Beep, Beep!...Just because...

My best friend Joanne is an extremely talented paper artist. She inspires many, including me. She's very hard working and dedicated. She has been working towards creating a greener household for herself and her family. One of the many things that she and her husband do is try to utilize their Vespa scooter around town to save on gas and pollution. It's great and I applaud their efforts!

I found this vintage sticker with what else...but...a VESPA! and I knew that it had to go to Jo!! I waited to post because I wanted to make sure she received it in the mail before I put it up. I didn't want to spoil the surprise.

I did this as a postcard style so on the back is a piece of PTI white cardstock (if you haven't purchased this yet...you MUST! it's outstanding!)

I was really happy with how this turned out. And Jo did too!! Love you babe!!

I hope that everyone is having a very creative weekend!!
