Road Trippin'

Despite the fact I woke up and ran out the door to hit the road yesterday, I still had time to make card for a SCS challenge before I left town. Amazing , eh? Yes, I have my priorities in order!

This card was made with a lot of different Hanna Stamps sets that I stamped and cut out and made into the little collage scene you see here. I used more sets than I can keep track of, the bird is from the Cats set, the pumpkins are from a Thanksgiving set, the jack o' lantern is from a Fall set. The apples are from a tecaher set. The leaves are from yet another Fall set.You get the idea, it was a lot of thought.

Todays SCS Challenge is to make something with monograms. This is for my friend Alla. Her husband is Alex and their four kids have names that start with the letter A as well. Not exciting, I know, but it works great for its intended useage. The border and letter stamps are from Papertrey Ink.
While I still had the rental car I decided to go to Nashville, IN yesterday and do some shopping at my favorite stamp store ever, PaperTrix. Why put miles on my car when I can put them on someone else's? I bought way too much and wrapped them up as a little birthday present to myself. Won't I be excited when I open my package tomorrow? I love when I get just what I want!
I'd love to show you photos from the beautiful artist community that is Nashville, but it was a bit rainy, cold and wet, so I did not take any photos. I simply did my shopping and got back on the road again. Maybe if you are nice I'll show you what I got in a day or two.

Very cute cards, I love the combination of all the different sets.

We went to Indiana on vacation a couple of months ago and I got to go to PaperTrix. Wow.
