1938 Suburban.

It's been a while since I pulled out the EP (embossing powder) and when I first saw this image I knew I had to make this classic car shiny. It's hard to see how shiny it is with this photo but it looks real classy.
I am actually a classic car junky. This summer my mum, the kids and I went to three car shows...okay one was driving right by the house (there were close to 100 cars) but the largest one showcased close to 800 cars. It was spectacular. My husband and I both have a dream to restore a classic once we retire. We both have our eye on a certain Porsche so I think we better start saving our pennies now *lol* So in the meantime I will just have to live vicariously through these stamped images from GM. You'll notice I paired this image with the Haunted Cosmo Cricket patterned papers--they just had that right "old" vintage feeling.

Definitely get a car - my Dad has a 53 corvette and a 55 thunderbird. Restoring is fun, but then you get to drive them!! He lets me drive the corvette... Love these new stamps, and your card is wonderful!
