One for the Boys!!

Hullo, Hullo,
After doing such a girlie card last, I thought I had best do one for the lads!!!
The challenge over at Cupcake Crafts inspired this card as the task this week is Transport!!!
My Elzybell stamp sprang to mind straight away so I set straight to work paper piecing it and popping the wheels on dimensional pads to give it a bit of depth and finished off with an Elzybell sentiment.
Here is an angled shot so you can see the wheels and L plate lifted, I am sure there is a stamp set out there with the L plate on so I thought I would give it a go myself and am quite pleased with the result.
I will also be entering my card into the following challenges
Lollipop Crafts - all about boy
A spoonful of sugar - anything goes
Now onto some extremely amazing and unbelievable news!!
You may remember back in June my son and his friend had their bikes stolen from school, well after lots of investigating from us and friends of my son and help from the police I am sure you will be pleased to hear that we now have it safe at home, Ok maybe not with the original seat, front wheel or forks (that cost a fortune!!) and stripped of all it's paint, but it is back where it should be and not with the thieving little *?&*** that stole it!!!!
To say I am pleased is an understatement it feels sooooooo good, unfortunately his friends has never been spotted but we will still be looking!!!
Have an enjoyable weekend whatever it may be and thank you for popping by and leaving me lovely comments x
Toodle pop!!


  1. Super card Suzie and good news about the bike.

  2. Hiya Suz,
    Great card. I did something similar with an "L" plate when my son passed his test in April and I managed to get "L" plate confetti too, was great fun when he opened the card and it all fell out (mind you I had to hoover!!)
    Like the large Black scalloped cards, really nice.
    Good new about the bike, shame the little bu***rs that stole it have not been hung up by their "bits"...Debbiexx

  3. Great card hun, love the striking colour combo and the great Elzybells stamps (so sad they're closing down!).

    Good news about the bike too, I hope the little whatsits that took it get what's coming to them eventually!

  4. what great news and well done you for persevering on getting it back must be a great feeling indeedy.
    Great card hun and love your layering and giving it that 3d effect.
    Hugs from me!!!

  5. Love this card Suzie...very masculine colours and one of my all time fav images...great news about the bike...hope the other one turns up soon! Thanks for joining in the fun at Cupcake this week :) Donna x

  6. Hi Suzie,
    Apologies for my absence, I'm trying to catch up with everyone! And thank you for all your lovely comments, you are a sweetie!
    Fab card! I love this image and you've done such a great job with the paper piecing and raising the wheels.
    Great news about your sons bicycle, though it would be nice to have it back in one piece without bits missing or changed.
    Take care
    Love Elaine xx

  7. Fun card! Thanks for playing along in the Lollipop Crafts Challenge! :D

  8. Hi Sue
    your card is fantastic (you clever thing you). I loathe doing male cards (I have to make one today for my grandson in France), luckily I managed to get him a football stamp at Ally Pally yesterday, (so no prizes for guessing what he will be having on his card) lol. Fantastic news about your son's bike, ? did they manage to find out who the thieving ******* was who stole it, and if so I hope they are going to pay for all the missing bits.

  9. Suzie you can sleep over anytime to see those fairies lol!
    Your card is absolutely brilliant!
    Love your L plate such a great idea and looks so effective fabulous idea!
    I am so happy that the bike has been found although sorry about the changed bits to it. My son in law had his stolen outside Boots in EG and then found it again in Ebay! He too is so happy to get it back.
