Artful Times challenge --Men

This challenge came just at the right time as it's my son in laws birthday, and I had a card to make. If it hadn't been for the challenge, I think it would have been a bought one this year.
I inked the background with distress inks and stamped a road map on it. I then made the main piece by again inkng with distress inks and cutting the vintage car out fron an old OS map. I couldn't resist putting an old , really old man in the drivers seat, with some children from magazines in the other windows. he now has the card, and I did get into trouble about the old man. Well he is 43 today.

Fabulous man card Wendy, they aren't the easiest are they? I think it's a bit scary when you children reach their 40s, both mine are mid 40s now and the eldest is going to be a grandma later this year. Even more scary!! Jean x

Love your card and your humour Wendy. Men can be SO sensitive about their age! (not like us women!!) Bet he was secretly thrilled with it. Hugs, Buttons x

Love this idea very much! The memories of 'are we there yet?' came flooding back both from my childhood and more recently when my daughter was small. Men and their age? Not sure why they get so het up but they do!! Grow old disgracefully I say!!! (in the nicest possible way of course. . . . . ).

Love this and the saying "are we there yet" is one that we all have heard so often from kiddies. Great fun card this - glad you got inspired to join in and use the result.
Thanks for sharing with us at Artful Times - Hugs, Neet xx
