You're the Best

For those of you who may not know, I run an adult foster care home. For the last 2 years I've housed three people with others part time. So after Christmas I had a dry spell of NO residents. It was worrisome but God is faithful! Yesterday my first new resident moved in, a miracle for sure. So we are unpacking and getting acquainted. Welcome Bobbi!

In project news:
My friend had a birthday, so I made a card for him with a '57 chevy!

Class Act makes this great (large) stamp. So I made the card A6 size so it wouldn't be too crowded. 'Cuz I have to add embellishments, you know!

I colored in the car with copic markers (on vanilla cs) and added glossy accents to the windows and headlights. I used the coluzzle to cut out an oval around the car, stamped the sentiment and distressed the edges with brushed corduroy.

The layer behind the car is actually Sticky Back Canvas, from Claudine Hellmuth. I heat embossed the diamond background with white powder and then went over it with Broken China distress stain. It was a little too bright so I applied a little brushed corduroy over it.

I sewed the canvas to the brown cs and popped the car up on dimensionals. Then I added three buttons and twine to finish it off.

Here you can maybe see the windows. The diamond background stamp and the sentiment are from A Muse.

Thanks for checking me out - have a great day!
