because i care..

**Scroll down for my Clear and Simple Day 4 post!  Don't miss my fun Valentines Day project.** 

Happy Saturday! What are you up to today?  Yesterday was my dh's birthday so today is party day!  We are having our friends over for a Crock Pot party.  That could sound fun?  or that could make us sound old.  You pick!  :)  Everyone is going to bring something different in a crock pot from soups or chili's and even dessert.  We have done this before and it has also been a lot of fun.  After it gets dark, we've decided to have s'mores.  I just found these super cute marshmallow skewers on Amazon so I am excited to try them out.  My dh thinks I'm weird.  It's dark, he says.  No one sees them.  He's right.  At least, I will know they are cute.  That is all that matters right?  

Saturday also brings another fun sketch from Retro Sketches.  This one comes from the sweet Kasia.  Have you stopped by her blog?  You should right quick.  She is good.  Her cards are always so fun to see!   HERE is her original card and here is my take....

I instantly saw "cloud border" when I first looked at the sketch.  So if you didn't know, I have some new cloud stuff you should check out HERE.  It's fun!  hehe!  Then I added in some stitch lines with the sewing machine...after I dusted the thing off.  I never use that thing.  Why don't I?  I have no idea.  I really should.  So another fun thing that is making its CSS Debut very soon helped me cut these little rain drops out.  Curious?  I know you are!  Its a super fun die that you much come back to see....tomorrow!  :)  

Check out this week's sketch....

So fun right?  Please play along with us!  I can't wait to see your creations!  Kasia, Arielle, Suzanne and Jen W., all have fun stuff to see over at the Retro Sketches blog!  

So glad you came by today!  My blog is super busy this week and I hope that you find something that makes you smile!  Have a great day!

  2. Laurie, this is the coolest card EVER! You make me want to break out the sewing machine. Too bad it is under a thick pile of dust. :)

  13. This is beautiful. I love the cloud and raindrop scene you created with this sketch. Love the sewing too. I know I have one of those machines somewhere. Your crock pot party sounds like fun! We had a day full of being outside in the rain for my daughter's soccer tournament. It's nice to finally be inside and dry and catching up on all today's blog posts.
