Old School

The challenge today at 365 Cards is to make a card that has veggies on it. I did not have any veggie stamps, but I did find this super cute border stamp with garden stakes...with veggies on them! Now, this is where Old School comes in. This stamp is OLD, very old, from Stampin' Up. The copyright says 1996, but I am sure it is older than that. The red and white checked paper is even older - from Close to My Heart...perhaps from when they were still called Dots! Yep! Old School.

I know that my veggie image is not large or the central image on the card, but I did use veggies! And I really loved pulling out this old stamp set and giving it some love.


I printed the sentiment from the computer. I think I'm so clever to think that up! LOL Here is a closeup of the image.

And another.

Thanks for looking today! I know I'm way late getting this up, but better late than never!
