Happy Wednesday, peeps! Did you notice the title of my post today? I added "almost" because I "almost" used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches this week...here it is:
And here's my card...I just could NOT tilt that panel...it looked like my classic car was going to crash, going downhill!! I still liked the sketch, so I just used it with an untilted panel! Hopefully they'll be forgiving, if not, that's okay too!!
Anyway, at first glance, this would seem to be a birthday card for a 70-year-old, but it's not! One of our local businesses is celebrating 70 years! It's a used-car dealership, and the owner is a friend of ours; he's continuing the business that his father started in 1948. We have bought several cars from him, and having been in the car business myself for 25 years, it's sometimes hard to find someone who is honest and trustworthy, but Kenny certainly is! So this card is for him...to celebrate his business ethic and hard work!
I recently got this vintage car image from Unity Stamps and just in time! The license plate paper is some from my friend Teri, and I thought it would be a fun background!
For the other element of the sketch, I diecut an open star, added vellum behind it as well as some corduroy ribbon, then added "70" with SU's Little Numbers:
I used leftover scraps to create the inside....I hope he has a good sense of humor! (I think he does)!
I am also entering this in the Male Room Challenge, which is "cars"!!
Yesterday was Teacher Appreciation Day (which John thought was T-Shirt Appreciation Day...I think he needs his hearing checked) and Grammy just happened to have a card that Cassidy approved of for her teacher:
I love the pigtails! Have a blessed day and thanks for popping in! Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Inspired By challenge, too!
