Anything *BUT* a card

 That is the challenge at Dude times currently (hurry, just a couple more days left). WELL I struggled with this challenge...what to make, how to make it?  I had ideas running thru my head but no direction. So I looked here and got way tooooo many ideas. I had to narrow it down and quickly, times a ticking.  Ahhh just what I was looking for! A box! This will hold 4.25x5.5 note cards and envelopes.

 Then I had to find a BDD image I could use, Mike to the rescue.
Poor Mike, he's embarrassed
Mike is just a small time mechanic. He can't figure out what is wrong with your car. Uh oh, he's a little pink in the face, being embarrassed.  But he's such a friendly guy you can't be too mad at him.
As you can tell by his coveralls, he does work hard.  hmmm lady maybe there's really NOTHING wrong with your car! LOL

I had a lot of fun with this challenge, it certainly pushed me out of my comfort zone. Still working on the note cards. Enjoy.

EDIT: The note cards will be two each of Grease Monkey Mike, Rough Night Rodney, Gift Bearer Gary. I thought some lucky lady can use the note cards to thank or say Hi to the men in her life.

Happy Crafting
