I made this card for my Dad for his birthday -- he's a farmer who lives in the mountains, and since we've always loved Snoopy this seemed appropriate. I masked Snoopy into position (the original stamp is an old foam mounted one with Snoopy on rollerblades - his paw just happened to be in the right postion to "drive"!)

Thanks for the kind words! It's nice to know my FlyBaby friends are out there watching :)
I need to get more "tips" on uploading a card to improve my color resolution (It was really a bright, cheerful card in real life and looks washed out here....oh well, it's only my second card to be uploaded.)

Love the Snoopy addition to this card, looks like he's thinking he's going to loose his cake......I wouldn't want to loose a cake like that!
