Jack, the Huckster


Hello and thanks for dropping back by.  I'm happy to be able to share a card I made for the May Artistic Outpost release with the fun Kudzu Kafe plate.  I used the ticket stamp from this set.  I thought it was so cute that it says Jack and the Bean Stalk and decided to create my own kudzu stalk.  I had a chuckle when I looked at the kid on the ticket, whom I persisted in thinking of as Jack.  Methinks Jack is a bit of a huckster, selling carnival tickets to come in and see the beanstalk.  So I used the "be honest" stamp on a tattered banner to remind Jack not to stretch the truth too far!  The summer scene in the background is from an one of my all-time favorite AO stamps, Keeper.  

Hope you are having a great weekend - stay cool!
