You're just my type!

Hello! I hope you guys are doing well! Today I am sharing a Just My Type card with you. I personally love when I can use my sets together. It is just fun to mix and match! Well, I think this set goes so well with Papertrey Ink's Text Style. It's a perfect fit and a good way to "guy -up" the card a little ;). I stamped the text background builder in Vintage Photo Distress Ink, but I made sure not to ink it all of the way so it would look more distressed. Then I used my ink applicator tool with foam to ink up the edges.
I stamped my typewriter on a piece of white card stock and colored it with Copics. Then I distressed the typewriter's paper with some antique linen to go along with the background I created. I then stamped the typewriter on the card base, cut out my colored type writer and adhered it over with foam adhesive. As for those extra "off the edge" typewriter keys, I just like to leave them flat on the card base. I saw some of the DT members use glossy accents or gems on the keys to pop them up. That looks really cool also!
Okay, so I had to include this totally dorky picture. I just bought the Totally Rad Actions by the Boutwells. They are a blast. I haven't had much time to actually learn to use them, but I had fun making my photo look all old timey. Hehe!

Here is another photo I did. I am obviously no expert, but I thought it was fun!

  17. am i able to take a car insurance provider to small claims court? The insurance business rejected my claim, (I would take the to blame driver to small claims though I have no address to serve them or send a demand letter). And the second driver was at fault however their insurance company says there may be a difference in this claims so that they have to use the word of their insured vs. my word. There's no doubt that they acted in awful faith and did not perform a proper investigation would this certainly be a valid claim in small claims court? I want to accept the at fault drivers insurance carrier (not my own) to small claims for that damages to my car.

  19. I needed to write you that little bit of remark to finally say thanks a lot again for these stunning guidelines you have shown in this article. It's really extremely generous of people like you to deliver unreservedly all a few individuals might have distributed as an e book to help make some cash on their own, especially since you might have done it if you wanted. These strategies also acted to be the easy way to be certain that many people have similar dream really like my personal own to learn a good deal more when it comes to this problem. I am sure there are numerous more pleasant times up front for people who looked over your forum post.
