The skies are above are clear again...


My dad used to have a 45 record with the song "Happy Days are Here Again" on it. I can still hear it in my head and I think I know all the words. Such a fun uplifting song. I was inspired to create this super-quick card when I realized this stamp set was just sitting on my desk un-inked. And then the song became stuck in my head!
We used to have a 1961 black VW bug convertible when I was younger. Man I loved that thing! Ahh, nostalgia.

Love the car stamped as a background! We had a few bugs growing up too. I especially remember an orange one we had. It had a small rusted out hole in the floor board. My brother and I thought it was so cool that we could see the road whiz by underneath the car! Haha, simple pleasures!
