You take your white c/s (2 1/2 x 3) stamp your truck, color it w/ a red marker, color the wheels, front & back bumpers w/ a black pencil, take your 2 way glue add some to that part above the wheels (whatever it is called), sprinkle glitter & shake off. Sponge a little blue ink to the top of the c/s. Take your eyelet hand punch & make a hole in the center of each wheel & set an eyelet in each. Stamp your hearts in 3 different colors (I used red, gray & black). Mount your truck to black c/s & run a piece of gimgham across it, taping it to the back. Run a piece of Magic Mesh across your gray c/s & stick it to the back. Take your silver cord, fold in 1/2, feed the LOVE charm through it & tape the cord to the back. Mount everything together.
** I buy my Mesh from Home Depot, it is a huge inexpensive roll that they use to put walls together.
It only comes in white.

I love how you used the gray cardstock on this. Very unique use of the heart from Little Layers, as well! Your cards have wonderful form. The charm is the perfect touch. I use the same drywall tape. Cute card!
The difference between an ordinary life and an extraordinary life is finding extraordinary things in an ordinary life.
