{ CPS #182, car caddy and trip photos }

I finally made a card! I used CPS  #182. I think a month went by without making anything crafty! I sat down and used whatever was left over on my messy desk, as always. October Afternoon paper, Tattered Angels tag that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist, Prima flower and Impression Obsession stamp Thanks Sentiments (CL41). It felt great.

I made this car caddy for Alex the day before we left for our trip. It was something I saved long time ago. Jill at Homemade by Jill has the tutorial I used. We took it on the plane for him to play with and it was a hit!

I cut up an old pair of jeans and made everything here, even the strap with the velcro closure.

I used fusible web for the car appliqué and the felt wheels. How about that decorative stitch? Used it for the first time.
