One More For Dad

     Here's yet another card for a special man, this time using an image from "Fred, She Said."  I love this old pick up.

     I remember a cousin who had a pick up very similar to this and it was just about that color of blue.  It was his first "car" and it rattled loudly since it was already well used when he got it but it was his first and he was so proud of it.   I'm sure this digi must be based on his old truck because it has a yellow license plate just like he had on his!  His plate didn't say "CLNKER" but it should have.  Of course, that was back before personalized plates were available in California.  :-D

     This is very simple -- the image is die cut with a die I borrowed; the twine was in my stash, the card base is made from new CS I just got the other day, and I kept it all very CAS.
