Have a Great Day

My love affair with stripes rages on . . .

I thought this use of stripes suggested the painted lanes on the asphalt streets that this biker would likely be traveling on.  Or am I reaching here?  Anyway, this card also called for some textural grunge and after digging through a few locations in my stash, I found the one you see used here. 

This excavation precipitated some re-organization of my texture stamps:  I have a nice variety of them and as I use them a lot, it seemed to make sense to collect them into one happy family and re-locate them to a space within grabbing distance of my worktable.  Great idea . . .now I just have to find the space for their new home. 

Good luck with that – it's not like I have any easily available real estate left over in my rubber room.

Maybe some suspended shelving over my table?
