Hi Stampers:

Definition of REMEMBER (from Merriam-Webster):  to bring to mind or think of again <remembers the old days>.  When I first started making this card, it brought back so many memories of my Grandfather.  

  1. Going with him to the trash dump site in his old truck. 
  2. Or sneaking out to eat at the local cafe after church. 

 I'm sure there is an old truck somewhere in your memories.

Countryside copy 
The truck and surroundings were colored in using a combination of Stampin' Write markers and a blender pen.  It's easy to achieve a beautiful watercolor effect using a marker and a blender.  And the tip cleans off with just a couple of strokes on scratch paper so you only need a couple for all your blending needs.

I colored the apples with the Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Marker.  I first thought of coloring them red (for red delicious apples – my favorite!) but I wanted a red truck so green it was.  My husband's favorite apple is the Granny Smith Apple – do you have a favorite?

The sentiment is from the In a Word Stamp Set – it's retired but you can still get it as a digital download. The pattern paper is from Love Letter Designer Series Paper.  The background was spritzed using the Color Spritzer Tool and Soft Suede Stampin' Write Marker.  I also lightly spritzed the sentiment for a cohesive look.

Thanks for stopping by today

    This truck brings back cherished memories of my granddaddy as well! Oh I long for those simpler times! :)
    Your card is simply exquisite with your coloring/blending and design! The houndstooth paper was the perfect choice to bring out, and coordinate, with the image panel! This will definitely go into my favorites pile! :) I missed my chance to get the sentiments set, but am so glad to know digitals are available!
