     Many of our citizens, whether they are senior or otherwise, tend to travel or live in travel trailers.  Ahh, what a life!  I had an aunt and uncle that lived in one shaped like this, and colored pink,  for 6 months out of every year.  At first chill, they made the annual trek to the Florida Keys.

     This is my card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is called "Transport" this week.

     My stamp set used is from Art Impressions, as well as my little grass stamp, which is one of my "go to's".  I used a bright red card base, and designer paper from Crate Paper and their Farmhouse collection.  Coloring was done with Copic markers, and sponging was done with SU! inks.  My little clouds are die cuts from Memory Box.

     I have so many friends that are just about retirement age, and I am sure this card will come in handy for just such an occasion.

     I would also like to link this up over at ScrapyLand for their challenge #3, to use one of the listed die companies.  Thanks, Carol!  Mine is the puffy clouds from MB.

     Thanks for visiting.  The weekend will be here again before you know it.  Enjoy!

How did you get that picture of the hubs & pooch from my scrapbook? LOL It could have been us years ago when we had a dachshund that used to sit up just like this! Such a cute and fun card! We lived in a longer trailer like this for nearly 5 yrs, so what fun this card is!

You could link this up to the ScrapyLand challenge since you used a MB die! Just Sayin :)

The images on this card are too funny. I love the socks with the sandals and the doxie. And the clouds you sponged are fabulous. Great card. It will be perfect for a retiring friend.
