Enjoy the Ride

This is a fun little card I made for our Uncle Franz ........ not to be confused with our Uncle Hans ....... yes we have both!! I think I am going to use this for my Papertrey Ink Pals challenge as well but I might want to make a more neutral card too ..... I need to work on making a "dude" kinda card!!! The bottom sentiment reads "On the road to recovery" and the license plate reads "Uncle" both in German...... I thought this might be smart since he does not understand any English ....... although I think Beer is pretty close Bier :) And how much do I love that Beetle Bug...... I stamped it twice ...... once in black for the outline and once in Riding Hood Red for the body. LOVE IT!!! The sky is PTI white and I used a cotton ball to swirl on the sky. The mountains were cut with my cricut, the road is freehand with the new line of dots in the Argyle set and a Spot Dot sun to finish it off. They live in the Bavaria ....... you know the whole Sound of Music thing so I thought this would be a cute layout for the card. Of course Curt will be doing all the writing on the inside .......



Thanks for looking!!!

What a great card, Sue Ann. You created a wonderful scene. Due to the volcano eruption it will take a bit longer I think before I receive this cute stamp set and die. :-(

Forget the card...I want to know more about your uncle...he sounds facinating! lol Seriously though, the card is adorable. Those snow-capped mountains rock Sue Ann. And the dot spot sun is clever!

Clever idea, Sue Ann. I'm sure Uncle Franz will love it. And, how nice of PTI to include a good German car in their stamp line up -- just perfect for you. :)
