Catch Me If You Can!

Happy Sunday everyone!  Did you see today's Belgian Grand Prix?  Wow!  What a race that was, talk about exciting! 

I'm sure I may have told you this story before but years ago I had the privilege to drive a little bit of the circuit (in a road car I hasten to add) from the start/finish straight, through the infamous Eau Rouge and up to Le Combes.  Couldn't go any further round because of deep snow though, but just to be able to say "Yeah, I've driven Eau Rouge" is a wonderful thing - and it has stopped many a male conversation dead in it's tracks, lol.

Anyway, thinking of F1 has lead me to my creation today for this week's LESS IS MORE challenge - honestly, you need to start worrying about the way my brain works sometimes ......

The challenge for this week is to combine three past challenges so I have chosen these:
  • Week 6 - OLC Off The Edge (several drivers went off the edge today)
  • Week 7 - Masculine (lots of very fit young drivers - woah, down girl)
  • Week 9 - A Touch Of Red (what else but Ferrari)
So here is my card:


And the ingredients are:
Stamped Image:  Penny Black "Chase Me"
Colouring Medium: Distress Inks
Sentiment: Hero Arts from Birthday Messages clear set
Stamping Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Lady Bug

Thanks for popping over to see me, it is so nice to have friends round.  Hope to be able to visit you very soon.

Hugs, Sxx
