Truck - Happy Birthday....

Well what can I say....with a head that feels as if a semi has run through it (no not from drinking...just sinuses) so crafting has been a bit of a challenge, but thanks to The Play Date Cafe they have managed to make me feel like I am on cloud nine. I made their FAB 4 for Challenge 16 (CLICK HERE). Thanks Julie Ranae for the boost I needed on this Saturday and for letting me know.

Last night I started making these two cards, I was having fun...but then my DH gave me the news we had no internet...well that just didn't sit well...LOL...I was no longer in a hurry to get them done :o. I never knew I liked the computer so much. But due to his hard work and determination he was able to get one computer up and running today before he left. So thank you honey for working so hard for me.

What a week this has been. On Thursday morning I took my first set of 50 cards into a store called Memories Such As These, where they will be sold. I don't think I slepted at all the night before...LOL.

On to the other exciting stuff...crafting :). I didn't know the colors for the Play Date Cafe new challenge #17, but low and behold when I clicked onto their site today, it was the colors I picked, although I didn't use Linen (didn't have any :0) I incorporated Natural Ivory. Yesterday, before everything went wrong with the computers, I scoped out another fantastic challenge blog called Stampin Royalty. Their challenge #7 this week was to make a Mascline card. I thought this was great as I did not have any to take into the store. Both idea's were great for what I wanted to make.

The card below is the first card I started, but the designer paper was giving me some trouble, so I put it aside and started another card...LOL which also gave me some trouble...LOL. Hubby to the rescue... thanks for all of your help.

Card #1: He didn't think I should color the truck and that the ribbon was okay, but he didn't see me put the bow or pearls on today *wink*...and I guess I didn't listen, because I colored the truck...LOL.

Card #2: Rob said to me, to leave it plain...men don't always like things busy...but they do like them plain. Wow was that ever hard for me...hee..hee. I had already done the punching on the side that he really liked...but struggled to balance it out. So in the end I *pretty much* did as he wanted...just added a few pearls...LOL.

As my head is pounding...I am not going to post what I used...well I will do it simply Stamps: Little Paper Shop and Stampin Up. All paper Stampin Up. Markers & embossing powder (clear) Stampin Up. Pearls, and Vera fine Black ink, Chocolate Chip and Real Red Ink.

Wishing you all a fantastic day...hope you are able to take in some Olympic's. I am hoping to make another card tonight and tomorrow is my Monthly Card Class. The card class will be very busy two months in one due to the fact that all the other members were not their or they cancelled coming. I will get a chance to make my first calendar page tomorrow, that should be very exciting. Have a super day!!!
