Vroom... Vroom...

This week's Waltzingmouse sketch challenge is a wonderful sketch by Anya Schrier. Happy mail came the other day in the form of some new WMS stamps. So I veered a little from my norm and did a "neuter" card. Could be used male or female and on the CAS side for me. Used an image from WMS Half Pint Heroes and colored with copics.


I could pretend that is me.... have a black mustang convertible {my 50 year itch} although, this image looks more like a "beetle" and I have short hair but, definitely not curly, LOL!! Drove minivans for years {carting kids and friends to dance competitions and the like} so, when I hit the big 5-0, it was all about me {for a moment anyway, LOL!!}. First time coloring with all grays and need a little experience but, not too bad for a first try. Added crystal effects to the headlight/taillight and windshield, stitching, and brads. Fussy cut the image and popped on top.

Here's Anyas' sketch.... {very versatile and one to keep for future reference!!}

 
TFL!! Tomorrow is friday. Painters coming this weekend and we have plans to be out of the house {going to the granite store, maybe lunch, delivering some wedding invitations personally, and....??? Definitely will have to think of something!!}

Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a wonderful week with lots of love and laughter!!

Great use of this sketch. I used it for my Inkspirations card for tomorrow. Love the image and got a giggle at imagining you in your 'stang with the top down, sunglasses on, the breeze blowing through your hair and the tunes a humming :) I'm stuck in the mini-van stage right now and even though the 5-0 is looming in January, I started late so will have to wait till the 6-0 for my 'stang LOL! Enjoy driving it for me....drove a buddies of mine once and loved the power :)
