Moving Day Digital Stamps

Hello there,

Are you having a good long weekend? We went to the Fair, but the Fair wasn't there! We clued in when we saw circus trucks on the highway going in the opposite direction. We went anyway, had a nice lunch and stopped at a flea market on the way home. We had a good day!

I can't believe September is already here. Soon it'll be Christmas - which got me thinking. We have lived in the same house since 1992...count 'em, that's almost 20 years! My goodness time has flown by! When we moved in we had four little boys bouncing off the walls. Now, if they try to bounce off the walls they'd probably go through them!! (That's a reflection of big boys, not old walls!)

It's been a good little place for us, but I know that one day we'll probably move. I don't look forward to that day so much. Hubby and I aren't quite as strong as we used to be, and we've collected a lot of stuff over the years. If that day ever comes, hopefully the boys will help!  I don't see a move for us happening any time soon...but some of you may know someone who's moving.


I thought you might like the truck by itself, so you can add some leaves, or dirt, or whatever you want it to transport for you.

It's been a while since I've posted a 'regular' type of image. I'm working on a steampunk airship, and I have a hobby horse ready to go too, but that's for another day.

Digitals are available in my Etsy Shop: Carmensplace@Beyond the Fringe Crafts

Hope your Labour Day Weekend was wonderful!

Update!
I was so happy to receive an email from Sandy over at Sandy's Creations with a link to her card using this digital! I really love it. The colors are great on it and the card is so cute!! Thanks Sandy!!
Here is another adorable card by Margreet using this image. The post is Verhuizen/Moving. Her blog, called Margreet's Scrapcardsis definitely worth a boo--go have a look! She is a Dutch Cardmaker! Don't you just love the little key embellishment on this card? Perfect!!
Here's another from Krista at Krista's Paper Cafe! Isn't it adorable? I love the lock she's attached (perfect for a moving card), and she's done some layering on the rocking chair. Check out her blog link for more information on this card! Thanks Krista!


Blessings to you!
Carmen

  13. We got married and moved into our house 30 years ago. Ran out of storage in the house, now the barn is full! :) I'm thinking we will be leaving it all for our children to take care of.

    Thank you for the moving truck. Maybe I will use it as a hint to move stuff out.

  45. Thanks for including the "plain" truck too. It'll be perfect for my "Little Blue Truck" (kids' book) quiet book page. I'm planning on filling it with farm animal finger puppets (as per the story).

    1. I thought it might give people some more options. That's just great! Glad you could use it. I love the quiet time books and made some for my kids when they were young. 😀
