I had a little mini car.....

Does anyone else remember that skipping song I had a little mini car in 1968? Well that's the year we added but could be any year lol. Anyway this card is for an 18 year old who has a little red mini. The card looks a bit messy with all that pattern but its fine in real life. Still struggling along with a bad cold and IBS at the minute:) anyone with a secret cure please pass it on!
Image - Tickled Pink image, mini is a colouring in page
Embellishments - ribbon, sizzix letters, glitter, number stickers

This skipping song must have come along way after I'd given it up - yes they did have skipping ropes in my day.
I had a mini though and would have loved a card like this at the time. It's brilliant.

Hello Pinky!

Love your bright funky card even though I dont recognise the song!

When the kids were small we got a second car, its was £50 and was a clapped out old mini but I loved it as it was mine! I remember when I woke up in the morning I walked over to the kids window and look out at it!
Best bit was that when we moved the car mat in the passenger seat there was a big hole and we used to watch the road going underneath us!!

Thanks Pinky for your support in taking part in this challenge especially as it's our first one at Delicious Doodles! (How surreal does this feel?!)

Pinky, what a gorgeous card. No I don't remember the song. I've recently been seeing a Herbalist for quite a number of things including IBS. I take 4 slippery elm capsules when I start the twinges and within a few hours it's normally gone - certainly nothing like what I have been through. Kym xxx

Ha! You brought back memories with this one! Silly me drove a Mercedes but when I met DH he drove a VW bug. It was love at first sight! This 18 year old is one lucky dude, in more ways than one!

Ah hun, sorry you are feeling poorly. I have that IBS thing - yucky isn't it?
My first car was a mini I shared with my MUM, then I got an Escort Mk2 in metallic green. Loved that old thing!
