100th Post and Birthday Blog Hop Day #1

It's my 100th post!  Wahoo! 

Now, onto business...
The Birthday Blog Hop Day #1
If you have just hopped on the tour, please go to the first stop on the hop at Samantha's Cricut Creations (www.samanthascricutcreations.blogspot.com). If you have arrived from  http://gloriasgoofycraftspot.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place. Thanks for hopping by!


My Dad's birthday is Monday, August 1st, so I made this special shape card for him!
My parents "full-time" in a motor home and travel all over the country visiting any place they want!  It's quite the life!  So, I though he definitely needed an RV shape card.  Luckily I have the Camping cart, and had one readily available.  I cut the shadow (black), the body (cream) and then the shell (tan).  While I thought this looked good, it needed something else.  I hand cut the windows and headlights to added a little pop of color.  I also added two small mat silver brads for rear tires and one larger one for the front tire.  Lastly, I cut the star from Home Decor (twice) and added it to the back.  I thought the RV needed a little "birthday" pop!


 Thanks for looking and I love comments and new followers!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for another great birthday card!  



Now, head to Courtney at  www.craftingwithcourtney.blogspot.com!  She is so creative!  You will love her project!

  20. Great card. I'm sure your father will adore it. I just love the little "pop" you added. I wish I could hop in an RV and hit the open road.
