I made several of these cards for upcoming birthdays of my brother in laws and father in law, all of whom live in different cities and far apart! The inside sentiment reads
" Let the Good Time Roll! " I liked this fun image of the Gruffie careening down a hill in fear! :) This is one time I wish I had a bullet tip on my red copic, because it was impossible to not let the copic red 29 seep into the writing on the side of the wagon. The wagon is covered with Diamond Glaze and the reds in the patterned paper are closer to the real red that it looks in the photo. If you look closely, you will see a chevron in a different pattern in the midst of the basic gray paper . That's my MFT die - chevron - punch tally - 1/2? :)
Thanks for looking!

This is a fun card Debzi! I remember my wagon days fondly - I sure hope kids these days still play with them. I am pretty sure if I got in a wagon today this is exactly what would happen to me and it wouldn't be on purpose. You know, after awhile, the white paint on those wagons would kind of scuff off and look like it does on this card so you did good. I love the at paper! Hugz!!!

Oh, now you have SECRET CODING in your cards Ms. Debzi? It's disguised with this adorable gruffie card. You sure haven't lost your spying abilities. I guess the break you had updating all your spy tech has really paid off here. I truly think this is the most cute card. Great coloring and I feel like I'm falling down a hill right with him. Zee Fruitcake doesn't know if she can fit in that there spy wagon; but, if she could, she would. Is he off doing a secret mission for you? There's no way anyone would think a gruffie was capable of such a thing. Please send your report to me ASAP and give me the upload of your new high tech spying program. It's up to us to keep the world safe. I LOVE playing with you my super duper Agent 9999. So good to have you back!!!!!!

Oh, super, super fun, Debzi! I love how Gruffie is zooming down the hill in the bright red (and expertly colored) wagon! Great sentiment choice for the inside, too. This card design is going to make so many birthday boys and girls happy!!
