Hope this isn't too young!

I came back from my babysitting session at my daughter's on Sunday and luckily had the day off yesterday to catch up with washing and ironing. Well I did wash but I managed to leave the ironing till today. I decided that yesterday I should try to make a card for my son's birthday and make a start on my latest DT kit from Simply Create.

Iain likes cars - massive understatement - he works in the service department of a big garage in Aberdeen. I can't really be surprised as my eldest brother is a motor engineer and my other brother was pretty good at fixing cars too. Not sure Iain'll appreciate the image on this card though since he'll be 34 on his birthday. Not sure how he can be that age. Just seems no time since he was a wee boy!

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
DP :- Prima.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Buttons, string and ribbon from stash.

I should even manage to enter some challenges this week.
Penny Black :- Sketch.
Cards for Men :- Happy Birthday.
Cupcake :- Boys and their Toys.
One Stitch at a Time :- Embellish it - buttons and ribbon.

I made 2 cards and a little gift bag from my Simply Create kit last night and I've got something to alter so I'm going to try to do that tonight. But I'll post them all tomorrow.

Thanks for looking and if you have time to leave a comment I can come over and visit you too.
