Gettin' old ..........

Ain't for sissies!

Well, at least that's what Bette Davis says :)

Today is the day that the 3 Musketeers post our cards with the same image.
By the time this post hits blogland,
we'll be almost at our road trip destination!
We are off on our last summer Hurrah before school starts ....

except ....

we will be arriving in a car!

I was the hostess this round and just thought this image would be a hoot!
I have had this gorgeous wooden Diamonds stamp for YEARS
and it has never seen ink!
I actually picked it up for .50c at a LSS garage sale
where the lady told me the company was no longer in business,
which is always sad when a stamp company closes down :(
 The stamp was crisp and clear and even has a small diamond 
embedded into the wood - I imagine their "signature"! :)
Based on how fun this was to stamp and color,
I wish I'd inked it up years ago!

                                     So here is my getting couple!
Be sure to see what Barb and Jeanette
 have created with the image I sent them, too!
Big hugs, bigger blessings!

  5. Kelly, your card is a delightful mix of great papers, awesome coloring, and a diamond studded image too! Love it! I also loved this stamp - being a biker in my earlier life, I always think motorcycle images are fun, but this one may very well be the best I've ever seen. Love that couple.
