FWF Friends with Flair Friday: You're Just My Type!


I made this card for my DH... and it takes me back to high school when I had to suffer thru typing course.. we're talking way back like in 1980 when we had manual typewriters! The teacher would paint the keys with nail polish so we wouldn't cheat by looking at the letters! I hated that course although I am glad I learned.. made learning to use a computer much easier. Back in my day, I didn't even see a personal computer until college when I took into to computer science and used some really old computers hooked to a huge mainframe. Boy I feel old!

Anway! Enjoy your hop thru FWF starting at the Unity Blog after 9 am central time.

Card Recipe:
tiny alpha stickers on "paper"
SU card stock
misc dsp
misc ribbon
top note die cut
Unity image and sentiment from KOTM Nov 09
copics and glossy accents on keys
Distress ink in walnut stain on one layer

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to join all the Unity peeps and fans next week for the return of Hip Hop in the SCS forum!

Great card and thanks for the walk down memory lane. My dd always tells me I pound on the laptop keys! Guess it is from learning on those old manuals! Graduated in 1980, can't believe we will have a 30th reunion this year!

Darling card- love the image- hubby went to school when there were ticker tapes....I did not study any computer stuff- in nursing, we still use the same old IV's, syringes and stethescopes!
