips a year with my stamping friends. . .in April we rent a house on the beach in Cannon Beach, Oregon, and in July we head north to a wonderful home on Lake Cavanaugh in Washington. Both locations have a great set-up for the six of us to stamp for three glorious days! I totally understand your excitement for your trip in November.

I love this card! It has a fun "aire" to it. I go on a girls weekend every year at the end of January. We are over the Christmas hustle and bustle and we stay at a hotel on the beach (being in Fl, it's not usually cold). Last year I did a whole year of scrapbook pages! Have fun

Oh yeah, road trip soon! Every year my best friend and our hubbies go to the NASCAR races in TX in the fall - this year, NEITHER of our husbands can go; but that isn't stopping us! We head out on a Friday and return on a Monday; we're going to have a blast!!!

Yes, I DO have a road trip planned! Going with a friend next weekend from Friday until Sunday to a stamping/scrapping retreat at Camp Utmost, a Christian camp in the Montana mountains about 2 hours from my home. I've never done this and I am NOT a scrapper....hope to get some stamping, coloring,assembling, etc., done and maybe a few scrapbook pages. I only know the gal I'm going with so am looking forward to making new frienships!

Love the card, and your blog!
