The Kraft Journal Make it Monday

Hey, peeps!  Happy Thursday!  The weekend is almost here!  I got some new goodies a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t wait to use them on a Father’s Day card for my step-FIL!!!

I stamped collage-style on a Crumb Cake card base using Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake and Pistachio Pudding (see the cactus?), and only added a couple of little embellishments! I popped up the “Route 66” image and did a little 3D banner:


and of course, some stamping on the inside:


My step-FIL lives in a retirement village and his apartment is modestly furnished, but he does have many photos on the walls.  One of his treasured photos shows him when he was just out of high school, standing next to his beloved motorcycle.  Now, I have no idea what make or model it was (DH could tell you, though!), but regardless, I know this card will make him smile!   This qualifies for The Kraft Journal's Make it Monday challenge too, which is "Just for Him".

Since we’re doing a “manly” theme today, I thought I would show you a couple of photos of Cassidy “helping” Grampy in his workshop:


John was with her the whole time, so don’t be concerned that she was going to spray something or hurt herself!  But she was quite intrigued with all the tools!

Wonderful card! When I was long ago......we went on a road trip to California and I thought it was so cool to be on Route 66! And I saw many of those flying red horses!

I love this card and your step FIL will too. These images are wonderful and I really like the way you did the banner. Your collage bg is great especially with the cactus included;)
Looks like Grampy has permanent helper there --- so cute seeing Cassidy leaning the "trade".
