Donny Osmond's Socks
If you are old enough, you know what word comes to mind when you hear "Donny Osmond's Socks." If you are too young, you are now asking, "Who is Donny Osmond and do I WANT to know about his socks?" Or you may be wondering, "Is he related to that girl who passed out during Dancing with the Stars?" Why yes, yes he is.
Donny Osmond in his teenage years was a heartthrob for some young girls. He wore PURPLE socks. Why? I have no idea. But all girls between age 8 and 18 knew that Donny Osmond wore purple socks.
That is what came to mind when I saw the Guest Designer Challenge for Clear Dollar Stamps last week. The theme was purple. When I pulled out all my purple papers I could not help but think, "Wow, flash back to the 70's & Donny Osmond's socks!"
I submitted 3 different items. Didn't win the contest, but I had fun making these! I'll just put the pictures today & when I have a chance will do another post with the dorky stories to go along with these items.
Unlike these cards, which probably will look pretty worn out in 30 plus years, look how well this now GRANDFATHER has aged:
Feeling a need to break into, "Puppy Love" or "I'm a little bit Rock & Roll?"
