hitchin a ride

so i came up with the idea for this card this morning when i was playing on the floor with the little menn (the littlest mann has a toy alligator). and all day, i was like, must-make-card, must-make-card. ha ha!! so i squeezed in some crafty time between naps, work, and oh, just naps and work. but it felt like there was a lot more squeezing happening! lol! 

so this card is for the awesome designer drafts sketch challenge at paper smooches sparks, and i had fun every step of the way! :)

here's the sketch:

and here's my card:

the alligator is perhaps, one of the cutest things i've seen! ha ha! he's paper pieced! the clouds and the bird is fussy cut, which was then outlined for a fun factor!

the they were all popped up onto a square of the same patterned paper! i think that's so neat! lol! 
the grass is popped up too (lots of dimension on this card!!), and the sentiment is heat embossed.

i was like, who hasn't ever asked for a ride from a friend, right? or carpooled together with a friend on a road trip? ha ha!

well that's it! hope tonight is filled with crafty-time for everyone!
