Zooming Along!

This wonderful stamp is 'Zooming Along' by Lili of The Valley and it seemed perfect for this week's LOTV 'Fun and Games' Challenge and I was also pleased to see some boys/mens challenges this week as I have had quite a few male cards to make recently!

I found a few more papers left over from the Serif 'Spring in Your Step' Collection which was a freebie with Scrapbook Magazine. I made the sentiment on computer and added some 'manly' embellishments with the brads and bow. Quite a simple card but great image for male card!

Colouring: Promarkers
Bear: Vanilla and Tan
Helmet: Tan and Cinnamon
Scarf: Honeycomb and Pear Green
Goggles: Cool Grey 2 and 4 plus Glossy Accents
Car: Ruby
Car Metalwork: Cool Grey 1, 2, 4 and 5 with Stardust Stickle

The image is coloured almost identically to the one on my 'Born To Be Wild' card that I did few weeks ago but I think it looks completely different with these papers. James Bear certainly looks like he is having fun anyway !!!! LOL   

Hope you are all keeping warm! It's been so cold last few days. I actually put my gloves on whilst shopping the other day because it was freezing!! And is it just me or do the nights seem to be drawing in!!! 

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:-

Sweet Stampin - 'It's One for the Boys' (ends 22nd July 2011) 
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 89 - 'All About the Boys' (ends 22nd July 2011) 
Sentimental Sunday - Challenge 64 - 'For the Men in Your Life' (ends 23rd July 2011) 
Lili of the Valley - Challenge 106 - 'Fun and Games' (ends 27th July 2011)

Take care!
Love and Hugs Sue xx

Sue your colouring is magnificent! Love all the light and shade on the car. You have rocked this male theme that most crafters struggle with!
I love LOTV images and was really pleased I got around to playing last week!!

It's been wet here but not cold but then again that could just be me - I seem to be 10 degrees warmer than everyone else lately!!

Take care, Hugs Laurie x

Fantastic card, Sue! I love the image, your papers and layout are perfect and I love your male brads!
Thank you for all the lovely comments you have left me too:-)! It is still very cold in France, and although I do not put on my gloves, I had to put on a scarf the other day! I hope it is nicer soon:-)! Hugs Delphine xx
