Missing You

 My sister and her family visited over the holidays.  After they left we found one lone sock under the bed.  It belongs to my youngest niece, who is away in college.  I've held on to it, until I found the time to make an appropriate card for it.
I think she will love this!

The Male Room - Use Embossing - I embossed all the images, before coloring.  This card could be for male or female.

Lawn Fawn - Bring it Back - The stamp set is from Lawn Fawn.
I used a stencil for the background, with a blue ink.  Then . . . .  wait for it . . . I stenciled over that with Stickles!  I have so many stickles and other glitter glues - just drying up on the shelf.  And I've been noticing that there are now so many products now like these to use over stencils.  LIGHT BULB.  Use my old stickles for this!!
I also added mini buttons as accents on the card. I had to dust off the container they were in.

Inspire. Create. Challenges:  I'm not sure this card qualifies -- I wanted to show movement of the washer.  So the stencil I selected (in my mind) gives a spinning feel.  Which I then tried to emphasize by angling the washing machine.  
Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes With Dies - There are coordinating dies
with this stamp set.  

Here is a peak at the inside:
I hope this brings a smile to your face -- I know it did for my hubby!  I can't wait to send it (along with sock).  
Enjoy your day.

Happy 16th! New Driver

Hello! My niece is turning 16 next week, and all she wants is $$ towards her car account.  So I thought this card would be good for her.  She really wants a Mini Cooper (used, of course), but I had this VW from PaperTrey Ink that I thought would be a good substitute. 

I am putting it into a new challenge for me Creative Crafting Uncles.  The theme is "Cars".  Now I have a lot of cars in my stash as my hubby is a mechanic.  So even though this card is for a girl, I do think it could certainly be used for a boy.  Just change the license plate - and don't guys like red cars too?

I'm using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches . But I'm going to flip it a bit.  And the car is in place of the white box.
And I'm also linking to Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes with Dies - there is a die with the PTI stamp set.
Time Out Challenges - Birthdays - it's not your traditional birthday card, but take a peek at the license plate.  
That's all I've got for today.  Thanks for taking a look.  I'm off to food shop for dinner for tonight (Valentine's day) and food for the weekend.  The birthday girl and her parents are coming in for the weekend.
Hope you have a good weekend coming up for yourself.
