Love.

Happy Saturday!  I am sitting here ready to go to the gym this morning and I thought I would quickly type up my post.  We have limited treadmills....and there are 2 of us.  We have to get treadmills by each other.  It makes so it so much easier to have a buddy because then she can see if I walk a half a mile...or 3.  :)  Plus, today I am going to attempt running sprints with her.  Her sprints are 8 miles an hour...mine?  Not so much.  But hey, I am going to attempt running so I am automatically a winner.  Right?  :)

Ok so on to today's card.  It's time for another Retro Sketch.  This one is brought to you by the lovely Arielle.  You can see her original card HERE.  SO cute!

I used a large rectangle die from Lil Inkers to make the card frame.  Then I added a piece of embossed soft stone gray card stock behind.  I added in a heart and a sentiment and done!

Oh and I had to give it a little more so I added in a twine bow!

Here is this week's sketch...


Stop over to the Retro Sketches blog and see what Arielle and Kasia have for us today!

Have a great weekend!
