Thank You!

Hey there friends! I'm happy to be popping in today to share a new Retro Sketch!! I loved the sketch--it was based off a cute card of Arielle's here!

So, here is the sketch!

And here is my card! I pulled out some bright and shiney today...it's WAY dark and rainy and I need a little pick me up!:) (A little Raspberry Fizz always make me feel better!!)
I used my Altenew painted flowers...oh how I love them!! I also used Altenew Label Love--my label was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, then quickly sprinkled with clear embossing poweder and heat set so it is shiney in real life!! I have a little wad of silver thread...some white and sliver sequins. I added a strip of washi...clap your hands!! I have several rolls of washi, but have a hard time using it!! I was excited to use a few inches today!!

Thanks a load for stopping by!! Hope your Saturday is wonderful!! Take care and I can't wait to see your take on the sketch!!

Merry Christmas

Hey there friends!! I am excited to be participating in the Be Inspired Challenge today!! Today is the third week of challenge #59. Isn't that a fun photo!? I had a little something start in my head when I saw all of those colors!! I got a large shipment of sequins, and after sorting them all into their proper new home, there were some left on my desk, just a few of several colors...sequins are sure static!! So, When I saw this colorful image again, I had to do something with the sequins!!


 
SO, here is my card that I made for the challenge!! I made a window--it is window sheet on both sides, it just looked better and the sequins moved better that way!! The window sheet has been stamped with white Stazon ink, with the Winter Butterflies snowflakes! I had forgotten how much fun it is to stamp on a window sheet....I love the look! The mix that I filled the shaker with is now my "party mix"...as my girls named it. A great grouping of fun colors!! The sentiment is from Making Holidays Bright stamp set.
Here is a little close up of the window...and the pretty colors of sequins!!:) 
Thanks a bundle for stopping by friends!! Take care and see you soon!!

Today I'm sharing a fun TAWS card...using on the of the new sets for the month! Tea Par-tea, is so much fun! My girls think it is super fun...we may have a tea party in our near future!!


I used some fun paper from AC...it made my heart super happy! Don't you love when paper does that for you!? It's the little things people!!;) I colored the tea cup with copics, added some wink of stella and glossy accents to make it shimmer!! I added a splash of gold thread...just a little something!!

Thank you!

Hey there friends! Happy Saturday again!! I'm popping in with my second post for today! My TAWS post you can find here.
 
Saturday means time for a new Retro Sketch! This week, the sketch was based on a card of Tracey's here. It's quite a fun one!! Here is the sketch
 
And here is my card!

I used the circle scribbles dies from PTI for this one. I cut them out and then dusted them with some beautiful Martha Stewart white gold glitter...YUM! Oh, they are super sparkly and shiny in real life...My sentiment is from PTI as well. Here is a little close up...a little easier to see their shine!!

 I hope you will have a chance to play along with the Retro Sketch this week!! I love seeing the great things you all come up with!! Take care and see you soon!!

Merry Christmas

Happy Saturday friends!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! We are sure thankful for the SUN today!! We've hit the "cold weather" status here in the PNW! Clear as clear can be, no cloud can be seen, and then BOOM 32 degrees!! Soccer in 32 degrees at 9:00 am in the morning means we only have two more games...my daughter (and me) are ready for the season to be over!!!
 
I've got another holiday card to share today! I used the great snowflakes from Winters Butterflies...I love the different flakes, they are so pretty!! My sentiment is from the Making Holidays Bright.
 
I used painters tape to mask off some stripes, and then used distress inks to make my pretty teal stripes. I inked my flakes with versamark and then embossed them with silver embossing powder. I added a bit of silver thread...and a few clear sequins.
 
I am loving our break from the rain, I'll take crystal clear sky and freezing weather over dark rainy weather every day of the week...maybe I was inspired by the frost we are seeing every morning...? I love this time of year!! Now, off to finish up my second post for today! I have the new Retro Sketch coming up next!!

Thanks!!

Hey, Good morning! Hope you are doing well!! I am happy to be popping in today! I've got some fun new stamps to share!! This fun background is the new Line upon Line stamp from TAWS! Isn't it a fun background!?

I used a bit of "rock 'n roll" technique on my background, so there is a little bit of orange/yellow for the perfect fall colors! My feathers are from the Tickle Me Happy set...oh, how I love that set!!
 
I gotta hustle out of here...thanks for stopping by friends!!!

Thank you so much!!

Hey there friends!! Happy Saturday! We have a beautiful sunny day--not warm at all--but we will take the sun as often as we can get it here in the PNW!! I am popping in to share this weeks new Retro Sketch! It is based off a old card of mine, you can find it here. I just noticed the date on my card post, it was in 2011!!
 
So, here is the Retro Sketch,

And here is my new card, based on the sketch!

 
I pulled out some fun Pebbles pockets that I found a few weeks ago...and this card is helping me with my goal this month to mail 30 thank you cards out!! I've got so many people to be thankful for and so many people that do so much for me...so I decided this is a good month to show them how much I appreciate it!! I'm doing well...got a load ready to get into the mailbox Monday!!
 
Thanks for stopping by! Come play with us at Retro Sketches...it's always so fun to see what everyone does with the sketch!!
