Mini Mania

What lousy weather! Can you believe this in July, I am sat in a jumper with the lights on :-( Seems like the perfect day for some crafting but my house is full of lads so probably not much chance of any peace lol.

This week was my youngest sons' birthday (19) and also mine (46!) so we had a really busy but fun week. He is into Mini's and has restored and built his own as a first car. It really is lovely. He has totally rebuilt the engine himself , done all the welding and a total respray. I am very proud of him.
So when I recently bought the John Byers Classic car stamps I was over the moon with the Mini one. I decided it had to be a slider card and it was great fun to make.

I am pleased to report that he was dead chuffed with it :-)

I am going to enter it into the following challenges:

Stampin Sisters in Christ #98 - A card with something that moves on it (Ends Sunday 24th)

Send a smile 4 Kids - A card for a teenage boy (Ends 5th August)

Sweet stampin - One for the boys (ends 23rd July)

Simon says Stamp - Anything goes (ends 20th July)
