Eclectic Ellapu July: Travel

Hello July! It's time for another month-long challenge over at  Eclectic Ellapu.  Thank you so much for playing along with us last month. So many gorgeous entries! I hope you'll join us again this month.

As always the 2 teams - Pinks and Purples - are playing together, but they have own themes. The Pinkies are going places with a "Travel " theme and the Purplies are having fun with "Favourite Holiday".

My "Travel" themed card showcases this cute little Scooter by Hot Off The Press. I ordered this stamp back in April 2013 because it reminded me of the hours of fun Snoopy and I had riding together. Sadly the stamp arrived a week after Snoopy died and I haven't been able to look at it without breaking down ... until now.

I wanted to make a fun, bright, summery card and this pattered paper from Fancy Pants Beach Babe 6x6 pad fit the bill.  

Here's a close up of the image, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos. The sentiment is stamped with VersaFine Satin Red. I stamped the grass with Memento Bamboo Leaves and added a few more blades with Faber Castell Polychromos. Snoopy would have loved to ride on this Scooter.

  8. Oh, haha, the sentiment made me laugh! This is just too cute and the coloring is fantastic! I am so sorry about Snoopy. I understand the pain of the loss of a pet. We lost our Savage back in 2007 and I swear there are times, I can still here the pitter patter of his paws as he's running to greet me at the door when I come home. Thanks for sharing and joining us at Inspiration Destination. Hope to see you again and good luck!

Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Have an awesome week!
