Another Dad? card

Hi Lovelies,

Okay so I'm entering this card into two challenges.  Firstly I'm using the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  I flipped the sketch & added a second row.  Hope that's okay.

 

This is also my entry for Die Cut Divas.  Over on their blog this month's challenge is August Vacations.  So for this card to be eligible for the Die Cut Divas challenge, an explanation maybe in order.

When I was a little girl (about 30 ish years ago now) we lived in Western Australia.  Now for those of you that don't know W.A. that well it's on the large side (and maybe one of the largest states in Australia).  I've lived all over W.A. but mainly in the northern parts think 12 hours (driving) north of the capital Perth.   My Nanna lived about 2 hours south of Perth in a place called Mandurah. A very pretty beachside town.  So every time we went on vacation (we visited Nanna a lot) we had to drive to get there.  In fact on my last holiday to W.A. we spent about 7-8 hours driving from Perth to Shark's Bay. With a very cranky 2 yr old and a 6 yr old in the car.   It was well worth the long drive - my mum was laughing (she was in her own car) as she could see an arm continuously feeding biscuits to the cranky 2 yr old for the last hour of the trip ;D.

Have a great day & happy crafting.  To see my first post for today please check it out here.
