Men and Their Cars --{PIN} 90

Hello, Friends!  Hope this post finds you in good spirits and well on your way to wonderful things in 2014.  It's time for another challenge at {PIN}spirational Challenges.  Here's my card:

You can enter five (yes!  5!)  times for a chance to win prizes from our sponsors -- Fresh Brewed Designs, Stamping Dragon, and Digi Darla's.   

Deanne has chosen an interesting photo to inspire us all!  I love the warm hues of this photos, the vintage auto and sign, but then my mind, as always, began to free associate....

When I saw the image, my mind wandered from vintage autos to men tinkering with their toys and I settled on an image from Digi Darla.  You can find her wonderful images HERE because she is sure to have some image that will fit wherever your mind will wander.  And now the project inspired by the picture.  

I challenged myself to work from the ''basket" as I call the conglomeration of bits and pieces that accumulate on my work counter.  I colored the image with Promarkers and used Spellbinders dies.  I never seem to have enough masculine cards in my completed pile so this will be a welcome addition to my stash.  I think the recipient will think of "happy days" with their favorite cars, when they received their first car and celebrated...

I will enter this project in the following projects:
