TCP Tuesday 169--Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Well, this past weekend was a busy one. We did a little cleaning out in the garage, starting to make room for an added room that we will be building in there for my mom (hence the sale of that stuff from my blog post Sunday). Then yesterday, the girls and I did a bunch of running around, only to come home to our air conditioner saying it was 79 degrees in the house. In the hour afterward, it climbed to 84. That may not sound that bad, but when it's 106 outside, it's terribly uncomfortable! We called a friend in the A/C business and he came right over and got it back under control. Until it cooled off though, I had a better time sitting outside (in the heat that had come down to about 100, but at least there was a little breeze) with my neighbors last night, so no stamping got done.
Therefore, today my card for this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge 169 from The Cat's Pajamas is a little bit of a stretch since I didn't get to stamp anything fresh for this challenge...
I'm your Hostess with the Mostess and as always, I deliver a swanky STAMP challenge, so this week, we are hitting the road, taking to the sky, or heading out of space---in other words, getting the HECK OUT OF DODGE to escape the heat...
Use any form of TRANSPORTATION stamp from The Cat's Pajamas for this week's challenge! The bear from Catch My Drift here is being "transported" by these balloons off to a cooler climate! Not my first choice for a mode of transportation, but whatever gets you from Point A to Point B, right?
We "wheely" hope you get to play along with us this week in this challenge--there are LOTS of TCP stamps that will work for it, including several older sets. There are a few things to "steer through" while you play with us in this STAMP challenge, so be sure and visit ALMA'S blog HERE for all the details to get you headed in the right direction.
SUSIE Q-TIP: Don't forget to shine up those tires (or balloons in this case) with some Ranger Glossy Accents or Crystal Effects.
