heartstring: noun

 the deepest emotions or affections — usually used in plural

As trends go, I don't usually adhere to them as a general rule. I like to do my own thing, sometimes I'm lucky and what I like happens to be a trend. Well, I love cameras, actually retro looking cameras tug at my heartstrings.  I even still have my Brownie camera from the 1960's!! Isn't it cute?



But I prefer to use a high tech digital camera....hmmm...
I am a woman in conflict...
or just fickle.
  Actually I am a retro spirit stuck in a modern world.....or an old person living in the past?

The sentiment was printed on a piece of card stock and laid under the lens opening, then a piece of acetate laid over it and 2 layers of rims with a thin layer of Scrapdots spread between them for a slight lift to finish it off. The wrist strap is a random recycle piece that I tied a knot in it and then glued it between the base card and the cover layer. Camera outlined with a metallic marker. I love this hounds tooth print for a masculine card.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this challenge, I know I'll be checking out every singe submission!

 I'm having a birthday give away to celebrate getting older...ugh!
But it's always more fun if there are presents involved! right?

Well I think this card is really cool. Dont worry about the time warp thing, I love retro and I still have my pops box brownie and love vintage stuff too. There is a fine line to fashion and taste.

Well done with the theme card....

This card is adorable, AND perfect for a man. Sorry, but I've never even seen one of those cameras. It's cute, though.

And if I haven't already mentioned it, happy birthday tomorrow.
