As some of you will have read in my previous posts we got our son a steering wheel and a racing game for christmas as he wants to learn to drive and thought this would be an interesting taster. He has now realised that he can't control the boy racer cars of the Bugatti verons etc hope I've spelt that right, but on the slower cars isn't doing too bad.
Over the holidays we had great fun as having family around both sets of grandparents they have all had a go at 'driving'. Now my Dad is so not into technology and up until a couple of years ago had been nowhere near a computer and now Mum says if he can't get on the Internet he's like a bear with a sore head. He often watches our son play on his games but over the holidays we actually got him on the driving game driving a powerful jaguar. He was so impressed mum says he hasn't stopped talking about it and asked if they could come over again at the weekend so they can play again. Now not sure if it was just being impressed or the fact that he wanted to do better as he wrote the jag off several times over on his time around the track, but we all laughed a great deal.
His birthday is coming up at the beginning of February and I thought this stamp from LOTV would make him the perfect card, just got to get some more Granddad peel-offs. I never thought I would be making a gaming card for my Dad and I bet my step brothers wouldn't believe he was playing either. The image is coloured with promarkers, on recycled card from a bought christmas card I received, the black card has been embossed using a fiskars board and all the other bits are from my stash.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
