a creative mind at work in the deep dark basement

I don't do vintage very well but really wanted to try my hand at it with this stamp set. I thought it went perfect with the background paper I picked. The cream really had to stand out with this card so I chose a bold color-red to make it pop.

As a kid I used to write letters and postcards all the time. I used to write so much my best friend & I would mail each other letters and we lived about 10 doors down from one another and saw each other every day. I don't write as much anymore, which is funny since I make cards to WRITE in!

Hope you enjoy this card and be on the lookout this weekend for an awesome new template from Clear & Simple Stamps along with the unveiling of their new Stamp of the Month! I think the kids are going to love this one!
