CPS 226 - Friend To Friend

I was sitting in church today missing my friend, Anita.  She and her husband moved to the East Coast a few weeks ago.  Now we've texted back and forth a few times, but still, we'd usually chat on Sunday mornings, and today I just missed that, and her.

When I saw the CPS sketch this morning, I thought a keep in touch sort of card felt in order.

I used my new Established Elegance (SU! 2011-20112 IBC).  I loved the vintage typewriter image from when I first saw it.

I used Newsprint DSP for the background layer and stamped the typewriter repeatedly to make a piece of my own patterned paper.

I sponged everything with Basic Gray ink to age it a little and tied it all up with cherry cobbler twine.

Inside I continued the theme with a narrow strip of the Newsprint DSP and Basic Black card stock.

Thanks for stopping by!
