Shape up!

Sally has chosen the them this time at Ladybug Crafts Ink and she wants to see a square, a circle and a triangle in your design! I was making this card for my nephew who has recently past his driving test and is just made about cars! So I stalked Kerry and got myself this lovely image called FIRST CAR. Perfect for Cormac!
Image - First car from The Teenagers range
Papers - old ones from my stash
Embellishments - printed out some triangles for his name, added the dictionary definition, nestie circle
Medium - he is coloured with promarkers
I would like to enter this into
ABC DT - anything goes
Joanna Sheen - it's a man's world
Love to Create - Birthday
Polka Doodles - big birthdays
Scrapbook Sisters - Dad/men birthday
Digital Tuesday - birthdays

Well I have moved into my new craft room but the whole house is a mess. I am completely congested with all the dust and its a long slog to get the house back in order. We changed our old kitchen into two rooms, a craft room and a snug. My old craft room is becoming my eldest son's bedroom, his bedroom is becoming my middle son's bedroom and his bedroom is now my utility room! Can you keep up. So as you can imagine the whole house is in chaos. Luckily the dump was open yesterday and we got rid of a lot of stuff. I have filled two large bags with craft stuff for my friend who runs a baby minding agency and my hubby has taken a lot for his class in school. But I still have tons and still complain about lack of storage yet I have wall to wall cube storage! I will take a photo soon, when I get it looking a bit tidier lol. We lost our internet as we had to move the computers to the new room and get it all rewired etc. So thankfully I got back on in time to do this post!
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you all had a lovely Easter break.


PS. forgot to mention there is a sale on, read below for info:)

All change in your house then - you'll have to put signs on the doors for a bit so everyone knows where they are supposed to be.
Great card for someone who's just passed their test. My grandson takes his test this week so I may have to be making one myself.Hope so anyway.
