This time I managed to make a card a few weeks before his birthday - I was not going to have the last minute panic that I had the previous year so started looking around for ideas early.
I do find it hard to pick different topics each year but when I saw this topper of a map, old car and motel sign in a shield, it reminded me of our holiday stay in Holbrook, Arizona this year along Route 66. We had stayed in a motel along the old Route 66 and my husband loved it, especially as there were a few murals on the walls of nearby building of the Route 66. As soon as I saw it, I knew that it was right for him and it would be great as an easel card which he likes.
For the shape of the card, I used Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Large Labels.
