Roll with it!

***I'm running a Blogaversary Challenge with a chance at a $35 Gift Certificate to My Favorite Things - be sure to check this post for all the details***

I'm sure you've seen, but just in case, did you know that Kim Hughes has started her own company - Paper Smooches? I have so missed her fabulous and fun illustrations, and I'm just thrilled that she's set up her own shop! Yeah KIM! Let me just say that Kim has the fastest shipping *ever* I couldn't believe how quickly this set arrived in my mailbox!

I was completely giddy when I saw this newly released set titled Spiffy Scooters. Did you know that my husband and I actually own a Vespa scooter? We used to get lots of laughs from our friends about it, but now with gas prices being fully out of control, you can bet that this little baby is going to get a workout once the weather improves here in New England. My husband can commute for two weeks on TEN, count them TEN dollars of gas. Nice.

Though, I don't imagine he'd be too thrilled with me if I had it painted like this.....

I'm looking forward to the return of "scooter" dates this summer. Though, this summer he might listen to me that he can't park it on the sidewalk. Guess who was right about the fact that we'd get a ticket for doing that. I'll admit, I laughed pretty hard over winning that argument.

The image was paper pieced with the new Echo Park Springtime papers, and I stamped the clouds onto vellum for a soft cloud. After all, you don't want to be stuck out on the scooter in the rain, right?

LOVE this Joanne! And yeah, I could just imagine my husband if I had a scooter and painted it like this. heheh. I haven't used vellum in so long. It's perfect for this kind of thing. You've inspired me to try to remember to pull it out next time.
