Loads of Fun

How was your Wednesday? I hope it was outstanding! Sunny but chilly today. At lunchtime I was able to take two bags of books to the library to donate them to the book sale. Exercise and a good deed too. I had "loads of fun" tonight making this card.


The image is from Doodle Pantry called Toy Truck Ants and it's one of my favorites. My boys would have loved this one when they were little had I had it then. I reminds me of them playing trucks in the sand box. I used the pre-colored image and added one of the sentiments from the set as part of the image. I used a punch to do the border and then pieced the colors from the image into the punched border. I added a couple rhinestones for embellishment. I didn't have an orange color so I switched that one to brown. The patterned paper is also from Doodle Pantry. I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch for inspiration.

I am entering these challenges:
We are starting to wind the week down. As usual I am looking forward to the weekend. Hope you are too. Wishing you sunny skies and crafty moments. Take care!

Cool card. I have two boys and I did a lot of playing with them with the big trucks like this. I had as much fun playing as them. Love that brown background paper too. Thank you for joining us in our Doodle Pantry Ants in the Pantry #4 challenge.
