Get a Load of this!

The youngest son of our good friends turned 9 this week (he is a month older than my twins who are his good buddies).  I created this fun card for him and I think he is going to love it!
 I mean, what 9-year-old boy wouldn't love a card full of trucks and heavy equipment!?  And this one has an extra fun element: I created my first ever penny slider!!  You can see how the truck gets filled up with a LOAD at the top of the hill and then rolls down to the bottom of the hill.  It's so fun!!

I got some slider dies from Lawn Fawn a couple weeks ago, and of course, I had to put them to use!  And this will definitely NOT be the last one I make.  It was so fun!

Stamps: YNS "Keep on Truckin'"
Dies: Lawn Fawn "Slide On Over" and "Stitched hillsides"; MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle

What a fun and interactive boy card! I'm sure he'll have fun swinging the truck back and forth for days. heeehee. I like the little details and even the clouds in the background look very nice and the colors. Good job!
