Men and their cars!

 Afternoon folks, gosh it's bitter here today, how can you have a couple of beautiful Sunny days and then this! Sleet and a howling gale, that's N.E. Scotland for you. A slow start for me today, dare I say it! I'm still in me jammies, I know, shocking, can't get the body to get going today but not going to lie down any longer, off to stretch my body back into some kind of life. Have a new stamp I'm dying to try out for a special occasion next month so hope everything goes to plan, Have it stored in my head but that doesn't always follow through.
Weather doesn't look promising for the May Day weekend, have my grandson on Saturday and the men folk are at long last going to pull down the back porch. Taken me four years to get hubby organised. Mmnnn, not holding my breath how long the new extension takes. Now, if it was a new farm building, things would be running along just dandy and up yesterday lol! Hope you all have a lovely May day weekend.
Okay, my card, was given these photos to make this birthday card. Thought the Easel shape would show them off  and the fact I could use more papers as didn't want to clutter up the area where the photos where to go. This wee man loves his granda's car so think he'll be real chuffed he's at the helm, gosh, that's a boat, mean wheel on this one. Edited it in Paint shop pro.

Making Memories - Cheeky papers
Memory Box Die
Nestie Die embossed with brick effect folder

And finally, look what the posty brought this morning. A  parcel from Brenda at Stampalot. Was a top three in their birthday bash for April. Brenda said, nothing much but I was thrilled with my prize, just gorgeous. the wee card, hand made roses, ribbons  and yummieeeeee pins! Sorry, no one will be getting these! Going to make a special memory piece just for me. 

 Would like to enter challenges

P.S. by the way I am dressed now lol!
bye for now

Great card Carol. Love that photo. I have a photo of Oliver next to a Lotus Elise that his Daddy bought - my son-in-law is always buying and selling cars! He couldn't wait for Daddy to come home from work to take him out in the car. Oliver loves anything with wheels!! Easel card really shows off the photo.

I'm a bit behind with visiting since my laptop is at the repair shop and I'm using my iPad......with varying success!
