Oldie ;)

Today was a windy day here in MTL.  Perfect for lunch out on the deck... but not so much for pool time.  But that's it... so a great day to craft!!!!  YAY!  Got 4 cards done this afternoon.  2 for DT work and 2 just for the fun of it.  Just wish I had more days off!  I get so much done with 3 days!  Crafting as well as housecleaning and time with the kids.

So the card I'm showing you now is obviously not for a DT... you will just have to wait for those.  It's a freebie that I found through a fellow DT at Tammy scrapin corner.  They had done a card for the challenge over at Birdie Brown using the freebie phone 01 that is provided (there's 2 that you can choose from).  And that freebie got us DT talking so much about the old phones... not sure I want to admit to this but I remember those....  I'm not going to say my age however lol.  I'll hide behind the fact that I was living in the country side ;))))

I just had the most fantastic paper for this card!  And ribbon as well!  The paper is from October Afternoon (Modern Homemaker) it's all retro feel paper.  So I thought this paper with the retro add as well as the red plaid paper.  The other paper is from my cut out stash...  I added some Robin Dew nest drops in silver (telling you I'm totally addicted to them!) and the sentiment I thought was great for this but I don't remember where it's from... sorry...  The ribbon is  Seam Binding from JP Coats my dad found it at a garage sale!  Thanks soooo much dad!  Just love those wonderful gifts that he brings me ;)))   

I followed this sketch:
I thought it was just perfect for this card!  It really felt retro to me.

I'm going to be back again with my next card ;)  I still have one creation to show you.  I want to say a big welcome to my newest follower Norma!  Big Hello ;)))  So happy to see new faces!  Now reached a wooping 60 ;)
