Rolling along...

I have a confession to make: I can not stop smiling at this card! I'm such a gooba, I know, but I can't help it! It makes me wanna smile.

I'm loving all the polka dots and the image is just plain old fun, but I think I just love how it all came together so well....and easily!! That almost never happens. LOL

I bought this stamp for no other reason except that I knew it would be fun to color! (What other reason is there?!) Then I made up the other reasons (would make a great bon vogage card, see you soon card, or just a we're visiting card) in case The Man asked me why later! hahaha Speaking of that polka dot paper, it's from the new paper collection I found at my Michaels store. I bought it last week with my 40% off coupon, which is always great value, but when the guy rung it up, it scanned in at an orginial price of $9.99, then I got 40% off on top of that!! So the 12x12 pad only cost me $5.99!?! Surely it was meant to ring up at $19.99? Someone screwed up something!! hehehehe LOVE a bargain!

The image is watercolored with my SU inks, and not that you can tell in this photo, but I applied clear embossing powder to the headlights for a glassy look. I decided against doing the same thing to the windscreen -thought it'd be too much and detract from the image. I decided the card needed nothing else but some ribbon and a little sentiment.

I should send this to my mum in Australia. She'd love it. :D Tomorrow is a MONSTER of a day! ;)

You did an amazing job with your SU inks I need to get them out more I have all the colors in Crayons, Pads, Spots, Markers, and such but since I got my Copics I have been neglecting them and I need to give them some love again!!!

The image is very very cute and your coloring may I say it again is amazing!!! Love it!!! (Could have done without the Brown) but I understand you did also use blue so I will let you off the hook this time!!! Janna reminded me I had brown on my card today too, and I told her it was soil and wood and those things have to be brown if I could make them red or pink, or yellow or any other color I would!!! LOL!!!!!

I love this Card even with the brown!!!! I need Brown free glasses like seeing the world through rose colored glasses I need to see the world through Brown free glasses!!!! LOL

Totally Fabulous Job Sandra and I would be smiling over and over if I had made this card too!!!
