A retired Old Truck!!

Firstly I would like to thank the lovely DTs over at A Gem of a Challenge and Sentimental Sunday for choosing my strawberry card in their Top 3's last month, I was so chuffed and am sure it was the gingham fabric that did it!!
Well folks, July is here and that means we are on a down hill slide to Christmas, lol and no I haven't started my Christmas cards yet!!  I can't believe that half of the year has gone already and that this is card number 7 for Crafts Galore Encore DT.  When I first joined the DT, I was so apprehensive, stressed and worried about it all but I can honestly say it is the best thing that I have done. They are all such a fabulous talented fun group and this month we have 4 new members to the team so do pop across and meet them all. So on to this months challenge, a nice easy one and it is to use a stamp or a digi stamp.  We have a fantastic sponsor this month, Fred She Said who have very kindly donated $15 GC to spend in their store.  Check them out here 


So here is my masterpiece for July using the Old Truck

Sentiment from a Woodware Set
Nestabilities labels Eight
Coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch pens
W0 to W7 for the truck body
C1 to C7 fo the wheels
B0000 for the car windows and headlights
Momentos Wheat sponged for the background
Papers are DCWV
Glossy Accents on the headlights
Card and Raffia from Stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

My craft creations - Always anything goes

Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything goes
