TTTC122 Birthday Chevy

 Hey there, everyone!  It's Thursday afternoon and time for a new Tic Tac Toe challenge!  It's Team X's turn with Betty as hostess!  I needed a very special birthday card for a very special man in our church who turned 80 years young!  The grid this week was perfect for my vintage Chevrolet card; I chose Diecut, Sentiment and Metallic:

And here we go:

I used an old Cuttlebug embossing folder to do the diamond plate embossing on a piece of Silver Foil cardstock; the Chevy image is from a Unity set called For the Guys.  I did some diecutting with some Stitched Rectangle and Stitched Shape dies, then added "hb" using an old Papertrey die:

I added two sentiments, both from Unity sets, to add a little humor to the inside!  I know he'll like it!

Hope you'll play along with our Tic Tac Toe grid this week and be sure to check out the amazing samples from our Design Team!  Can't wait to see what you create!  Thanks for popping in today!

Speaking of cars, we had a luncheon at church on Sunday for a visiting pastor, and my former shop teacher, who is now retired and mows the grass for us, showed up in THIS CAR:

It's a 1939 Ford Model A, which he restored.  He brought it to give our pastor a ride, LOL!  The cool thing is that he has a license plate on the front that shows he drove it to Kanab, Utah!!!  I wonder if he visited the Stampin' Up! factory while he was there?  (Probably not!)  It reminds me of my first bookkeeping job, which was at a Buick dealership; once a year, my boss would get out his old Buick and take us for a ride through the town of Summit, NJ!  I would love to drive this one, but no power steering or brakes...I'll just look at it!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

What a fun card for your special friend's birthday LeAnne! I love the car your former shop teacher turned up in - now that is a cool car in my book! Vicky x

That looks like a 57 Chevy on your card, my brother has one! Terrific birthday card for any special man! How fun that he came to take your pastor for a ride. Sounds like a great guy!
