Another Great Guy Card

Hi Crafters,
I was asked to make a birthday card showing a man on a ride-on mower as this was his dream to own one, so here is my offering...

I had a digital image from Karen's Doodles on my computer and I merged it with a garden picture in 'My Craft Studio', then set about colouring it with my Promarkers. The Happy Birthday is a Stampin' Up stamp which I mounted on top of two banners.

This is a short and sweet post today, I am frantically trying to make lots of cards and gifts for a stall I will be having on 26th September in aid of the Macmillan 'Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning' charity event at a local school. Hopefully I will get done in time.
See you soon,
