Welcome snarky peeps to a new challenge at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS! V is for Vroom - we want to see any kind of motor vehicle on wheels added to your projects. Edna is ready to burn rubber on her hog and hit the biker bars! LOL! Here's what I came up with:

 Here is the inside:

I've had this stamp for a number of years, and yes, this is the first time I've used it. The sentiment it comes with is good, but I was looking for something more....more. So I stalked jeep memes and found this:

Then I went about creating that 'muddy' background panel, using Becca's Distress Ink Dipping Technique. I used Iced Spruce, Shabby Shutters, Brushed Corduroy, and Gathered Twigs, making two passes in the inky mess on my craft mat. Once it was dry, it was a simple matter of printing out the sentiments on my computer and completing this otherwise CAS card. 

Now it's your turn to haul out those stamps/papers/stickers, etc featuring motorized vehicles on wheels and make something with them! Just be sure to link up at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers so we can admire it! While there, please do check out what my Snarky Sistahs and our Guest Designer, Jane, have made to wow you, and leave some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting!
