The in-laws still have a corded telephone. It sits on a ledge in a little window between the hallway and the kitchen. My boys are now just tall enough where they can reach it and think it is the most delightful form of entertainment to call someone (like their papa) and walk around with the body of the phone, twirling the cord between their fingers and cocking their heads to the side to hold the receiver...
If you are following the hop in order, you should have arrived from Julie Ranae Murray's Blog, but if you'd like to start at the beginning or find out more details, please stop by The Craft's Meow Blog.
The focus of my card is that amazing chartreuse telephone, the stamp is found in For My Dad, a retiring set from The Craft's Meow. I stamped it over a background of circles from Retro Foundations (also added some misting!), and finished it with a sentiment from Good Times (note: these two sets are not retiring, but were a great fit with my theme).
My inspiration was the colors from Create's Card Blog Challenge.
Today's Tip: Create a custom background with repetitive stamping and a few flecks of mist in the same color as the ink used on the stamp.
