On the Road Again!

I just got back from the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Valley Forge where I had a great time scrapping and shopping. Tomorrow, I am headed back to Pennsylvania with Melissa to visit my sister. Since I have been spending so much time in the car lately, it seems fitting to share the card I made for my brother-in-law's birthday last month. Here it is:
I was inspired to create this card after a recent family gathering where we were all talking about our talents. Sal gardens. Mark runs. Melissa dances. My sister, Diane, speaks French and Spanish fluently. My niece, Lisa, sings. And Frankie drives. Frankie is the type of guy who would drive 200 miles for an afternoon visit. He has logged hundreds of thousands of miles behind the wheel of the car so we tease him that driving is his talent!

Here's the inside of the card. I thought the sentiment was appropriate!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink;
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey (Wander);
Stamps: Hero Arts (Happiness Messages; Travel Journal);
Ink: Ranger (Black);
Tools: Cricut by Provo Craft (Graphically Speaking)
Pen: Uni-ball Signo Broad (White)

What a great card! It's perfect for the talented driver! I'll admit to loving to ride while my hubby drives. Is that a talent? LOL We have actually driven a 300 mile round trip on more than one occasion to visit with his parents for an afternoon. :) It's fun!

Oh, this is absolutely perfect for your brother, considering your story. Gave me a good chuckle! Thanks for sharing this cute idea for a masculine card, Linda!
