Happy Happy Monday. I am so pleased to tell you I am the hostess this week for Bitten By The Bug2 ... For many folks, summer months usually mean vacation travels so I picked just that for my theme this week. .. Folks are heading to destinations that call to them, or to visit loved ones .... they take trains, planes, buses....and if I were planning a vacay, I would climb in my car. No, I don't own a Chevrolet anymore but I had a few in my life starting with my very first car, a 1949 Chevrolet painted a horrid color of bronze. My next car was a 1953 turquoise Chevrolet Bel Air, followed by a 1954 Red and white Chevry Bel Air, then a 1957. My very first brand new car was a 1962 Chervolet Nova II and I was so proud of that little sweet car...
My card was fun to make, but a little frustrating because I ran into design issues, color themes, layout but in the long run this is what I came up with. A little street scene in some quaint city USA.
The sign is computer generated, and I even added a tiny little license plate that says "Chev". We used to watch Dinah Shore who sang this song so well..... The buildings are from Heritage, and the little cloud drifting overhead is from April Showers. Hope you like my little vacation scene.
