We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

The tiny wheels go round and round ...

Over at the Craft Barn, this week's challenge word is Transport - mmmm - for some time I've had a Memory Box die of three tiny vehicles; can't remember why I bought it, but I must have had a good idea at the time!  Anyway, I've never used it ...

...so, perfect for a Father's Day card, which is on the 21st. I used Distress Inks to bump a stencil, then die-cut the cars out of some coppery coloured card.  The tiny wheels are separate, and I can't tell you how many I lost in the process, they just seemed to go off by themselves, and I had to cut some more!

I'm just a little bit of a fanatic when it comes to grammar, and I've just noticed the apostrophe is missing from my father's day stamp, so I'll have to add one!

Happy June time.


  1. Love how your background fades a the edges and those tiny cars look great. But I know what you mean about small die-cuts getting lost! Sometimes I use a length of removal tape (or washi) to stock these pieces until I'm ready to use them.

  2. Love the striking background. What patience and deft fingers you must have to glue on the wheels individually.
