Have a wheely great day!

Hello all!
Apologies for the very poor pun but it is Monday morning after all.  I'm just adding a quick post as I want to get this card in for a couple of challenges I like to do -  a very simple card using one of my digis available from Etsy shop.   I bought a vintage Sears catalogue on one of our junking trips and have digitally cleaned some of the copyright free images to use as digital stamps.
                       I have always liked the look of those prints that have an image printed over a text-filled page from a dictionary or something similar and as I also have an old dictionary from yet another junking trip, I decided to try it.  I taped a sheet from the dictionary onto a regular piece of printer paper and ran it through the printer - it worked just fine.
               I added a touch of colour with the card mat, some washi tape and a dymo tape sentiment and that's all folks!


                       Entering the challenges at Addicted to CAS , Addicted to Stamps and More , Crafting by Designs , Little Red Wagon , Brown Sugar and Fussy and Fancy.


Thanks for stopping by!
