Firstly Donna over at Cards for men has invited me onto the design team. Which I was very pleased to accept. So this is my very first DT card.
The sponsor this week is Sunshine stamps and the theme is humourous. Well I certainly had fun using this image.
All the images have been hand drawn by Sunshine or Rob.
So if your ever looking for a real fun image then this is a great place to visit. There are lots of super vechicle images just right for the men/boys in your life.
I have used Tractor to make this card, as it reminded me of Sherlock Holmes because of the Deer stalker hat. my bil loves this programe on tv and its his birthday soon, so this was just the right image for the job.
Ive coloured him with Promarkers,
and the papers and the sentiment were computer generated.
I added the brads and the string elements for effect.

The image is AJ on his bicycle from Stamping Boutique. Coloured with Promarkers.
dp from stash the sentiment is computer generated. faux brads from craftwork cards
I have pierced around the dp and laid to strips diagonally which has also been pierced
The card looks pink, but it is red, must be the light or maybe me, cause Im a real dumbo with the camera (lol)
After nearly a week Ive decided to my act together and do a couple of challenge cards, I did make last weeks Promarker challenge card, but the batteries in my camera decided to die one me. (dont you just hate it when that happens lol).
Plus I had great friends visiting me for the weekend, Viv and Pam arrived on thursday, for a crafty break. Which was fabulous fun, We all went to the Farnborough Make it show on saturday, it was a little disapointing though, not a patch on other years. but the weekend was over all too soon. Miss you already gals and thanks for all the laughs, a much needed tonic, after all the dreary winter weather.
