Route 66 Card

I'm back from a mini vacation to Rancho Cucamonga also know as Alta Loma, CA. Hubby's niece, 3rd oldest daughter of his youngest brother, got married. Hubby drove since airfare + luggage fees + all the other air fees were more expensive than gas. On the way there we stopped at the Cadillac Ranch off I 40 W of Amarillo, TX. You can read more about the Cadillac Ranch by clicking here. I'll post a few photos w/ each blog post.

Created this card with a Route 66 theme reminiscent of part of our mini vacation.  Used a sketch which you can see below.
