DD Old Friends

I have a quick post today - amazing I know!!  I am working on NUMEROUS projects for up and coming events and it is time for me to move it up a notch or two

This card was one that was created for my Card Design Classes at my LSS using Darkroom Door Rubber Stamps Vintage Automobiles

I am on a mission - top try and use every stamp in a set to make my own DP - how many sets do we own where we have used only one or two stamps in it and the other ones remain unlinked and just plain SAD! LOL!

I have used the large card for the main image and randomly stamped sentiments and the little car images on it, using Scattered Straw and Walnut Stain Distressing Inks

and I love this sentiment - what a truth!!  LOL!  I have to add here that this was very hard for me to make, I am not used to one layer and wasn't too sure about it BUT the lovely ladies at both Classes loved it and are going to be making more along this line - so that has to be a good thing - right!?

This card is for the following challenges:
Southern Girls - Boys or Men in your Life
Pals Paper Arts - Photo Inspiration
Truly Scrumptious - distressing 
Craft Your Passion - A Card for All Occasions
Crafty Cardmakers - Anything Goes 
Creative Stamp Friends - Autumn Colors 
 Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Woodware USA - Anything Goes (again)

It is Saturday here and a very laid back one for our family as we are recovering from 3 weeks of SICKNESS in the house - my poor teenagers have been sick for the whole of their school holidays, but thankfully today are able to enjoy a sunny day and do a few things - as I am sitting here my DD2 is playing her guitar and singing songs she has written - it is music to my ears in so many ways! God bless you!
