Missin' my favorite Typewriter stamp ...

I remember the 'old days' but probably not further back than electric typewriters!  I was too little to actually use the manual version - but even so, I still love the look ... and I miss this retro typewriter stamp a lot now that it is retired.  So in honor of the old days, I am sharing this card with you today!

 
That's real dictionary paper in the background - I keep a book around just for crafting!  I cut it to size, wadded it up into a ball (yes, I know ... it hurts, but it has to be done!), flattened it out, and inked the edges roughly with a sponge.  Be careful to get it fastened where you want it the first time - it dosn't like to be repositioned!


I changed up the Crumb Cake for So Saffron - I like this look, too!
