It's a Celebration!

My eldest daughter just passed her road driving test, yahoo! No more alcohol free weekends waiting to go pick up teenagers way past my bedtime! 
I struggled to find an image I wanted so ended up having to draw her new car with a little help from PSP I might add, I am no artist!  Believe it or not, she is not a card person but she seemed quite chuffed with this one and put it up on her shelves! If it didn't show her car I am sure it wouldn't have been the case but she does love her little 'bug'!
I followed the sketch on Everybody Art by Tina but I am afraid it may already be too late as I am sure the next challenge is in the morning and of course its already 2.30am in Europe
I didn't want to post this until I was sure she had passed!
The 'Celebration' sentiment is one of the fabulous new digital sentiments now available to purchase and download from Whimsy Stamps. There are so many fantastic sentiments and quotes to choose from we are now utterly spoilt rotten!
I also used a Whimsy Accessory stamp, a gorgeous swirl which is part of the Proud Mama  Rubber Stamp set  from the Carousel Horse Collection designed by Crissy Armstrong,
You can also see the brand new Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection of images designed by Crissy Armstrong and Katie Sowa!
The hop is currently taking place and you have until noon (EST) on friday to join in and leave a link on the Whimsy Home Page to be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize
a $15 gift certificate for the Whimsy Store
plus digital images from Crissy, Katie, Ann and Whimsy Stamps Design Studio. 
 See Whimsy Home Page for more details!
The designer paper is from the Paper Company, the letters stamps are from a very old See D's pack, the calendar stamp I think is a mini imaginisce stamp and the gorgeous key is one of a 3 pack set from Making Memories 'metal pebble key'.
did you all enjoy a back to normal day today after school holidays etc? those that have had them, I know some places have still to have their spring break, lucky people! 
Hope the weather continues to improve for you all, not so good here, more snow forecast, I am so finished with snow now!  Roll on summer!
Have a great day!

I had a volkswagon for 14 years so I love that stamp. I may be that I spelled that wrong! You did a great job.
