Boys & their toys!

Hello,  Here is a fab image I have recently acquired from my friend Claire and if you use the link you will be able to see her latest images, they are equally fab and include a super toadstool cottage, a beautiful seahorse and a choice of super trees.
Ive made this card for one of my brothers and probably like most chaps, they enjoy the formula 1 racing!  I chose a really bright red and black colour theme and not knowing what to do with the racing track, I just pixellated it.  I used a piece of card from a qvc kit I got a long time ago and finished it off with 3 small brads in co ordinating colours.
Like most crafters I find male cards harder so I am really pleased with this fab image and will use it many times.
It is still bright here in Southampton but not quite as sunny as yesterday although I'm not complaining at all!  Wont it be lovely if Spring is slowly arriving!
