Go Karting and a Cool Cat Card

Yes, this is me yesterday flying around the home straight bend. lol. Well I thought I was flying until I hopped out of the car and was informed that I was 1 sec slower than the 7-8yo boy that had been racing previously. It was such a fun day and I hope we do again real soon. We were up at Mareeba Mako Trac.

Here is a card I created for my friends hubby whose birthday is a little later this month. I wanted to use the Papertake Weekly sketch as I was seeing some lovely cards created with it. Also I wanted a card for my weekly Inspiration Challenge over at Craftmad. This weeks theme is Blue and Green. Just remembering that old saying of 'Blue and Green should never be seen except with a colour in between'.

I have used paper and card that I won last year, sorry I can't remember the name of the pack. I have used this wonderful free image from Talk to the Ham blog. This cat is so much fun to colour. I used my watercolour pencils and aqua pen. Finished the card with a Letraset Birthday rub-on on white card that I had embossed with my Swiss Dots folder and added my own embossed line.

Challenges I would like to enter this card into:-


  1. Fantastic card,
    Dont worry about being slow, I was in a banger race once thinking I was going well, and when the race finished my hubby said that if I was any slower he could have done a oil painting of me,

  2. Doesnt it feel good to get out with the 'young ' ones lol we can still keep up anyday:)

  3. That looks so fun! Way to go Merry!!!

    To answer your question a Whopper is a malted milk ball. We also have Whopper burgers but I used the candy of course! :P
