On The Road Again........FMS186






 
1970.......it was green......with a big yellow flower on the back.....my first VW Beetle. I was in love! I learned how to shift, steer and scrape ice that formed on the inside of the windshield without missing a beat. That green bug was followed by a blue one and then a silver one.  I thought there was nothing that could separate me from my beetle.........until I had to wrestle a baby and a carseat in the back seat........


                   Jen Brum has a delightful sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

CUTE!!! I almost learned to drive a stick in a Beetle too....never quite got the hang of it until many, many years later! I am sure my ex cringed as a stalled and ground the gears, LOL! This is just adorable and I love the movement you've got going!

Love this cute card, Linda, especially the eyelet holes. That's a mighty big obstacle hose cars are having to climb over!

I love your card!!! It just made me smile - I learned to drive my first stick in a little Honda 37 years ago in Pittsburgh. Those hills were killers! Thanks for inspiring me!!!

Claire Ventre said...

Awesome! I agree with everyone - what a cute card and my second car was a green standard Beetle. What a fun card!

Dawn Tidd said...

Cute, cute, cute! I love everything about this card! I never had a beetle but we did camp cross-country in a VW camper! ;)

I love your card! I have fond memories of a pair of matching white bugs my grandparents had!

Jen Mitchell said...

Now that's a great story. Never would have pegged your for a Beetle girl! Great card to celebrate that car and your adventurous spirit!!

Lesley said...

Well this is one cute card and a fabulously clever way to use the sketch! I always wanted one of those cars...and you had 3! Fantastic!

Amy O said...

Cute, cute, cute! I love the large piercing on your panels and the fun colors. I can totally believe that carseats and Beetles don't mix.

Karren said...

This is just the cutest card ever! Your cars driving over the circle is just too clever and I loved your Beetle story!

So funny! My girlfriend had beetle all through high school ... '66'-'69... we had so much fun in that thing..and when my sister got married a few years later, her & hubby each had one - green & blue - with half the HEART "Just Married" side by side.

Jen Brum said...

Love this card Linda! those Beetles are so cute! I can't believe you owned one...or three for that matter! I'm jealous! Love your stitched circle, that very cool border and those fun triangles!

Cindy said...

Another very clever design! I love the way your cars travel over the circle! Too cool. Another "why didn't I think of that" moment!

Rita Wright said...

LOL You always crack me up! Love this card. The dots, the stitching, the cars driving over the circle...all fabulous!

Jill Norwood said...

I love VW beetles and vans....our family has owned many of both over the years. Love your sweet card!

This card is adorable and of course I have to add attribute to my beetle. In 1973, it was bright yellow. During it's long lifespan it got hit on 3 out of 4 sides. My husband swears its because I picked a color that looked like a target.

Love the card! Didn't have a beetle but had a VW Fastback for a while. Would love to do a Beetle (or more) charging down a hill or a road for a friend who loved hers, but haven't been able to get a silhouette one like yours. The only one I could see only shipped to the U.S. and Canada, not to Australia. Where did you get yours please?
