.... Happy Monday!!! I hope you had a nice weekend. I did some stamping (of course!) and pretty much just relaxed. We went to a BBQ over at my parents', which is always fun, and I got to visit with my relatives. I am SO blessed, I really do have the BEST family evah!!
This little card is for my Uncle' s birthday. I had yet to ink up this cute little typewriter I got from Stamping Bella a little while back, so I thought it would make a perfect guy card. This DP is from a K & Company 4x6 paper pack I picked up at Michael's last week. I grabbed up like 5 or 6 paper packs while I was there (40% off all of them, helllloooo!) cuz' I was gettin' kinda low. Bwha-ha-ha-ha! You believe that, don'tcha?? Anyhoo, this pack and a few others I grabbed, have this great texture to them. It's almost like they're linen. Of course all are double sided, LOVE double sided DP!! Ok, so I stamped "just my type" onto some Classic Crest CS and colored with my Copics. Do you guys remember actually using a manual typewriter??? Hmmmmm??? Yip, me too!! Man, they were hard to type on!! Then came ELECTRIC ones!! Oooooooohhh, boy we thought that was the best thing since BUBBLEGUM!! Now, the old monstrosity sits in the back corner of our office collecting dust. Each time someone tries to toss it, the old gals (like me!) say, whoa, wait a minute, we may need that for something!! He-he!! Old habits die hard!! Ok, back to the card.... So I decided to add a table beneath the typewriter so it wouldn't be floating and stamped the "just wanted to say.." sentiment on the typewriter paper. This set comes with 5 sayings, so it's really a great multipurpose set to add to your collection. I matted the image with SU Basic Black and stitched around the edges. I used a few dimensionals between the individual layers for some depth and tied on this grosgrain stitched ribbon to finish. Ok, be sure to leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Have a GREAT Monday!!
