Retro 53

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! The next few days around here should be just gorgeous and we will definitely be seeing serious signs of spring! I am SO looking forward to that! And I certainly wouldn't mind if we saw some spring storms as we could still use a lot more moisture. That may come this weekend. Last night it was so weird talking with our son about his classes for next year. He is really looking forward to moving up and taking classes that will help him achieve High School credit! That is SO cool! I am glad that he has finally embraced what he can get out of school and that he can see how it can help him for his future! Yea!! I think it is going to be a real positive experience.

Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Retro Sketches. I am also enjoying making these cute little shamrocks! I don't own any St. Patrick's Day stamps so I combine the greeting from Teeny Tiny wishes with the shamrocks and come up with something for St. Patrick's Day! And it's super easy!! So on a piece of Very Vanilla I adhered three strips of designer paper from the Print Poetry pack. The ends of these strips are flagged and I used the 3/4" circle punch to round the top right corner. I popped this up onto a card base of Very Vanilla. Then I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in black StazOn and round the top right hand corner with the 3/4" circle punch. Then I used the Fashionable Hearts embosslit to cut three little hearts from Gumball Green card stock. I adhered these with glue dots to the panel and then added a gold brad. I used the Gumball Green marker to make a stem. This panel is then popped up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
