"Loads of Love" Birthday Card

I recently borrowed a stamp set from my good friend Tricia. It's called 'Loads of Love' and - yes - I do love it.

The main image is a very cute truck, and for this card I stamped the image onto patterned paper and trimmed around it.

I was making a very special card for my hubby - and I put lots of special things onto the card... first the windscreen is shiny cos it's covered in Crystal Effects.

Next, the wheels are made of buttons and linen thread.

The road is ribbon.

In the back of the car I've used 'birthday' and 'love' from two different stamp sets, since I was also doing a 'Swap Sisters' challenge at the time and I was following the challenge rules. It's fun to play by the rules.

More about the challenge - the challenge was set my Melissa Davies at 'Swap Sisters' to make an ATC card or artist trading card... I've only made two in my life so I am still a learner, but they are fun, and of course when they are finished you can put them onto a card.

Lastly, I used the leafy branch from the new punch, Two Step Bird. Here's a pic of my ATC:

And here is the finished product... a birthday card for my sweet hubby:

Treasured Moment: I've had a lovely, s-l-o-w day today... home with the heater on, mooching around doing chores slowly, and playing with new Stampin' Up! products that arrived on the doorstep this morning - oh joy!
