Chrissy used the lovely Buddy Time by Coosty Creations. A horse is transport of course!


Willeke used Drivers Ed by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps and made a pretty easel card.


I used Boy Riding Skateboard from StitchyBear Digital Outlet Store by Ken Benner and Distress Markers and water colored the background. 


For my trip I made a suitcase, and I used this great digi BSA Silhouette
from our sponsor Stitchy Bear Stamps

For my project I made a multifolded card with the beautiful digi "Air Balloons" provided by our sponsor. I used a blue color combo to make this card masculine. 


  Hi everyone! For this week, for my project I made a lovely card with the beautiful digi 
"Bride Carriage", from our sponsor.  In this card, I remember the arrival of a bride at her wedding. A loving way to use the means of transport .

I thought that Designated Driver by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps would be perfect for a thank you card for my Dad who has driven us to hospital a couple of times recently for appointments. The drink part of it doesn't apply but I liked the ticket so used it anyway. My Dad might be offended - he isn't bald!
Designated driver is a pack that comes with the digi of the driver, two or three different background papers, I have used one of them here, and several different tickets.

Surprise - it's an easel card! I used ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, with some cute little car buttons to make it stand up, and die cut the word "thanks" with IO dies.

I just want to say I´m sorry, I´m late. I was at the hospital for the weekend. So, for this time I made a card using the Transportation Stamp Pack from our generous sponsor  Sitchy Bear Stamps. In addition to stamp I used Distress Ink from Tim Holts in some different colors and a metal embellishment.
