Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge-Father's Day

Today's challenge at Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge is to make a Father's Day Card. I have used the "Big Boys Toys" stamp for my card this week. Come and join us for a fun challenge. Thank you so much for those of you who participated in our flower challenge. It was awesome to see all your fabulous creations.
This image reminds me of Sunday afternoon drives with my parents. When I was growing up, my parents would take us for a Sunday afternoon drive some where. They never had a plan as to where we were going. We would drive to the lake, or maybe take a walk in the forest, go to an orchard, sometimes the ocean. These drives would always include ending up at my Grandmother's house. Sometimes we would get ice cream, sometimes we would go to dinner, or just pack a picnic lunch. Great memories!!! My father loved the color red so that is why I did this card in red. He would have loved it!

What a lovely (even for a man)card. We went for Sunday drives too, usually to the park where there was a flowing water well, a train we would ride and fresh popped pop corn. Ahhh the simple life..... Thanks for playing Simply Create this week!
