I Dig You PP143 PPA158

I have been asked to make a 2nd birthday card for a little boy who loves trucks. Well, what little boy doesn't love trucks?

The obvious choice for this card would have to be I Dig You paired with the happy little birthday greeting from Up Up and Away. Both these stamps sets will be retired when our new catalogue is released so if you don't already own them, now is the time to think about making that purchase.

I found that Ann's sketch over at The Paper Players was just the inspiration I needed and then the colours at Pals Paper Arts were fabulous too.


Just in case that card doesn't appeal to my customer, I have rustled up a similiar one using the truck from I Dig It and Real Red with Pacific Point. I like them both and have a grandson turning 2 this year as well, so I will keep the spare for him.
I used the large doiley from the Bigz l Perfect Pennants cut on my Big Shot of course. Punches used were the 2½ inch circle, 1 inch circle and the 1¼inch scallop circle. The number comes from that very useful set Memorable Moments.

I am entering these challenges:
