Playing along with the masculine challenge with the As You Can See It Challenge today. I had a lot of fun creating this group of cards most of which were included in the mailing to the “Making Cards for Troops” group. The image was found online and colored in with colored pencils. The sentiment is computer generated and the map was copied from road and street map that my husband used during his driving career before GPS was available to him. He still would rather look at a map!! Two other samples include one in black and white on kraft and the other is for those “Y”s who prefer trains.
Fun challenge! Thanks for stopping in for a peek.

These are amazing – great guy cards! Would never have thought to use maps! Thanks!
Wonderful cards! I have used maps that I downloaded and print in black and white, but really like the colored ones. The guys will love these.
Super cards. I really like using the map for backgrounds.
Gayle, what super vehicle cards! My hubby would love those! He’s a big car fan! The road maps in the backgrounds are a great touch. Thanks for joining us to apply the “Y” at As You See It Challenges!
I love the inclusion of the road map! Very clever, against the image of the car. Photocopies are great for card makers! Thanks for joining us at As You See It again.
These are such great examples of your mixed media prowess.
These are so cool…my family actually had a station wagon just like that! It made a great bed to sleep in when my parents were snoring too loudly in the camper, LOL! Thanks for playing along at As You See It this week!
WOW!!! These are all absolutely awesome guy cards. Great idea to use the road maps. The first one is so cool and reminds me of my teenage years and the sentiment is a hoot.
These are all great masculine cards! Love the map backgrounds.That’s such a fun touch that adds interest.
Such cool looking masculine cards. Love the use of the maps and your designs work so well.
Awesome masculine card designs! Great use of the “vintage” navigation tools – lol! Love that first sentiment.
