Hello, my friend...'ve been on my mind.

I'm feeling that way about a few people these days ;), so that's the sentiment I picked from among the several in this cool stamp set from My Favorite Things called Just My Type, which I love even more because it comes with it's own dies!

 We've got another fun sketch for you to play with this week at Sketch Saturday! I'm in awe of Jo coming up with these sketches week after week. And have you noticed that the blog followers have grown to more than 1400? Yowser!

My card features patterned paper from the 5 & Dime collection by October Afternoon, which was perfect for this vintage typewriter image. My mom had an Underwood typewriter that looked very much like this one, and I was fascinated with it. It belies my age to tell you this, but I learned to type on a manual typewriter. I can't even imagine using one any more... not even the old IBM electric typewriters that I spent the early part of my career using. What's next?

Well, I hope what's next is that you'll come and play with us at Sketch Saturday! Be sure to stop by the Sketch Saturday blog to see all the wonderful cards created by this international group of crafters. Bunny Zoe's Crafts is our sponsor this week.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Loved the old typewriters. I had this thing (still do) with buttons that you push...typewriters, cash registers, telephones etc.
By the your card Lisa!
