I'm Back

Good afternoon.  I got back from my holiday last Saturday morning, but what with all the housey stuff that needed doing after leaving my OH home alone for two weeks this is the first day I have had time to have a play.

My card is for my neighbour's Great-Grandson Rylee.  Granddad is a collector of die cast lorries and Rylee has caught the bug.  I didn't have any stamps or images of lorries so I asked my good friend Ann of Crafty Ann's Digi Shop if she could draw me one.  This is the result and it is available from her shop.  I took the image into Craft Artist and played around with text so that I could personalise the lorry, then printed it and coloured with a red Promarker and some grey Spectrum Noir pens.  The backing paper is from Cuddly Buddly which I again took into Craft Artist to change the colour to match the text.  I have gone with the red and white theme because Rylee's birthday present is a red lorry. The red is much darker in real life and not pink as it appears in the pic.

As Ann drew the image at my request I think that it is only right that I should enter my card into her Challenge this week - It's A Man Thing

Many thanks for you visit
