Let's Ride!

As some of you may know... my husband drives a semi for the Post Office back and forth to Indiana. He's gone a few nights a week but mostly, we get him on Sunday, Monday and Thursday evenings. When he IS home.. he's always telling me.. "You know.. 'we' could get our own truck and 'we' could make even more money!" HA! Yeah right! So, I usually tell him (just to keep him thinking I'm ALL for it... "Sure... as long as it's a purple one!" LOL So today's card is for him.. MY purple truck! Hee Hee My image is from, once again, Asela Hopkins newest release, "The Journey". I love the images in this set... all of them... and the sayings she has with it are so appropriate. There are soooo many ways you can do this truck and one of the coolest ones I've seen recently is on Melanie Muenchinger's blog... her "Hot Rod". You must stop over and see it! I did break up the saying on this card (it actually says.. "The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step" and IF I had photographed the inside, you could see that I actually combined Melanie's "Hand in Hand" set with this. I stamped one of the images of the two hands together down in the corner of the inside and the saying I put on it says... "A friend is a hand always holding yours, no matter how close or far apart you may be." It seemed appropriate for my husband and I since we always tell our kids we ARE best friends first. And with him being away so often, it seemed to fit the bill. I know... we're BOTH sentimental fools... but don't tell him I said that... he likes to refuse it's so. *wink* Then again, he WILL occasionally say... "WHAT??? I can be all sentimental and shhhhhtufff." LOL One thing I notice with Asela's stamps... she has a way of adding those areas in her illustrations that leave all the guessing out as to where to shade. I like that about her stamps as well. Of course you can get both Asela's and Melanie's stamps at Gina K Designs. I hope you have a great day and that YOUR best friend isn't to far away... or at least close in heart. Signature
