Floral Fantasies Blog Challenge to mark Sirstampalot's move to new premises & ABC Challenge

I absolutely adore going to Sirstampalot so you can imagine how delighted I was to hear they were moving to a bigger premises,  I haven't been there for a while, even though they are fairly close to where I live, because I found it quite hard to get round in my wheelchair, so you can imagine my delight when I found out there was a challenge by Floral Fantasies to mark Sirstampalot moving to their new premises. The theme is "Moving", now I was going to do the usual thing, ie a removal van etc, but then I needed to make a car card for a friend's brother and he wanted it with a racing theme, so I have decided this is the card I am going to enter into the challenge. Sirstampalot's blog  is well worth visiting too, I would recommend it.
I also have entered this card into the ABC Challenge, their theme is "New", and everything I have used on the card is new, so this fits into their challenge too.
I printed out a car and chequered flag, all I did was cut out the car, colour it in Promarker's Berry Red, which I had only got yesterday morning and then use double sided tape to attach it to acetate, which I mounted into a card I had bought online. 
As the boy was 13, I used a silver peel off and stuck it onto the car door, as a racing car would be.
I hope you like my card, please feel free to leave a comment if you wish.


  1. Excellent card Karen, we think mens cards are so hard but really they are much easier to pic for lol. This is brill and I am sure he will love it and its perfect for our MOVING theme. Thanks for joining the fun and good luck in the draw.

  2. Hi Karen,
    This is a great "moving" card. I always struggle with mens' cards. I made a card for my father in law this morning and used a red sports car too!
    Thank you for joining the Sir Stampalot challenge and good luck in the prize draw.

  3. Hi Karen

    What a great take on the Moving theme and a lovely birthday card.

    You certainly will find the new shop easier to move around, it has lovely wide aisles, so different to the previous one and of course that means even more crafting goodies.

    Thank you so much for joining in our Stampalot challenge and good luck with the draws.
