73-Best Wishes, Charles

I think I have finally almost recovered from allergies that started two weeks ago. Saying that, I hope I will be uploading a few more cards than I did last week.

Today the tea potters are making cards for Charles in NY who has been diagnosed with cancer. With all Charles has had to endure in the last several years, I think he is like a Ford, yep, Ford tough. I didn't know much about ham radio so I googled some of their lingo to make banners coming out of the bed of the truck. The #73 is best wishes in ham radio "talk". Wishing you the very best, Charles.

The stamp I used for this card is by Printworks. I used Paper Studio and Stampin Up papers.
The copics I used to color the truck - YR09,07,04. I also used a silver pen for the bumper and chrome. I usually use another paper for coloring with copics, but I stamped this on Georgia Pacific paper and did not realize it until I started trying to blend my colors. Hmmm, it did not blend as well as my Crogen paper.

Thanks, for stopping by.
