And Finally

Hi folks, yeah I have finished my last card for Stuart, the one from his Mummy.  As I mentioned on his second card he is well into Formula 1 and Sebastian Vettel in particular.  I went to the Red Bull Racing site and they had downloadable free wallpaper, so the image on the card is a section of this.  I tried originally to make the backing paper from another piece of  the free wallpaper but the colours didn't work, so I went to my trusty Cuddly Buddly folder and sure enough I found some papers that work.    I cut the matts with my Craft Robo, quite pleased with the result  - but boy did I waste a lot of card lol.  To get the scalloped edge I drew one big circle and then spent ages putting little circles all round the edge to form the scallops, wasn't to pleased with the result.  Then I had a Eureka moment and decided to try scanning a real nestie and it worked.  I asked Crafty Ann for some help because she is a whizz with the Robo and she has given me a link to a U-Tube tutorial, so hopefully I will be able to make different shaped matts in future.....Thanks Ann. 

I have followed Sketch58 over at Papertake Weekly

I hope you like my tribute to Mr. Vettel and many thanks for visiting
