The road to a friend's house is never long.

"The road to a friend's house is never long." is a Danish Proverb and the name of the ATC Swap I'm in at the Stamp Shack. Joanie {aka ccstampin12} thought up this clever idea for a swap. I think I signed up back in August and it isn't due until November, but I thought I best get them done before I forget all about it!

Lately, I've been *trying* to post creations using primarily Stampin' Up! stamps and products to abide by their new demo blog policy. But today, I just had to share this with you because I think it's a stinkin' cute ATC. Check out the button wheels! :) If you don't know who makes this adorable little stamp and want to know, just email me and I'll whisper it in your ear. ;)

Oh look! I did use the *cool* new Modern Label punch {116630} by Stampin' Up! for the computer generated quote. I've used whisper white, basic black and yoyo yellow cardstock and the polka dot paper and ribbon are from my stash. {ATC measures 2-1/2 x 3-1/2"}

Another reason I love this stamp so much is because I drive a yellow VW beetle. This is the first car I've ever owned that I've named. :) Introducing . . . "Harvey" . . .

"Harvey" is named after the one and only Harvey Ball, the original creator of the happy, smiley face. For more smiley face photos and trivia, you can visit my silly website at www.smileycollector.com . Since I've started stamping and blogging the smiley website has been seriously neglected, but I still hear from people all around the world and that makes me SMILE! :) Did you notice my license plate? It's "smiley1". ;)

I want to give a shout out to Linzy today...yes, I've missed you girl! Glad to know you're still reading my blogo. I'm just a couple hour drive from Lincoln and remember . . . "the road to a friend's house is never long". ;) This goes for Debbie, Gail, Michele, Vicki and anyone else within driving distance. Stop by and stamp anytime!

Enjoy your Sunday!
