Today I am featuring another Flora & Fauna stamp set, Driving To The Holidays. I grew up with a VW always in my family’s driveway so I couldn’t resist the cute Volkswagon and all its accessories. With 10 kids in the family, my father thought this was the best car ever! It was easy on gas and you couldn’t go too fast!
