Cute Card Thursday

This week's Cute Card Thursday is all about Transportation










Our challenge this week is 'Planes, trains and automobiles' but of course we wouldn't restrict you to just those vehicles, absolutely any mode of transport is allowed!






















With summer just around the corner I thought that sailboat travel would be the way to go and knew the exact paper that I wanted to use, since I had the paper and the stamp out figured would make more than one card, I can always use cards.





I apologize can't remember the manufacturer of the paper, I bought it some time ago and can you believe am just now using it. Too much paper, too little time. The great stamp if from TAC. I kept the card pretty simple, I love to buy all sorts of wonderful embellishments and then don't use them, I have to work on that.




Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and will catch up with you on Scarpbook Sunday.
