Happy Saturday!

It is going to be an AMAZING day here in Kansas!  The temp today?  64.  Tomorrow?  72.  Monday? 70.  You didn't really come here for the forecast did you?  Well....it's going to be a good one!  And it's December?  I am baffled as well, but I'll take it!  We have a picnic at the park planned for day while the hubby is at the KState game!  They are playing Texas and I am going to be honest...I'm jealous he gets to go.  I am not usually a fan of college sports but its a great day for a game....and I do love football!

Ok enough of the weather and sports, lets turn it over to crafty stuff.  ;)  Here is my card for this weeks Retro Sketches...


The sketch for this week is so fun and CAS.  And I had to go and shrink it.  I made it in small scale for this card and I Think it turned out kinda fun!  I used some of my goodies from I {heart} papers today.  That paper is the oh so gorgeous Lucille by Basic Grey.  It has so many beautiful patterns in it, I just love the variety!  The cutie little coffee cup is one from the Paper Smooches, Warm Hearts set.  Hard to see in the pic, but I popped that heart up on foam tape.   I added in a little masked off sentiment from WPlus9's Fresh Picked, too.  

Ok so on to this week's sketch...

Stop over to the Retro Blog to see the sketch cards made by Arielle, Kasia and our December Guest, Brandi Hall!  I hope you get a chance to play along!  Thanks for stopping in!
