Happy Tuesday, peeps! Feels like Monday, or Sunday or some other day, to me! Having a Monday holiday is fun but it sure messes up your internal clock! Anyhoo, it’s time for the ColourQ challenge, and here is the fun inspiration Arielle has come up with for this week:
What a fun purse! I had a bunch of ideas spinning around in my head! In fact…see that turquoise typewriter on the front? I HAVE ONE OF THOSE!!! In fact, my sister Gail just sold one at her store, Charleston Fynd!!! I was going to let her sell mine too but she encouraged me to find a ribbon for it and keep it….she said every kid that came into her store made a beeline for the typewriter!!! Vintage is in! So I went sort of literal for my “vintage” card too:
Oh, I had fun making this card although it took an inordinate amount of time! I played with old images, new “old” images, new papers, dry embossing, heat embossing, and best of all….I was able to download a free “typewriter” font to make my typewriter key-style letters in MDS! Woohoo! I was excited that I could print them on a Real Red background in white, and then just punch out the letters! And since the purse had so many random patterns, I used my own Paper Players sketch from this week’s challenge!!!
Anyone remember what that little doodad is? Sure ya do! (If you don’t, email me and I’ll tell you!) I was also able to use a little diecut I’ve been saving from my friend Linda, on which I embossed a retired SU sentiment:
The birthday sentiments inside and out are also computer-generated!!! I am saving this for one of my “vintage” friends!
Now…..what inspires you in this photo? I hope you will play along with us over at the ColourQ blog and be sure to check out what the other designers made with these bold colors and retro graphics! Can’t wait to see it! And if you have any questions about anything I used here, please send me an email! Don’t leave your question in the comment box because I can’t always answer it there!
Dana & friends went to the train musem near the Strasburg Railroad this weekend…..Cassidy did NOT want to smile for the camera!
Cracks me up!
