This is my entry for the favorites category:

Pickup Truck Card By KatieJo

I kind of loosely took the inspiration from the Pintrest image that Karen already used for one of her cards.

BTW is the splotchy effect a bad thing on the technique cards??? I think technically I didn't put enough water for proper blending on the block every time but I really liked the rough edges on some of these.

No, the splotchy effect is not a bad thing. You are right about not having enough water. I did several before I got the ones I liked. I too like the splotchy effect.

I would like to share a couple more of my cards.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! By Scrapbookmonster

The "Happy St. Patrick's Day" card fits into two categories. For the product category, I used a heart shape punch to create the four clover. Also I used a circle punch to create the golden sun.

It also fits into the theme category. I put a smile on some people's faces for St. Patrick's Day. I made a card for my Mom; Dad; neighbor; and the TTC announcer at St. George subway station. I live in Toronto and travel via subway and buses to work. In the morning, the announcer speaks over the intercom at St. George subway station telling the southbound crowd to step back from the yellow line and don't block the doorway and deals with subway issues. Myself and many other TTC customers say good morning to her.

By the way, three subway stops south of St. George subway station there is a St. Patrick subway station.

Oooh.....I hope that doesn't mean bad things for you. If so, hoping things improve rapidly regardless of how it affects this of course.

No matter what, you do such a wonderful job hosting and thank you for it.... I can't believe how inspired by your card challenges. And so many of my friends and family really appreciate it too.

I do have two more entries for this month in any case....
