My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Father's Day Blue Truck

Wow, just one week until Father's Day. Where is this year going.

I played along with the challenge at My Sheri Crafts last week and won the honor of being the Guest Designer this week. The theme of this weeks challenge is Father's Day. Since you need a Father's Day Card by next week anyway, why not hop on over and play along with this challenge.

So, here is one of my Father's Day cards. I haven't used this fantaastic image since last year. I don't make many masculine cards. This is The Old Truck Digi and pre-colored Set from Fred She Said. I chose to use the Blue Truck fro my card. I just love the way that Tracey Lynn colors her images so when I'm busy, I choose to let her do the hard work for me. The best part is that when you purchase this image, you get the Digi and four pre-colored images as a package deal. It doesn't get much better then that.

I found this sketch at Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge, and thought it worked perfectly with this image.

I'm always experimenting with my hand stitching which I do with Embroidery Floss. This is a new design and I used two colors of floss. I first stitched around with the blue, then over stitched other areas with the green. I just needed a more masculine stitch then I usually use.

This is such an amazing card. Your colouring is amazing and I really love the stitching you have done on the card. Also like the way you have positioned the label on the card under the three prongs.
