AJ The Race Car Driver


It's my Brother in Law's birthday tomorrow and this is the card I have made for him using a fab dig by Stamping Boutique. I have stayed with the red white and blue theme as I have been enjoying making cards in these colours and love how vibrant it is. I think it may become a favourite colour scheme for male cards :)

I have used a sketch form Eat Sleep Stamp Thursday for the layout and more of the blue Colorbok star paper which I still had out from the last couple of cards I made. I only have a small amount of the sheet left so may well incorporate it into another card rather than add it to the mountain of scraps I am sure we all have.

I have of course coloured my image with Promarkers. It seems as if I can't make a card without them these days. Using a graphics programme I added the number 1 to the front of the car. I also created a star with the You're #1 sentiment in it as he is a great guy and has made Paul's sister so very happy. This is her second marriage and all we have ever wanted is for her and our nephew to be happy and settled. He works very hard running his own business with my SIL and after a long hard slog it is starting to show the rewards for them. He is also a fabulous stable influence on our nephew and has instilled really good values into his life so he is definitely a number 1 guy.

If you want to snaffle the sentiment for yourself I have attached the files below. You are more than welcome to take them if they are of use to you. I would appreciate it if you leave me some love and link back to me with any creations you make. They are in both JPG and PNG format. Just double click on the image to enlarge and save to your computer.
