Lucky Pants

Morning all, happy Bank Holiday Weekend to all my lovely UK Followers - three days, whooooooo!  And this is traditionally the weekend for the F1 Monaco grand prix, bear with me, there is a link between probably the most famous motor race in the world and today's card.

A long time ago, I remember seeing an interview with David Coulthard when he was just starting out on his career as a racing driver and someone embarrassed him intensely by asking him about the day he'd had an accident and had to be cut out of his race suit, only to display the "lucky pants" he was wearing.  Unfortunately, they weren't so lucky that day as not only had he crashed heavily, but those lucky pants were very old and, erm, holey, in places where pants don't need to have holes.

So when I saw this fabulous image, that lucky pants story came to mind - and it just so happened that I needed to make a good luck card for a gentleman who is starting a new job soon.  So here it is:

Isn't he just brilliant?!  This is CC Designs/A Random Fan (Sherry T Designs) Underwear Hero (rubber stamp version)
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
The alphabet stamps are an old set of wooden Hero Arts 
Memory Box Lucky Charms clover leaf dies
Forever Friends Best of British papers

When this posts I shall be on my way for a tail trim and retouch on the colour - this old red squirrel is definitely heading towards the grey these days.  Then it will be back home for a crafty play before the Monaco qualifying.  
Come on Jenson - we need a good weekend mate

Hugs to all, whatever you are up to
Squirrel xx
