Retro 31

Good morning, Friends! Another week seems to be flying by! Yesterday's basketball game was SO much fun! My husband and I are going to have a lot of fun watching Nick play his school sports! He was so nervous yesterday that he texted me before school was out to say his stomach hurt. I told him it was nerves but he wasn't sure. I did know that there was a bug going around so I wasn't so sure either. But the day ended, he told me he was fine, and he played great!! Actually, the team played great! The other team they faced had four boys that were taller than their teacher/coach!!! They were giants!! But that didn't freak out our boys! They shut those tall kids out and won their game 39-13! We all are so proud! Now he is exhausted but up and ready to go. Their next game is on Thursday. I can't wait!!

Today's card was one that I did a few weeks ago (most of these were done while my computer was in the shop). I thought this was a unique layout so I gave it a try. It is from Retro Sketches - simple and different. I adhered a piece of Orchard Harvest designer paper to a piece of Early Espresso and rounded the one corner with a 1" circle punch. Then I tied a piece of Raspberry Ripple stitched satin ribbon around it. To the back and bottom of this panel I adhered a strip of Raspberry Ripple scallops that was cut with the Tasteful Trim die. I stamped the greeting from Made for You in Raspberry Ripple on a piece of Very Vanilla and adhered it to the back and top of the panel and then the panel is popped up onto a card base of Crumb Cake. Finally, I added a leaf which was cut with the Autumn Accents die from champagne glimmer paper. This is then popped up onto the card.
