Enjoy The Ride

Goodness - it's a month since I have shown anything - mainly due to my laptop playing silly whatsits with me (Daisy chewing through my charger TWICE and the battery giving up the ghost completely) but I am now sitting with an old model from work and back in business! Bliss!

The challenge at A Passion for Papertrey this fortnight is long and tall so I broke open my new bits and bobs that haven't seen ink yet - A Little Argyle and Enjoy the Ride - stamps and die.

I wanted to make a card for my husband's oldest friend - they have both hit 50 this year and have known eachother since they were in nursery school. This is what I came up with....

and this is how I changed it after Paul made a few suggestions! He thinks the car is a definate Herbie and so he added the 50 instead of 53 and suggested the car went at a jaunty angle, oh - and don't forget the indicator lights!

All supplies are by Papertrey and the card is a DL size.

What a fab guy card, Chris!!! I love your DH's suggestions - the car definitely looks great with the '50' on and I loved the Herbie films when I was a kid!
Thanks so much for joining in our challenge on A Passion for Papertrey!
P.S Totally gutted you can't come to our make and take! Sure you can't sneak out from the wedding? Sheffield is only an hour away LOL!

Love your card! Too funny about your husband adding his touches to it. That makes it that much more special for his friend.

Great card Chris, I love the colours and the car die and stamp looks great. Glad you're back in blogland.
