On The Road Again

Lately my mojo just seems to have disappeared...I'm not sure if it is due
to 'crashing' after the mad rush to get all my Christmas cards made and in
the mail, or it is the unrelenting and unprecedented HOT weather. 

One way to get back 'into the zone' is to have family and friends' birthdays, so
the pressure is on to get creative. January contained quite a few birthdays, and
several of them were for a family of friends who were neighbours when we 
lived on our farm. 

One of their dear little boys turned 2, and of course all little boys love anything
 with wheels. Therefore the theme of the card I made for him was a 'no-brainer'.

At a papercraft show a couple of years ago I bought a packet of these little
wooden cars, embellished with glitter (I also bought a packet of cute
pirates). I 'squirreled' them away and forgot about them, until
looking at the fab paper triggered a memory.
The '2' is a peel-off sticker, coloured with Promarkers.

I created the sentiment on the computer. All the tiny stars were silver
peel-off stickers, coloured with Promarkers to match the vehicles
on the paper.

'Tis a pity the photos do not do justice to the gorgeous bright colours
of the paper, but when I finished the card the sky was very overcast,
but I had to get the card in the post in time for little Keiran to
receive it on his birthday.

Paper - I THINK it is Upkit Enterprise (or maybe Best Creations)...I only had a small piece left.

Until Next time, thank you for visiting,
