Wintry Traveling Card

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are happy that it is Friday. I have taken a break this week. I did not make any cards this week...until today. I was a little burned out from all those Christmas cards. So, now I am ready to get back in the driver's seat. That being said, I have a wintry card for you today. All the stamps used are from Artistic Outpost.



My thinking was that the pickup was traveling home for the Holidays. Other materials: CS and ink is Night of Navy from Stampin' Up. I also used a metallic ink from Color Box on the little house and parts of the truck. And I added lots of glitter glue and a sliver jewelry pendant. Here are a couple more views.




Some very fun challenges for Wintry Traveling Card:

Stamping Vacation: Monochromatic - blue

Simon Says Stamp - Blue, Silver, and White

Rainbow Lady's Challenge: Make it a vintage delight

Sir Stamp a lot: Travel the World

Southern Girls: Vintage

Gingersnap Creations: Supply Challenge; Great White North and White Glitter.

Hope you enjoy your weekend. Take some time to make cards...it is good for you. LOL. Love ya,

Karen
