A Note of Cheer

Hi, guys!  For today, I thought I would share a card I made for my brother.  He needed a card for a friend who is undergoing treatments for an illness.  I wanted to keep it light in feel, and for it to have a masculine look.  After going through my sentiments, I found one that I thought would work.  It reads inside "Feel Better Soon".  I sure hope getting a surprise card in the mail will bring a smile to his friend.   As I was digging through my piles of stamps, I found this old typewriter image from Hero Arts.  I remember being a young girl learning how to type on one of these, and thought maybe this fellow would appreciate this image from the past.  I can't believe I used to type papers on one of these machines!



Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink
Paper: Kaiser, Gina K Designs (Black)
Ink: Versafine Black, Distress Ink
Misc: Clear Embossing Powder

Hope your day is filled with fond memories of the past, and dreams of great things for the future!

I know, a typewriter, really. I was just thinking about that the other day. I am very thankful I learned to type, and very thankful for keyboarding on a computer now. It puts the joy back into typing. On of my jobs when I was in my 20's was issuing license tags in Ohio. Everyone had to get them during one month. I worked there the first year that they were using computer scanned forms. Still had to type the form, and the worst thing was that if you made a mistake you had to start over. Plus you were pushed to be fast. What a nightmare!

This is adorable Winnie. I love the old timey typewriter! Your background paper is the MOST perfect background for this image. Well done.

I learned to type on an actually typewritter and glad that I did, but I'm not sorry to see keyboards come around because typing "carbon" copies was a real pain! I love my delete and backspace keys...LOL

Gah! Winnie, I may have to have you make something for me with this design. I have 75+ year old typewriter. I absolutely adore it. You can't go wrong with words!

I must say I would be surprised to receive the card --not just any card but with a simple but cheerful words written ...
