Big Picture Challenge

Hello Bloggers,

Big Picture Classes are running a Happy Mail colour challenge this month:

I love the idea of Happy Mail. It's so much nicer to receive a card in the post, rather than an impersonal email or Facebook message written to a hundred other people. I have heaps of letters/cards from over 20 years ago and I can't help thinking that my children won't have the joy of looking back on a written card as they'll be spending the next 20 years tweeting, texting and emailing.

Anyway, I went for a masculine card for this one:

I find cards for teenagers incredibly difficult to do and I'm not entirely happy with it. It's one of those cards that looks better in real life - I've covered the car with Dimensional Magic to make it shiny but of course that doesn't show up in the photo. The car stamps and patterned paper are all Kaisercraft and I've just added a chipboard cog and some paper string from Green Tara.

Thanks for stopping by,

Claire x

  1. Claire, so lovely to see you join in on the fun. Your masculine card is just wonderful and I love the dimensional magic on the car. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
