A little Nostalgia......


Have you all seen the adorable digi images
that you can get from
"Phindy's Place" on Etsy?

Well let me tell you, when I saw this Digi,
I absolutely HAD to have it.
Other than "Mr. Browns" mustache,
this reminded me of my dad.

I just HAD to make a birthday card for him
using this absolutely fantastic image.

My dad is in his 70's, and I grew up being
honored with all his old time stories.  I still hear them
and they never get old.  I love to listen to him
talk about the old days, but in every story, there was some
specific old time car involved.
  I mean I could list the names of some cars
that most people my age wouldn't have any idea
what they were, or what company made them.  LOL

If anyone were to step inside my fathers house,
they would see a curio cabinet with all sorts of
"Diecast Oldies"
So this image from Phindy's just screamed out to me
"Dad...., this is my dad"
Not only that, but I colored the dog in this image
to resemble the dog he had as a kid.
His dogs name was "Tags"  LOL
I can not wait to give this to my father for his 77th Birthday.

The image is called "Mr. Brown Goes Shopping"
and you can find it over at Phindy's Etsy Shop.
She has many other awesome images there,
and I know you won't be able to resist them!

Thanks for stopping by..  =)
