Father's Day Snipit

So for once I am actually on the ball and have all my Father's day cards made ahead of time. Now if I can only motivate enough to get them in the mail on time I will be doing good. So I normally don't post cards until the recipient has received them, but I am making an exception because I decided to enter the card I made for my Father into the Tiddly Inks "Take it Easel-y challenge". I am super excited because the challenge uses Easel cards which are my favorite to make because easel cards are more of a little gift than cards. You can set them up and display their beauty for all the world to see. I am also excited because I used the stamp that helped me discover Tiddly Inks, it's called Father's Day Vintage Truck. I was looking last year for an old truck stamp and came across Tiddly Inks. Of course, I bought the truck stamp right away because I LOVED it, and then I started browsing all the other amazing images Christy has to offer in her webstore. I became a HUGE fan and now have tons of her wonderful images.
Truck Cardwm1I have to admit, The vintage truck is one of my favorites because it reminds me of a truck my dad used to have. I learned to drive in the truck and I loved it as much as my dad did. It was our "thing" I am so excited to give this card to him for father's day.
As usual, I colored this with PRISMACOLOR pencils and odorless mineral spirits. The card itself is nothing fancy, but that is just the way my dad would have it and I know he will love it.
Hope you all are having a great day!! Thanks for Reading!
