     I've never taken a selfie in my life and have no idea how to use the camera function "thingy" on my smart phone.  My phone is used as a PHONE, nothing else!  Yeah, call me old fashioned but it's annoying to have to carry around a cell phone and have everyone in my family, near and far, expect me to answer instantly.  Can you believe they actually get panicky if they call and I don't answer?   What ever happened to good old "I'm-away-from-home, call-back-later." ???

     However, since all my grandkids are really into smart phones and all the apps they have, I decided this would be a perfect card to remind a couple of grandsons that updated photos would be greatly appreciated.  I think the last ones I had from them are at least 10 years old so I'm even willing to settle for a couple of selfies.  :-D

     I colored this Fabrika Fantasy image with my favorite ProMarkers and then cut the image with a plain, square die from Spellbinders.  I distressed the edges with one blade of my scissors, then added the sentiment and tied it with navy blue twine.

     I cut periwinkle CS, also distressed on the edges, and then added everything to the card base.  I needed it very CAS since this masculine card is being mailed.

  2. LoL - I know exactly what you mean about the phones. Bring back the old days when they couldn't find/bother us when we were out !!!! I was always safe... they just had to wait for me to come home :-D
    Never taken a 'selfie' either although my Daughter gave me one of those new- fangled Fones for my 60th birthday hahahaha :-)
