Your Phone's Ringing!

Does your phone ring too much or too little?  Funny how you wish for it to ring less and then when it does it makes you a little sad.  I currently have 7 messages waiting to be heard so I am posting this card really quick to take care of them.

I have to be honest and say I was getting tired of holiday cards.  Honestly, I have made so many and also mailed out a bunch so I needed to move on and try a typical everyday scenario.  I will be back with some altered projects I made for Christmas to share soon.  I had to break up the consistency because I am like that.
Today's retro phone card is filled with some new papers I purchased recently.  The shame!  I was pretty determined to use most of the of the bag but at this rate, not going to happen until 2013.  In fact, I think I am going to give my scrap bag away because I can't remember what collection the papers are from any longer. 
So this card uses the new Head Over Heels paper from lily bee design.  What a cute line!  It was created Julia Stainton.  I have long admired her work and love that she is creating beautiful paper lines.  I used lots of punches on this card.  I was also happy to use my new Copic in warm grey.  I bought the W7.  I used stone grey twine that I curled to make the cord on the phone.  It needed a little more so I added the black pearl for the center of the phone dial.  I remember using these types of phones very well.  My ex MIL was using her dial phone into this decade because she did not like the push button.  She would get frustrated when the answering machine came on and would instruct her to press one to leave a message because she couldn't.  Bless her soul! Funny how things have changed.     :-)
