No challenges - just a strange request



If, like me, you make the odd card for other people, you will probably have had some strange card requests too.  The card I have made today is for a four year old little boy who likes Landrover cars - so that was what I was asked to make. 

Okay, so maybe its not that strange a request, but if its not girly and glittery I often suffer a sudden bout of Crafter's Block and the mojo flies out of the window!!!!

I was a bit stuck at first, but came across some Landrover colouring pages online which fit the bill perfectly.  I've used my favourite "masculine" paper from DCWV - don't know what I'll do when I run out of my spots and stripes!

I've coloured it with pro markers and printed the sentiment on my computer.  I'd love you to leave me a comment and let me know what the strangest card request is that you've made!

Thanks for looking!

Amanda this is fabulous, the little boy will love it.
I'm the same with the crafters block when it comes to the dreaded male cards, I've had to make one today and I so don't enjoy making them

This is fab, perfect I think! I usually struggle with non girly cards and they take me sooooo long to make as I don't know what to put in the gaps where I normally have ribbon and flowers!!!

Ooh this is so unusual, it works beautifully.
I love the colours, and am sure the little one will love it too.
