Zooming by with a Birthday Surprise

As usual, I was procrastinating over making a masculine card.  This one is for my son's 21st birthday (next week but we are celebrating this weekend with my parents).

I knew I wanted a car of some sort, because all we have been watching it seems are Mecum auctions and muscle car videos ... do you think he might be hinting he would like to fix up an old Camaro or Chevelle?! Yeah, that's what he has in mind ... our son, caviar dreams on a sardine wallet (LOL).  We tease him about this often.  We tell him he was born into the wrong family for such big ticket items ;) but I do tell him if he sets his mind to it, he will have a good job and then the money to remodel/restore the car of his dreams.  Right now though, a part time job isn't going to get him there right away :) and his mama has too many bills to get him that for this birthday, so ...

for now, he will have to settle for this sweet-looking red sports car card.  This car is from the Silhouette Online store, and there are so many great cars to choose from.  It was hard to pick just one.  I printed it out with my Portrait and created a long card that fits in a letter envelope.


Inky Hugs and brighter tomorrows,

The silhouette store is half off right now too. I think it's all of this month.
