A Passion For Papertrey Challenge-Fontabulous!

Hello again, Papertrey Friends!

I had SO much fun making the card for this challenge!  I pulled out a TON of different stamp sets to play with and in the process ran across the cork letters I had die cut for another project but didn't use.   I think I was smiling as I pressed each stamp to the card stock. I may make a few more of these.



Did you ever see the movie "Crazy People"?  There is a character who only says "hello" or some form of the greeting.  The movie is about a Madison Avenue advertising executive who ends up depressed and in an asylum because he is tired of lying to the world in order to sell products.  While in the facility, he meets all of these crazy people who become his friends and very successful business partners in the advertising business.  Dudley Moore and Daryll Hannah star in this funny 1980's movie, but the crazy people are the real stars.  It is worth the search if you can rent it somewhere.  Just be prepared for the off-color humor so typical of the insanely naive!  Not one to watch with your children....

Thanks for stopping by,
Suzanne

  1. This is just so super fun. I love it, and I can imagine the mess your craft room was in after you pulled out all these sets. Totally worth it, though.

  6. Sounds like a great movie! I just love 80's movies. This card is so cool. I wish I had that many sentiment sets, let alone just for hello! (Lol).

    I love this card, it would be great as a gift set if you did multiples.
