I instantly reached for this stamp set and wanted to make a masculine card, although I'm not quite sure why. Maybe its because I'm missing my dad and my grandpa. I notice that when I mention the passing of my father or such on my blogs people get awfully quiet, but I'm not going to apologize for doing it, or stop. My father (and grandparents) inspired me every day of my life and he/they continue to inspire me in everything I do, including stamping. I bought this stamp set specifically with my Grandpa in mind, as he was a retired railroad man. Unfortunately he passed a few weeks after I got the set so I never got to make a card for him using this image.
Anyway, thats the inspiration behind this card, and I'm happy with the way it turned out.
