Jingle Belles Text Me

Happy Monday, peeps!  I'm sharing the card I originally made for last week's Paper Players challenge, but I forgot one of the!  But it was still a cute card, so I am going to share it today.  It uses papers from the same MME pad but it uses a subway-style sentiment stamp I've had for a few years from CTMH, which makes it perfect for the Jingle Belles "Text Me" challenge!!  Here we go:

I used the Fab Friday sketch:

and I used some Red Glimmer paper and Silver Foil for my banners, adding some stars randomly:

inside and out!  The sentiment on the inside is from Concord & 9th's Joyful Noel, diecut with a Pretty Pink Posh stitched die:

It all went on a Blushing Bride card base!  Thanks for popping in today!

Over the weekend, we drove from PA to northwestern NC to buy a truck for John!  He's really fussy about the kind of truck he drives so when he saw it on line, he jumped at the chance.  It's a stick shift, which is hard to find, most everyone wants automatic!  We left at the ungodly hour of 2:30 am to beat traffic around Baltimore and DC but of course, we did hit it on the way home.  Yuck!  Here is Mr Photogenic getting ready to drive it home:

I also loved this sign from inside the little used-car dealership:

along with cool photo from 1955 in Myrtle Beach!  

All my full-time working years were spent at dealerships, so it was like walking down memory lane!  Thanks for popping in today!

Cute card....very different...Different is good. I am really liking pink for Christmas and Aqua/Teal. Men and their vehicles. What a trip. Where in NC? I am in NC. Bet John is out running the roads in his new baby today.

Darling card - love that sentiment stamp, and its subway style!
But today, I am in envy of your road trip - traffic or not! Nice truck, John!!

Great way to feature all of that text. I'm loving the pink and red combo and the little touch of silver. Good luck with the truck!

Love this, LeAnne - such a great card! All my fave holiday thoughts in one place, lol. Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

Oh that truck is wonderful! I miss driving a stick! And the place is very cool! And your holiday sentiment card is perfect!

I like the candy canes in the background, this is festive! Road trip, I could use one of those! Congrats to John on the new wheels!

That sketch is perfect for showcasing that text stamp - love the pink and red festive colour combo too. Hope John is having fun in his new truck!

Amanda Mertz said...

What a great stamp to show off with our sketch! And great colors even if you forgot the black *wink*! You might have passed right by me on your way to NC! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

Really like that text style LeAnne and I also have a soft spot for pink and red together, so I'm a great fan of this card! Love your photos. John looks how I would if I'd been up since 2.30 am! What a great sign in the dealership and oh my goodness, the Myrtle Beach photo is just gorgeous! Vicky x
