The Great Escape

Cards just don't come much simpler than this one, made when I needed a card in a hurry:).  My younger son was 17 last week and asked for money for driving lessons.  With just minutes to go, DH pinted out that "we" should give him a suitable card with the promise of lessons inside it...

After ransacking my small stash of masculine cards and realising that I had NOTHING suitable, I remembered that Fred She Said had a truck digi image - miraculously there is even a coloured version - phew!  I grabbed some My Minds Eye DP and used both sides of it, following the sketch at Midnight Madness.  The words are a clear sticker from a travel set, I have no idea where it came from, it's been sitting in a drawer for years!  The brass brads are from stash.

I'm also entering:
