Driving in my car...

I hope you are all enjoying that sunshine you have, no sign of it here. I think it has been raining constantly now for 40 hours!
I had a card request for a man who loves vintage car rallies, car racing, grand prix etc so I used these papers and car decoupage set from Crafts u Print and added a little Edwin to finish it off. The background circle has been embossing using the circle folder.
The ribbon is sentiment birthday ribbon from CRAFTY RIBBONS which I have stapled to the card.
I finished with faux stitching in white.

I would like to enter this card into

Brilliant card Pinky love the racing track and Edwin!
You asked how my DH managed with his Gallstone well he only has one which was picked up at a scan for something else a while ago (although I had already told him he had one lol!). It doesn't really bother him unless he sneaks out for a full English at the local cafe!! We follow a very low fat diet at home which I am sure you do too. Good luck with getting yours sorted although it sounds like you may need surgery - have you had an ERCP? xx
