For the Boys

Good morning I hope you are enjoying your weekend and have something nice planned today.  I am off driving down to London later in the morning to spend two days with my gorgeous boys!

Over at Hobbycutz challenge we have a new challenge starting today.  The theme this week is For The Boys and the fabulous Paper Shelter are our sponsors.  They have a huge selection of images to choose from and each digital image comes with a coloured image, one for you to colour and a paper background to print off.  Here is my card:




I decided to use the colour version of this cutie called My Racing Car and available here.  My papers are by Nitwits.  I cut and matted the image using Spellbinders, the border was made using Spellbinders Edgeabilities and the banner was made using Lil' Inker matted onto Dienamics. I painted my laser cut gear with some Acrylic Paint to match the card,  Kobie has some fabulous laser cuts available here at her store.

Please go over to the Hobbycutz Challenge for some more inspiration and details of the fabulous prize from The Paper Shelter.

Sadly, this will be my last project for Hobbycutz as I have decided to step down from the DT.  I would like to thank Kobie for having me on her team and for her kindness and generosity.

Thank you so much for looking and your lovely comments you have been leaving.  It means a lot and is always so lovely to read them.  Take care xx
