Motorcross Birthday

Hello Friends and Stampers,

Rarely ever will I do a requested card, lol.   I'm really awful that way.  I have to follow the path of the mojo and sometimes when I am asked to do a card, it puts me in a creative block.  However, this time, I was asked to do a birthday card for a guy that really loves Motor cross.  So I went to Google to look up motor cross and I had an Ah-Ha moment.  Yes, indeed, I did have a stamp that would fit this perfectly.   It's called "Extreme Dirt Bike" and it's a retired Stampin Up stamp that I didn't even have mounted....oh yes, I have many of these unmounted, waiting for one day to feel the love and warmth of ink, lol.  I decided to get some Copic Markers out and my airgun and spray a bit of a background. 

These were the pictures I found and so they were my muse.  I also used Stampin Up retired Extreme Elements and the sentiment came from the retired set Best Dad Ever.   Oh I know, I hate to see the perfect images I need for something only to find out they are retired!  But sometimes you can find great retired stamps on SplitcoastStampers Buy/Sell.

What you can get still is the Memento Ink, the Copic Markers and the Celebrate Accent Die-Namics I used.   And a whole plethora of fabulous crafts supplies available at Loves Rubberstamps!

Thanks for looking and have a fabulous day!
