Laugh! I've Caught the Quirky Bug Again,

Hi Bloggers! It's Time for another Quirky Crafts Challenge! Pop over and join in!! Here's my Card!! We are very lucky to have Bugaboo sponsoring us this week. Yay!! and they will be giving our winner/favourite Seven Digi's of their choice!!! And for those of you who don't win, now's the time to pop over to the bugaboo digi store coz they have 50% off!

Make Us Laugh!!!
what could be easier than that!?
(Staying in bed all day)

No! come on, get out those mojo's, you have two weeks to make anything you want, enter as many times as you like, have fun, just make us laugh! Simples!!!
Here's my card... I've used Gus Tidbits New Truck printed out twice, once over the cloud backing papers (PinkPetticoat) and the stripy paper. This looks like two separate pieces of paper doesn't it, but no, the clouds and the stripes are all one piece. I left enough white card to add another Gus image next to it, so I could do a bit of 3D-ing! In the second image I' cut out Gus from the trucks window, but left the steering wheel and his arm, I also snipped off the headlight and that fencing whatknot in the back of the trunk.
To finish off I added some Glossy Accents to Gus's glasses, edged the card with a black ProMarker and added some mock stitching using a fine black liner. I also added ribbon, brads and eyelets from my stash. The stripy papers are my own, made using Promarkers and can be found as freebies HERE. Hope my card makes you laugh! Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Lyn, your card is so darn cute. If my dad was living - I would have to take your wonderful inspiration and make it for him - less the comment about his wife - as my mom died before him. Most of the time when my dad would buy a new truck for the farm, he would also buy a new car. He always claimed he got a better deal - but was that really the case?Anyway, Love it!!!!
