A Disappointment!

Hello Everyone - I hope you're well and having a good week.

In case you saw my last post (below), my friend loved the jewellery I made her - she was wearing the earrings I made for her the next day I went into work, and they really suit her! I was chuffed to bits LOL!

Anyway, my nephew will be 4 tomorrow and I've made him a card. But, I'm really disappointed with the way it turned out - I don't know what's not quite right about it - I'm considering adding a Happy Birthday sentiment at the top but haven't got much time as I've made this last minute again! I'm actually going out this evening to a charity make-up evening - I honestly can't remember the last time I had a night out without my hubby (even those are very rare occasions!). And you know how it is? - you say yes to something and then wish you hadn't - well that's how I'm feeling right now - can't decide what to wear, blah blah! Stop, that's enough! On to my card:

The image is a Wags n Whiskers digi called Speed Racer which I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts. I've coloured it with Promarkers, with the same kind of colours as Lightning McQueen from the Disney films Cars - my nephew is mad on those characters. The papers are some I've had for ages. I've also had the buttons for ages - they were purple and blue, and I've coloured them with a black Sharpie pen. I added some gloss to the little windscreen and the headlights.

I've followed the sketch at Passion for Promarkers, and I'm also going to enter the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin Challenge
Cute Card Thursday
Totally Gorjuss
which are all for boys/men.

Well, that's it - I need to finish the ironing, then get the children some tea, before making an effort to get ready!

See you soon.

Love, Andrea xx

I always agree to go to things then wish I hadn't, but then I always enjoy it! Hope you had a good time. xx

Your card is so cute... you are being a bit hard on yourself there. You make AWESOME cards, you know!

See that charity make up evening turned out to be good so it was worth it, right?
