Crafts 4 Eternity - Very Vintage

Hello friends and welcome to 2014!! I ushered in the new year with a sweet case of pneumonia! :-( Good ole breathing treatments, inhaler, and antibiotics - good stuff I'm telling you!

But crafting time is also my relaxation time so to take my mind off how rotten I was feeling, I made sure to play along with Crafts 4 Eternity Very Vintage theme! Just for joining in our fun challenge,  you could win 3 free downloads from Stamping All Day!

I have to admit, I'm not very good at Vintage - kinda scares me! LOL But I had some papers that I thought were rather vintage-y (new word) and this great stamp set "Just My Type" by My Favorite Things. I distressed all the edges and sponged on Old Paper Distress Ink. The typewriter was stamped in Pumice Stone Distress Ink on PTI's Fine Linen, then I added a piece of pre-printed paper from the same Prima paper collection. When you unroll it, it says "Memories, I Cherish With You Special Moments to Never Forget".
 I added more DP to the inside and added the sentiment "you're not old, you're vintage"... gotta love that.
Thanks for stopping by; hope you will join us over at Crafts 4 Eternity!

Hugs,

Sorry to hear that you broke the new year in with germs. But, the down time did seem to agree with your creative sparks...you did a great job being very vinteage-y on this one! I really like it and I have this typewriter stamp myself! I hope that the rest of the month goes better for you and yours! Thanks for sharing!
