"Something 'bout a truck, in a farmer's field'....is the tune. by Kip Moore, that kept goin' throug my mind as I spied this truck stamp on the shelf at HB. Lordy, what do I need with a truck stamp, but just had to bring it home. It just screamed to be colored 'red'. (Note: no Copics were harmed or thrown around the room as I colored this - I thought I might need this disclaimer as I understand there are Copics flying around rooms in California).
As I worked on this it became just to darned much fun......when we were living in the Lou we had 'vanity plates' - My husband was Kush 1 and I was Kush 2 - they were affixed to what the neighbors commonly referred to as the 'Kushmobiles'. We didn't get away with much since everyone knew our cars. I recently hit 100,000 miles on my baby and look forward to another 100,000 in her. May have to consider me one of those 'hybrids' for my next one since I'll be retirement age and saving my pennies. I'll also be needing a new 'vanity' plate now that we live in Georgia, I'm thinking the one rockin on this truck is pretty appropriate...."I'm a Hybrid, I run on Wine and Chocolate" - not sure how much its going to cost to get all that on a plate. LOL!!! Life is just to darned fun!

Lawdy Kush! You do tell a right fiiiine story girl! Um.....no copics harmed, that is lovely! Although, according to some, that flinging action does cause the colors to become richer, and deeper, so they say....
Love-love-love the custom Kushmobile, and in delish red too! Awesome lil forest happenin' the the bg too I see. Yes, another enabling moment! (I am so telling Kittie!) Lol. I do believe I'd go hybrid as well, if'n they do come out in chocolate and Merlot! Yes...that would do. Fabulously made card my friend. Lovin' ever' purdy inch! Lymi, hugs.....

Well, cowgirl, you sure know how to grab yourself a ride!! You really worked your magic with the copics (glad you are not flinging them like they do in CA!)
This turned into a pretty cool side step card, especially adding the forest in the BG - great papers to use with your newest stamp - a ride still - just not with four LEGS!
LOVED your story, and as far as the new vanity plate - you might need a TRAILER to haul that one!! LYMI - hugs!
