Simple wheel challenge

Here's a quickie card I did for Sharon's (notimetostamp) blog challenge. The challenge is to make a card using wheels as your main focal point. I *love* my wheels, but don't use them nearly enough, so I really thought this was a great challenge. Wheels are the best when you need a really cute card, but don't have the time to break out all your stamps. I colored in parts of the main image with markers to help tie the colors together. A few little loops of ribbon and some brads ~ which, btw, I probably should've done a different color because I think they blend in with image a little too much ~ are just enough to add a little extra *cuteness* to this card. And it just wouldn't be one of my cards if it didn't have piercing or faux stitching on it! The sentiment if from one of the Take Three stamps inked up with a marker.

Well, this weekend I really kicked it up a notch {BAM! think Emeril} and started cleaning and organizing and all that other fun stuff - NOT - in preparation for our big move to Katy, TX. We don't want to bring any stuff back with us that we no longer need or want. And so... the fun has begun and won't end until we get everything packed (by a gov. contracted mover, thank God!) around the end of October!! The good news is a great customer of mine would like me to do a workshop for her in early November which gives me an even better excuse to hold onto some of my stampin' supplies even after the packers are long gone! I've been trying to come up with a way to tell my dh {dearest hubby} that I really *NEED* to keep some supplies here so I didn't have to go so long without my beloved *rubbah and ink*!! And now I have the perfect excuse!! Because really, once everything has been packed and shipped, what am I going to do for the next month until we fly outta here?!! Yes, of course, hit the beach ~ duh!! But in between doing that, a-stampin' I will be!!! Have a great one!!
