ENJOY THE JOURNEY......

Morning all.....hope it's better where you are,it's absolutely persisting it down here,oh well we haven't had much rain at all and the gardens need it...and mine is looking much greener already...i'm so glad i cut the lawn Monday and tidied it up :0).....that's my other love!
On to my card...i've used this weeks sketch at SKETCH SATURDAY....thank you Jo,once again a fabby sketch to work with.
I'm also entering CARDS FOR MEN this week the theme is "Off On An Adventure".
This card came about because i wanted to try something out...i've had some of Crafters Companion "Spray & shine" for some time and decided to have a play...so the cars had a spray job ...lol,IRL very glossy...once again pants at photography :0(.
The car image is from one of Pollycraft's mini set's "On The Road",the sentiment is from the same set.
I've used Promarkers to colour the car,before cutting it out,spraying it and then raised it off the embossed panel (cuttlebug Herringbone folder and Black Magic "Spell Caster" coredinations card).I've added wheels made with buttons and metal brads.
I've used a page out of an old road atlas....in the age of the Sat Nav's this maybe it's only use :0).
The little Bon Voyage tag came in a kit from QVC many moon's ago,the cord was surplus to requirements off a recently purchased window blind and lastly the wheels are off one of my son's old car's from up the loft...
Well that's about it for now....i've got a busy day ahead today...enjoy yours whatever you're all up to!
Take care

fabulous card San! and love the ingenious use of the car wheels - I shan't be throwing the grandson's broken cars in the bin any more then!
which 3 sets of Kanban stamps did you get and how are you getting on with them? If you got different ones to me I'd be happy to swap a few images.
hugs, annie x

What a great card San, perfect for the difficult male cards :D! I love the shiny car and to hear about the spray you used, it's always good to know if things work well before you get them. A great idea to use the old map page as the background it looks superb. Well done on sorting the garden before the rain, not the case here but the weeds are looking greener :D. Chris xx

Really great card, Sandra. Again, your use of the wheels, map and cord is ingenious!! (I was gonna ask if your hubby knew you'd nicked his map and your son, you'd nicked the wheels off his car before I read your post - lol!) Where are you based? It was pouring down here yesterday too (SE London). Marie x
