When my 96-year-old mother-in-law heard what was planned for Aunt Joanie's 90th birthday. . .a birthday card shower, she asked me if I would make a second card and mail it from her. I was only too delighted to do this for her. As I had already accumulated lots of ideas from her son about her hobbies and favorite things throughout her lifetime, I was intrigued by the fact the Aunt Joanie loved root beer floats, and was tickled to be treated with one even to this very day. I thought this would be a fun idea for her second card from Alice.
Again, I went online search for a vintage photo involving root beer floats. I saw numerous ones, but really like this old ad for a soda fountain shop encouraging you to come in for a delicious, creamy, and cool float! From the image, I chose the colors of my paper. I had the black and gold ribbon in my stash and thought it would be great to use, and I was off and running from there. Here is the card that came together as my vintage creation.
This is the little verse that I composed all about root beer floats and the temptation to have one. By the time I finished I think my mouth was watering. . .LOL!
