The horse brand story...

Not-all-those-who-wander-are-lost

The other day, we took a different route to the playground and walked past a house with a snazzy yellow sports car parked in front of it.

Nephew #2 pointed to it excitedly and shouted to me,"It's the same car as yours Aunt Y! The horse brand!"
Nephew #1 corrected him immediately, "That's a Ferrari silly! Not horse brand!"


Guess only Nephew #1 was paying attention when I talked about my Ferrari. The toy one I have in my bedroom. *LOL* 


[This card which features the use of woodgrain was first shared in the Three Cool Chicks' Let's Get Trendy Now! workshop held in May.]

Supplies: My Mind's Eye and Bazzill patterned papers, Sizzix embossing folder, Ranger distress inks, glossy accents and crackle paint, EK Success punch, burlap, brad.

I LOVE THIS! The burlap is so perfect, and I love the crackle details. Best of all is that hilarious story - reminds me of my boys. Youngest is a car FANATIC and the oldest is the kind who says it's a red car.
