Not a Mini, but...


Fingers crossed this post goes live as it's supposed to!  Hopefully it will as I should be camping as HB has persuaded me to go with him to a car show.  Actually at this point I may well be being used to haggle with traders over the price of what he wants, as I seem to be able to negotiate a better price than he can, LOL :-D

For today's post I should have coloured up one a Mini image by Gayle - available from Scrabook Sisters here - but I didn't which was silly, so all I have to show you today is a card I made for my BIL and SIL to give to their BIL (are you lost yet... I am!!)  He's into VW's and I had this image from Squidgi Digi already coloured up and SIL spotted it and asked me to make a card for her.    Hope that's OK, after all they are both classic cars :-D

As it's for a man I kept it simple but added his name to the numberplate.  I thought these Dream Street papers worked really well as they kind of look like the sort of thing you used to get on camper interiors around this time :-)

You can't see that well in the picture, but I cut out the bit in the pop out roof and added some acetate behind it, should have made a little pair of curtains now I think about it!!  There is glossy accents on the bumper, number plate and his eyes, and two coats on the lights and indicators.  

The sentiment is from LCI, where a buy one get one half price is still on, don't miss it, or the free international shipping!!

Please can I enter my card into these challenges

Thanks for looking, hopefully there will be another post tomorrow
