Merry Monday #125


Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Debbie challenges us to use some type of vehicle or transportation on our cards.


This was a fun challenge.  I have to admit this card took me forever to make.  I love this set from Papertrey ink but it takes quite a bit to get everything lined up on the buildings.   The gray was stamped first and then the black was stamped next.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get everything lined up "perfectly".  The car is actually a taxi cab.  I guess there are/could be red taxi cabs out there somewhere right?!   I have only ever seen yellow ones but I am sure they come in all different colors.  Not sure I have ever seen a taxi cab with a tree on top but I also don't live where there are any taxi cabs around.  Anyone?   Could be possible, right?  If you live in a city without a vehicle.  :) 

I hope you will join us this week to get a head start on your Christmas cards for 2014.  Christmas will be here before you know it.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

  15. LOL! I thought it was a VW bug (not a taxi) so I think a Christmas tree would look right at home on top of one of those! Cute card!
