VROOOM!!! {The Pink Elephant Sketch Challenge #110}

AND the 1st of the month too!!! 
I cannot believe that it is August already! Things are whizzing by way too fast lately! 
So, since it's a Monday and the first, I wanna start it all off on the right foot! 
Going to straighten up and organize a bit and later on, my kiddos are going to go for some fun playtime, which means that ME gets to have some alone time :)  Un-interrupted alone time! Love my kiddos "to infinity and beyond" but I do cherish my bits of quietness and relaxation :) 

Another fabulous way to start off the week is with another 
This week we have an amazing sketch and generous sponsor,
The DT was so very lucky to have the honor of choosing a stamp set to create with! 
and I, of course, had to go with this sweet buggy set called "Vroom" 
I LOOOVE this lil BUGGY!!!
For my first card, I created the card below, hee hee! 
I wanted to do more with this set and sketch, so I created this second card too, which I heart so much!!!
This time, I used the smaller buggy stamp, colored her up (cause we all know, all cars are girls, right?!) and just started layering, layering, layering! Yes, you can now add pop-dots to my latest craze/addiction ;) 

See the layers :)

Here is the original card I created! 
I paper-pieced the ENTIRE buggy except for the actual black tire part! 
Oh how I wish I had a buggy like this! I've always wanted a VW convertible!!! I want it with a cow-print interior and a cow horn!!! LOL! I've seen/heard it done, it exists! Not legal to honk a moo horn, but you can add in a button for kicks ;) 

Sorry, almost forgot, since Blogger is being a poop again this morning... 
Here's the amazing sketch!!! 

Be sure to check out the rest of the DTs beautiful creations :)
