Happy Birthday, Dad!


Frances is our challenge hostess from the CCEE team for the month of September, and today she has started us off with a fabulous sketch challenge! I had a lot of fun working with this design, and we hope you'll join us. Check out our CCEE blog for the details and see the cards my friends made.

My dad's birthday is this week, so I thought Frances' sketch design was perfect for this cool truck image by Gina K. Designs. I watercolored the truck with Stampin' Up reinkers and a watercolor brush.

For my USA friends, I hope you've been enjoying your Labor Day weekend. Be safe if you're traveling today!

Stamps: The Journey (Gina K Designs); Think Happy Thoughts (Stampin' Up); JustRite Stamps
Cardstock: Gina K. Pure Luxury White, Buckaroo Blue, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, SU designer paper
Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black, Chocolate Chip, Buckaroo Blue , Going Gray, Basic Gray, Close to Cocoa
Acccessories: Circle Nestabilities, various circle punches, star punches, ribbon, silver, brads, paper piercer, sponge dauber
