Card #2 from the highway

A little bit of stamping in the truck while Joe drove. A little bit of glitter glue administration to the stamped image.

I took Shelly’s advice and cut up some card stock for card bases before leaving the hotel. Joe took this photo.

The dashboard looked like a good place to let the glitter glue pieces dry.

Having arrived to the hotel in Lost Hills, California I set up shop and this is now Card #2.

I’m liking this color combination. Still on the look out for the next color challenge so keep watch.

Have fun crafting and enjoy your slide down to the weekend 🙂

Color challenge and Card #1 from the highway.

Here is the color challenge. Use pink, orange, and white. The inspiration is a dinner plate I saw at Casa de Fruta in Hollister, California.

Here is my first card made in a hotel room during my “Day Job”. I’m not over the moon with it but it is cute. The Colorbok paper is really not suitable for card stock – in my opinion. It is not heavy enough for my liking, but it is doing well for now.

A little tip. Wal-Mart doesn’t sell acrylic blocks for stamping. I purchased an acrylic wallet size clear frame and used it to do my stamping. It works 😀

I thought I was buying a black ink pad from the Studio G bin at Wal-Mart. I have no idea what color it is, except I do know it isn’t black.

Here is my “haul” from Wal-Mart plus Joe asked the hotel clerk where a craft store was nearby. He found a Michaels and I got a couple things from there.
