Freshly Made Sketches #68

Hello my friends.

Today, I am sharing a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches.  Jen M. created this great sketch:

My card:

Last month. my blog friend, Colleen Dietrich from Dietrich Designs, created a Masculine Christmas Card using pages from a dictionary - she photocopied the page with the definition for "Christmas tree" and used it on her card.  You can see it HERE.   During the Christmas Holidays, I went to a thrift shop, purchased a dictionary for $2.00 and photocopied the page with the definition of "Love" and used it as the background for my card.  I thought it was the perfect paper to go with the typewriter! The image and sentiment is from SU! You're My Type (retired).  I added a small heart with a tiny pearl and some Riding Hood Red ribbon. 

Thanks so much for stopping by,

  2. Great card, Martha! I just love the typewriter. Why, oh why, didn't I buy this stamp set when I had the chance?

  3. I love this card. The papers are perfect to go with the typewriter, and I love the touches of red. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
