Old Typewriter!



Good Morning and I hope the sun is also shining where you are.

Here are a two of  a batch of cards I made two weeks ago to boost my charity box.

The stamps I used were from an old Hero Arts  set that I have had for a number of years that hadn't seen the light of day for several years.  I also used papers from my stash that were bought from QVC when they used to do weekly craft programmes.  They are from a large 12 x 12 pad and I cut the butterflies out from one of the sheets.  I just added a little light grey Promarker to areas of the stamped image.

Thank you for your visit today.

Lovely cards Barb. I still miss those Tuesday afternoon QVC shows - I used to look forward to taking a break with a pot of tea and picking up lots of new ideas. Now there are craft channels on all day, it doesn't seem so much of an occasion

These are great cards suitable for either male or female - I'm old enough to remember old (and very heavy) typewriters!!

Great cards, love the sentiment! Ah the QVC days, staying up till midnight to see the craft launch and speculating on forums about it. I miss those days, not watched QVC for years now. Cara x

Wow, you really highlighted those butterflies like a professional. You could have said they were store bought card toppers and I'd have believed you. Great set of cards.
