V is for Vehicles and a little story or two!

V is for Vehicles is the latest challenge over on the Alphabet challenge blog...I'm spoilt for choice as I've been making loads of cards that fall under that category over the last few days....all with Tanda stamps...but I'm saving those for future Teasers....well they are teasers...what can I say! LOL!

So I will just have to share this card....it's a digital download from Charmed Crafts.... for the boy next door who just passed his driving test! Images are coloured with Copics...backing papers are Papermania...I think?!

I have fond memories of being driven around London as a very little girl in my would be God mother's VW Beetle.("would be" because I was never Christened and she would have been my godmother if I had if you see what I mean)..she was Canadian and so was the Beetle.....we got a lot of very shocked looks from other drivers....surely this little girl couldn't be driving!!! it was a Hoot!... LOL!!!

That just reminded me of another funny story! This awesome lady took me to see Swan Lake at Covent Garden....we had seats in the Stalls and as I was only little...I took a cushion to sit on....in the days of the IRA the security guards were not going to let me take the cushion into the auditorium because it might have been a bomb....I got quite upset! I told them that there was absolutely no way that I was going to sit on a bomb and they were stupid to think such a thing....they let me though with my cushion. The ballet was magical...I still enjoy ballet to this day.
