Hi Everyone!

I finally got my craft mojo back & spent some time in my craft room this weekend. As most of you know, my family has been through a lot lately, so I was happy when I felt the craft bug this weekend, as I haven't crafted since before Christmas. 
Before I get on to my project, just wanted to give you a little update on everyone. Since both of my sisters are named Tammy & they both are fighting different kinds of cancer from now on I'm going to refer to them as Tammy (Breast Cancer) & Tamera (Brain Cancer). Tammy is still recuperating from the first part of her reconstructive surgery, unfortunately she's still in pain & very tired, more so than she had anticipated. Tamera started chemo & radiation this past week & is tolerating it fairly well, the good thing is that she's not in pain right now. Being the little sis, I've looked up to them all my life & seeing how strong they have been over the past month just makes me so proud! Gilby hasn't had a fever is a # of days now & appears to be getting back to his puppy self, it's so good see him running around & hearing his bark. We are still concerned about his breathing & the thickening around part of his heart, but for now, we don't want to put his little body through anymore tests at least for the time being. 

Ok, so on to my project. This is a very Belated Birthday card for my BIL (Tammy's husband).
He is really into Nascar Racing, so when I saw this image on the Dude Time Doodles, I knew I had to use it. I thought of the "Git-R-Done", but hubby came up with the inside sentiment, which I think is perfect!
I used my new Cameo & MTC to create the Circle Card, then used Nestabilities for the layers.
You can't really tell unless you click on the picture but I used "Diamond Plate" CB Folder on the Black card stock & distressed it with sand paper & then rubbed some Platinum Embossing Ink all over it. Used Copic Markers & Silver Metallic Gel Pen to color the image.
The font is "Apple Boy BTN" 

I'm entering this into the following Challenges:
