Farewell Typewriter ...

Pin It

Happy Tuesday, hoarding paper-crafters ... hope you're having a fantastical day!

Today's card project was created for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge. This week, the theme is "Song Title."

Lately I've been listening to hours and hours of alternative rock and have managed to get the song, "Farewell Typewriter" by The Posies, stuck in my head. I hate it when that happens. I thought using the song in a challenge would purge it from my brain ... plus I'd get to use my vintage typewriter stamp ... which is nearly identical to MY vintage typewriter. Well, I did use the stamp but the song is still looping over and over in my head. Oh, well ...

The card also qualifies for the CAS-Fridays "Penguin Suit" Challenge, to use black and white in a card. For a complete list of challenges, lookie below.

Finally, I'm entering this card into Lisa Somerville's Bloggers Challenge, "Elements of Time."

For all of the rockin' product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me ... you rock!
