Vroom, Vroom!

I've had a busy day today with cards. My friend came over this afternoon and we got some cards made for the communion tokens. I think the lady who asked if I'd make them will be surprised when she sees how many I've got ready. I still need to make some to hold 4 tokens as we've just made the single token ones so far. I would have made some tonight but I really needed to make a birthday card for my big brother. Even at my age I think of Jim and Hugh as my big brothers as they are 12 & 9 years older than me. Jim is the eldest and his birthday is on Friday so I need to post his card today!

I used :-
Image :- Hero Arts.
Sentiment & Card Candi :- Craftwork Cards.
DP :- DCWV - Linen Closet.
Buttons  and string.

Isn't this paper gorgeous and just perfect for a male card. I think the image is perfect for a male card too, especially for my brother. He's a time served motor engineer and latterly had his own business for over 30 years. Hope he likes it! I had to add the buttons after I managed to get ink on the image when I stamped the "Happy Birthday." What a clumsy idiot I am!

I'm entering the following challenges :-
Cupcake :- Sketch.
Craft Your Days Away :- Birthday.
A Spoon Full of Sugar :- Birthday.
Pile it On :- Blue, blue, blue - use 3 shades of blue.

I have to work today as my colleague is going to a funeral so it looks like I'm going to be at the last minute with my DT card for Totally Gorjuss - again!!

Thanks for looking, hope you like?
