Smokin Hot Daddy-O

~Stash - Kraft Cardstock for base of card, sentiment, and motorcycle
~Piece of Paper Doily for the gas tank on the motorcycle - paper pieced and then colored with Black Spectrum Noir Marker
~Teddy Bear & Sky Blue Stamp N Plus Chalking Ink for the smoke coming out of the motorcycle
~Digital Sentiment Created by me
~Digital Motorcycle Digi Darla (I won this digital stamp - thank you)
~Scrap of Gear DCWV Cardstock for the road
~Embossing Gear Folder by Darcie on white card-stock for the background
~Pop Up Tape Behind the Motorcycle - Forever in Time

The Story: My husband owned a Goldwing Motorcycle when we were first married. His personality would change when we took summer rides - and I am not kidding!  In my eyes, my husband became Marlon Brando! We laugh about that even today. Hubby will get this card sometime this year as an encouragement & reminder that I still think he is all that and hot too!
This is Marlon Brando
Thank you for stopping by today - It is always an honor to have you visit - enjoy your week!
