A Family Card and Happy Memories

Hi everyone, I thought I'd just post this card that I made for my wonderful Uncle's birthday.
John is my Mum's brother and was the baby of the family, sadly he's been quite poorly for a while but he usually loves the vintage style cards that I make (not that he's biased or anything lol!) so I hope he likes this one too.
I've had these vintage car images for ages, so long that I can't remember where they originally came from, I'm afraid.

Card Details:
* Papers - K & Co and Hot Off The Press
* Alphabet Stickers - Brenda Walton (from QVC)
* Everything else from my stash

I'm entering this card for the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew #48 - Happy Birthday
My Time To Craft #87 - Pretty Pearls
Paper Cutz Challenge #36 - 3 Patterned Papers

Speaking of my lovely Mum, I thought I'd pop on a photo which I've just framed. It was taken 5 years ago at my eldest son's wedding. It was such a lovely day and this brought back so many happy memories. The photo originally included a couple of other people, but I scanned it and cropped them out as I wanted it to be just Mum and I.
I'll be back on Sunday with my first DT card for Wendy's brand new CD Sunday Challenge so if you're not otherwise engaged, why not pop over and take a look or drop by here to see what I've come up with.
Take care blogging buddies!
