Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 60 Letters & Numbers

Ok, I've been inspired by all the lovely comments people have left me and have decided to add some more cards straight away! There's no stopping me now!

Friends ask me to create bespoke cards for Birthdays and Wedding Anniversaries, and these often involve numbers. This fits in nicely with the first ever blog challenge that I've decided to do. I found out about while surfing through some fab blogs, and this weeks challenge is Challenge 60 - Letters and Numbers - a perfect chance to show off my creations!

This card was created for a friend's parent's wedding anniversary! He loves cooking, she loves gardening, they are both musician's and in the background of the card is one of their favourite pieces of music. I really enjoyed creating this card as it is really one of a kind!

I also like doing number Birthday cards, I like this pretty pink card for a 40th Birthday.
As always, hope you like the cards - let me know your thoughts!

Been Drifting!

Drifting - sliding a car around a track sideways. This is Joe's passion - he lives and dies for drifting and I've been a passenger in his car several times now. It's fast, its noisy and I get covered in rubber....but I love it!

So, Joe and I have been together for nearly two years and he's finally agreed to let me know a go in his drift car (this is big - his car is his baby, he probably loves it more than me!!). I was supposed to go last month for my Birthday, but I had problems with a trapped nerve in my neck so gave that one a miss.

This morning we got up nice and early, headed up to Santa Pod all excited.....Joe went out on the big track a couple of times and then he said the words I'd been waiting for....."So, do you want a go now?". Then the engine started making a banging noise...his bottom end had "gone" so no drifting for me today!

Then a friend called Matt said I could have a go in his car......excellent, I started getting excited again....Matt went out for another skid and then got told his car was too noisy!! He could only carry on if he made it quieter!! For goodness sake - its a drift car, they are supposed to be noisy!!

If you ask me there is some kind of conspiracy going on here!! Oh well, back to crafting!
