Racing Along

Evening Folks
Well what a week it has been.  So busy at work at the moment and am so glad that I now have four days off.  Our town is having a Picnic in the Park event on Monday for the Jubilee.  Keeping fingers and toes crossed that the weather treats us well that day.  Other than that I hope to get some crafty time in and I ought to get out in the garden and do a bit of tidying up too.  My youngest will be home from university tomorrow for the week.  Love having her home but not so sure about the mess she leaves behind her.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings and onto my card share for today.
This is another card that I have done for my future son-in-laws birthday on Tuesday.

As you can see I went with an easel card.  Never sure of the best way to photograph these so hope it looks okay.  I went with a motorbike topper as Mark would love to own a bike.  However, I think he would need to do a lot of grovelling to get my daughter to agree to it lol.  All the papers were in my stash box.  Think they came free with a magazine many moons ago (possibly over a year ago).  Kept the overall design quite clean with not too many embellishments, just lots of matting and layering.
Hope he likes it.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
Crafty Ribbons - Easel cards
Top Tip Tuesday - Dig out the old (papers, at least a year old)
Pile It On - Two or more folds
Love to Create - Add a sentiment
Kaboodle Doodles - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by and hope you all have a great weekend.
Take care.
