Hang On!

Had my son out for another driving lesson this weekend. It's been 2 weeks since his first one as I left it too late to book a car for last week. While we were sorting out the paperwork for this hire I booked us up for the next 4 weekends just in case I forget again!

He's doing really well so far. Now if he makes a mistake he remembers to put the handbrake (parking brake) on first before throwing his hands across his face and giving it "aarrrggghhhh!!!" although, fortunately, the incidents of this are decreasing! He has however now decided that 20 miles an hour is plenty fast enough for him to handle for the moment but it's all a confidence thing & the more we go out the better it will be.

It doesn't happen very often but when I saw the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge for this week I actually knew what I was going to do with it!

I've wanted to use this sentiment for a wee while now and thought it was just the thing to go with this stamp - love the surprised expression on kitty's face!

The cloud background was created using Tim Holtz Distress Ink and stamped with the image from Penny Black "Bubbles". A variety of blue and grey Promarkers were used to colour the cat, balloons and two rectangles cut from the white cardstock. The lighter coloured rectangle was stamped with the sentiment from the Lindsay Mason's "Random Thoughts" set.

I used

White 300gsm - Fabiano

Bubbles - Penny Black
Random Thoughts - Lindsay Mason

Onyx Black -  Versafine
Tuxedo Black - Memento
Faded Jeans - Tim Holtz Distress Ink

  1. LOL! That sentiment is perfect for the image! And your little cloudy sky looks terrific with that little guy. Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
