A Classic VW Beetle for Handmade Monday

Gosh the weeks are rattling around really quickly, it's been a really busy week for me again, I'm certainly not complaining, I love doing what I do.

One of the things I've done this week was a Plaque for a Beetle fan, no, not the creepy crawly insect kind and not the sing song band but the VW Classic Car kind.
I painted the plaque from a couple of photo's I was sent, it's a lovely car and a beautiful colour, this is what I came up with. (the plaque has the registration plate painted on but I've pixelated it out for on here)

I was very pleased with the final result and more importantly the customer and the 'Birthday Boy' were really pleased. I got some great feedback, here is a snippet....

It's arrived! :) He loves it (and so do I)!!
Packing was lovely too.
Thanks so much!

It's Handmade Monday once again, a time to relax and have a mooch around lots of other great blogs, so follow the link and pop over, enjoy and have a great week.
