A Card for Two Challenges - Mo's and Cute Card Thursday

Good Afternoon Girls, sorry Im late posting my card today, but Ive been rather busy this morning and didnt get around to making the card till after we had our lunch. By the way its also pouring of rain in Gloucestershire so Ive no doubt the garden will be the best thing to benefit from it. It seems such a shame that the lovely weather we have been getting used to seems to have gone. Oh well such is Life.
I created my card for two challenges this week, Mo's "Masculine" and Cute Card Thursdays "Anything Homemade". Ive used this lovely little image of a little lad in his first car by Mo titled "Zoom" and coloured it with my copic pens afterwards I used one of my Nestabilitie dies to cut him out. The sentiment is one of Hero Arts one and I thought it was quite appropriate for this image.
The three papers Ive used on this card are from the Beep Beep Collection from Nitwit Downloads, oh while I think of it, theyve got a good sale over the May bank holiday if you are interested in picking up a good bargain. The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with the first layer of blue card with my first patterned paper, the centre two, which arnt straight deliberately are firstly a blue and white check paper with a second red and white check paper positioned on top, for this one Ive used the family punch around all four edges.
The mounted image was stuck in the centre of my card and my sentiment to the bottom on the right hand side.
To finish of Ive created two windmills, and by gum they were tricky to create because they were of a small size, but I found the tutorial on the internet and it was to say the least extremely useful. Hope you like it.

Fabulous card Shirley, such a cute image and your papers and embellies are perfect.
Sorry for my lack of visits the last few days, I'm having trouble with my shoulder and typing makes the pins and needles down my arm worse, it's my own fault for over doing it a bit what with the decorating and not resting it, I will probably never learn though lol
love and hugs Mandy xx

wow Shirley what a stunning card! Really love the pin wheels on it :) About my recipe cards - I nearly always use my fave recipes on them. every now and then I find a recipe on the net that I would like to try so I'll make a card of the recipe. I haven't tried the furniture polish recipe yet but I thought it sounded great, hopefully I'll get to try it out this weekend. Thanks for always stopping by my blog :)
