Speedy Gruffie !! :-)

I started this card thinking of it as a 'You're Not Over the Hill' card ,,I had someone in mind for that !! and I might change the sentiment and make it into that ,,,, will see !! :-) For now it is a Speedy Recovery card ;-)

I made this following Sem's fab sketch on the Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge
I did move the sentiment over a bit as my circle was either too big ,,, or my card too small ,,, in any case ,, it wouldn't fit at the bottom ,,,, hope this is OK x x :-)

I used my lovely Gruffie stamp from Simon Says Stamp this one is called Red Roller Racing :-) I coloured the image with copics and added a little copics spica pen on his nails ,, to sharpen them ! and on the 'Go Faster' writing :-) I inked all the edges of all the papers with antique linen distress ink. The papers and gems are Papermania :-) I also used a Tim Holtz pewter sprocket gear and mini brad. The text was printed on the comp ,,,

I am also entering this into the Colour Create Challenge whose theme is Red, Black and off white with the optional extra of silver or pewter brads ,,, I ticked all the boxes :-)

the Quixotic Challenge ,,, One for the Boys ,,, this is either a Get Well Soon card ,,, or a Birthday card for a 'boy' :-)

thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)
