Road Trip

First off I want to say I had a very weird thing happen today. I was sitting here in my craft room when all of a sudden the floor and chair I was sitting in started going up and down and my table was swaying back and forth! Yes, I actually was feeling the tremors from the earthquake that hit NY City today. I felt them all the way down here in South Carolina! Very strange for us! That said, this is what I have been working on today. My son's birthday is Sunday, so I wanted to make a card for him. He has a motorcycle and loves to hop on it and cruise. We'll see how much he likes that when winter comes! LOL! So I had this motorcycle stamp that I wanted to use. I am entering this card into two challenges. Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Travel and Top Tip Tuesday Masculine card. At Top Tip Tuesday we are to give a crafty tip and this is mine. To make a faux postage stamp, use scissors with a tiny scallop and cut around the edges with the scallops going out. Use a fine point felt pen and dot around the edges.

Sorry April! I was not concentrating and added the bit about adding a Top Tip - and that was after I'd read your Fab Top Tip about making a faux postage stamp - sorry! Great Tip - Thanks for sharing.

Very cute travel card. I especially like the faux postage stamp - very cool little element. So glad you didn't have any damage from the Virginia earthquake - must have been pretty scary! So happy you joined in the fun with our travel challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
