Old School Cool

Happy Saturday everyone!

There has been a lot of high temperatures going on around here, and normal for Austin, but my friends and family in the "Great White North" have been experiencing lots of the same. Unusual for them and not all have air conditioned homes like here in the south.  They have been using these "old school" wonders.
  I was inspired by this darling card from Meghan on her Little Pink Bikes blog and I made a few of my own version to mail up north.

I popped up the blades for a 3D effect just like Meghan (thank you)
I used a Hero Arts sentiment (perfect for this situation), dollar stamp fan image from Michaels and a Basic Grey popsicle image.  The paper is SEI.
Stay Cool folks!  It's about 95 here right now!

  1. So clever! Brings back childhood memories of summer, before ANYONE had air conditioning... I really like how you made the fan so dimensional, and the chevrons suggest moving air (or air that you WISH was moving!). Your family "up north" will appreciate them, for sure!

  2. This card makes me happy...Reminds me of my first apartment in NYC and the old school fan I had! I think I have this same stamp from Michael's, too:)

    Thanks for leaving me a comment on my blog!
