Thanks for the lift!

As I write this blog post it is 7 degrees outside and snow is everywhere.  We got 13.5" of snow on Thursday and it dropped fast, just like the weather man said it would.  When I left for work there were just flurries when the office closed at Noon I couldn't get my car out of the  parking lot because of the snow.  Thankfully one of the guys I work with has a 4x4 and he made sure a few of us got home.  I am very thankful for his kindness and thoughtfulness and I wanted to show my appreciation. 

 It was the perfect card to make to use my Star Dust Stickles, which is the color of the week for a new site that I stumbled across All That Stickles I have no idea how a Stickle lover like me didn't know about that site before!  LOL! 

Base - White Bazzill
Patterned Cardstock - TPC - Christmas Village - Winter Woodland
Cricut Cartridge - Father's Day
The truck was made using paper scraps from my stash including the "silver" rims.
Stickles - Star Dust
