Once again I simply couldn't resist participating in Beate's wonderful Weekend Sketch Challenge! Isn't this layout FUN?! Be sure to visit Beate's blog, "Fresh & Fun" or search WSC37 at Splitcoaststampers to see all the other fabulous creations using this sketch.
The patterned paper I've used for this card is from one of my favorite stacks by K & Company ~ Wild Saffron. I've layered it on Stampin Up cardstock ~ wild wasabi and blue bayou. The adorable little "Elzy" image is a small wood mounted rubber stamp by Elzybells Art Stamps, Ltd distributed by A Muse.
I think Elzy's sporty car looks like a VW Beetle ~ and I colored it yellow ~ just like the one I drive! I just showed this card to hubby (aka MW) and he said "where are the dents in the roof?" :) Ok, let me explain... on Monday morning when I was leaving for work, I pushed the garage door opener button and went and got into my car. I started to back out and CRASH!!! Yes, you guessed it... I hit the garage door!!!
In my defense, I had looked in the rearview mirror and saw daylight, but unbeknownst to me, the door had only gone up about 2/3 of the way when it stuck. Grrr! What a way to start the week! It did about $450 damage to my car and although the garage door is still working, MW thinks it will need a new bottom panel. Moral of the story: make sure the garage door is ALL the way up before backing out!! :/ Have any of you ever done anything like this? Please tell me you have so I don't feel so stupid! :) LoL
I hope you're all enjoying the weekend and finding time to be creative. Thanks for stopping by today! Smiles, Pam :)
