Workin' 9 to 5

8/24 (Team Slate, hostess Paige) Workin’ 9 to 5
Heart2Heart Guest Designer Entry for August 24, 2015 - Workin' 9 to 5

When this challenge came up I knew the stamp set I was going to I borrowed the stamp set "Typed Note" from my daughter.  This takes me back in time...learning to type in high school and entering the outside world "Workin' 9 to 5" at the Hilton Hotels in 1961 as a receptionist and typist using a similar typewriter machine...the sound of the keys as they struck the paper is a lasting memory.  There were only a few electric typewriters and they were in a different department so advancement to the Sales Department was a must.  The Secretary's had an IBM Executive Electric Typewriter (which was born in 1941) but only made available to the Hilton Hotels in the 60's.  With computer technology who uses typewriters...and what an improvement for a 9 to 5 job.

Used Colonial White Cardstock for my background design, stamping Pennants with Black Ink and then sponging the colors on each of the designs with a variety of 5 colors, and adhered to Gypsy Cardstock for border.
