Tamie said...

It can be hard to find vintage car stamps. I really love this one. When I saw it it took me back to my uncles, although his colors were blue. I just love how you colored this card. The layout is simple but the detail is not. Thanks for making me smile.

Wishing you a Happy Birthday with MIM. It sure is exciting to have the one year birthday we are celebrating at 4 Crafty Chicks too. Thanks for your inspiration you give each week :)
