Tuesday Taggers - Man's World

Hiya folks!

Back to the normal summer weather here, wet , windy and grey. Kids are back at school after their 'long weekend' - in service days, would you believe it. Kind of counts as a half term really, as we don't get a whole week for that up here, wierd huh?? Trouble is, whilst I celebrate the kids being at school, I still have the wee one here at home sporting a nasty croupy cough. Don't know where that came from, she keeps getting them. . . miserable for her.

So, my card for today then, is my DT offering for Tuesday Taggers. Our theme this week is 'A Man's World'. We want all things manly! I chose to go with one of my own images again, a Vintage Chevy, available in my shop, Delicious Doodles. I have coloured with the usual watercolour pencils before scanning into the compy and printing out on glossy paper and layering up with foam pads.

My backing is an old sheet of vintage car images that I got years ago from an online craft shop. The square brads are from a seller on ebay. I am also entering this into the challenge at DU2DS, whose theme is also 'One for the boys'.

Nice and simple today. Can't believe how long it took me to make up though. It has been sitting on my desk since last Wednesday waiting for me to put together, but with the kids being off and needing entertainment, and having taught my youngest how to ride her bike without stabilisers I haven't had the time!! Really must knuckle down to some serious business - you should see my 'to do' list!!

Teri, I LOVE this car! When I was very little, my uncle had a car like this...I remember him taking my Aunt and me to the drive-in in it. It was almost this color. Ah the memories....
I think this is an awesome masculine card, love the dimension and he backing papers too!
