Have a Great Summer Vacation!

Hello everybody! How are you today? Hope you are feeling just as excited as I am with my seaside vacation just one day away! Wooohoo! Can't wait! In the meantime, I thought I would make a boy card for a change.
Our challenge theme at Digital Pencil Too settled by my super talented teamie Elaine is "Summer vacation!" Well, currently I'm on a babysitting vacation hehe and my house seems to be always on vacation too! We have a hard time finding a path through all the toys and cars and my 2 year old says the word "truck" (yes, in English, no idea why because I only speak French with him...lol... and we are Romanian...hehe) about 100 times a day, much more often than Mama or Dad, not to mention food related stuff which are totally uninteresting:)

So I found this cute little boy among Mo's older images in the old shop and just had to color it up. The wheel is one of the many of many sizes I collect from all over the place about 3 times a day, so I thought I would add one to my card:) When my boy saw the card he immediately exclaimed: "trucky" , I guess on the same tone as Archimedes screamed "Eureka" about 2 thousand years ago...lol. He didn't even noticed the boy. We eat, sleep and bath with about 10 cars of all sizes set in a very precise order.
Well, that's about my little one. He's so spoiled, nothing he does could make us angry...poor manipulated parents:))

Now, on to my card:

Recipe: 
Stamp: Mo Manning- Zoom
Coloring medium: Promarkers
DP: Echo Park- Little Boy- digital,
Embellishments: wheel from child's stash...lol, Tim Holz film strip ribbon, charm from Bunny Zoe
Misc; Cuttlebug embossing folder, antique linen DI.
Sentiments: the tickets are freebies from the internet

Brilliant card, Iulia! You know you'll have to save this card for him, don't you?lol
My nephews are into tractors and maschines. In particular, garbage trucks which are the most fascinating of all. :-D They even rip up paper and tissue to make "garbage" for their trucks to pick up.
Great to have you on the team, Iulia~!

This is just stunning. love the bright colors you chose, and I love your story about your little one and the word truck. When my 17 year old son was little, he never went anywhere without a truck or car in his pocket. He loved them.. and yes, we still have them...

Great job with the challenge..but then again, you never ever disappoint..your work is just amazing.

Enjoy your seaside adventure
