My kind of vintage....

Here is a card I made a few weeks back while I was digging through some older stamps. This fence from Art Impressions is such a versatile image and I thought it would be a great accompaniment to the old truck from Stampin' Up.  I stamped them together to make a scene and used watercolor crayons and a blender pen to color them.  I really wanted the image to stand out so I kept it a simple background with earth tones to compliment the coloring.

This was a just for fun card, so I hope you like it!  Because this is such a long card, be sure to click on it to get the full view.  Blogger just wouldn't let me format it any larger and still fit on my post! 

I would like to add this to the following challenges:

Wags 'n Whiskers - Go green
Pause Dream Enjoy - For the Boys
Art Impressions - Anything Goes

Have a great day!

Mother's Day in the UK

Good morning!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  I know I am!  The temperature was in the 50's yesterday and the whole family went out ice fishing.  Unfortunately, I ended up with a sunburn, but we caught some fish so everyone was happy!

Here's a picture of my 10 year-old...the boy that is, not the fish! LOL

And my 7 year-old:

Okay, on to crafting!  The card I have for you today is a Mother's Day card.  Mother's Day isn't until May in the States, but in the UK it is this month, hence the challenge at Dream Valley this time is Mother's Day!

This card idea actually came about when I was cutting out flowers for another card.  I love that one project can come from another.

I hope you can join us at Dream Valley and play along in our Mother's Day challenge.  One lucky player will win a prize from FRECKLED FAWN!  Be sure to check them out HERE!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen - Mum's the word
Crazy 4 Challenges - use the negative of your die cut
Totally Gorjuss - Mum

Have a great week!  I hope to be back later in the week to show you some scenic stamping I have been doing!
