Masculine get well

Trying to restock my inventory of get well cards. Today's is for men
The DP was given to me by a friend. She made a great find at a yard sale this past summer and so generously shared with me. I stamped a Tim Holtz compass over the top and sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink. The car image is a very old one stamped on a die cut circle. The copper sparkle Washi tape adds a feel of a highway. I guess you won't know this is a get well until you see the inside
I did a sentiment on the computer and then stamped 2 images from SU Gorgeous Grunge to look like tire tracks on a road.
This is getting in to Freshly Made Sketches just under the wire

I am so sorry, I still cannot figure out why the image does not show up.  Any ideas? I am using a MacBook.

Get Well Seaside

If you wanted to go somewhere to do some recuperating, wouldn't you love to go here?
I am sorry the picture is a little hazy. I haven't decided on photo editing software for my new MacBook. Any suggestions?
The paper and stamps are from Stampin' Up! I love this Wetlands set. I use it a lot. The little sun in the upper left is from the new Swirly Birds set. The sentiment is from the old Angel Company. I really like the font. The colors are SU Pool Party.
Thanks to Tuesday Morning Sketches for the inspiration


Okay, anybody tell me what to do to get the picture to show up? I did the copy and past but keep getting the box with the question mark. Probably simple but haven't been able to figure it out.
Also entering the challenge at CASology whose que word is Soft
And I can't get their sign to copy. and paste.
 AAARRGGGH! Learning new computer is frustrating!


What with a computer crash, buying and getting used to a new MacBook, and having a successful craft show and sale, I have kind of run out of Mojo. Oh, and I also cleaned up the exploded mess in the craft room to an organized mess!
So I pulled up the Mojo Monday sketch to get a kick start. I really need to restock my stash of get well and birthday cards.
And please forgive the picture flaws, I haven't learned a new photo editing program yet. Have to wait until Christmas to see my son-in-law, the Apple expert.
The products are all Stampin' Up except the sentiment which is from Morning Star Stamps.
Here is the sketch


And can someone tell me why the copied images do not show up? I do the copy and paste functions.

I saw this saying somewhere, wrote it down but not the source. I just knew it would made a cute card with the NBUS elf stamp from Stampabilities.
I am sorry the pic is not very good. A couple of weeks ago, my computer crashed. Even the Geek Squad could not get into it to transfer files. I bought a MacBook Pro and am still learning about it. Haven't learned the photo editing yet.
The card base is Real Red from SU. The plaid DP is Lawn Fawn. The note is also Stampabilities. It is stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with red embossing power. Then fussy cut. The elf was also stamped on scrap white, colored with pencils and fussy cut. The green sparkly ribbon is actually an after Halloween sale at Michael's.

Swinging Snowman

Looking at this snowman image, you can almost hear the kids at the playground squealing to go higher. Pure joy!
This is a free digi from Free Dearie Dolls Digistamps. Mary Ellen draws the cutest images.
The DP is from last year SU, perfect background for swinging on a strand of lights.. The joy is cut with Tim Holtz alphabet. I used scraps of green ribbon and background under the circle.
Here is a close up.
