Typewriter Challenge at Gingersnap Creations

It's time again for what is probably my favorite of all the Gingersnap Creations Challenges - the Random Redhead Challenge.  This month, in keeping with our "Get to Work" theme, our Random Redhead Theme is Typewriters.  You can use clip art or stamped images of typewriters, maybe a typewriter font, or how about some typewriter keys - faux or real?  We'd love to see how you interpret the challenge.  For my card, I used a typewriter sticker, a typewriter font background stamp (an old Scrapblock from CHF), some type font patterned paper, some vintage text, a distressed Dymo border, and a little typewriter key charm from Tim Holtz.  Is that enough "type" for ya, LOL?  The quote stamp is also from an old CHF set (oh, how I miss that company!).  I added a few tiny attacher staples and a mini paperclip for some added office supply flavor.  I hope you'll be able to join us!  You can check out the rest of the DT's work over on the Gingersnap Creations blog.
