Sunday Stampers - Week 142 - Route 66

Goodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you! Thank you all for the lovely entries last week... I think I have managed to catch up and get around to see all the entries.. if I haven't yet - I am on my way :O)) This week the theme is totally related to a certain visitor I have staying with me at the moment... well, it had to be something American - and Route 66 is very American isn't it? So... the theme is... NUMBERS. To join in with the challenge all you need to do is make a little something - be it an ATC, card, Tag etc, the choice is yours... add in some stamping and the theme and then leave a comment here for me with a link to the place you are showing your entry.. or you can email me with your piccie :O)) The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday February 26th 2011.



Soooo, I may have muttered a few times on here that I have a visitor staying... yesh indeedily, Ellen has travelled all the way from Baltimore, Maryland in the US of A to stay with us again... and this time I actually managed to get organised before she arrived and I made this shadowbox for her.




I have included some personal trinketty things in the design and I made some faux letterpress blocks for her initials... I used Alphabet Soup Grungeboard, some old wooden blocks and a few dabs of ... em...dabber!




Now, upon first inspection it doesn't actually look like there is any stamping on this piece... I can assure you there is... only a smidgin but it is there... the words in the Ornate Plate and underneath Mona it says art... honest, it does LOL




Anyways... that's all for now - I am scheduling this to publish at midnight 'cos I have some clean fingers that need to get all inky again... thanks for looking... TTFN

Helen said...

And with it being a shodow box, it won't take up too much space for Ellen to take it home (with all her stash shopping...)
It is fab - even with hardly any stamping. Gonna get my thinking cap on.
