Bob's Birthday

Today, I have to make a Birthday card for my friends husband who used to own a Morris Miner garage, and every year I make his card using the pick up in the Loads Of Love set.

With this in mind I looked around the challenge blogs for inspiration and came up with these.

Clean and Simple have this sketch ,

and CAS-ual Fridays  are looking for a song inspired project.

and ( I'm sorry, but it fits AGAIN ) the Addicted to Stamps challenge to Make Your Mark and use markers.

Here is my card

The song I chose is one of my favourites by Snow Patrol called "Chasing Cars" and has the lyrics.......

"Let's waste time, chasing cars, around our heads...."  and these aptly fit my pick up car.

The vehicle, presents, and bird cage were all stamped in black onto white card, and then I used my SU Write Markers to colour them blending the ink with an Aqua Painter. They were cut out and placed on 3D pads to give them some dimension. The brown road was done in the same way, and the sentiment was stamped in black.

I placed the bird cage on top of the presents, as Bob is a Twitcher and loves his garden birds! so this card is tailored personally for him, I hope he likes it.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope to be back soon

  3. I LOVE this set but what a great idea to use other items to load up the back! Great card and I'm glad you joined us! Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM! xx

  4. What a fun interpretation of the sketch Bev. I love the way you've got everything piled up with the bird cage precariously balanced on the top! Vicky x

  5. Oh what a great job you did on this card - so very creative. I love the way all those things are stacked up inside the pickup. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More!
