VW Kombi Van

Hello, back to normal today, went off to craft this morning, picking up a friend along the way. Shirley treated us to three lovely cards to make. I came home to find OH in the driveway with a scooter that he has just bought that needs work on it. He said it was for me. It has come from an insurance write off auction so can't be registered without a lot of mucking about, inspections etc. If I can only ride off road, I don't see the point of having it, but with all the boys I am sure they will get some joy out of it when they go up the farm.
Still getting over the wedding, LOL, had another sleep during the day and this time no headache when I woke up.
I watched some tv tonight and then sat down to make a card. I got some new stamps in the mail today that I bought from e-bay a couple of weeks ago.
Here is how I made the card.
Basecard is SU Garden Green cardstock and then a layer of stripey DP from My Mind's Eye. I used the Cuttlebug to cut a circle with another DP from My Mind's Eye and also a backing circle with Garden Green. Another smaller Garden Green Circle and then a white one on top. I stamped the image from Kanban stamps called Retro Cars in Basic Black ink onto the white circle and coloured with Copic Markers. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and I used punches to cut it out.
I decorated the inside again using the same theme as the front. I added a stamped image of an alarm clock from Stamp-It. I fussy cut it and popped it up with foam dots on one side. The sentiment is from another Kanban set.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Make It Monday - #80 Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays - PTT#59-Monochromatic
Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #47 - Use Green
Sentimental Sundays - Challenge #93- Go Green or RECYCLE!

It was great to "see" you, enjoy the rest of your day,
Take Care,
