Consider Yourself Vintage


Happy Friday!  Is everyone ready for the weekend? I'm hoping to get lots of crafty time in since Luis will be working.  I made this card for my uncle's birthday using an image and sentiment from Unity's February 2012 KOM.  His response was, "What is that?  A hearse?  I'm not THAT vintage!!" Hmmm...  not quite the reaction I was looking for but I guess it does kind of look like one huh?  Oh well, even if he wasn't sure about the card he enjoyed the Mexican dinner we put on for him.  :)  


I used the sketch from Less Is More for the card, I'm going to join in with Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop and I'm entering this in the Simon Says Stamp birthday challenge!

I just love those card stamps in the kit! My hubby has a milestone BD this year so I think they will get a workout. OMG, a hearse, really? I love this card.

I love the nestabilities that you used on this! Great look!

Stacy Rogers said...

A hearse! LOL I'm dying here. Well at least he enjoyed dinner. I love the card, masculine cards are always a little tricky.

Maureen Morton said...

This is too funny - I agree with Uncle! I grew up in a mortuary and I thought it was a hearse (in fact, maybe I should get that stamp). Great card and a funny thought. Have a great weekend, kiddo!

Joyce said...

Funny story. I like the card, but I don't know anything about cars. To me, it looked like a cool, vintage car. I guess that's the difference between boys and girls?

Jingle said...

I love this card and the story is too cute! LOL!

Very nice masculine card.

Crystal said...

LOL, such a funny story and great card! I've made a few cards with this stamp and it never even occurred to me to think that it could resemble a hearse.

Ignore your uncle. It's a great card!

Not quite the reaction you were going for, but now that I read it, it does look like a hearse....and my basket-brain is giggling. I would do it on purpose next time ;) that sentiment rocks, btw. Have an awesome time getting crafty!

Linda said...

slimpe cute... I love that stamps.

mtscrapgal said...

That sentiment is perfect for us who are "very mature".At least your uncle liked the dinner.The card was cute. Thanks

I love this card. I need to make my F.I.L. a birthday card and he is into older cars so this would be perfect for him! Thanks for the Inspiration!

Sarah Mailloux said...

I didn't think hearse either. Very well done!

Your card is so cute and I love the sentiment to go with it:) Hugs x x

BloomingPink said...

Oh, I think this is just stunning! STUNNING.

And Teehee on the comment from your uncle. You know, the older you get, the more of those hearses you see! So maybe that's why he made the connection. Go figure.

Jen said...
