A is rather fond of Ferraris and this is the front end of a Ferrari F4 (apparently). I normally wouldn't know what a Ferrari looked like, never mind what particular model it might be, but I thought I'd better be able to tell him exactly what it was! I found a picture of the car on the web and used the same technique as I used for the pirate to make it into something I could use. I then coloured it up as best I could (this is where Copics would have been such a boon) and stuck it to some chipboard to give it a little substance. I tried all sorts of layouts but this was the only one that seemed to work properly, although it is a bit empty, I feel. The addition of the three red brads in the top right corner helps a little with this. Then I tracked down the Ferrari font (Ferro Rosso - dafont.com) and used it for the sentiment. I'm actually quite pleased with the finished article and I know that A will appreciate the thought and effort that has gone into it. So one man down, and several more to go throughout the year, unfortunately. Maybe I should petition Mo Manning to draw more men as that would help immensely.
Right, I'm going to put my feet up now - I'm not cooking tonight so I get to have a rest without feeling guilty.
