Andy's 40th

Oh my poor neglected blog! That's what happens when you have a lovely long break in Morocco then come back to a ton of work! The crafting takes a back seat.

Never mind - I'm back playing with paper now!

I had a request for a strange card - for a lorry driver who likes boxing. Hmmm - how to combine those two things...

So I found an outline of a truck online to use as a digi stamp I coloured and fussy cut the image and created a background scene using subtly patterned green and light blue papers. To incorporate the boxing element, I included some dangly boxing gloves in the truck window (do these things have a name - I remember people had fluffy dice in the 70s!)

Finally I added a number plate with the recipient's name and '40' on it and some clouds in the sky.

To my uber-critical eye this card looks a bit amateurish but the person who ordered it was delighted!

I'm playing along with the challenges at:
