Black and White and a Splash of....

Yellow! 

Yellow?  Really?  I NEVER use yellow!   When I sat down tonight to make a quick card for Holly May's "Black and White/Splash of,.." challenge on the SavvyProjects Blog, I pulled out an itty bitty stamp that's never seen the inside of an ink pad!  The little GWP TG3438 Compact Car (Fall Supplement) is so cute and I can't believe I never used it before. 

I love to DOODLE and this car is PERFECT for that.  The first idea that popped into my head when I looked at that cute little car was a CAB...so I doodled it up by adding some checkerboard stripes across the side and a TAXI service light on top.  I think I've been in two cabs in my life and neither one of them looked like the stereotypical New York City cab but I just had to give it that recognizable look! 

Of course, I HAD to add the yellow smiley face to the antenna ").  And wouldn't you know it, I found the perfect sentiment in the T3241 Bug of Fun set!!!  Wierd 'cuz all I was thinking as I was working on this card was the sentiment...

"I don't wanna go..."
"You mean I really have to leave?"
"Head for the hills!"

That's what I was thinking!  Since it was a quick card, I added some faux stitching using T2610 Running Stitches...This set is an oldie but goodie and really works well when you don't have time to change the tan thread in your machine to black!!!  PSSSSSTT....Disregard the red brake light...I HAD to include that!!!

Notice the background?  I used an old Cuttlebug Embossing folder called Traffic Jam...PERFECT eh?

Hope you find some time this week to participate in this challenge, it was fun and QUICK!  Make sure to check out all the other entries below, maybe yours will be NEXT!

Copic Markers Used in this project:  Y00, 18; R29 and T1
