I survived the closing shift.

 It was a long night but I made it through. Learned a lot of what has to be done to close a restaurant. Made it home by 2 AM, had to unwind and was asleep a little after 3. Luckily I have today off and have been busy working on some great challenges. The first one is from The Play Date Cafe. It's a color challenge.

I went through my stash and found this piece of Faux Barn siding I had made a few weeks ago. I decided on this old truck from SU. Colored it with pencil and Gamsol. Layered the light green and light blue card stocks. Used the same colors on my truck. This is a great image to color. I have another truck and was never happy with it but this one looks good every time.

     A while back I did a red, black & white challenge. This was one of the card bases I had made but just couldn't make it work. I found it today and these scalloped shapes I had also cut out for that challenge and couldn't make them work either. Today they all went together in no time. I had colored this Poinsettia last week and to me it was perfect. One more Christmas card finished.
