Sending smiles...

Good morning!

And a very good morning it is. Yesterday my sister convinced me to go back into town to look at cars again and guess what? I found one! It's a 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek and I love it. So far I've nicknamed it W3 because that is the Copic color that it matches. I would have gone with an orange one if they'd had it but in the end I'll be rockin' the warm grey, LOL! ;)

Because my day ended up being much busier than I first anticipated I had to go a different direction than my usual cards when it came to making my review preview card. I stamped Josie and Jilly's Chat right on to the kraft cardstock and used the E40 family of Copics to give them some simple shading. I also played with the placement of the image by stamping only Josie on the front of the card and then adding Jilly into the center with their phone line extended using a Copic multiliner pen. Then I just layered some tags and tabs with a few small embellishments and called it good. 
As always, there are plenty more Sweet November review preview cards to be seen over on the ATS blog today and all of the May stamps can be found in the All That Scraps store.

Later gators!

Amy I am so happy for you that you were able to find the car that you wanted to. =o) I think it must be beautiful if it is W3, that is a great grey color! This card is such a cute idea and you know I just love it when the outside is hiding a great secret on the inside and I would have to say that you sure did! Adorable.... Try not to waste too much gas now... heehee I know when I bought my car this last year I used every excuse I could to go somewhere and do something just to get the pleasure of driving it around. lmbo. Hope you have a great Thursday. Hugs, Lisa G
