Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

You’re the Goat


Hello, I am back today for the next Topping at Seize the Birthday. Jules is our wonderful hostess and she has asked us to use Wheels on our card. I made this card for my hubby’s Birthday as he grew up on a farm in Michigan. He said the tractor is the same color as the one they had when he was a kid. He really loved his card.

Card Details: The stencil is from MFT. I used a watercolor wash to make the background. The stamp sets are also MFT and the set is called Farmtastic Friends. The fence, however, is from Spellbinders and it’s actually the back of the car (Sunday Drive) where you are supposed to put packages or such. I found them left-over on my desk and thought they would work perfectly for a fence. I used a mix of Prismas and Copics too.

I would also like to take a moment and welcome Bonnie Klass to the team for the next two months as our next Surprise Party Guest. Bonnie, I am thrilled to have you designing with us. We also have my friend, Carol McFarland joining us for this challenge as she was the overall winner of our previous challenge. Welcome to you both!

Now, please come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out everyone’s cards using Wheels and then join us! Nanc’
