That 70's show

If you are as old as I am you didn't watch the 70's show...you LIVED IT! My boys used to watch it, but when I was their age I watched Happy Days. One day I showed them a pic of my high school graduation and they HOWLED!!!!....they took a look at one guy and said..."It's Fez!"...Now, I'll admit, I've never watched the 70's show myself...as they say..been there, done that! However, when Emily came out with the daisy fridge and oven I couldn't help but recall those 70's days!

Fortunately we did NOT have avacado appliances in our house, but ....don't laugh.... i have an avacado fridge in my basement. How do you think I got the color so perfect..LOL! Honestly, I did NOT buy it, it was given to us to use as a second fridge about 15+ years ago and the price was right so we took it! I keep hoping it will konk out one day but the darn thing just keeps on tickin'.

That avacado fridge was the inspiration for my card today along with some nice retro papers from the Basic Grey offbeat collection. I even used more than one patterned paper on my card just to accentuate that 70's look! It was hard for me, but I did it in honor of my '78 high school graduation class! The entire card was colored with copics and the little dots are also from Stamping Bella.


Don't forget about Bellarific Friday. This is your inspiration and if you haven't got your card to Emily yet, there is still time! Email you submission to her by 5pm Thursday to get a chance to win bella bucks. AND if you haven't commented on the Ketto's yet you can do that here for you chance at $50 bella bucks!!!!!!

This card is great. I, too, grew up in the 70's. At one time we had an avocado green fridge and another time it was golden yellow. I guess yellow because it matched the yellow shag carpet. Yikes!
