Alota Bug Father's Day

Ok this is gonna be quick - there is a major storm over us right now and I keep loosing my satellite which means I loose my Internet... the lightning and thunder are unbelievable!

Alota has NEW STAMPS!!! Ok, I told you there were lots of fabulous new bugs yesterday - but there is also a new set that if you have a boy or a man in your life that likes his "toys" then you will want the Transportation set!! They are the perfect size to work with many of our character stamps... This is the pickup truck from the set... I just love it - me being a "farm" girl and all... LOL people that know me really laugh at that statement I am sure! I added the Lazy Cowboy bug in the back of the truck... he is just chillin enjoying the day don't you think? Colored with my Copics.
My card started with a dark brown card stock - then I added a piece of BoBunny pattern paper - the green is the back side of the plaid print - love when I don't have to think about things matching. I added a brown twill ribbon and the "Slow Down" which is from My Minds Eye and seemed to go with truck and telling Dad to take it easy for this father's day card. Doodled the edge with a brown glaze pen. The heart is from Heidi Swapp and then a few odd buttons -
You still have a few days to get in on the Alota Rubber Stamps PCP challenge... a man's card - I think this one fits really well!
Well better get this posted before I loose it again - hopefully later today I can get back on!
Have a great Wednesday -
HUGS and
