CARS Birthday Card!

Happy Friday, everyone! This is a birthday card for my nephew, Ethan, who is turning three, and is nuts over the CARS movies! It's amazing to me how kids can memorize an entire movie, reciting word for word and gestures too, even from another room while the movie is playing!

Today's Free4All Challenge at Splitcoast is "Cards With Character"....too create a card for someone according to their likes or hobbies. This one definitely fits the bill!

Okay, so there is no stamping on the front.....the signs and characters were recycled from a Town House cracker box, but the ocean, sky, and road were sponged to create the rest of the scene.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a very blessed weekend!

Great idea! What better way to recycle and after all it is about creating something personal for the recipient!!! Your nephew will LOVE this card.

Hi Angie~

This is adorable! My 2 youngest grandsons LOVE the CARS! This is a great card. I like the angle of the characters. Your sponging is amazing! That ocean and sky are seamless...and I love the highlighting on the water!

I too, am using boxes on cards. I am in love with some of the tissue boxes. They make great masculine backgrounds! Now, we buy our tissues based on the cards I need to make! LOL

They will love this card! Thanks for sharing your creativity!

He IS Able!
