Auto Hog

Hi,

Well i know i said i didn't think i would have time to make a card during the Easter hols - i then remembered i had no card for Alan, (from Harrison), as it's his birthday on Friday, so while the boys were doing a Rugby Festival yesterday (Harrison's team came 2nd), i made one.


I'm so proud of myself, as today i have used all scraps to make this card, the image is : Penny Black - 'Auto Hog / 4081K / 2010' - the image normally comes with a load of groceries flying out the back, but i thought it would make a better Man's card without them, the cloud paper is : My Mind's Eye - 'Lime Twist / Fly A Kite', grass is : Memory Box - 'Grassland Border', the clouds are : Whimsy Stamps - 'Cloud Die Set', the 'Happy Birthday sentiment is : Papermania - 'Clare Curd Signature Range', Dad is : Pink Gem Designs and the twine is from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Stamping Sensations - where the March Challenge is 'One For The Guys' - my 2nd entry

Cardz For Guys - where Challenge No; 63 is 'Transport'

Creative Inspirations  - where Challenge No: 306 is 'Feathered Friends Or Animals'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'A Cut Above'

Pixie's Snippet Playground - where they are up to Challenge No: 170 - to use your snippets - the cloud paper was half a page, the black and green card was in my scraps / snippets box

Allsorts - where Challenge No; 304 is 'Feature A Creature'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would kindly like to leave, would be most grateful, Luv Sam x

Hi Sam - a uge welcome to the Snippets Playground. I hope you have fun with us and soon learn that it's usually a bit manic - the term playground does get taken very literally at times!

I love your card, such a lovely shape and am a huge fan of Penny Black too. Especially the hedgies :) Our little resident hedgie is out and about in the garden and feeding after a short hibernation - but he doesn't own a smart red car :)

Do come back to play - and as always I introduce our new playmates so watch out next Sunday!

Following you now BTW!

Hugs
