Steampunk Birthday Card + Freebie!

Hello everyone! It's Thursday again! Amazing how fast it comes around each week. I am super excited to share with you this card that I made today. First of all, I'm excited because Lindsay has released a new set called Steampunk Stamps. At first I was thinking, what am I going to use these for? Then I started seeing endless possibilities behind these simple and totally cool vintage images. I can't wait to use a few more of them! If I'd had time today, I probably would have made 3 or 4 cards!

Another reason to get excited, Lindsay's birthday!! Everything in her store is 34% off to honor Lindsay's 34th birthday tomorrow through Saturday!


So I used the vintage typewriter image. I knew exactly who I was making my card for the minute I saw it. Our preacher at church has a facination with old typewriters. He even has a tie pin made from a 1932 typewriter (couldn't tell you the brand). His birthday will be coming up soon, so I made him this card.
I used the sketch at 2 Sketches 4 U this week. Another reason I was excited was because of the genius (ok I'm not conceited) sentiment that I came up to go along with it! I usually have to copy other people's sentiments, because I can't think of my own, but I love this one!


Don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog to check out the DT's work and grab a freebie!

Now for your Thursday Freebie!
