My Very Own Valentino Rossi!!!!

Some good news to start of this yukky Monday morning in Stoke....I entered my CES DT card into the Cowgirl Sunday & got picked in their TOP 3 whoohooo!! thanks ladies I will wear my blog badge with pride xx

Oh I have been so looking forward to showing you my DT card for
Craft Your Passion. I asked Lauretta kinda joking at the time, if she could draw me Valentino Rossi, who is without a doubt the best ever motorbike rider ever, ever....9 times World Champion on two different manufacturers...the only class he is yet to win, is the new GP 2, but it looks like he will be starting his own team in this
 class next season! 
plus hes kinda cute lol...shhh don't tell Nige!
Well Lauretta worked her magic & WOW!!! its fantastic!! I love it!!! & it it fits just perfect with this weeks challenge of  'clean & simple'

I thought I'd show you a close up, of him coming out of the card..I also used glossy accents on his visor!
