Tobias with his excavator

Finally it's Friday! Can't tell you how much I have been looking fwd to this weekend. This week has just been crazy at work - meetings, meetings and meetings. Then my neighbour called me Wednesday and asked if it would be possible for me to create a card for her daughter's boyfriend. She needed it Friday - that's today. Of course I said yes. Who needs to sleep when you can be awake and focus on the fun things - cardmaking! ;-)

Well - I did not have a stamp with an excavator, so I had to draw one. Can't say that it was the easiest thing to draw - but of course I have to practise - being a mom to a 2-year old boy who just loves everthing with an engine - you have to draw tractors, cars, motorbikes every day.... Anyway - I actually used Isac's Lego excavator as my model..hihi..... Isac was pleased with what he saw - so I guess I have to as well. Luckily it was also the right colour - yellow, since Tobias has a yellow one himself...

Edwin is of course from Magnolia.

Papers and stars from stash. I coloured everything with my SU markers on aquarelle papers. Had to use some stickles as highlights, but tried to keep the card clean from flowers etc - since Tobias is turning 24 ;-)

Well - looking fwd to hear from you ladies!



PS. Have you seen what Marlene is up to? Her hubby had a secrete trip planned for her to celebrate her 20x2 b'day and he took her to Venice! I can only say - check her website and print it out and show your husbands. Here's the standard from now on...hihi.......... Have fun Marlene!
