Remeber the 60's with Dr Digi

In the 60's some people would buy a Veedub beetle and paint them with retro designs, these people where called Hippies, of course I am to Young to remember this lol, but my much older brother told me all about it.
the papers I have used to paper piece my Veedub is from Dovecraft Retro paper pack backing paper from same pack,ribbon and sentiment from stash, Veedub image available in store at the fabulous price of just 50p  why not pick one up and decorate your own Veedub Beetle Dr. Digi's House of Stamps'
Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate it.
Have a great day
Kevin xx

Oh yes I remember Kevin, mini skirts and the Beatles as well, from memory it was my rebellious stage and I was probably a horrid child !

Donna Ellis said...

hahaha! of COURSE you are too young to remember these things, young man. :-) As teenagers my girl friend and I spent a lot of time in a VW similar to this only our car was painted with "flower power" all over. FABULOUS card - your imagination really did a great job on this one, Kevin. I like all the "white dazzle" just above the car, and all the flowers popped up and on the paper - the paper is really perfect for your motif! Thanks for the fun memories, Kevin, AND for sharing beautiful, fun, amazing artwork. hugs, de
