You're Old... embrace it :o)

Good morning everyone and Happy Saturday!

Just a quick post today to show you a birthday card that I made for my Dad... it features a fabulous image from Tim Holtz- Vintage Things Blueprint stamp set! 
I stamped the image with Black StazOn ink onto watercolor paper... I used Faded Jeans & Black Soot Distress inks to watercolor it. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and I used Tim Holtz Postage Stamp die for the base of the card. Added a few black adhesive nail heads and there you have it... a very quick and easy masculine card!

My hubby and I will be spending Easter with family tomorrow, so I can give my Dad his card... I hope he likes it! :)

Have a wonderful Easter and thanks so much for stopping by!

I love this card so much, I just pinned it for a future CASE! :D Your colouring is fabulous, and the sentiment is perfect. Thanks for making us laugh at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

I was on my way to Catch The Bug challenge when your image caught my eye. I had to step on the brakes to look at your card. This phone is called a 202. In the years before this, there was no dial. It had a ringer box that was attached to it. I loved seeing it. I have learned a lot about the telephone coming from a background of phone company workers. Great card. They would love this.

Davi said...

Love it Tammy, this image is too cute and the sentiment make me laugh out loud!! Fab job my friend, have a GREAT week :)

Jane France said...

Brilliant idea to pair the rotary telephone with the "you're old" sentiment! My children stare at me in fascinated horror as I tell them of tales of dial tones. I hope your dad appreciated his card. Thanks for joining us for the Just Kidding challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!
