Sharing my love of rubber stamping, one card at a time.

A Promise Fulfilled

I promised my friend Paige (She Who Must Stamp) that I would post a card on my blog this week.  It was a good promise to make because I hadn't posted in such a long time and I needed the push.  I knew I had to make 15 swap cards for my upline meeting anyway so I decided to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.  I chose the apple truck from SU's Countryside stamp set.  My husband had a red flareside Ford F-150 when I first started dating him, so I decided my apple truck had to be red.  Also, I am so looking forward to apple season because that will mean our extremely hot weather will be ending soon.  Hasn't it been the hottest summer?
Cardbase is Crumb Cake, layers include Basic Black cardstock, Riding Hood Red cardstock and Designer Prints, watercolor paper.  Image stamped in Staz-On and colored with SU Watercolor Wonder Crayons in Regals. Black brads and a snippet of black striped grosgrain ribbon are the only embellishments.  Hope you like my card!
