It's all about MiMi

Well I have been quite busy, craft wise today as my son wanted to give cards and presents to his teacher, plus the three teaching assistants! Still I decided to treat this asa challenge and come up with four individual cards which I finished putting together today.
Unfortunately though, the weather has been so darn dull (not to mention rainy!) today, that I just didn't get enough good light to photograph them. Here's hoping for a bit more sunshine tomorrow so that I can put my very amateurish photographic skills to good use!

So for today I am showing a card which I havemade for my niece, who has just passed her driving test. I have used one of my old favourites - a Mimi stamp, which I think is just perfect for the occassion. It didn't have L Plates on the stamp though, so I had to make a couple myself. They are not quite in scale to the rest of the image, but I am sure you get the gist......

I have coloured the image using my Spectrum Noirs and have matched the colours in with the papers which were a freebie from a magazine!
There are a few nice challenges out there this week, so I am going to enter this card in to the following:

J&C Creations - Anything Goes
Little Claire - Summer (beacuse it's an open top car and we only get to do that in the UK on the sunniest of days!!
One Stop Craft - Travel
Wishcraft Cards - Waste not Wednesday

So that's me done for today.

See you tomorrow - hopefully with some thank you teacher cards.
