You're My Type Card for A La Card Monkey Sketch #98

Wow that was one fast week!! I am happy to see Happiness is the theme over at A La Card Monkey... I did a Kindness card, thats happiness right?? I thought that I was following the sketch when I was making the card and watching TV, but now I see it kinda goes with the sketch...LOL

I wanted to make something fast so  I thought that if I used a stamp that I did not have to color in I would get to bed early.... lol I am still up!! I think part of my problem is that I watch to much TV while making a card. It's all those crime shows I can't stop looking long enough to get a card done!!

Ahhhhh how cute is those baby Otters!! I found this photo on Pinterest. How many of you are hooked on Pinterest!!!?? 

I stamped the Kindness stamp then cut the words and put them on the type writer paper. I also cut a black framelit the same size of the vanilla and cut it in half and put it behind the main image.

This is fabulous! I love the First Edition and the Framed Tulips Border together, they set off your focal point typewriter so well. Awesome, awesome, awesome! Smiles, Ebeth

Hey Goober! I like how you used a long phrase to make a 3-deck statement in the typewriter. That's cute. I love the monochromatic look, along with the great embossing and bling too!

Your card looks so great. I love the typewriter and the first edition paper looks so great with it.

Hugs, Uta

Great card, love the lack of color. I usually have to listen to music or a book on tape while crafting - because I'd be in front of the TV too much as well.
