Fast or slow, which would you prefer?

 I mean transport of course. Which do you prefer good old 2 feet totally your control, 2 wheels pedal power or with a motor, a speedy little 4 wheel job or a slower one like a tractor or soar through the air on metalic wings?

Well now I have you thinking why not find out your transport stamps and join us again over at Creative Craft challenges for our latest challenge with the fab sponser of the crafty pad with this great stamp as a prize.

We had a great response to our last challenge , lets see if we can top it, after all transport isn't just for boys as we girls are after all scientifically proven well by insurance companies to be safer drivers. Now it could be a birthday card for a biker or a little boy who loves his diggers or someone passing their driving test. I myself couldn't decide so I made 2. My first is a card with a safe 2 wheels well if I were on it maybe not as my sense of balance isn't always that brilliant on 2 feet and that's when I'm sober! I love the sentiment on this card and thought it would make a great encouragement card, just not sure who is in need of it just yet, but time will tell as we all sometimes need an encouraging word. The stamps are from the darkroom and make fab toppers. I sprayed the background with moonglow tawny turquiose for extra shimmer but unfortunately it doesn't show up very well. The little flowers are from M&S party glitter I just love the colours.

I would like to enter this card into te following challenges;-

Colour create-ivory,duck egg blue and one other, optional shabby chic

The 2nd project is for my son who recently took over responsibility for his own finances with a little supervision, we all have to start sometime. He saw my cheque book cover and asked if I'd make him one. He is mad about the film 'Top Gun' and a couple of years ago asked if I could have a stamp made of 2 fighter planes in a dog fight, he found me the picture and I found someone who could make it for me. Sadly they nolonger do this and as yet I haven't found anyone else who does , so now when he asks for a specific image I just have to try and find a stamp , not always easy.

So now he has a bank activity book and is as happy as larry as the saying goes for now anyway. The fighters I stamped on acetate with stazon and filled with crystal laquere and then just glued them down. The cover itself is easy to make but if anyone wants to know how I'll try and explain, just let me know.

This project I would like to enter into the following challenges;-

Polka Doodles-use acetate or vellum
Paperplay-Bon Voyage(planes, holidays? or even bin voyage to money does it work?)
Papertake weekly- something old my stamp, something new the cheque book holder, something borrowed the design from the original from the bank and something blue the paper.

So come on hop on over and be inspired by our talented design team and then show us all your fabulous entries and you could win a prize.
