Twisted Card #058 LAUGH & Happy Mother's Day!

It's time for Twisted Card Sketch #058 with "laugh" as the twist. I have always loved the inspirational phrase, "To Live, Love, Laugh & Dream." Mother's Day is upon us as well, so I decided to incorporate the twist into the card I created for my dear mom.

I used lots of different products to create this card. Here is a comprehensive list of all the goods...The Girls' Paperie: Jubilee Striped Paper & Sticker Market Alphas, Kitch Flower Market Crepe Papers; Making Memories: Hudson Aquamarine Rub-ons; American Crafts: Mini Marks Wedding Rub-ons; Prima Red Polka Dot Transparency; Echo Park: Everybody Loves Christmas scalloped sticker; Jenni Bowlin: Reverse Red Alpha Stickers; Lil Davis Designs: Love Bottle Caps; ColorBox Ice Blue Chalk Ink; In Stitchz Edgy Borders; CTMH: Over the Rainbow Stamp Set & Breeze Ink, as well as kraft cardstock, white embroidery floss and pinking shears. Whew, what a long list!

For the inside, I decided to create my sentiment using my "new" vintage typewriter! It is one of my wonderful birthday presents. Isn't the color absolutely fabulous! I could just sit and stare at it for hours. It took me awhile as it is a totally manual typewriter from the early 1950's. Man, talk about spoiled! We really take for granted how easy it is to type using a computer keyboard. I kept looking for a return key...but there isn't one! You have to pull the silver lever on the left to get to the next line! I don't know about all of you, but I learned to type on an electric typewriter as a child. My goodness how things have changed!

Please be sure to stop by http://www.twistedsketches.com/ to see the actual sketch and all the other beautiful cards the other Twisted Sisters created.

Well, I need to start getting ready for our Mother's Day festivities. I wish all of you fabulous women out there a fabulous Mother's Day. :) Be sure to share the love with your babies, old or young and take it easy...you deserve it!

Love, Amy

I can't decide what I love more- the FABULOUS card with that luscious crepe paper and bottle cap or the TYPE WRITER!!! LOVE LOVE LOOOVE!
I nearly fell off my chair when you said that you kept looking for a return key- too funny. If I had received that as a present I would sit and stare at it forever too Happy Mother's Day. If you have a moment try to return to my blog and guess what I used in my Xoxo layout- I'm giving away a prize on the 10th. :) There's a link on the page you already visited. HUGS- you make the mist wonderful cards! I hope someone gives you an equally fantastic one tomorrow.
