Hello everyone, Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog has a great challenge this week ...

At first I thought oh yeah a dial phone and then I saw the word Vintage ... and I thought crikey I remember the dial phone and we had one when I was younger and now it is regarded as Vintage ... OMGosh I must be old!  It also bought back fond memories of a situation I was in when my nephew who was then around 8 and I was only 36 and I took him to a 'hands on type museum' and it had a dial phone there so I told him to jump on and ring me on the other phone ... he promply starts to push the numbers and he says it doesn't work and continued to push the numbers ... for a split second I thought that is he stupid or what and then I realised he has never seen a dial phone before :)  I laughed and showed him what to do ... he thought what a stupid phone to have!  Anyway here is the card I made ...
I even made it so that it 'dials' ...

some how giving this to anyone that is under 35 years old might be lost on them!
I would also like to submit this to the Vintage challenge over at Kaboodle Doodles ... albeit a little retro vintage!
materials used - smooth black, red and white cardstock, Bazzill Kraft, Kaisercraft coconut cardstock; Cosmo Cricket 'tea for 2' papers; Paper Smooches alphadot and vogue abode stamps; Versa Color black ink; Creative Memories circle cutters; Carl 10mm circle punch.
Thanks for looking.

lol . . . oh what the younger generation of today think of the vintage or a little bit older days as to gadgets and ways. So much for the modern times and age now.

Lovely and wonderful card! Thanks for joining us at Kaboodle Doodles’ “Vintage” Challenge! Happy 2013!!
