Let's Go Racing!

I'm not a huge race fan.  I like to watch it (or rather, I like to watch the crashes...as long as everyone is ok... and the last 5 minutes) and I have a small team of favorite drivers (go Denny!), but I do NOT make sure every Sunday for the summer months is clear so I can sit in front of the TV for 8 hours to watch the whole thing.  However...my hubby does. He's huge into NASCAR, so when I saw Kenny K's Krafty Girlz challenge today I just knew I had to join in.  I love Kenny's images, and I love to join in their challenges.  My problem is they're due on Saturdays and I'm just not around on the weekends.  Somehow I always end up missing the deadline, or since they're posted on Sunday, miss the challenge altogether.  To make sure I got in this time, I came straight home to get to work!

This week's challenge is Check It Out.  Now, if you've visited Kenny's shop you know he has some sassy little racing hotties. (If you haven't visited...what are you waiting for?!  Go now!  No, wait.  Finish reading my post, THEN go. lol)  After spending almost an hour on the site I finally decided on Racy Roxie. (That's right.  I bought an image today, specifically for this challenge.  I know I'll use it again, though.  We have lots of NASCAR fan buddies.)


I used Copics for her skin and hair, and Glaze pens for her outfit, hat and sunglasses.  (I just want to know....WHERE can I get a pair of shoes like that?!?)  The car was colored using Glaze pens.  The tire tread was tiled and printed on the cardstock to create the background.

That's about it for tonight.  I can't wait for some kind of occasion to give this to my hubby.  He saw it tonight...but I'm sure he'll forget about it in a week or so. =D

wow- what a cool card...you rocked those images & I have to say ...her skin color is perfect...I have a hard time w/that, so when I do stamp & color I stay away from humans-lol!! Everything on this card is so vivid, love'n the flames!!! I have to admit...I used to be a NASCAR girl, go Gordon!! Keep in mind, I went to my first race when I was 21, the guy I was dating was into it. I had a blast at the race, much more of a party then anything else. I then got one of my girlfriends into racing & after me & the boyfriend broke up, her & I would go to races...too much fun!! Gee, thanks for the walk down memory lane, hadn't thought about those fun times in years. I've only gone to 1 race w/my husband, he's not a fan : ( Have a fantastic weekend-woohoo!!! Lynn

Star, this card is fabulous. It's so much fun. I love the tire tread background and how the image appears to be ready to jump right off the card. Fabulous job! And thanks for the love on my blog. You made me smile. And just as an FYI, Yoda say that you keep adding embellies til the card looks right or you can't lift it, whichever comes first. At least, that's what he told me. LOL. Seriously, though, when you make cards like this one, what is there to change? It's already perfect!

Yeah he'll forget! You can give it to him and he wont even remember it. And if he does, then you'll at least know he already liked it! So I am on bed rest and have to drink a ton of water. The problem is I can't fit a ton of water! I take one sip of water or 1 bite of food and I feel full and if I try to force more I get sick. I'm thinking I have a stomach bug because I was fine before Wednesday when all this started. Hopefully it goes away! So far so good though!

She is SO super cute! I'm very jealous of her hooker heels! No really... I'm only 5'5 and that's all I wear. LOL! no NASCAR fans here in HI, but I'll check out the site anyway, cause I'm sure I'll find something that I like! :)
