A Tribute to My Dad

Classic Truck Today’s Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #29 card is dedicated to my dad.  The stamp is from an Oldie, but Goodie and although it doesn’t have the Chevrolet symbol, if know trucks, then you’ll know this is a 1965-1969 Chevy truck.  How do I know?  My dad had one and it’s what I learned to drive on.  She was the family’s sole transportation and she outlasted all of us.  Ultimately my dad gifted the truck to my uncle.  I have fond memories of that ole’ girl.  It’s probably why I love trucks….lol.  

My dad would never have had his favorite truck in a card if it weren’t for my friend Sue who sold it to me and didn’t take my arms and legs as payment over at Retired Stamps for Sale.  Thank you Sue so much from the bottom of my heart. You have truly not just made my heart smile, but also my dad’s heart.

MAGGIE MADE TIPS:

  • Retired Stamps.  Use them!  Just because I sell current items doesn’t mean I can’t use them on my blog.  I mean, I wish they were still for sale and you could buy them, but don’t worry, if I have a set that you’d love to have just send an email and I’ll be more than happy stop set you a stamped image of the set.
  • One Strip of Bright Color.  Doesn’t the lone piece of red seem to make the whole card burst with color?  LOL…I think it does.  Although the colors are not too over-powering the red brings your eyes right smack to the center of the card to show you the center of my masterpiece. HA!  Try it next time you make a card.  Use at least three like or opposite colors and throw in a small piece of bright-colored card stock.  I’m willing to bet it gives the eye a place to focus.  Kind of weird, but it really does.  Scroll back up and take a look.

    Very striking card with the touch of red, I agree. Can you tell what paper is the striped black and white from?

    Thank you,
    Shirley
