I Dig You

Today we are celebrating by sweet nephews "2" birthday.  My sister made his invitations using the I Dig You Stamp Set so I thought I would keep with the theme and use that same set.  She used the cute little dump truck, but I decided to change it up a bit and go with the digger instead.  I pieced it together so the arm and bucket actually move!  This idea came from Lisa Martz over at Get Your Stamp On.  The pieces are held together with silver brads and instead of going with bright colors I decided to use some regals...Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and More Mustard.  I also really love the clouds and how the one looks as though it is shadowing the sun.  I just simply used a Sponge Dauber and sponged Whisper White Craft Ink onto the card stock.

Today is also the first day of Preview Week over at Create with Connie and Mary and Mary has an awesome tutorial posted to give you a taste of what the New Catalog Edition has to offer.  She is also giving away some blog candy...a free subscription to the Edition.  So make sure you stop by her blog, StamperCamper's Corner, and leave her a comment for a chance to win.  I also have a special treat for you tomorrow so make sure you stop back by.  It's going to be an exciting week!  Take care.

Supplies:  I Dig You Stamp Set, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue, More Mustard, Soft Suede & Whisper White card stock, More Mustard, Basic Black, Soft Suede & Night of Navy Classic Ink, Whisper White Craft Ink, Cherry Cobbler & Night of Navy Stampin' Write Markers, 1 3/4 in. & 1/2 in.

Such an awesome card! I am sure it was a big hit! The mounds of dirt are fantastic and I love the moving parts on the digger!
