Oh, the places you'll go...

I love Dr. Seuss! Always have, and always will. When the kids were young, we had Green Eggs and Ham, and other books totally memorized, as did the kids!



So, when The Angel Company came out with this travel set, and had a sentiment from Dr. Seuss included, guess who had to buy it?



I know that it was meant for me to have it, because as I was mounting and cutting it out, I was also blurfing, looking for challenges. (See, I can multi-task!)



Anyway, here I am cutting and mounting, and I open up Crafty Creations Challengs.
AHA! The challenge this week is "Transportation".
Okay, peeps, I've got it made in the shade for this one!



lol...
However, I was also in the camper, where there are very limited resources! I was able to stamp, but had little else to work with, so I stamped, and stamped and stamped!
Instead of coloring, I paperpieced the vehicles!
Found a scrap of ribbon in my bag, and made a road.
Voila, a transportation card, while sitting in a transportation vehicle.
This next two cards are made with a new TAC set as well, "Peace, Be Still". I love the gentle and serene nature of the stamps.
This is for Fresh Brewed Designs, where the challenge is simply "Brown". It is. I've not added a sentiment, as I'm not sure who's getting this one. I'll add it when I decide!
Last, here's a very simple card made for the following challenges:
For Fun Challenges: Black, White, and one other color
Simplicity: Black, white, and a spot of color

All righty, off I go. Have a bit of housework to do before heading to church for some great singing! Take care everyone!

I do not like Green Eggs and Ham, I do not like them Sam I Am, I will not eat them in a tree, I will not eat them on your knee. Okay, so I made that last part up, but once upon a time I knew the entire story by heart! LOL Gotta love Dr. Seuss!

Cute card PJ!
