My eldest son has had a hard week this week as his car became poorly on Monday and he took it to the garage who suggested leaving it there. This meant he had to leave the house at 4.30am the next day for a bus to Oxford and then Wiltshire for a University Open Day. The car was worked on, various belts that were worn were changed and the car was returned to him on Thursday night and off he went to college. Only to come home afterwards saying the noise was back again. The mechanic took the car again on Friday and it was found that the air filters needed changing. The car is back again there on Tuesday for some new front tyres but hopefully - not being rude - this is the last time my son's car will see the garage for a while. It was hard for him without a car as he needs to drive to work and be able to get to university twice a week as well so as the mechanic had gone that "extra mile" I thought I'd make him a card for Kevin to give to him.
I have used my Cards for Men CD by Debbi Moore which is perfect. I love this blue car and as he's a mechanic that was the obvious decoupage image to use. I've used a backing paper from the CD and an insert and then scraps from my scraps box. The card has been finished off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment, ribbon, buttons, bow, chipboard embellishments coloured with a metallic Brilliance ink pad and some star brads.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
