Go Daddy

I'm on "A Roll" this morning with this card.  Actually the digi is called "Driving Miss Maddie" from Sassy Cheryl and Max is indeed driving Maddie.  From the look on her face she is scared to death lol.  Hang on tight Maddie.

When I first started working on this card I had the idea to turn it into a Father's Day card since it is Sunday here in the US.  But as I was coloring it reminded me of my hubby and myself when we were young.  Oh my, he was going to conquer the world, make his first million and retire at 25.  I believed every word he said and followed him everywhere he led me.  Our first card was quite similar to this box with wheels held together by duct tape.  Now I think I may use this as our 47th Anniversary Card. (He never made his first million but I am still following him everywhere he goes.)

I colored with my Copics and fussy cut the image out.  I colored the tape gray and used some Crackle accents to make it resemble Duct Tape.  The road is a border piece I picked up at Walmart years ago for a dollar.  The DP is from The Little Yellow Bicycle's Splash Collection I bought at my LSS, Scrapbooks By The Sea.  The silver dots are Nail Head stickers that I love because they are self adhesive and flat for mailing.  I covered the front of the tag with DP and the bunting is a wood piece from my stash.  I painted it with Claudine Hellmuth's  Silk paint.  The sentiment is some alphabet stickers from my stash.

I am entering this in the Sassy Cheryl "For A Guy/Boy" challenge this week.  They are also having a DT call and looking to add some new Sassettes to their team.  So do yourself a favor, check out some of her delightful digis and join in the fun.

I also want to enter this in the Make It Monday Anything Goes Challenge.  I love this challenge too because I get to see so many different creations every week.  Good spot for casing too.  LOL
