Old School


The desk cleaning project that I began yesterday got a little out of hand and I spent most of today trying to get it under control - hence why this post is so last minute!  Today's card is super clean and simple and made for 3 challenges - CASual Fridays' Chip Off the Old Block challenge, Young Crafters Unite's clean and simple challenge and the chipboard challenge at Lily Pad Cards.  I used to love to play Atari!  As impressive as some of today's games are sometimes I wouldn't mind a simple round of Asteroids or Centipede!  :)
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) PTI, (Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Sentiment from My Type ) Hero Arts
Inks:  (Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Chipboard:  (From The Boyfriend collection) Cosmo Cricket

Awesome retro card Jen! Love the sentiment stripes! I'm having Atari flashbacks... pacman, frogger, space invaders!

This cute graphic card made me smile. I'm so old school that I don't even know what Atari is! In the 1950's we had jump ropes and hop scotch. Ha! Love this.

Lindsey said...

Such fun, Jen! Great colours and I love that good ol' joystick! Of course, the great thing about the internet, you can always find Centipede or Asteroids somewhere!
