It very interesting to think about how just a couple generations ago important news was received by telegram. My card today for the
Color Challenge had me wondering how it felt to get your information this way. I used a collaged image from Oxford Impressions 'Winter Snow' set that contains the telegram as well as the wonderful vintage Christmas tree. I set the tree inside Stampinks Unlimited fabulous shuttered window. Merry Christmas is stamped onto the telegram .
I'm glad for today's technology that keeps us just a touch of the keyboard away from new news...but my Mom won't have any of it though my sibs and I have pleaded for her to get connected. She still wants her news the old fashioned way. And I do respect that, but you'll find me busy texting encouraging notes to my sons or a voice mail to my husband...sweet nothings...I will use what we have to the benefit of my family. And I hope I'll always be willing to learn what's new...so I can keep up!
So this card goes out today to my parents. Some things are just better the old way! How about you?
