Bryan's Baby!

I'm so sorry, I'm a day late with my Sheepski design team creation. I had a poorly Nico on Friday so this weekends ended up a day behind lol. He's ok now thankfully, not sure what cause the little man to get a temperature, but when he does all he wants is his Momma! When I got in from work he waddled up to me growling, squeaking & grunting at me until I picked him up. Then he nipped at my neck to make me lie down on the sofa. so he could have snuggles & sleep. That's all good & fine if I have done everything. But having a pet skunk is like nothing else, its like having a demanding 2 year old with teeth lol!! Good jobs we loves the little stinker...

Anyhoos I'm here to share latest Sheepski creation with you, I thought this image would be perfect for my Dads birthday card. He loves his old cars & as his favourite colour for a card if British Racing Green I tried to get it as close to that as possible!

Just love the steampunky feel to this image!

Nothing says vintage like an old car. You have done this very well and has a steampunk feel to it. This car is fantastic. Thank you for joining us at The Male Room.

I think your dad will love it! I think sportscars look wonderful in British Racing Green! And the addition of the steampunk wings and cogs is brilliant. Great work. Thanks so much for playing along with the vintage theme at The Male Room. Deborah. DT
