Summer driving.

My sis has a soft top car and uses any opportunity to pose along with her partner, my sis does it with Audrey Hepburn style the scarf wrapped glamorously around her hair to stay perfect and her partner just poses. It is my sisters car but if the tops down and they are both in the car he has to drive.

This is another card for Peter to try and keep his spirits up, he is starting to feel rough and says he is sleeping 13 hours plus a day and having trouble concentrating on much at all, and this is only the start of the treatment!Hubby is going to see him on Thursday and take the cards his colleagues have signed along with some audio book CD's he has downloaded and a selection of the latest DVD's we have bought, so he has some thing to distract him.

I should explain Peter bought himself a new mini a couple of years ago as he commutes about 40 miles daily to work so a small car was more economical though I don't think it's a soft top and not sure of the colour as hubby couldn't remember so I thought I'd make mine a nice bright and cheerful red. The image is from LOTV and I coloured with promarkers and sakura glaze pens for the silver bits. I added diamond glaze to the body work to get that new freshly waxed shine, have to sat I love the fun fluffy dice and though I'm sure it's geared towards being a male orientated image I think it would be fab for a girl with pink dice and popping a ribbon in teddy's hair.

The papers are all magazine freebies but I love the bright fresh colours so reminds me of driving to the coast on a sunny summers day and hopefully it will invoke some happy sunny memories for Peter too . The button are from a scrapbook set at stitchy stamps which I simply printed and triple embossed with clear powder.the sentiment is from a whimsy set by raindrop echos.

If anyone would like to send him a cheerful card I would be very greatful and I'm sure he would really appreciate it too as he has little family support so will be relying heavily on his friends.
