Hello!

I don't know what happened to last week! I had an entry ready for the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World but somehow I must have lost track of days )-: - Though I guess that is the good part of being off work, right? Well, it was a birthday card so I'll probably show here it quite soon.

Anyway, this week I'm posting my Tuesday trigger card as fast as I could (-:!






I was inspired by the colors of the keys and my first plan was to make a clean and simple card with just the hello words in the key colors - but being me - I never really like my own CAS cards so I added the typewriter and suddenly I liked it much better (-:

I'm also entering this for the Freestyle challenge at A blog named Hero and the What do you say challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show

Ps. If you have this Hero Arts Typewriter stamp I have made a lot of messages to go with it. If you want to use them you can download them HERE.


Supplies;
Stamps; Hero Arts CL483
Patterned Papers; K and Co
Inks; Distress and Versa Mark

I love the way you inked up the 'hello's - so cool :) And I lose track of days all the time - especially when it comes to 'must upload that card by this time' :)

Oh Karin, this is such a fun card and you have inspired me to 'get going' on my TT entry this week also!
I know exactly what you mean about the weeks flying by, didn't get my card posted either :(
BTW, I was about to ask if the typewriter was a stamp or not, I don't have it, but I sure do like it :)

Karin, what a sweet and generous gift to share the little pages for the typewriter! I have just printed the page and will use one of the images you created for my card.
I LOVE your card, great idea to stagger the hellos in different colors-

Thanks for the inspiration and the PDF!
