'ABC' Challenges - Masculine cards

Hello dear friends and followers!  Here it is a new week and a whole new month of challenges at 'ABC' Challenges.  We thought we'd kick off  the June challenges with a  "Masculine" theme.  Yep... that's right, with father's day just around the corner we thought it might be a good idea to make a card for the men in our lives.  My card is ultra clean and quick this week.  My Dad is not one to appreciate a lot of frills or fancy paper - however he does like cards that play music or have some moving part on them.  He's out of luck in that aspect from me as I don't do moving parts quite yet - lol! 
Dad's not a huge outdoors guy (unless he's working) nor does he hunt, he doesn't watch much tv (my Mom doesn't complain as she doesn't have to share the tele with him), and the only sport he likes to watch is basketball.  But my dear Daddy really loves old cars, fast cars (once he had a corvette - whoooeeee was that fun to drive) and small planes.  So, I bet you are wondering why I chose this old bicycle.  I decided to be a bit funny with my Dad because he has been talking about slowing down lately and just not being able to do all the things he used to (or as fast).  I'm borrowing a really funny sentiment from a friend to put in the inside - it says something about no longer living life in the fast lane (can't recall the whole saying just now) and then I'll put a digi of a race car inside (since I don't have a stamp of that).  I think he will appreciate it. 
The other fine gals on the DT at 'ABC' Challenges have made some terrific cards to inspire  you this week - I hope you will go visit them and then decide to play along.  Hope your week (and your month) is starting off wonderful.  Til next time... hugs and happy crafting! D
