Country Livin' for GDP147

Happy Friday ya'll! It is HOT here in Texas - triple digits for the 6th day straight and it's only getting hotter.  So to cool off, I'm getting some stamping done today while the kids play inside.

I decided to play along with the fun theme at Global Design Project this week.  

I grew up in some rural Amish country of Pennsylvania where we were surrounded by farms and now that I live in Texas surrounded by some pretty vast ranches, I've always had a love for the farm/country life.

So for today's card, I decided to use the Country Livin' and Bard Door stamp sets.  I adore this pickup truck and love coloring it with Stampin' Blends.  I think the Bermuda Bay Blends with a little orange "rust" in there make this truck so interesting.

The Linen Thread and Corrugated Elements Heart add a sweet rustic detail.

I stamped the barn door onto some Wood Textures DSP for a fun background layer.

Finally, the sentiment is from Better Together stamp set.  I looked through many sets and when I saw this sentiment, I thought it'd be perfect for this ol' pickup.

Thanks for joining me today!  Have a blessed weekend!
