Blessings on your day

As you know when one of my Nephews or great nephews turns 16 I usually use this truck for their birthday card and my last nephew has turned 16. My family is so big that I have great nephews that are older than my nephew, crazy isn't it.

I decided to go gray so I embossed it in silver and colored in with gray.  The tire marks and the sentiment is from the same stamp set. Added a few die cut gears and sponged around the edges.


I am linking once again to the Our Daily Bread design, Let's be Sentimental challenge that you can find HERE . You have until December 30th to play along.

Here is another picture, I couldn't decide which to use so I thought I would post both.



Our Daily Bread design -- Special Boy stamp set, embossed in silver and colored w/markers
Gear die cuts
Distress ink -- Black soot

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas, and will have a great week ahead.

There are a lot of boys in your family and you've had a lot of practice making masculine cards! This is the place to go for inspiration, for sure!
