Paint Party Friday and Kristin's collage sheets...

Didn't really have much time for "art-ing" this week.  Work was busy and getting ready to have 3 of our grandkids for the weekend.  BUT, I loved Kristin's collage sheets she posted...so of course, printed them and ... made a card for my husband.  We have been together 13 years and he is in auto racing.  He travels alot and each trip I tuck a card or note in his lugguage or book or briefcase... he saves every one of them...trust me there are lots!  So I just quickly did this card using Kristin's sheets to help me along the way...that is supposed to be me on my Sportster!
No, he is not the driver...but a team doesn't do well if they crash.  Also, they fly to the tracks they go to, drive all over where ever they are so I always tell him to have a Great Race and Don't Crash.  So, for Paint Party Friday this is what I have to share.  Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting.  Thanks so much for checking in - I can't wait to make the rounds to see all the great "art-ing".  It may take me a few days... an 8 yr old, 5 yr old and 2 yr old will have most of my attention throughout the weekend.!

cheers, dana

Dana..love the card you did! Have fun with your grandkids..mine are similar ages..7,6 and 3...they live with us!!! looking forward to hearing about the fun you had with them!!! We get the day to day stuff...none of the fun fill-em-up-with-crap and send them home kind of fun: the plus side is really wtching them grow and learn and being the major part of it!!
hugs!
