Old School - CYS

Hello my friends and Happy FRIDAY! I hope you have been having a good week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am. It's been kind of a stressful week here. As far as school goes and getting my genealogy business going, I've been working on my webpage trying to get it ready to launch. Not a lot on it yet, but I want to make sure it looks good and will attract the clients. To make matters even more fun, my email got hacked yesterday and I had all kinds of friends and acquaintances calling me about it. It was a phishing scam where someone was trying to get people to send them money. Luckily, as far as I know, it didn't work. My friends were all too smart to get caught up in that scam, but I had plenty of phone calls from people wanting to know what it was all about. That led to having to change my password on my computer and then on my phone. I still haven't been able to get my phone emails to work the way they used to and the provider support was not much support after all. I'm still working on that and hope that I can get it back in working condition soon.

Now, on to the card of the day. This is one that I did for the Challenge Your Stash group on Splitcoast Stampers. Each month we are given a theme to use and then we each make a card using our own stash supplies - no buying anything new to make this card. It all comes just from our stash. This month our hostess was Jen (jennifrann on SCS) and the theme she gave us was Old School" - old school techniques or supplies and/or images that remind you of the old days. This set I found in one of my stamp drawers from Graphic 45 that I purchased ages ago I thought was perfect.

Materials Used:
  • Image and Sentiment - Graphic 45 Primer 2
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Kraft and Very Vanilla
  • Ephemera - October Afternoon  
  • Copic Markers - B01, B04; E00, E01, E02, E21, E23, E40; E53; R05, Y13, Y18, YR02, YR07
 I'm thinking this could make a cute child's birthday card or just a thinking of you card.

I am submitting this card for the following challenges:

Colour Crazy Craft - Anything Goes
QKR Stampede - Anything Goes
Krafty Chicks - All Occasion
Lavinia World - Anything Goes
Southern Girls - Anything Goes
Thru the Purple Haze - Anything Goes


  1. Oh Maggie, this is soooo cute! Adorable kids; great card!

  2. What a wonderful card Maggie - love it
    Sorry to hear you were hacked - how frustrating that you phone is no longer sync'ed to your computer

  3. This is just perfect, Maggie, and it's so cute! Takes me back, even though maybe just a little bit before my youngest days. Not much, though. I have some of those primers. BTW, I got one of those emails from "you". Not the first time I've received an email like that, so I knew it was junk. Sorry for the troubles it caused you. I can't wait to see your website when it's up. Be sure and let us know!

  4. I really LOVE this card- the images are darling, and you really created a beautiful card- love the kids sitting on the hot air balloon!

  5. Cute card. Love the vintage feel of the images and so glad you shared over at Colour Crazy challenge.

  6. So sweet- love the old school blocks. Thank for sharing your card with us at Lavinia World Challenges. Vicki- DT

  7. What a pretty Graphic 45 card you have made. Sorry to hear about your scamming incident. Don't get me started what I think of people doing things like that. Thank you for taking part and best wishes in the draw. Kym (Colour Crazy Challenge Design Team Member).
