Retro Sketches Challenge #165

Today has me sharing my last Father's Day card.  This one was made with my youngest son, Michael, in mind.  He is my handyman and although he is a project manager at a local business, he still likes to get his hands dirty.  One of his gifts is the ability to figure out what is wrong with a car and fix it.  Wayne, his oldest brother, calls him the Spock of cars because he can put his hand on the car, mind meld with it and figure out the problem.

When I needed a different car, Mike started looking around for one while I started saving my pennies to fund the project.  Lo and behold, he found a Ford Escort LX station wagon that had a blown engine.  Since the engine in my Ford Escort LX sedan was in perfect running order, he swapped out the engines.  Now I have the sweetest little red station wagon that will take me anywhere I want to go.  The beauty of it all is, I have no car payments!  Sweeeeet!  I am so blessed!

For my card, I used up some of the scraps that were left from other projects.  I love being able to use them up.  The new 2015-2016 Annual Catalog is coming out on June 2nd with new colors and new papers and, well, lots of new products.  Here is a sneak peek at Tip Top Taupe, one of the new 2015-2017 In Colors and the new 6 x 6 Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack.
