I am posting two views of this card today so you can get a better look at the silver embossing and the hint of pink in the balloons. I loved both the sketch and the photo this week at Fusion and used the colors from the picture and the sketch. Wish I had a stamped image of that phone!
I remember when a long distance phone call was a wonderful way to send smiles across the miles. It was a very big deal to talk to our relatives in California.....always after 9 pm when the rates dropped. My dad would set the stove timer to keep the conversation short since every minute cost $$$! And the first half of the conversation usually sounded like this -
"Can you hear me?"
"What time is it there"
"What's the weather there?"
And the calls usually ended with -
"I'll tell you more about it when I write!"
Yes long discussions were saved for the letters. My aunt in California and my dad (her brother) argued endlessly about politics - all in letters. I wish I had saved them!
Hope you play along at Fusion!
My friend Roseanne drew up a great Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week! I did metallic...free...stripes....
