Inspired By Challenge

I'm back with another Challenge du Jour, this time playing along with Laurel and her team at the Inspired By Challenge Blog.  The theme this week is Truckload of Fall.

Fall in south Florida is pretty much nonexistent with the only noticeable change (if we're lucky) being a drop in the humidity.  I always refer to it as Faux Fall.  We pretend.  We don our shorts, tank tops and flip flops and head to one of the many piles of pumpkins set up along side the road where we take sweaty Faux Fall Photos. (Totally serious.)  Fall is definitely one of the things I've missed most in my 36 years as a resident of this lovely state.

Enough babble.  On to the challenge.  I am totally in love with this inspiration photo!

I love the colors, the truck and the pumpkins to I mimicked it with my supplies and came up with this...

You will probably recognize the truck die.  It was part of Spellbinders Large Die of the Month Club last fall.  I grabbed a subscription JUST to get this truck.  LOL!  The Thanks and the pumpkins are also part of the same set.  The stamped sentiment is from a set by Honey Bee Stamps.  I did some minor stamp surgery to use just a portion of the included sentiment. I also used some rustic cream cardstock by PaperTrey Ink (one of my all time favs) as well as wood grain cardstock by  Ellen Hutson LLC. It's a fabulous 110 lb weight and perfect for card bases.  

Here's a closer look at the details....

Is it shameful to admit that you love one of your own creations????  'Cause I do love this card.  I may have to hoard it.  If any of you happen to receive it one day, you will know you're definitely loved.  

Your time is always appreciated.  Go out there and take some non sweaty fall photos for me, will ya?  Til next time...
