Learning to sail...

Have I said lately how much I love Verve?  Their sentiments are what get me every time!  I've said it before, but I always look for new and fun fonts and they definitely have lots of those.  I made this card today for Retro Sketches.  This sentiment comes from Surely Goodness.  I took the sketch and tipped it over and I think it turned out kinda fun!  I have missed RS!  I haven't played for the last 2 weeks since I was on vacation!  Here is my card...

I am all about stamping with white ink right now!  I got the most AMAZING white ink from WPlus9.  It looks great on black card stock!  I added in a couple of banners and then a button and bow to stay true to the sketch.  Here is this week's sketch...


Or in my case... :)


Stop by the Retro Sketches blog to see what Arielle, Kasia and April's new headliner, Deanna Dean have made up for us!
