Retro Rubber Challenge #24...

Welcome to the new Retro Rubber challenge!  Summer has come to a close and the kids are back in school!  I know parents who are very excited by that!  Just in case you are missing summer - we are giving you a chance to relive your summer vacation!  Our challenge is to create a card inspired by travel!

Travel can be a lot of things – but you can’t go anywhere unless you have packed your bags!  So I broke out these fun suitcase stamps and created a pyramid of fall colors.  I also picked these colors because they remind me of the crazy colors that suitcases were in the 70's! rrcb travel 1 (513x640)

These suitcases are so much fun!  And the cosmetic case was the perfect place to put the sentiment! rrcb travel 2 (640x549)

Now it is up to you – go forth and be inspired by travel!  Hook up your super cool creations right HERE!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to pop in tomorrow!

Supplies:  CS:  PTI white and kraft.  SU! pumpkin pie.  Inks:  SU! old olive, pumpkin pie, and crushed curry.  Memento black.  Stamps:  PTI pack your bags.  Other:  PTI linen impression plate.

Jane, this card is so much fun! I must admit that I didn't know suitcases were so colorful in the 70's. My family never went anywhere, I think. LOL I am so glad that you will be back soon - right?! You are coming back, aren't you? You haven't decided to stay... What's your address? I am coming to take you back so you have wifi! Miss you, Pal!

LOL, Debbie! Jane, I think she just might be serious....

I remember hard shell suitcases and my green one was not nearly as cute as your green one! Now, who would have thunk to use suitcase images for a travel theme... Brilliant!! Great autumn colors... won't you be glad to be back where there will be fall colors???? :)

Jane, I LOL because I clearly remember my Grandmother and my Ma taking me away in the late 70's and I a red suitcase not dissimilar to the one you have stamped here. I have sent a link to your post to my Ma, saying 'remember the red suitcase' literally we had the thing for YEARS... I love how crisp your stamping is and the sentiment sounds like an invitation - should I start packing? LOL. Cx

Looove the suitcases! I have a suitcase stamp I am dying to use. Thanks for the inspiration! Great color scheme and stamping!
