Texting it!


Oh, yes, when I grew up we didn't have cell phones, we sent post cards if we wanted to use text. My sons think that I'm ancient :)

So join us at Sweet Stampin' and show us some text or script. We're being sponsored by Ribbon girl, please check our blog for all the details and to see the talented teams fantastic cards. There's lots of inspiration!!!

  7. Oh yes, I remember postcards when we went on vacation. You always sent 'scenic postcards' to family & friends. This is so vintage and lovely. The crochet flower with the pearl center is a lovely touch to an already gorgeous card. And this will be enjoyed many times longer than any text message ever would be! TFS

  8. Beautiful vintage card Maarit, I love your little crochet flower embellishment and the lovely soft shades.
    I thinks it's a pity that texting and emails have taken over sending cards and letters, as Mary points out, you don't keep these as you would letters and postcards, Kate x

  12. Dearest Maarit, this is so gorgeous! I, like yourself, grew up without cell phones, and when I went to school there were typewriters, no computers. :) Your blog and this post are beautiful, thank you so much for sharing.

  17. This is so pretty and quaint. And I know what you mean about cell phones. Kids just don't understand living without them, but I must say, sometimes they are so convenient, like when I had a flat tire the other night. What did we use to do without them?
