Moxie Fab World: The Value in Vintage


Happy Wednesday chicas! Thought I'd share a quick card I entered into the Value in Vintage challenge over at the Moxie Fab World blog. There are some beautiful card, go check them out here.


I did cheat a bit, I had already made the card for a Paper Crafts call for Vintage Valentine cards, but it didn't get picked up. Thought I might as well enter it in the Value of Vintage challenge, since I did use such yummy vintage goodies on it! I bought the little clock manipulative at an antique store in Waxahachie, along with some other fabby vintage flash cards. I think they were over-priced, but how could a school teacher who loves vintage ephemera resist?! Come on! The button is also vintage and the little chalkboard sticker is from Crafty Secrets.


Okay, gotta get ready for school. Yesterday we had an incident with one little boy who arrived at school in...let's just say...not the best of moods. He was okay the first hour until we went for our restroom break, when he decided to put a pencil in the sink and proceed to overflow it with sudsy water. Here's my favorite part, though...


Me: "Why did you put a pencil in the sink?"

Him: "For no good reason."


Hmmm, you think he's heard or said that before?! It took all my strength not to laugh.


Have a super day! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Recipe
Stamps: All Holidays.
Cardstock: Basic Black, Kraft.
Ink: Staz-On Black.

All I can say is boys will be boys! I have two nephews and man, they are super fast learners, everything sticks and they don't miss a thing!

Was it one one my kids? They've been doing crazy stuff lately.

This card is so pretty. You are so good with vintage stuff.

MEL said...

Wow! This is soooo creative! I like the colors too. Kids say the funniest things, I'm proud of you for not laughing. There have been so many times that I had to laugh in my preschool class. They are just so funny and they don't even know it. Once I asked one of them "what does mommy like to do" his response was "well a lot....that's for sure". Yes he said well not yell....he was 4 at the time. :D
