Long time no see!

Well, it has been a long time since I posted, but I'm still here!  I've been off on a trip to NY State to visit a friend for a week...and OH what a GREAT time we had!  Been having some health issues since I got back, but hopefully soon they will be over!  Not done much in the way of design work, but I got an order for a card with a Truck, so instantly thought of the Truck from Fred She Said!  I just LOVE this image!
I printed the image out on some textured and speckled paper by Wasau called Stardust then cut it out with the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities and soften the edge with Color Box Platinum ink.  I layered it on one of my Walnut Inked Backing Paper 1, which I embossed with the Cuddlebug Script Embossing Folder then rubbed with metallic chalk and softened the edge with several brown inks from Color Box.  This is then layered onto the card which is backed with a piece of crinkled and sanded Core'dinations Color Core Cardstock.  All in all, a great card to give to an elderly gentleman.
Hopefully soon I will have the pictures from my trip edited (I took over 200 :-O ) and will be able to post some about it.


  1. a fantastic card!!! I love all your details. Lucky person getting this one!!!

  2. Lovely card Carol, that backing is perfect to use with the truck.
