Greatest Blessings...

How come on the days where you have to get up, you could keep sleeping and don't want to get out of bed?  But on the days where you CAN sleep in, you wake up at 6am?  I hate this.  It's Saturday.  I could still be sleeping.  Everyone else is.  So I got up and here I am!  Typing up my post for Retro Sketches.  This week's sketch is so fun.  There are so many possibilities and I really can't wait to see what you do with it!  Here is what I did with it....


I used a Lil Inkers Rectangle die and a Lil Inkers Circle die to make the top layer.  I do love that stitched look.   Then I added in a sentiment from Simon Says Absolutely Delightful set.  I popped up the little envelope on foam tape and added in a little heart.  I layered this all on another piece of white card stock and then attached it all to the card base covered with Aqua Mist striped paper. 


Here is this week's sketch.....
