This week's challenge at FCCB is Planes, Trains and Automobiles. We are challenging you to create a project with some sort of transportation on it. I actually did not think that I would have a project for this week as we had a rather traumatic start to the school year... but the theme fit my need for a card so to the craft room I went!
On Wednesday evening, my middle guy was at a youth event which included some go karting. When it was my son's turn, he was given some pointers on how to operate the go kart, including the instruction to turn off the ignition if necessary as the brakes didn't always work. (I'm beyond baffled that this activity was even permitted and that none of the adults there realized how reckless it was...) Anyway, long story short, the brakes did not work. My son was unable to turn off the ignition in time and was unable to turn so ended up ramming into a truck. He now has a fractured ankle and some pretty nasty gashes down his leg. No fun at all! I made this card for him. (The character on the card is smiling as my son has remained his happy self through all this. In fact, he is handling things much better than I am!!)
I used the golf cart on Car Decals and George and Basic Shapes to create the go kart, cutting the top part off by hand. The little guy is also from Car Decals and the crutches are from Everyday Paper Dolls. I hand cut the little cast. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags set and the frames around the sentiment were cut using the NEW My Craft Spot Tiny Doilies metal dies and punches. The crooked frame is also from George and Basic Shapes.
