It's been a while since I've posted so I'd better get back to it before everyone thinks I'm done with stamping for good. lol Today is my nephew's 16th birthday and I had to make a card for him right?! I've spent a good amount of time with him in the past year or so since I would pick him up after school and drop him off at work. Well today that all ended. He got his license was able to drive the 1979 Ford F150 truck he bought two years ago and has been slowly restoring with the help of his dad, my brother (he paid for it on his own too except for the labor to do some of the work he wasn't able to do...how many 16 year olds could do this and pay for it too?! He's a hard worker and an awesome guy!). I was able to see progress he made since I work for my brother at his collision and restoration shop. I do NOT do the collision or restoration work though. lol That is one dirty and difficult job let me tell you! It's an art for sure just like card making. I don't have a before and after picture right now, but if anyone is interested in seeing them so you know what he started and ended with let me know and I'll add it to this post. Guess I'll see if any crafters are interested in trucks at all (which by the way I'm not into them too much, but this one is special). Ok now that I've gone on about all of that I'd better get to the card I made.
About a month and a half ago or so I posted this card...
I had a leftover packet from a stamp a stack and decided to use it to make my nephew's card. I didn't use the So Saffron banner, but used all the other pieces. Here are a few pics below of the new card I created using Guy Greetings and Calling All Heroes from Stampin' Up! I really like how it turned out too. Not too bad for whipping it together in about 10 minutes. Yes, I am a SLOW stamper. I look at some cards ladies say they create in 10 minutes and think it would take me 20 minutes alone to come up with part of an idea for a card. lol
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
