Back In The Card Making Saddle Again!

Hi Everyone!
Have kind of had mixed feeling about card making & paper crafting lately. I had this whole thing typed out explaining why, but I thought what was the point? It just brings up more hurt feelings & what's done is done & I need to move on. Let's just say that the 2 people in my family (hubby's side) will now be getting cards that my hubby picks out for them, just as they want. I had decided to sell a bunch of my stamps & stop making cards completely, I have so many hobbies as it is, but that didn't last long though, I'm not going to let this get me down anymore. I enjoy making cards, I just may not make as many as I've made before.
Enough of all that, today I'm sharing a card I made for a friends boyfriend who is extremely lucky to be alive, it is a true miracle that he is still with us. It's going to be a long hard road for him, but, I know he can do it, he has so many people praying for him. I actually witnessed the power of prayer & how amazing God is! 
Instead of a somber get well card, I thought I would make a fun light hearted card that would hopefully make him smile a bit, plus he's a big Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan.

I'm entering it for the following challenges-
Creative Craft Challenges 2 "All About The Boys"
Hooked On Crafts "For Men"
Make It Monday "Anything Goes"
Fetch A Sketch "Sketch"

Digi Stamp-Dude Time Doodle
Sentiment Stamps-MCT 

As always Gilby & I love your comments...his tails just wags away when he sees me smile!

Thanks for stopping by!
