Blog Hop Card

There is a lovely blog hop on It is to celebrate the move of Sir Stampalot to new premises. There is a fantastic prize and the opportunity to hop round some fantastic blogs. To finish the hop you need to create a project on the theme of "Moving".
Soooo this is my contribution. It is made from a very old and tatty document wallet. the three folds it had, gave me the idea to do a tri- fold card....the only trouble was, the card ended up so huge I had to cut it down which then left the fold in the wrong place. I would have started again but I had already, very firmly stuck the Peterborough map (from very outdated road atlas) onto the card!!! Arrows always suggest movement to me so I went for that combined with a travel theme.The little lorry is just two small rectangles joined together (round off the top corners), draw a window on the cab, then stick some black buttons on for wheels, The centre has been painted with silver nail varnish to create the look of hub caps. The signs and circle were created on the PC in Word...they were then printed on gloss photo paper (from poundshop!).Finish the card by inking the edge with pen ink and daubers , and doodle stitch detail as a border around the circle.
