working 9 til 5

This is the challenge set by DCM:



I would like you to make a card using some thing that you would normally find in an office environment. Such as... staples, paperclips, paper fasteners, file folders, library cards, hole punches, lined paper etc you get the drift.



Here's mine:

Well I've used a tag, paper fastener (brad), string, and the man himself has been getting very confused about the old and the new technology. No wonder he looks so stern!

Stamps : Crafty Individuals, Lakeland Ltd, Paper Artsy

Extras : tag, Prima flower, PM brad, waxy flax, Provocraft paper

A very nice card! The luggage label looks fab.

Thanks for stopping by the blog - don't fret about the PO as the card in question is to be hand delivered!! Don't let the PO stifle your creativity!

Gorgeous card! Love the colors too! :o)

You make very beautiful cards - I looked at all your creations that you've displayed in your blog, great work! Fun to see a 'familiar' stamp too... ;o)

This is a lovely card Ros. I love all the office elements you have used - but in a subtle way so it doesn't scream "made this specially for a dare!"

Paula said...

Fabulous, so love the vintage feel.

Ha - love the idea of the confusion between 'old' and 'new' - the poor man! I like how you used the tag, too.
