Blue Christmas

 Hello Friends! 
Happy Thursday to you!!

Today I'm inspired by my friend Doni (Lime Green Giggles) to join in the fun over on the Little Red Wagon Challenge where the theme is 'Things Beginning with Blue'.  Here's what I've come up with . . .

I've gone with an old BLUE truck as my focus.  This image is from Stampendous (circa 2013) and is called 'Christmas Truck'.  My sentiment stamp is from an older SU stamp set named 'A Cardinal Christmas'.  I bet several of you have that stamp set in your stash ... it was a popular one at the time!  And, my background paper comes from a new 8x8 paper pack I've purchased from by The Paper Boutique called 'Winter Wonders'

Other challenges to play in:

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #499 - Christmas
Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - ATG twist/Masculine
Ike's World Challenge #137 - V is for Vehicle / AG

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Please stay safe & healthy!  Till next time . . .

  3. So when I read the title of your post, Elvis popped into my head with his Blue Blue Christmas song. Don't know if it is his original song, but I sure do love the way he sings it. So now that I have a song stuck in my head :-), let me tell you how much I love your card. You're so talented - you always use just the perfect patterned papers to showcase your images perfectly and this one is no different. Love it all!

  4. I LOVE your old blue truck! It's got character. You did a fabulous job coloring it. That's some pretty paper in the background, too. It's the kind you can always find a use for.

  5. This looks pretty cool, love the colours and great inspiration. x
