Loads Of Wishes

When I saw this stamp in the new release I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!
I had big plans for this stamp and then everything that could go wrong did. 

The first time I coloured this stamp I was at my brother's cottage and couldn't find the light switch at 5:30 a.m. so I coloured by flashlight. Needless to say, when I saw it in "real" light....I couldn't use it. So I coloured it again and this time my middle and lightest shades of red both pretty much ran out at the same time when I was almost done... I won't continue with the rest of the drama.......

Instead I would like to introduce you to "Old Truck, Presents, Christmas Tree" and the "Loads of Wishes" sentiment from the Fall/Winter Fun new release. 

I coloured my Old Truck, Presents and Christmas Tree stamps with alcohol markers and then fussy cut them out. I put the presents in the bed of the box and decided to make the tree part of my scene although it does fit perfectly in the back of the truck by itself as well. I added my "pieces" to some stitched hill snow banks and paper from Carta Bella's - Christmas Delivery 6x6 pad. Some Silver Wink of Stella was added to a few of the bows and the "chrome" pieces on the truck. The sentiment is stamped and cut with a stitched square die. Some snowflakes and gumdrops finish off my card.
