Country Livin'

Now here is a subject that is near and dear to my heart! Not only are we finally living our dream of living in the country, but I love old trucks (especially old green ones!), and this one just tickles me. We are sooo in need of a farm truck, because hauling stuff in the utility trailer is a pain in the patoot. But I digress.....

This was one of the cards we made in the Second Saturday Stamp Club this weekend. It's quick to watercolor with an Aqua Painter and the beauty of it is, you don't need to be precise! If you miss a spot, that's okay. If you color out of the lines a bit, that's okay too. It adds character!
