the house that LOVE built-- paperbag

Wooty Woot!! It's Saturday...it is abit dreary outside though, but at least I'm not out in it today....thank goodness...our weather here has been tremendous...as I'm sure it has been where you live....so what better way than to stay inside and play......I made this card for the challenges over at Kenny K's (my favorite things) and Stamp Something (use a digi)......ENJOY!!!!!
I just loved this image from Kenny K (Carmen Electrafying) ...it reminds me of DH's secret fantasy of me coming home with a stamp like this....well he is just going to keep it a fantasy cuz it ain't happening....lol...not that I'm against these stamps, but my body is...things have already gone south, so this would not be a good addition...get my drift...lol....I paired it up with a Magnolia Haunted House...I added MS punches (favorite things...lol)...and on the gate punch I embossed using Distress embossing powder....I just love this stuff..it gives it a sandpaper feeling....paper from Making Memories.....colored everything in using distress inks.... and here (left inside of card) I used Dr. Strange Glove (use a digi) from BoniBleaux Designs.....lol...isn't he just dawling....I remember a cartoon with the Flintstones that there was a DR. Love or something like that...they were held captive in a castle with these flying dino's...anyone else remember that segment of cartoons they had on....or am I the only weird one.....I so can't remember where I got this saying from...sorry....
and here's the other side.....here I used rubber stamps from Stamp Scapes (fir row--tree trunk trio--crooked path)....and Inkadinkado (rolling hills--camper).....I masked the images as I stamped them to make a scene.....my thinking was that the main house was the waiting room and then when you went in to see Dr. Love you had to go down this pathway to the "exam room"....lol.....you can see the tag that pulls out from the right side pocket....
here's the tag...I just used another piece of embossed gate punch and made that into a handle to pull the tag out....added a brad that says love that was embossed to.....
the complete inside of the card.....
here's the tag...you can see the brad better with the embossing.....
*****************
Well that's all I have for this dreary Saturday......I hope your day is filled with sunshine and alot of smiles.....hugs from Charm City......

You seriously go all out when you make something and so do I but mine looks like something a three year old would bring back from nursery and yours looks like it took about a year to make. xx

hey Nancy,

I just discovered your blog and absolutely LOVE this card! I have been unable to track down the trailer stamp and was wondering if you had any further info or knew someone who is wanting to sell theirs.

Thanks so very much!
