Pimp My Mini!

Well this is my first ever attempt at blogging. The idea is that this blog will inspire me to make more cards, rather than just spending money on my crafty stash which as all crafters know is a problem :-) I don't know if anyone will read it but it's here for my amusement.

Anyway as this blog is dedicated to my alleged card making I think I'd better show a card. So here's a thank you card I made last week for a mechanic who has done some work on my mini recently.

He had a bit of a nightmare with one of the supposedly straightforward jobs so that's the reason for the card. As well as the nighmare job, he also fitted me a fab new sporty exhaust so my mini has been pimped! He is a mini addict so took the challenge of the work with suitably good humour which only comes with experience of working on Minis!

Card details:

Cardstock (including the orange corrugated): from Paper Mill Shop
Paper: Basic Grey 'Oh Baby Boy'
Mini: Stamp from Bladerubber (coloured with felt tip and heat embossed)
'Stitching': black fine liner pen and holes punched with a pricking tool (a tip I picked up from reading Jo Kill's blog)
Die cut letters and stars: Quickutz
Screw head brad: from Crafts By Carolyn (check out the forum on there too)

Well that's the end of my first ever blog post.
