What do you see when you look at this set?

When I see this set… I think retro bowling alley.

But really, it’s one of the most underrated sets in the book.  Many people look at it as a “one-trick pony.”  But really… the text can stand alone without the need for the graphics… or at least not the marquee.

Here is an example of that…

(Pardon the frayed cuts…  it was an old blade)

Not a marquee in sight on this card.  Nor on this one…


This was a card that I made for my son when he graduated from Boot Camp – Also known as Navy Recruit Training.

But, of course… the Marquee helps make a card too!

This card is one that I designed for a Worship Team Dinner for the church musicians.  I was tasked, but a guy, to come up wioth something crafty.  After I created it, I showed the pastor.  He said he’d be happy with just a scribble on the back of a piece of paper.  Geesh… what do these guys know?!?  It’s a good thing they have me to bring crafty into their lives.

Side note…  whenever the pastor needs to me to send out and email or put an announcement in the bulletin… he tells me what he needs then tells me…  “put it in Joanne-ese!”  He means for me to add the fluff that makes it readable by people.  If you haven’t noticed by now, I am pretty good an making things very conversational.  That did not help me with my college papers.. but on a blog or an email… I am good!

Oh sorry.. I got side tracked… here is that card!


I am sure at least half of the 16 couples I sent this too will appreciate it.  Don’t you?

So, what have made with this card?

Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!

🙂  Joanne
