Truckload of Wishes
It is difficult for me to come up with ideas for cards for the males in our family so they get a lot of trucks, planes and boats on their cards. This is the first year that I have had a grandson-in-law so what do I make so that he knows Grandma is happy to have him in the family? I used red for the truck as red is my favorite color for vehicles. Every car that I have purchased for myself has been red from the 1966 Hornet, which was my first car, to the Ford Focus that I drive now. I like most colors so it is hard to pick just certain colors for a project.
On the inside I will write "A truck full of good wishes are coming your way to help you celebrate on this very special day." I sure hope that he likes it!
This card is also me because it looks happy. I am basically a very happy person and have a smile on my face most of the time. I enjoy antiques, therefore the antique truck.
I am going to enter this in Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. I used the Cricut cartridges Heritage and Country life. The sun was made from cutting two of the sun over the horizon, cutting off the sun parts and gluing a circle over them. The truck is from Country Life. I used Close To My Heart paper and stamp pad.
CTMH makes the best stamp pads. When I have bought other kinds, I end up throwing them out. Almost everything I use on my cards is from Cricut and CTMH.
