Morning all.  I spent yesterday afternoon making a card for this week's  'Cars' challenge over at The Male Room.  I loved colouring the central image and I had my card all done and perfect when I stuck an inky fingerprint right in the middle - Argh!  So I rescued my coloured image and started again.  I had a couple of mishaps with the background so I have several other images that I can now colour for future cards and finally had something that was similar to what I had planned.  Pity it's a bloke card.  I could have stuck a couple of sequins over the splodge for a girly card and it was just in the wrong place to deal with it with any blokey accessories.  Believe me, I tried.  Anyway, here's my card.

Of course, having spent so long on it yesterday, I have today realised that it is a camper van rather than a car but I'm hoping it still counts (pretty please).  In my defence, we have a Mazda Bongo camper van and it is my husband's daily driver.  

I can't remember who's stamp it is.  I think it may be a Docrafts brand.  My husband bought me a couple of sets donkey's years ago and they are far too under used.  So thanks to the Male Room Team for giving me an excuse to dig them out.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Great card! Well saved. Have a great day.

  2. A super card Dawn, a fabulous design - such a good idea to colour just one image, well worth taking the time to get it perfect.

  3. Love the VW camper van - such a great design. I really like the way you've focused attention to the centre image with that being in colour. Super take on the challenge. Thanks so much for playing along with The Male Room. Deborah, DT.

  4. This is certainly the perfect card for a Happy Camper! Great save, love how you coloured just the center image. Thanks so much for playing along at The Male Room Craft Challenge. Good Luck!

  5. I think it counts, my parents had a camper as their only vehicle for years. Love the image, thank you for sharing it with us at TMR.

  6. AH! memories! we were going to buy one of the campervans MANY years ago, so good to see it shown off beautifully in your card. Love the number plate too LOL. Thank you so much for joining us in our Cars challenge at The Male Room this week. Looking forward to see you again next challenge.
