A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Drive Guy

Hi all, hope you're all keeping well and happy!  Today I am sharing a quick post with you all to show a card I made for a friend's son who passed his driving test - I always feel it's a huge milestone as it is the perfect ticket for that extra bit of freedom.  No more relying on public transport, friends or family ...... and the option to go where you want, when you want!  I remember passing my test (a whole 25 years ago ...... yikes).  It's such an amazing feeling and one which deserves celebrating :)

For my card I used a digi image from Bugaboo Stamps called Guy - car

I coloured this fab image up with copics and matted him on to my Maja Design papers.

I distressed the edges of the papers and added card candi around the sides.  
I added a little bit of fun by making up road signs on my computer to personalise the card for John :)

The 'L' and 'P' plates are also both coloured with copics.

I apologise for my super quick post today, but hope you all like my fun little take on this card :)
