Happy Camper and 2D maps!

Hello to everyone!
Now that the weather is warmer and the sun is out it makes me think of popping up our camper for another year of.. Well... Fun! This is the third year we have owned our camper and we just love it. I have a camper stamp (of course) and thought it would be a perfect time to use for the Crafty Creations Challenge.

I stamped the road map with the soon-to-be colored road panels; leaving the bottom white per the sketch. Colored the panels and mounted them on dark brown CS. Then stamped and colored the camper then added a banner behind the image. I added a brown stripe for a division between the map and white space. Assembled the card added the sentiment cut it into a banner, adhered it and added a dot embellishment. DONE!

Well here it is I hope you like it.

A road map to celebrating good times!
Card size: A2- 4.25" x 5.5"
Left the bottom white per the sketch.
Do you remember 2D navigation systems called maps!! You know the ones, you unfold them upside down and try to figure out where in the $%&* you are; and when it is time to refold well... Good luck with that. It usually ends up something like a wad in your glove-box along with 5 other state maps you also couldn't refold.

Well I love maps and thanks to my eighth grade Geography teacher I DO know how to refold them. Thank you Mr. George!

So when I saw the road map stamp from Inkadinkado I just had to have it. The blocks of color could mean anything from neighborhoods, parks, rivers, highways, to industrial property, who knows. I just let my imagine run a muck.

The camper is a perfect compliment for the center image of this card.  Road trips and campers go hand-in-hand. I am sure at one of you have a story to tell about road-trips. In the end however, it is all worth it because you have excellent family time and memories to recall for years to come.

Well that is it for me.. I hope you have a good night!

Take care and all the best,

LOL! I remember maps. Still use them. It's easier to pull out a map, turn it upside down and argue about which direction we're headed then to fiddle around with the GPS! SO much more fun, don't you think?! LOVE this card of yours... brings back so many happy memories of driving about. A perfect celebratory card, I have to say. Have a fun day, Shawna!
hugs, Asha
