CSS Group Hop Sketch Challenge!!

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to the first CSS Group hop for April!!  You should have arrived from Melissa's blog, if not be sure to head over to Stamp TV to start at the beginning, you don't want to miss a thing!! Our challenge is a fabulous sketch by Brenda!!
Here is my take:
I decided to use my Country Roads set, I just love this little truck!!   I am anxiously awaiting for the car shows to start, I love seeing old trucks like this one.  Maybe some day I will be lucky enough to have one!!  :)  I colored a second tree top and popped it up with pop dots.  From the photo it looks like the tree goes over the side of the card but it doesn't.  I sponged the sky using Memento Summer Sky with a torn Post It.


Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, April 16.  Next on the hop is Linda!!
