Stampin Up with Fiskars

One of my earliest stamp purchases was this cute flat bed vehicle by Stampin Up. It comes with all sorts of things you can put in the back.   It's been used only once before.   When I found a set of Fiskars sentiments, I knew I would combine one particular sentiment with the SU pick up truck.  Three year's later - I have done it!
I so liked the Dorcas-inspired hilly scene I made recently that I opted to do something similar but this time for a man so I have kept it VERY simple.  I've used my fabulous Memory Box die for the top again, inked up the sky (badly) with my brushes, the hill (better) with a dabber and coloured my pickup truck with a combo of Promarkers and Copics.

I'm entering my card into the "Anything Goes" Challenges at Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Crafty Emma's.  It is so sad to say goodbye to Emma and her lovely DT.  I'm also entering at Cupcake 192 who don't want to see any DPs (gasp!) on a birthday card!
