Get Well Soon

Way back when they had a vehicle called  the Chevy Corvair Rampside Pickup.  Neat idea right, it could just pull up beside a ramp and unload or pick up as the situation required. I guess it turned out to be a 'clunker'..  Still think it is a good idea though!! This image is one of the vehicles featured  in the Doodle Party 'Classic Clunkers 2' digital stamp set, see here: Love this set ! Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge at  Incy Wincy Designs this week (August 18th,2014)  and the theme is "Things With Wheels'. Hope you can take a peek and  maybe participate. It is a fun theme. I choose to create a get well  card as my stepson just had surgery on his shoulder and is in for a long period of recovery!
