Samantha was inspired by the children’s book series by Mo Willems: Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and The Duckling Gets a Cookie?! She says, “both of these books are near and dear to my heart since when my little Menn were actually little (ha!). They LOOOOVED these books and always made us ALL crack up!”

She started by stamping the images from the Rub-a-Dub-Dub, Car Critters, All the Speech Bubbles and Milk and Cookies with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then die cut them out. Then she transformed the larger duck image into the Pigeon.

Samantha used the Peekaboo Backdrop dies to create the sort of book/comic book grid that is used in the book. She used Distress Oxide Inks in Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Dried Marigold and Tattered Rose to add ink blending all around.

The sentiments were stamped from All the Speech Bubbles in all of the tiny speech bubbles!

This is so sweet, Samantha! Thank you for sharing this inspired card!
