I host a sketch challenge each month on the Paperthreads forum. I have a wonderful helping hand in this endeavor. Aussie Caz creates these amazing sketches and provides participants with the cutter file and layered PSD to go along with the sketch. This makes it super easy to make up a quick card. So my Dad's birthday was coming up and I decided to use Caz's wonderful sketch as my guideline.
birthday tickets file (only available through my membership) and stamped the sentiments. The sentiment stamps are called Paper Tray from Paper Trey Ink. I added the brads to cover up a boo boo! Silver puff paint and red were added to the car for more dimension. A type of liquid paper glaze (similar to Diamond Glaze) was added to the window and head light to make them more realistic. I colored the truck with Copic markers. The truck is from Loads of Love by Stampin' Up. I wish I owned the SU accessories set as my Dad would have loved the dogs sitting in the bed of the truck. Alas I do not and didn't see any other stamps of mine that would work so I left the bed empty. I used the Tim Holtz paper distresser to rough up the edges.

We had Adoree's 4th birthday party last weekend. She had a blast and guess what it didn't rain! Yay! The yard was a little muddy but at least people could sit outside instead of huddling on the porch. I thought I'd share a few photos of the event with you.
Sisters and Quilters store. They shipped extra fast! My Mom brought me the white fabric and I cut all the squares out and handed it over the experts. I am not a sewer! Adoree just loved it!
Above there is Adoree with her boyfriend and some of her loot! LOL! This is a neighbor of ours that Adoree loves to play with.
Okay it is lunch time! So I've gotta run! Have a great holiday weekend!
