Keep on Truckin'

Hello Everyone,
I made this card for a couple challenges. The first challenge is at the Stamping Vacation Blog (if you have never been here and like challenges this site is your dream come true!) There are a ton of challenges going on at this blog but the one I am entering this card in is the 'When I grow up - Truck driver' challenge. This challenge couldn't have come at a better time to inspire me. Each day I give the students I tutor a journal prompt and yesterday's was 'When I grow up...' The little boy I was tutoring wrote all about how he wanted to be a truck driver. (He is super into anything truck, car, well, ok, anything with a engine lol)  I think I am going to save this card and give it to him at the end of the school year.

The second challenge that I would like to enter it into is the stitching challenge going on at 4 Crafty Chicks  This is the first time that I ever did real machine stitching on a card and while it didn't turn out pretty I think it fits the boy card perfect!

Boy, do these challenges ever get addictive once you really start lol!
