Two more for the guys!!

GOOOOD morning!! WOW!! woke up to sun today...what a beautiful autumn morning.
The dog is sprawled in the sun in front of the ranchslider...

Theres my 'Harry' he was sprawled and I took a photo.. but he's a boy..........and dont like boys sprawled, so I called his name and he glanced up.

Onto a couple of cards.
 Another 21st card,  for my client this time to give to the same boy, as his mother is her night carer..
She didnt want BIG....most certainly not a Rapper, regardless what he you hear music is his thing, I came up with this standard size card..

Found these headphones on the net, and printed them off,coloured with pencils,and a bit of silver gel pen, papers from Basic grey,and chip board 21.
She was delighted, decorated the inside and added a personnal message from my lady.

The next card is for my son. He loves 'cobra cars'. Mechanic by trade and a God send in the family, as he is always needed. He is so patient, quiet, very intelligent,brilliant mechanic [top mechanic in NZ 2 times now] and [11th place in the world comps in Korea] just a wee plug there for my

There you go...that took forever to pop up..

Another search on the net, and came across this pic, so copied it and coloured with pencils.
Fabulous papers are from a pad, from 'Rosies' studio...all boy papers.
Added the buttons as tyres, by putting small brown button, on top of big black one, looks quite cool, I reckon.

I think thats enough for have some tricky cards coming must use your imagination to view them...Oh! the suspense...

DT card tomorrow, then I should be organised with my imagination card...

See you then, and thankyou to another new follower, great to have you here, hope you enjoy.

Well done to your son sometimes it can be hard to find a good mechanic we've gone through a few but now finally found a good one he's a bit dearer than the others but he is so worth it & does a brilliant job.....they say you get what you pay for.... Do ya think your son would travel to the uk lol.

Hi again. Wow Chrissy, I think this 21 year old is one lucky guy. He is getting a bunch of cards by Chrissy and I couldn't think of anything nicer. They are all fabulous. He is sure to be amazed. I love the card you have made your son. I know what you mean about having a mechanic in the family. My Dad has been my super hero for many years. I have also been right next to him while he has worked on my cars. (Couldn't have let him get hurt for me.) Your Son sounds awesome and I am sure that he is going to love his card. Those buttons look fab. Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa
