Dad's Truck

Have you see TODAY'S $1 stamp at Whimsy Haven, yet?  Isn't this beautiful?!!!:
If you are following the Whimsy Haven DT Hop, then you should have just come from Amy T's blog, right? If you want to start at the beginning, then take a hop over to the Whimsy Haven site...lots of fun inspiration!
And a quick welcome to our June Guest Designer, Stephanie Zito...woohoo!

This old truck is one of Lindsay's Father's Day sets...isn't it FAB?!  Also Really Reasonable Ribbon has their very first challenge to create a masculine project with ribbon (of course)..so here's my take of dad's old rusty truck.  I printed the word 'Dad' many times 'cause it reminded me of when I said "Dad, Dad, Dad...", and I 'staircased' the ribbon on the left side of the truck, and it needed some grass so I used my Copics for that too:
From Whimsy Haven
Stamps: WHIMSY HAVEN's Father's Day Truck Set
C/S: SU Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa, Sage Shadow, GP White

Now you have reached the end of the Whimsy Haven Designer Team blogs, so make sure to visit

Thanks so much for visiting us this week, and have a Whimsy of a day!

Wow, Jen. What a great card for Dad... I love the way you've feathered that rust colour into the blue - really makes the ol' truck look like it's been around forever! Amazing colouring job... inspiring, even!

Jen, your use of ribbon and the way you stacked your "dad" sentiment is genius. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Hope to see you next challenge.
