Get A Load of This


Hi Friends and Stampers,

Yep I really loving this new Keep on Trucking stamp set by Your Next Stamp.  And since the new sketch is ironically close to my last one and it's perfect for these truck images, I decided to play again.  There are a plethora of stamps they have that I so dearly desire, lol.  I would like to thank them for making me their featured stamper.   As soon as DH has a minute, I'm going to have him add my badge that I was not able to figure out how to do, lol.

I air brushed the sky with my Copic B34 and grabbed an older paper pack, MME Gnome Sweet Gnome.  And then I used this paper on three other cards, lol.   I love it.  I'll be sad when it's gone, lol.  When I stamped the sentiment, an ever so slight red line was accidentally placed in the left hand corner by my acrylic block.   I didn't even see it on there.   But you know how red is right?  So I die cut a sun image out and added it to the corner.  Which actually worked out better all the way around, lol.   I stamped my dump truck and colored with Copics, Then I fussy cut it out.....wishing I had the dies that automatically do the fussy cutting for you, lol.  I have a cutter that makes wavey lines, so I am glad I got it out and dusted it off for these cards.  Sure makes that part so much easier.

I've really enjoyed these two days off.    I ran some errands today.   Had to go to the post office to send a card to Scotland for a card swap.  I ended up sending a couple goodies with it.   Who knew I would have to fill out a customs form, lol.   There is a lady in town who does clothing alterations.   She has a shop across town, so I headed that way today.  She only charges me $5.00 to adjust the length of my sons jeans and they come out looking just like I bought them that way.  I LOVE that!   Since I had to trek all the way over to the East side, I decided to stop at my favorite Mexican Food restaurant for a couple chili verde burrito's to go. Yum.  Now I am posting this card, changing the laundry, going to do some vacuuming and then head on over to get my Grandson from School.  

I hope you are having a great day!

Holly
