Landrovers are for Boys!


Good morning me lovelies, hope you're all OK and enjoying a crafty week so far. I've not been able to print any papers or images for a few days as we ran out of ink and silly me had forgotten to stock up on cartridges. Calm has been restored now though as postie delivered the goods yesterday and the printer was working non-stop all evening!

I'd just like to thank everyone who has mentioned the 'clouds' I have been adding to my cards recently. Your words of encouragement have been brilliant and I'm getting braver with each and every image I colour in...anyone who vists my blog regularly will know that I lack confidence with my colouring and each and every comment means so much to me!

I'm sharing a card today that I made for my friends son for his 19th birthday.  He's absolutely besotted with Landrovers and I took to Google to try and find an appropriate image.  The background was embossed on my Hougie board and I'm actually quite liking the CAS design but had to add a bit of card candy...just because!

I'm entering this card into the following challenge...
Cards for Men #2...Transport (ends 3/2/13)

Image: Sourced from Google
Card Stock: SU! (Hunter Green)
Embellishments: Card Candy
Tools: Hougie Board
Sentiment: Created on the Computer and layered over the image.

Hi Donna ;) What a super CAS card, I just love the image you've found on Google! Fabulous! I know what you mean about the printer... I've been waiting for ink for over a week now and am getting very impatient! I'm feeling a bit better, thanks for asking, although the weather is naff! Oh, just to add, your clouds are just fab, keep it up girl! Shelly x

Right, that's it. Next time I see you, I am going to slap the backs of your knees. Your colouring rocks. The end. Land rovers are for boys. Or specifically mine, he's buying one when he's eaten enough vegetables to make his legs grow long enough to reach the pedals! You've never seen anyone eat a carrot so fast. Well, apart from Bugs Bunny. Anyway, super masculine card. The embossing looks great. X
