MORE cards!

Are you sick of my cards yet> I got the new Stamp TV kit, Hello Sunshine, today in the mail. Of course, I had to play right away! I LOVE their cardstock and stamps!!They now offer their stamps in clear too. I got clear this time to try them out. So far, they have worked great except for one sprig of leaves. The ink kinda beaded up like it does on the real cheap clear stamps. It is not noticable unless you lnow about it but next time, I am going back to the rubber! Never had any problems with it at all!
I made these 2 cards for my two grandmothers. One is not doing to well and I thought I'd send her a little cheer.

this is the inside

Here is the one for my other grandma. She is 92 and doing GREAT!

I hope they make them smile!
Thanks for looking. I am off to get these in the mail!

More cute cards!

I have been on a card making roll lately! Probably because I got a bunch of new stamps to play with! These are all made with Unity Stamps. On this one, I made the background paper by stamping the camera all over with Stampin' Up River Rock ink. I cut the camera from Cricut Going Places.

This one is my favorite! The sentiment stamp has a row of hearts under the words. I masked them off with scotch tape because I didn't want them on there. 

Thanks for looking at my cards!!

Fathers Day card for the beer lover

I made this card for my dad. He loves beer! Inside it just says Happy Fathers Day and I am putting in a gift certificate to his favorite "watering hole"
I have had this paper for a while and I thought it was perfect! I used stampin' up punches for the circles and scallops. The mug of beer is a St. Patricks Day Studio G set and the saying  is from PBD Just 4 Men set.

Old memorabiila score!

My boss was cleaning out the attic where I work and and we found some great old stuff! It used to be an appliance store in the late forties and fifties. There was boxes full of old cancelled checks and bills. Every month was wrapped in paper and the contents were wrapped in a rubber band that crumbled when we touched it. That paper was very brittle too.  I took a whole box of things. Here are some pictures of a few items I liked.

check out this add from the bank to order personalized checks!! 200 for $1.40!!
The old checks I found, were not personalized. They had no name on them. Very interesting!!

June 9, 1951 !!!!!
these are bank statements!!!

Check out this newspaper cigarette ad!! You definitely don't see those any more!

Post mark from mail in 1955. It was a very thick envelope and it cost 9 cents!! I have others
that are 3 cents and a 1 cent postcard!!
This is the old box I stuffed with things and brought home.

I am going to have so much fun digging through it all and checking the newspaper for goodies. You have to be so careful, though. They rip very easil!!

I thought some of this stuff would be fun th incorporate in my scrapbook pages and cards.
