Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge


I really didn't think I was going to be able to play along today.  We had lots of running around to do and a couple of doctor's appointments today with the kids being off school BUT. . .I was able to create a quick little card to go with this month's theme of the men in our lives for PTI's April Blog Hop.  Isaac will be starting preschool in the Fall.  I can't believe my little man is old enough to start school already.  I made each of my girls special cards on their first days of preschool, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make one for Isaac. 

I used the new Boys Basics: Truckin' It set and coordinating die.  The zig zag pattern on the left of the card was creating using the Background Basics: Chevron Stripes set.  I stamped the stripes in primary boy colors using Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise and New Leaf.  I die cut the bus, then stamped and colored it using Copic markers.  I used a strip of True Black cardstock to create the "road".  You can see the rest of the participants' creations HERE.  Thanks for stopping by!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Boys Basics: Truckin' It, Background Basics: Chevron Stripes (PTI); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, New Leaf (PTI); Paper- white, True Black (PTI); Accessories:  Truckin' It Die (PTI), white gel pen, Copic markers;  Finished card measures 3.75"x4.5"
