Zooming Along!

Oh I loved making this card, giggled to myself as I put it together, I know it's not your normal Christmas card, but it will mean a lot to my son. He's 17, and just started learning to drive. His birthday was at the end of October, and now Christmas is fast approaching and he hasn't a clue what he wants.

Ting...light bulb moment...I thought of pre-paid driving lessons!

With this in mind I've made this Christmas wallet. Simple design I know, but I think it will make sense to him, as it brings back memories of his second driving lesson with me in the back garden, and the car heading straight for the trees! Sorry Alan, but it was really funny, (not at the time), but when I think about it, I have a chuckle, you see our garden is surrounded by trees, so how he didn't see them ahead will always be one of life's great mysteries!!!

Anyway onto the card, its lovely non-christmas image, but perfect for this Christmas gift is by LOTV. Colouring by Promarkers & paper by Saint Nick.
