Sweet Stampin #29 - Boys and their Toys!

It's our first week with our brand new Design Team members this week over at Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog, and I must say, these ladies have got straight into it and produced the most gorgeous examples to show you all :)
Please go take a look yourself, their blogs can be found in my right sidebar >>>

Black Leaf Studios gave all of the DT a free download to use in their work this week.
The collection we were given is called Toy Transport, a selection of bright, cheerful images, sure to appeal to young and old alike.

Now, unfortunately, my temperamental printer finally decided to give up on me :(
It's been threatening to die on me for a while now so it didn't come as a huge shock to be honest.
My spare (not so good) printer is in the boot of our car, it was on route to be recycled, but our car also decided to give up on us, well actually it went with a bang! and is now in the garage having major repairs to it :(

My Mom printed this image for me, but I think her printer is in a moody too because the blue colour of the police car came out almost grey and had banded stripes across it.
Not my Mom's fault at all, I'm grateful that she printed the image so I could make my card.
still a pity though, so I coloured over the image with my bashful blue SU marker to give it a bit more colour.

Please don't be put off with my image, because the downloads are really top quality with bright vivacious colours

My mojo has left me this week, my brain is in a tizz with other things, so it's hard to concentrate at the mo.
Although I'm not entirely happy with this card, I am happier than I was when I first completed it.
This card had a different backing paper before I changed it to this 'Not Quite Navy' patterns pack paper.
Like I said though, I'm not entirely happy with it :(
So to see some beautiful, colourful and inspiring examples showing the best of what 'Toy Transport' has to offer, please go visit my fellow DT members blogs, their work is fantastic!
