My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

20 October 2010

Boys And Their Toys!

Morning everyone, well its a gorgeous Sunny day here in Coventry, but my god is it cold .... we even had frost this morning! Brrrr! I don't do cold weather and it looks like its kicking in now.

Only another 3 days to go at work, then finish for a week for half term, so I am looking forward to that and being able to get into the craft room much more.

Here's a card I made yesterday which is for one of Mark's mates as he is leaving work tomorrow - and yes he drives a digger just like this! I always struggle with men's cards at the best of times and given only a day to complete and find a digger image, made it a little more difficult than normal, but I located one and came up with this, so I hope he appreciates it LOL! I had to freehand the Volvo text on the image.

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:-

For this card I used:-

  • Daisy Doodles Digger Digi Image
  • Hobbycraft Cardstock with Sizzix Dots Embossing Folder
  • Buttons from Stash
  • American Crafts Ribbon
  • Promarkers
  • Dovecraft Funky Vintage Papers

Would love to know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by today and whatever you are up to enjoy!
