Retro Rubber Challenge #8...

It’s Retro Rubber Challenge time!  Challenge #8 is “An Eye for an Eyelet”!  I have so many eyelets and I rarely use them anymore.  I have lots of shaped eyelets – wine glasses, beer glasses, helmets, fish, ribbons, popcorn, forks, and vegies to name a few.  And I have lots of regular ones – in bunches of colors.  I have all of these eyelets and used plain ole black ones for this challenge!

I have had this old truck stamp for ages as it reminds me of an old truck that used to sit on my dad’s farm.  As a kid, my family drove into the mountains to some old timer’s homestead and brought back a 1921 White truck.  I have a scar on my knee to prove that we went on the adventure because I fell of the back of the pickup that was pulling the old truck.  This old truck sat on the farm surrounded by weeds until my mom finally sold it a few years ago.  The guy who bought it thought it had once been used as a Glacier Park tour bus.  Only the bus knows if that is true or not!  It will eventually be reborn as a Yellowstone Park tour bus to be used in parades.  Cool, right? 3 (640x530)

When mom sold the truck, I made some cards up for the gentleman who bought it using this stamp and the colors of his business.  This card is a CASE of the cards I made for him (no picture to share unfortunately!). 4 (640x399)

I stamped the image on vellum and backed it with SU! so saffron paper and attached the two papers together with my eyelets.  I couldn’t decide what sentiment to use, so I didn’t use any.  Just some twine and a button.

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!  Click HERE to go to the Retro Rubber Challenge blog and play along with us.  I bet you have some eyelets that are screaming to be used!

Supplies:  CS: SU! crumbcake, so saffron, and vellum.  Old truck stamp.  SU! linen thread and so saffron button.  Black eyelets.  Memento black ink.
