Gee Thanks Son
Him (looking over my shoulder after coming in from playing): Hey, that looks like a piece of notebook paper.
Me (looking at him, pleased that he recognized my project): It is supposed to.
Him (a thoughtful look on his face): Except, there are two lines going down instead of one. And there are five holes instead of three.
Me (still smiling that he is interested in my project): It's called vintage, this is the kind that I used to have in school.
Him (with a big grin from recognition now): Oh, you must be old then.
Me (slightly disgusted and heartbroken): Gee, thanks, son.
Market Street Stamps is having a block party and I joined in on the fun with a clean and simple creation. I stamped Vintage Notepad onto a natural cardstock panel, rounded the corners and punched the sides and distressed the edges to resemble a torn page. So easy to do! The chipboard heart was stamped as well with the background stamp, this time in the corresponding red from the notebook paper, and I finished the panel with a handwritten sentiment. (I went round and round with a sentiment and finally decided on this one but now I think I need to make fifteen more cards with the others that I had in mind!) It was adhered to a kraft base with foam adhesive and I added the paperclip, well, just because I thought it looked cool.
Off now to get a lot of things done today...
