Road Trip!

"On the road again...", can't you just hear Willie Nelson singing those words! Of course, now it will be running over and over in your mind for the rest of the day!  The Stampendous Design Team is working with a theme of "On The Road" this week. We will be featuring some of our wonderful stamps and stencils that fit this theme.

Today I'm sharing a fun card using some stencils and a great sentiment from the Campground set (SSC1253). I think it would work for a graduation card or inspiration card.
