365 Cards - Call Me

Really. Call first. (If you've never seen the Madagascar movies...you won't get the joke! Yes, I have an 8 year old boy, what can I say?!)

The challenge for 365 Cards for today was to use the image of a telephone or the message "call me."

I found this border stamp in my stash (it's a very old Stampin' Up stamp) and it had a telephone on it! I know I have a little girl talking on a phone stamp...or I used to. I think I sold it a while back when I was cleaning out my stash! Which is why I NEVER do that! I always want what I've just sold!!!

Anyway, here is a close up of the border. I added some tiny rhinestones to it. Those are bear to glue on...esp. when you have to wear READING GLASSES to see such tiny stuff! Getting old just stinks!

The paper is We R Memory Keepers from my LSS kit for April. It has one print on the front side and a quad set of prints on the back. Very cool paper, and thick cardstock weight. I love this chocolate and bright pastel set. I added some yummy pink Bazzill and sheer ribbon.

Here you can see the dimension. I love dimension, but it's not so fun to mail it. That is why I never mail out my cards! I just keep them to look at, then when I have a big stack, I donate them to my church!


Thanks for looking today!
