Thanks for the Inspiration! STS #1, PPA167



Oh that Lesley is at it again!  She has started a new challenge site called Seize the Sketch.  The first sketch is delightful and I just had to play along using the colors from Pals Paper Arts this week. These colors are so tropical and "retro cool" at the same time!

And yes I am old enough to remember when a typewriter like this was modern and kitchen sets came in these cool colors........hmmm so does that make me retro cool?

Not only do I remember those kitchen colors but we had them. Love taking typing in high school too! You did a lot of fussy cutting and it looks great! Love the newsprint stripes. Your card takes me back.....

Linda LOVE how you used the sketch. The strips of newprint look fab!
Yes, me too. I learned on a typewriter that looked like that! AND our kitchen floor, oven, etc. was that cool blue! RETRO ROCKS!

Well if you are retro cool then I certainly am. :) Love your card Linda. I love the way that you used the strips and I love the way that you incorporated the word "you" by using a tag punch.
