Parking thanks...

This is what I love about making your own cards- Where would you find a card that says 'Thank You For The Parking Space'?!!
My husband asked me to make this for him to give to somebody who has been letting him park each week while he goes to a meeting in town so he does not have to walk far to get to it- he has a back injury which makes this hard for him.
The layout is from Sketch and Stash and my new stash used on this card is the digi stamp from Pollycraft. I made the little sentiment circles on my computer before cutting them out with nesties and adding a star brad to the middle of each.
Kaboodle Doodles have 'add a little metal' so I hope my brads count even though they are painted ones! Stamps R Us have 'all male theme'- I hope this is blokey enough, my husband does not do girly!

What a sweet card Alison. Your colour combination is perfect and your image is so cute. I love the circle sentiments and the metal stars which make a perfect combination for our metal challenge at Kaboodledoodles.
