When I first saw Lewis & Trudy’s Wild Ride I instantly paired it with Are We There Yet? and envisioned the little car driving on a road made of saddle stitched ribbon – thinking it looked like a road. When I looked I thought the Maple Lane House would work nicely with these two images as a “We’ve Moved!” card. For something a little different I scored only part of the card base and cut around the top of the roof and treetop with a craft knife so it would stand out from the top of the card. For the grass I simply took two strips of wild wasabi and cut into it with a scissors (grass is a great way to use up green scraps!) and pulled out a few blades with my hands for dimension.

This card is just too cute! I love the way she used ribbon for the road – I never would have thought of that. Great coloring – the little red car just pops off the road. It’s nice too that she carried just a little accent of red on the house as well. Great job!

    Too cute! Love how you created the road and grass!

    *** My apologies to all the design team members for not having left comments on your creations lately. I haven’t been living at home or had access to a computer very often since April, on account of the rental building I live in catching on fire. The good news is that my Eat Cake Graphics stamps and other stamping supplies escaped damage… phew!!! I miss seeing all of your creations on a regular basis and hope to be home and able to visit more often by December. Keep up the GREAT work everyone!!! ***
