Rock Princess gets a convertible... or Punch It, Martha!

Remember that old commercial with the little old ladies when one of them yells, "Punch it, Martha!" and off they speed?  I can't even remember what product was being advertised in the 80s when it aired, but we say that in the car all the time.

I got my Nifty Fifties cart a week or so ago and just did not know what I was going to do with it... nothing spoke to me!  Today's Circle On-Line Swarm project inspired me to use it; we are instructed to use metal and glitter so this car was it!  Once I saw the text "Punch it" on there, I had to smile!

I used car2 on page 46, cut at 4-3/4".  I cut the windshield twice:  clear hologram glitter paper and blue cardstock.  This allowed me to have a "space" to put the character.

I cut an extra steering wheel since I needed the character to sit behind it.
I used silver paper for the chrome.  The lights are white cardstock covered with glitter (fabulous Ranger Holographic Glitter that I received from a terrific RAK that Lizzieming on the Circle sent to me).  I used my Xyron to coat the shapes in adhesive before glittering.

The character is the moped driver from Rock Princess, page 32, cut at 4-1/2".  I cut off her body, chopped her hair a bit too, added to her glasses, and gave her a nose!



The "punch it" text that I mentioned, was cut at 1".  I added a smoke cloud... which was actually one of the clouds from Serenade, cut at 2-1/4".  The car and driver are popped up with pop dots.

Thanks for looking at my project!  Tomorrow (Sunday, November 14), my daughter and I will be having our drawing for the embossing folders that I mentioned in an earlier post.  You can check it out here.

OMGosh! It's Margaret!!!! We have been saying it wrong since 1989!!! Well, I can't change now! That also explains that when I googled it, I kept getting posts for Martha Stewart punches and just gave up. Margaret!

Thanks TR!
