Father's Day Classic Car and Free Cut Files!

Welcome back to my little corner of the world! Well, I am happy to report to you that my weight loss journey is going well :) It's been just over 2 months since I began my new lifestyle change... the way I eat and weight training exercises has been a very, very good thing!!! I would NEVER have thought that I could go one day without eating all those goodies - especially C H O C O L A T E ! However, with God's help, I've been able to fill my body with healthy, nourishing food instead of all those empty calories. I know I've got a long way to go to get to my healthy weight, but I am very encouraged with the 13 pounds I've lost so far - yay!!!

Not even celebrating Father's Day is going to make me gorge myself with sugary treats. I might have a bite of something yummy, but I know myself... and it's not pretty when I start - it's really like an alcoholic - ugh!

Father's Day... I'm thankful for my husband. Really. I say that because it wasn't always the case! I'm also sure that he feels the same way - he hasn't always been thankful for me lol! But this year, I truly am thankful for him ♥ I love you, Honey!!!

Here's my Classic Car Shaped Card I used from The Cutting Cafe...

I'd like to enter the following Challenges:
Simon Says - Masculine/Father's Day
Crafty Sentiments - For a Male
Papertake Weekly - Hello Boys
ABC Challenge - Open
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
The Kraft Journal - Just for Him
Craft Your Passion - Father's Day/Masculine

Ya know... for a guy card, I think it's pretty cool! What do you think? I know that hubby will like it :) He's a car guy all the way lol!

There are various pieces that come with this file. You can use some or all of them! The sentiment is included (as well as other sentiments!). Regina always includes lots of variety to choose from.

I did make a change to the original cut file. I created the windows on the card base which were already on the top layers. I also cut out transparency material to mimic glass :) The wood grain patterns are included in the Silhouette software. I created print and cuts for the pieces.

Have you taken a peek at The Cutting Cafe lately? You won't be disappointed! The files are soooo reasonable AND adorable!!! Regina is always coming up with FUN files : )

Are you ready for your FREE CUT FILES? I decided that since I'm showing you the car I made for hubby, I'd offer some Car Cut Files. Please be assured that these are NOT The Cutting Cafe files. I would never share those - that's just wrong lol!

If you've been visiting lately, you know that I created some adorable Onesies using a Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Kit and Silhouette Heat Transfer Material. I created those cut files from Boy Joy Kit HERE.

Thanks for visiting my sweet friends

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~

I love the wood look of this card. In fact, I thought you had made it from wood paper. The glass windows just put it right over the top - awesome.
