SoSS Challenge #22 ~ V is for Vintage

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our V is for Vintage Challenge over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Edna's going back to her childhood.  She's on "cloud 9" because this time she gets to drive the family car!  The car is "like crazy; like wow"!  Edna's definitely a "hep" "chick" who's going to "pop the clutch" and "punch it"!  Too bad it's a "tank" and not "souped up". 

Although Edna looks like she's visiting the late 40's - early 50's, my football card is highlighting an earlier era.

I made my card with the ultimate vintage card stock ~ Graphic 45.  The collection I used is Good Ol' Sports...I won it at a scrapbook convention!  No need for any stamping on the front of the card. 

I forgot to take a photo of the inside before I gave it to a friend who wants it for her husband.  Here's what she asked for the sentiment:  "Too bad you can't make touchdowns anymore, you old fart!  Have a Happy Birthday anyway!"

Since my vintage card is about football, I added some photos of my dad's older cousin, Al Beitzinger.  He played for the Marquette University Football Team in the late 1930's.

Make sure to visit our "radioactive" Design Team.  We're a "tight group and not at all "square".  Hope you're all "cranked" about our V is for Vintage Challenge.
