A challenge and oldy moldie Monday

Monday - back to work - after a rainy week end - all I did was e mail all day - I love my e mail but gee - sometimes it takes forever to get caught up. Thank goodness we don't have voice mail - I would never get anything accomplished. The weather is suppose to be sunny the remainder of the week - YEAH - it was chilly today - wore pants and a sweater but it is way too soon to put shoes on - nice sandals completed the ensemble. Tonight pay bills and work on some other things.
Here is my card for tonight. The return of oldie moldie monday - I could do this day for about 10 years every day of the week - I might run out of cardstock but never patterned paper - I would adhesive also. This card was done for the challenge on Caardvarks - the challenge is to use office supplies, career related elements, etc. I wanted to use a vintage image of a typewriter - I do hope a few of you remember what a typewriter is - used staples on the left edge of the card and also on the photo corner on the typewriter image. A small binder clip was added to the memo which has the notebook edge on it.
Paper - Crate Paper
Flower - Kaiser Scrapbooking - coffee dyed so they weren't "so white"
Font - Typewriter
It turned out to be a perfect card for someone who just got a new job. We hand delivered it to her today. She really liked it.
Enjoy your evening.

i just *BOUGHT* an old typewriter at a garage sale, forget how much more EFFORT the keys required than a computer!!! :)

however, mine is neither as old, nor nearly as handsome as the image here...which complements the entire gorgeous card to perfection! BRAVA!!!

You know I love the old and moldy! Really cute card, Barb! Got your comment a while back and have been terrible with the email lately. Been doing a good bit of quilting recently--can you believe it!? All is well with the kids--great teachers and loving school. Ty arrives tomorrow for his R & R! We're so very excited! Will have to catch up better soon. Take care.Anna
