Just Add Wheels

The Just Add Ink Team have combined with the Helping Hudson Fundraiser gals to bring you this week's challenge - JUST ADD WHEELS!!!

Here's my DT submission -

A Wheel Card


... with a stamped wheel image (skateboard)
and a Jumbo Wheel (Neighborhood)


The Four Pictures within the Wheel


Over at the Hudson Fundraising Site, a group of very dedicated ladies have put together a wonderful blog to help raise money for little Hudson who needs a Kid Walker! There's a competition posted every day and three challenges every week, plus a heap of amazing tutorial packs to buy. Why don't you check out this 'Wheely Great Cause'? The link is on my side bar and at the beginning of this post.


With my card for this week, I also went with the idea of a birthday card for a little boy!! I think Hudson will be turning three next birthday??

I cracked open my pack off Ballet Blue Cardstock and took the wrapping off the matching ink pad that I had bought months ago to combine with the bright, Real Red for a 'junior' look (but alas ... Ballet Blue is about to retire after I've just 'discovered' its appeal).



Here's the List of Bits 'n' Bobs that I used to make the Wheel Card -
Stamp Sets: All in the Family, Family Favourites, Family Accessories Too, Neighborhood Jumbo Wheel, Family Phrases
Cardstock: Ballet Blue, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Ballet Blue, Real Red
Accessories: Real Red Stampin' Write Marker, White Gel Pen, Jumbo White Brad, Dimensionals, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Die, Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon (from Summer Mini Catalogue)

The FREE TEMPLATE for the Wheel Card is from Victorine Originals.

Happy Crafting and enjoy the weekend. I know I will because I'll finally get a chance to play with my new pre-order goodies!! Can't wait.


PS: I've just discovered this card was chosen for Nancy Riley's iPicks! I feel very honoured. I love checking out her 'selections' each week - so inspirational! (August 30th)

What a clever idea for the wheels challenge! I love the fun images you used for the wheel - I reckon my Mr 2 would love this to bits (quite possibly literally) if I made him one when he turns 3.
